“Beautiful River”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2012

If your in Southern Oregon traveling south to California and you have some time, Take off through Grants Pass Oregon and head to Cresent City California. You will follow the Smith River. This river is a beautiful emerald green and flows through some rugged canyons. You can play, fish, camp and check out some gold mines along the way. There is one small motel along the route, Pats Acres, and a couple of camp sites. You also have Jedidiyah Smith park and Amelia Erhart park on the drive with some beautiful redwoods.

“Beautiful water”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2012

Go in early summer when the snow melt is filling the river. The water is so crystal clear and the most amazing blue water that it looks like someone added coloring to it. Love this area. Great white water if your are and experienced paddler.

“Stunning river!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2012

The Smith River is the clearest, most beautiful scenic river I know of. It is worth the winding drive for the views, fishing and swimming. As a bonus it is only a few miles from the Southern Oregon Coast...even more of natures beauty!

“Awesome River Views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2011

Many great views of the river along this family drive. The Patrick's Creek Restaurant was a great balance of atmosphere, view, food & price. Many times we have order saute`ed mushrooms and a bottle of wine and dined by the creek. I can't recommend spending the night ot the inn.
