Bring your camera! As you approach Reedsport from the east on Highway 38, on the edge of town is the Dean Creek Elk Viewing Area. This 1,040 acre preserve is home to a large herd of Roosevelt elk and other wildlife. This area is an important part of the state’s elk management program and provides plenty of opportunities to photograph and observe these beautiful animals. You won’t want to miss this opportunity to take some beautiful shots of some of the most majestic and interesting animals in Oregon. The herd of 60 to 100 Roosevelt elk roams freely in the protected pasture, woodland and wetland areas which are provided by the Bureau of Land Management and the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife with public viewing and education in mind. The viewing area has a large parking lot as well as restroom facilities and handicap access.

Located on the Umpqua River, the Umpqua Discovery Center houses numerous award-winning exhibits. This interactive educational and cultural center provides fun for people of all ages and interests as its interactive exhibits and programs illustrate how land, water and people have shaped each other over time in this part of coastal Oregon. Travel back in time in the award-winning cultural history exhibit “Tidewaters & Time”. Listen as a woman from the Kuuich Indian tribe tells stories to the children. Learn about the early explorers, canneries and logging of the early days. Visit life in a tidewater town of the 1900s and hear stories from the past in “I Remember, I Remember”. Hike the “Pathways to Discovery” on an indoor trail through the natural history of the area. Slide into the bear cave where you will find the bears hibernating, then travel up the trail to the weather station and listen to storm stories. The Subterranean Education Room provides video viewing on Seashore, Weather, Animal Homes & Skeletons. The trail ends at summer sunset on the dunes. The wonderful murals throughout the Center were painted by artist Peggy O’Neal of WOW Arts & Exhibits. Find the unique and unusual in the Book and Gift Ship.
