Elk River, OR

Sunshine Bar to Butler Bar

The Elk River is in Curry County three miles north of Port Orford, along the beautiful southern Oregon Coast. Seventeen miles of the mainstem and a two-mile segment of the North Fork Elk were designated Wild & Scenic in 1988; the remainder of the North Fork and the South Fork Elk were added in 2009.

The outstandingly remarkable values of the Elk River are its fisheries and water quality.
