Collier Memorial State Park offers visitors , hiking, camping, historical information, world class fishing, picnicking, and much much more.

Collier Memorial State Park features an outdoor museum of historic logging equipment and a relocated pioneer village. As the state’s finest logging museum, you’ll see rare and antique logging equipment dating to the 1880s as well as more recent pieces. Railroad buffs will enjoy learning about the role the railroad played in logging. Your can imagine the rugged woodsmen and the immense task of moving raw timber they tackled with innovation and brute force. The pioneer village gives you another insight into how these families once lived.

The Williamson River and crystal-clear Spring Creek meet in the park. The Williamson River is regionally famous for its quality trout fishery and consistently produces trophy fish. Spring Creek gushes dramatically out of a nearby spring and then paints a picture-perfect scene at it flows through the park.

In the summer, movies about old-time logging and other topics are shown every Friday, Saturday and Sunday night. The series continues right through Labor Day. During the day, the park naturalist schedules short hikes along the Williamson River. Check the park when you arrive for a list of times.

Vital Stats: The park is open from April through October. The campground has 50 sites with full hookup, and 18 tent sites (maximum site 60 feet) all available on a first-come, first-served basis. This park has laundry facilities. For more information call (541)783-2471 or (800) 551-6949.

From high atop the rim of Crater Lake, you can see what a wonder the world really is. A hike down to the water reveals new wonders. The water is so blue, so deep, it’s no surprise it’s the deepest lake in America, and one of the deepest on earth. That’s why it’s one of the 7 Wonders of Oregon.

Surrounded by cliffs almost 2,000 feet high and boasting a picturesque island a violent volcanic past, Crater Lake is also home to hikes in old-growth forest and cross-country ski trips in the winter months. Many of the roads and facilities close during the winter, but the park is open and accessible all year long.
Crater Lake is located in Southern Oregon, which is also home to the world-renowed Oregon Shakespeare Festival, the stunning Rogue River, the Oregon Caves and vineyards, chocolatiers and cheesemakers galore. 

CLIMATE: Most visitors come to Crater Lake National Park during the months of July through mid-September, when the weather is generally mild with little precipitation. Due to the elevation of the park (6,500 ft. at Park Headquarters and 7,100 ft. at Rim Village), weather conditions may change quickly and a warm jacket and wool sweater are always recommended items to carry. During the winter months, from October through June, weather conditions make preparing for extreme winter conditions necessary. Blizzards, high winds, extreme cold and low visibility dominate the weather patterns. Visitors should come with cold weather gear.

RECREATION: A good place to begin your visit to Crater Lake is at one of the two visitor centers. The Steel Information Center lies south of Rim Drive next to park headquarters and is open year-round. In summer the Rim Village Visitor Center is open along Rim Drive on the southern side of the caldera. After gathering information on the park and its facilities visitors can make educated decisions about what recreation opportunities to pursue. Hiking, backpacking, camping, picnicking and sight seeing are popular pursuits within the park. Boating and scenic driving around Rim Drive can be enjoyed by visitors during the summer months. In winter snowshoeing and cross-country skiing provide solitude and a little-known view of the park.

One of the best kept secrets in the Oregon golf world is a nine-hole track in Reedsport named Forest Hills Country Club. Don’t let that Country Club stuff fool you, the course is open to the public and offers all the amenities including pro shop, grass practice range, golf cars, locker rooms, restaurant and bar. Playing at about 3200 yards, you might think this will be an easy test of golf but don’t forget you’re at sea level, so the ball won’t travel quite as far as those high desert courses. Forest Hills was built in 1964 by International Paper and while the mill is gone, the course remains a tremendously playable asset to Reedsport and the South Central Oregon Coast. Very affordable at just $30.00 for 18 holes, Forest Hills is a favorite of many Bandon caddies who just don’t want to play golf in a four club wind. Try Forest Hills for yourself! Visit golfreedsport.com or call 541-271-2626 for more information.

Activities at Fort Rock include viewing the rock, hiking, picnicking, viewing interpretive displays and viewing wildlife.

Hike around and you’ll soon realize it’s even bigger than it looks! It’s an old shield volcano set in what was a shallow sea in prehistoric times. A half mile hiking trail is found inside the crater. As you walk around inside, imagine the early American Indians who canoed to and from what was then an island. Human-made artifacts found nearby are the oldest ever discovered in Oregon.

Vital Stats: There is no fee to use this park. For information, call 1-800-551-6949.

Recreation opportunities are plentiful, and popular activities include fishing, hunting, backpacking, cross-country and downhill skiing, camping, and leisure driving. The Chewaucan, Sycan, and Sprague Rivers are the major streams originating on Forest lands. Many of the Forest’s small lakes and reservoirs are popular fishing and camping areas.

The Deschutes has established campgrounds located throughout the Forest. If you prefer more solitude or want to explore the backcountry, most of the Forest is open for dispersed or backcountry camping. Some regulations apply.

Game animals most often hunted include mule deer, Rocky Mountain elk, and pronghorn antelope. Several varieties of trout inhabit Forest lakes and streams, and a few lakes also support warm-water fish, such as largemouth bass. Waterfowl such as Canada geese, whistling swans, and mallards are frequently seen.

Expansive views, dramatic cliffs and solitude are what you’ll find in the Fremont National Forest. Located in “Oregon’s Outback”, the Forest provides the self reliant recreationist the opportunity to discover nature in a rustic environment. There are 1.2 million acres to explore. A gentle to moderate terrain prevails over most of the Forest and elevations range between 4,000 and 8,000 feet. Habitats range from near-desert to lush coniferous forests.

The Gearhart Mountain Wilderness, totaling 22,823 acres, is the Forest’s only Wilderness. Its dominant topographic feature is Gearhart Mountain which is 8,380 feet at the summit. Picturesque rock formations cap most of the high-elevation ridge tops. Panoramic views of surrounding mountain ranges are provided on clear days. The Wilderness provides important summer range for Rocky Mountain elk. Rainbow trout are periodically stocked at Blue Lake, the only lake in the Wilderness. Both rainbow and brook trout inhabit the small streams.
