Southern Oregon Coast Hangout 2024 – Sold Out! Join the Waitlist!
August 1 - August 8
Registration is Open
We nicknamed this Hangout “Elements of Oregon” for the stunning views everywhere you look. Stretching from the border with California to the iconic Bandon Beach, this region boasts a coastline marked by dramatic sea stacks, pristine sandy shores, enchanting tide pools, and coastal redwood forests. Brookings will be our haven for seven days of outdoor adventures, with opportunities for hiking, kayaking, fishing, and exploring the Samuel H. Boardman Scenic Corridor’s stunning cliffs and hidden coves. You’ll have a unique experience walking the beach labyrinth of Circles in the Sand in Bandon. You’ll explore quaint coastal towns like Brookings and Gold Beach, each offering unique charm, fresh seafood, and welcoming communities.
Please note: With so many remarkable sites to see along the coastline, we have multiple days of scenic driving time. The time you spend behind the wheel is not merely a means to an end but an integral part of exploring the Southern Oregon Coast.
Historic Mail Route Jet Boat Experience the thrill of jet boating while touring the first Rogue River Mail delivery route started in 1895. Back then, road access did not exist. Ride one of the few remaining Mail Boats in the nation, which still delivers mail daily 32 miles upriver! No whitewater here. Just a beautiful day on the Rogue River sightseeing, spotting wildlife and sharing amazing history.
Trees of Mystery is nestled in the lush forests of northern California. You’ll explore this captivating natural attraction that beckons you with its towering redwoods and mystical ambiance. A highlight is the Sky Trail, a scenic gondola ride that elevates you through the towering canopy of ancient redwood trees. And, you’ll be greeted by the colossal figures of Paul Bunyan and his trusty blue ox, Babe, an extra treat!
Circles in the Sand Feel the powerful intentions of love, joy and kindness. With the beach as a fresh canvas, a labyrinth design is drawn freehand. The path unfolds organically as you walk one continuous path with no dead ends or wrong turns. A Dedication Circle, separate from the labyrinth, is usually available for walkers to write their name or dedicate their walk to someone by inscribing their name in the sand.
Harris Beach State Park Explore miles of sandy beaches with rocky outcroppings and trails. Enjoy easy to intermediate hiking, beachside picnicking, view Bird Island (also called Goat Island), a National Wildlife Sanctuary and breeding site for such rare birds as the tufted puffin. Watch gray whales on their winter and spring migrations, harbor seals, California sea lions, sea birds and the rich marine gardens.
AtRivers Edge RV Resort is located along the beautiful southern Oregon coast, minutes from Brookings and the Pacific Ocean. You’ll be tucked away on the banks of the Chetco River, a gateway to the Wild and Scenic Region and the Kalmiopsis wilderness. Enjoy private river access for paddling and fishing, wooded surroundings and close proximity to pristine ocean beaches and nature trails.
