Jewell Meadows Wildlife Area reviews
The herd was there and it was amazing picture opportunity and for children (and adults) to see these large animals up close. more »
We were travelling between Seaside and Portland on the 26, and saw the brown binoculars sign for wildlife viewing. We wanted to see what was there, so we took the indicated turn, and started driving..... more »
On the 68 mile stretch along this road from Astoria to Vernonia, other than the "We Hate Bicyclists" Bar at mile 11, there is absolutely NOTHING! Therefore this rest stop - with sparkling bathrooms available 24/7 - at about mile 29 is crucial. (To be fair, the bar charges (non-purchasing visitors) a reasonable $1 to use their bathrooms)
Stoped to see if any Elk were out, there were not. It was the middle of the day. Hung out had a smack and enjoyed the gorgeous view.
