Overview

TEMPORARY CLOSURE FROM WILDFIRES The Silver Creek and Rennie’s Landing boat launches on the north shore of the McKenzie River; as well as All day use and dispersed camping on Goodpasture Road along the south shore are temporarily closed to public use due to damage from the 2020 wildfire season. We are working to mitigate the damage and return access for the public as quickly as possible.

Overview:

This Watchable Wildlife site is located at the Silver Creek public boat ramp. A short walk leads to a wooden viewing platform, which overlooks the McKenzie River. Here, osprey, waterfowl, beaver, and deer can be sighted near the river's shore. The boat launch is paved, which provides easy access for vehicles from Highway 126. Interpretive and informative signs are found in several locations at the Watchable Wildlife site.
