Spring has sprung!

GeocachingGo Geocaching

Geocaching is the merging of technology with outdoor adventuring. Fun for multiple generations, geocaching only requires a handheld GPS unit. Track down geocaches, or "treasure stashes," and then record your finds online. The Eugene, Cascades & Coast GeoTour offers four editions that stretch from the Oregon Coast to the Cascades. Each edition showcases a variety of natural wonders and historic landmarks and may take multiple days to complete. Geocaching is an excellent remedy for stir-crazy families ready to explore the regional landscape as it awakes from winter. Spotting daffodils, waterfalls and baby animals is a seasonal bonus.

Fishing the McKenzie River by Elizabeth KingCast Out A Line

Share the serenity of fishing with your children. An Oregon Fishing License is required for all anglers 13 years or older. Grab your fishing rods and head to local fishing spots. Popular family-friendly places include the Garden Lake Pond Park (easily accessed from Interstate 5 near Creswell), Delta Ponds (in Eugene), Fern Ridge Ponds (in Veneta). The U.S. Forest Service hosts family fishing days each spring where licenses are waved for one day at select locations so that everyone can cast out a line.

Lower Linton Falls by Jim DopkusChase Waterfalls

As the snow melts, creeks and waterways swell making for some spectacular waterfalls. Hike short trails to viewing platforms across the region to enjoy these natural wonders. We recommend Sweet Creek Falls in the Oregon Coast range for it's multiple falls and kid-friendly trails. Salt Creek Falls (Oakridge) and Sahalie Falls (McKenzie River) are easy to see with viewing platforms just a short walk from their parking lots.
