Dean Creek Elk Viewing Area ~ December 13, 2009

Dean Creek Elk Viewing Area
Highway 38 - 3 miles east of Reedport
Roosevelt elk are Oregon’s largest land mammals, weighing up to 1,100 pounds and standing as tall as five
feet at the shoulder. Antlers of the Roosevelt elk, which are status symbols during the fall rut, can reach spreads of nearly three feet.  The Roosevelt elk are not the only animals that call this area home – the wetlands and the creek hum with life.













This is a magnificent area for viewing wildlife and the elk.
There is a large interpretive display about the elk and the other residents of the marsh.

The area has extensive pull-outs and parking,
restroom facilities and is handicap accessible.
It would be a nice place to car picnic.
