Port-Orford is located in southwestern Oregon along the Pacific coast, 27 miles from the town of Gold Beach. Historical Port Orford started as a fishing and lumber port, and that remains a primary industry of the town today. It is one of the oldest towns in Coos and Curry counties and one of Oregon's only true ocean harbors. Port Orford has spectacular ocean views and is a popular spot for fishing and crabbing, scuba diving, whale watching and wind surfing. The Elk and Sixes Rivers, just a few miles north of Port Orford are well known for their trout and salmon fishing and rafting. Float trips are also available on the rivers. Nine miles north of Port Orford stands Cape Blanco Lighthouse, the oldest standing lighthouse on the Oregon coast, which offers wonderful photographic opportunities. And, Cape Blanco State Park has fishing, hiking, camping and picnicking for visitors. Other points of interests near Port Orford include Battle Rock State Park, the Prehistoric Gardens, Humbug State Park and the black sands of Humbug Beach. A three-mile hike up Humbug Mountain is well worth the effort as it passes through a beautiful virgin forest that includes a grove of the rare Port Orford cedar. .

Port Orford Weather & Climate

The Brookings-Harbor Area, including Gold Beach and the other nearby coastal towns, is known as the "Banana Belt" of the Pacific Northwest. While most of the Oregon coast is blanketed with clouds and fog, the Banana Belt is usually sunny. During the summer months, this area of the coast may be cool and foggy in the mornings, but is soon nice and sunny. Temperatures in the summer are in the upper 60s or low 70s and drop into the mid-50s at night. Rainfall is rare during the summer months in the Banana Belt. During the wintertime, it's another story, with about 80 inches of rainfall per year from November through April. Temperatures in winter average in the 50s to 60s, but it's not uncommon for the thermometer to soar into the 70s or even low 80s. Snow and sleet are rare in this region, and Mt. Emily and Cape Blanco shelter the Banana Belt from high winds.
