BOREDOM ALERT! This quiet little community doesn't have much in the way of activity, but serves as a gateway to other nearby spots that will please anyone willing to travel to them... So unless you can go places or like peace and quiet, this is probably not the best place to be on a vacation... I lived in this town for a good fifteen years, though, and my heart will always be nestled high in those douglass fir trees!
If you are boating or swimming in the North, South or Main Umpqua River. Please wear a life jacket, as all the rivers have bad undertows and swift running currents. These rivers are dangerous to the best of swimmers.
