Top of the line fishing resort as far as we are concerned. Everyone here is friendly, helpful, and happy. Big K is a multi-generational ranch in a beautiful location, even in the rain! Bass galore on the Umpqua River plus impressive chinook salmon. Ours were cleaned by our guide right on the drift boat and frozen by one of the... More

We went to Big K as a family outing; with intentions to fish, explore and hit the coast. We were taken with the view and beauty. Unfortunately, we were under constant scrutiny by the staff and the only other guest complained about our kids and my boyfriends cigar smoke. Our meal was slow and over-priced, but good. I suppose the... More

The Big K is located in a beautiful part of Oregon with the pleasant small town of Elkton near by. It is close to the Oregon coast and not too far from Eugene. The picturesque landscape makes a perfect backdrop for a wedding ceremony as well as a great reception! Kathy and her crew have everything worked and are experts.... More

My husband is an avid fly fisherman and I enjoy plein air painting. The big K is well suited to satisfy both of our needs. A few hours drive from Portland, and we had a very pleasant weekend. He raved about his fishing day with his guide. I did 2 paintings in the lovely setting. We stayed in their most... More

We came here for a Valentines day murder mystery dinner. A great way to spend the stormy evening. The dinner and show were fabulous. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We will come back when it's not so stormy to enjoy this hunting and fishing paradise. Bring a book to sit on the deck of the lodge and enjoy... More

We have visited Big K, four times within the last 18 months and we LOVE IT! We usually take advantage of the bird hunting preserve. Fog, rain, and warm sunny days make the course all the more fun and challenging for the dogs, birds, and hunters. The staff...are awesome. Cathy, Linda, Leslie, Tammy, and Dwayne to name a few.

Every two years, the Stearns family holds a reunion so that the extended family doesn't lose contact with one another. So far, we've met in 9 different States and this year 47 of us (ages 6mos to 85) met at the Big K Ranch in Elton, OR. We couldn't have chosen a more beautiful location or more hospitable staff.
