You can sight-see the beautiful coast, volcanic mountains, crystal-clear lakes and deserts that stretch as far as the eye can see. If you’re looking for world-class pinots, some of the best food and craft beer in the country, epic running, cycling, kayaking, windsurfing or just about anything else-ing, look no further.
The thing about exploring Oregon’s outdoors is that you’ll never be able to do it all in one lifetime. Hike the rugged coastline or the wooded Willamette National Forest. Camp in the desert near Steens Mountain or explore the snow-capped Wallowa Mountains (also known as “Little Switzerland”). Rent an RV and park yourself in the volcanic foothills of Mt. Hood, the old-growth beauty of the Umpqua National Forest, or a mountain lake in the Deschutes National Forest. Oregon State Parks offer beautiful picnicking spots as well as yurts, tepees, rustic cabins, and RV spots for rent.
