John Day River Territory

Take a journey through time in the John Day River Territory

The mighty waters of the wild and scenic John Day River define this region; sweeping past thousands of years of history just waiting to be discovered. Out here, cowboys and Native Americans aren’t just characters in old western movies, they’re a part of everyday life. Pull up a stool at a local watering hole and you’re bound to leave with a few good stories and new friends. Not to mention memories of epic landscapes, untamed waterways, ancient fossils, and the warm hospitality of this undiscovered gem.
