Malheur National Forest Guide

Located in the Blue Mountains along the eastern border of Oregon, the Malheur National Forest covers over 1.7 million acres. Created by President Theodore Roosevelt in 1908, this forest varies in elevation from 4,000 feet in its deepest valleys to 9,038 feet at the peak of Strawberry Mountain. Inside the forest are two wilderness areas—Monument Rock Wilderness and Strawberry Mountain Wilderness. Several roads run through the forest, most of which are gravel or dirt, making access to its interior available for RVs up to 40 feet in length. The scenery is impressive, and horses are welcome to explore those deep valleys where the streams are packed with fish. People from as far away as Portland and Eugene, OR, love to visit this beautiful forest while staying in nearby communities like Canyon City, OR.

With the living quarters provided by an RV, you are well rested when you arise the next day for a new set of adventures.
