Port Orford

Port Orford was established in 1851 and is the oldest platted townsite on the Oregon Coast. Now it is a haven for the outdoors enthusiast and a great place to take a break from the crowds. Visit the town to fish and dive off the dock, windsurf the coves of Floras Lake, hike and fly fish the Elk and Sixes rivers, hunt for agates on nearby beaches, or snap one-of-a-kind photographs from the cliffs. It is also a good place for whale or storm watching.

Port Orford is the only port in Oregon right on the ocean and not in a protected bay. A unique feature is that boats are lifted onto the dock, rather than moored in the water.

This town of 1,200 offers lodging at state and RV parks and motels, dining at cafes, and curio and gallery shopping. Port Orford Heads State Park’s historic Coast Guard Lifesaving Station is a museum open to the public. The town celebrates the Fourth of July and Labor Day with festivals. Visitor information is provided at the Battle Rock Wayfinder Point.
