Reedsport is at the heart of the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area, the largest expanse of coastal sand dunes in North America. In addition to hiking and dune buggy rides, visitors here enjoy crabbing and fishing at Winchester Bay, shopping at specialty stores, gourmet dining and visits to the century-old Umpqua River Lighthouse.
This southern Oregon coast town is fully awake every Father’s Day Weekend with the buzzing of chainsaws for the Annual Oregon Divisional Chainsaw Sculpting Championship competition. Attendees will see large Sitka Spruce logs transformed into works of art by world-class chainsaw sculptors. There are daily quick-carve competitions and live auctions, and an overall People’s Choice Award. The weekend also has a car show, a live band concert on Friday night and lots of fun things to watch and even participate in.
