The Umpqua River Lighthouse was built in 1893. It stands 67 feet high and is one of the few lighthouses that still uses the original lenses. Its beam can be seen 20 miles out to sea and there’s a whale-watching platform to view California gray whales during the annual migrations.

This unique area of windswept sand is the result of millions of years of wind, sun, and rain erosion on the Oregon Coast.  Take an Oregon Dunes tour or rent an ATV at Pacific Coast Recreation.



Salmon Harbor at Winchester Bay is one of the largest sport-boat marinas on the Oregon coast.  Charter boating is available in Winchester Bay offering great fishing trips and tours, year round.
