Located in sunny north central Oregon, Wheeler County is the least populated and one of the most beautiful counties in the state. Fossil digging, fishing, rafting, hiking and camping are among the many fun and educational activities that abound here; it's a great place to escape for a weekend adventure.
Wheeler County has been billed as a "Geologic Wonderland".
It is rugged and uneven , with the terrain varying widely from deep river canyons to high timbered mountains covered in pine and fir. Portions of the Ochoco and Umatilla National Forests lie within its boundaries, covering nearly one third of the county. The three units of the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument are located all or in part within Wheeler County featuring painted hills, petrified mudslides and lava flows, unique geologic formations and one of the most outstanding depositories of prehistoric plant and animal fossils in the world. The county is also a hunters' paradise for big game and for world-class bass fishing along the John Day River.
The county's three communities, Fossil, Mitchell and Spray offer great home cooking at local cafes. Accommodations range from motels to quaint bed & breakfasts to working dude ranches. The Wheeler County Bluegrass Festival, the first weekend of July in Fossil, is also one of many favorite events.
