Property description

Just 18 miles up Oregon Scenic Highway 38 from Reedsport, is the historic town of Scottsburg. One of Oregons oldest communities; there is not much here now except for a number of homes along the banks of the Umpqua River. The temperature is often a good ten degrees warmer than the coast, and with the towering cliffs of pine trees, and the river flowing peacefully by, you will realise this is a very special place.
This charming cabin has a rustic log interior. The cabin has a full kitchen with all the modern amenities, a full bathroom. There are two bedrooms - the master with queen bed, a desk, and storage. The walls have a small gap up the top so some light and noise does transfer from room to room. Most folks never notice it. The second room is smaller with two twin beds.
The cottage is set about 150 feet from the River on over an acre of property. The cabin shares the property with a main house that is not rented out or used when the cabin is rented. Please note you are not able to see the river completely from the cabin, as the lot has clusters of trees that provide shade. This is a perfect place to have a private getaway or bring the kids for swimming and fishing in the river during the day and campfires in the evening. (Please note there is a complete fire ban in the county in peak summer season - that means no campfires, fireworks, or charcoal grills). We do provide a gas grill in order to BBQ.
The river is tidal, and this is the last stretch of the Umpqua you can get a motor boat to. Beyond the bridge it is too rocky, and shallow. There is a dock, and boat ramp just two miles away. We can provide referrals to a number of excellent local fishing guides if you would like to try your hand.
Our dock is in the river during summer months only. Its the perfect place to sit, and soak up the sun, or jump off into the river to cool down.
Scottsburg is less than twenty minutes to the west of Elkton, where you can go wine tasting, visit the Butterfly Pavilion and Education Center, or tour Fort Umpqua - a replica of the Hudson Bay Trading Company fur trading outpost. Scottsburg is 20 minutes east from Reedsport. Activities in Reedsport and Winchester Bay include; Dean’s Creek Elk Viewing, Umpqua Discovery Center, Umpqua Lighthouse State Park, ocean fishing, crabbing, sand dunes, and much more!!
There is a general store in Scottsburg just a short drive away,or the nearest shops are in Reedsport. Please note that AT&T does not work here. Verizon, and Sprint seem to. We love it because we leave our phones off, and our troubles goodbye.
There is room to park your RV, boat trailer etc. No cable TV but we have a good selection of videos, books, or family games.
Please note that no pets are allowed at this time.
If you have any further questions about the area, or property please do not hesitate to email or call.
Thanks, John and Kaycee

Area Fishing Guide
The Umpqua has one of the most varied river fisheries in Oregon, including a world-class smallmouth bass fishery and strong runs of spring and fall chinook. The Umpqua’s north and south forks come together northwest of Roseburg, and the mainstem flows more than 100 miles northwest to Winchester Bay. Smallmouth bass fishing begins at the top of tidewater and continues up to the forks and into the South Umpqua. Late winter and early spring offer trophy fishing for the Umpqua’s largest bass, while the warm summers bring fishing so fast and furious that an angler could tally 200 fish in a very busy day. Spring chinook are fished from late March into July, with best catches usually in April and May. Fall chinook start moving up in August and September, although the bigger fishery for them is in Winchester Bay (see below). Hatchery coho are planted in the South Fork and move through the mainstem quickly after the first fall rains. Both winter and summer steelhead fishing can be good, with summer fish peaking in June and July on their way to the North Umpqua. The larger winter run sometimes includes a fishery for wild steelhead, and hatchery fish on their way to the South Umpqua are present in good numbers. There is usually good steelhead fishing from December into March. The Umpqua also has a good run of shad that arrives in May and June. Shad are fished from Scottsburg upstream, including popular spots at Sawyer Rapids, Yellow Creek and the forks.

Umpqua River, North Fork
Treasured for its good runs of wild and hatchery summer steelhead, the gorgeous North Umpqua is also fished for wild winter steelhead, spring chinook and fin-clipped coho, and it offers fine trout fishing above Soda Springs Reservoir. A mix of hatchery and wild summer steelhead enters the North Umpqua in June, with catches high in July and August and again in October and November after the water cools. The river’s winter run gets going well in January but these days is primarily wild fish. Spring chinook are present from April through October, with peak catches in May through July. Trout fishing is best above Soda Springs Reservoir for both rainbows and browns. There is a popular fly fishing-only stretch in the 31 miles of river below the reservoir’s dam.


Winchester Bay
The Umpqua River’s bay at Reedsport and Gardiner is a great producer of fall chinook salmon, and it also has good numbers of fin-clipped coho salmon, sturgeon, striped bass, perch, crabs and softshell clams. Fall chinook fishing is very popular, providing catches from July through September. Hatchery coho – along with lots of wild fish – are caught in good numbers in late summer and early fall. Fishing for white sturgeon is good in winter into spring. Striped bass move between Winchester Bay and the lower Smith River, with some good bay fishing from June to October. Perch and rockfish are caught in numerous locations from boats, jetties and docks. Crabbing is popular from boats and a pier in Half Moon Bay. Softshell clams are abundant on the flats off Bolon Island and elsewhere. Boats from the ports also access offshore fishing for salmon and other species.

Area Hunting
Great local hunting in the valley and surrounding hills. This cabin is the perfect location in the fall/ winter season to base yourself for outdoor adventure in the area. Scottsburg is located close to the Siuslaw, Melrose and Tioga units - home to bear, cougar, deer, elk, wild turkey, game birds and more! See local fishing information at bottom of this page. Plenty of room for a group of hunters or fishermen to relax an unwind after a day on the river or on the trail.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Our family have lived on this river for 25 years, and we grew up here. When this property came on the market for the first time in 50 years, we new we had to make a move. With a stream running through the property, tall trees, and the river front location, we love this place as a getaway from our busy lives in Portland. We have spent the last year preparing to rent the cabin, and have added a new roof, and fixtures and furnishings. We do hope you will enjoy this special part of Oregon as much as we do, and look forward to welcoming you to Camp Umpqua.
