Sutherlin, Oregon
W E L C O M E     T O

Sutherlin, Oregon is a hunting and fishing paradise. There are seasons on Columbian white tailed deer, black tailed deer, Roosevelt Elk, black bear, bobcat, wild turkey, and many other wild birds and animals. For fishermen, Sutherlin has two dams and three creeks, all within a 5 minute drive from the city center. Sutherlin is also close to excellent fly fishing on the Umpqua River.

Sutherlin's prime location in one of the many valleys between the Cascade Mountain Range and the Coastal Mountain Range allows local wineries to produce prize winning, premium vintages. Many wineries have tasting rooms or offer tours (see links).

Experience the natural wonders of the area by taking the Rogue-Umpqua Scenic Byway. The route starts just a few miles south of Sutherlin on Highway 138 and follows the scenic North Umpqua River east from Roseburg, then heads south to follow the wild Rogue River. This 172 mile byway winds by beautiful natural areas, lush green forest, waterfalls and picturesque Diamond Lake. There are many places available for camping, hunting, fishing and hiking along this scenic byway.

Cooper Creek Reservoir is a 140 acre reservoir located two miles east in a valley adjoining Sutherlin. Fishermen can try for large mouthed bass, bluegill, crappie and stocked trout. On site facilities include a boat ramp, swimming facilities, pavilion, and many picnic areas. With many county parks, state parks, and the Crater Lake National Park nearby, there are many opportunities for recreation in Sutherlin.

    The 80 foot long Rochester Covered Bridge, spanning the Calapooya River is located approximately 4 miles northwest of Sutherlin just north of the intersection of Stearns Lane and Rochester Road. Built in 1933 and refurbished in 1969, it is considered one of the most beautiful covered bridges in Oregon.

    One of its distinguishing features is the graceful curved cathedral tops on the windows. The bridge is open to bikes, walkers, and local traffic.
