  • Love seeing the elk and it seems they are always there. Magnificent animals. If you're lucky enough to travel with binoculars you'll always have a good view because often they are situated back near t...  more »
  • We were staying nearby and saw elk at a distance so decided to stop and try to get a closer look. We weren't disappointed. Dawn and dusk are supposed to be the best time to see them but I don't like d...  more »
  • Worth the stop here if you'd like to see some Elk. Saw a whole bunch both times I've stopped. Just East of Reedsport.

  • Very pretty spot with lots of wildlife. The gazebo is large, well cared for and shady. Nice place to stretch your legs on a trip
  • This is a great place to stretch your legs and get some terrific pictures of the elk. The herds are huge and don't mind people staring at them.
  • A Roosevelt Elk Reserve run by the Feds. Elk can usually be seen well with binoculars, especially during hunting season. Good parking for all sizes of vehicles. Large inclement weather gazebo and informational signs throughout. No camping permitted.
  • We saw about 50 elk in two different herds (the males and the harem, with 4-5 babies) around 11am. The viewing area has a pair of free binoculars (the kind you usually pay for at the beach) that you can use to get an up close view of the elk. There is plenty of parking and the two viewing areas are about 100 feet apart. One is covered, the other is an open deck. If you're from an area where there aren't elk (we are) this is a great opportunity to see them up close in their natural habitat.
  • We came by this place unexpectedly. The elk were right by the highway and were very beautiful.
