A nice relaxing place to watch wildlife. If you are in the Dallas area take an hour or two and see this peaceful and beautiful place brimming with life.

“Nice place to take a walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

If you like nature and birds this is a nice place to visit. There is a viewing area off Rt 22 but to really experience take the Coville Rd and take a hike in the preserve.

“Bird Watching, Nature and Hiking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

Baskett Slough offers some of the finest bird watching in the Willamette Valley. You may even catch a glimpse of a river otter, deer or elk. Several hikes take you through the refuge, and several observation areas give you a chance to see some wildlife and take in the views. No services are on site, but a picnic area with a clean bathroom can be found.

“Always good wildlife viewing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2014

It is great anytime of the year. A short drive from Salem, Dallas, Monmouth, or Independence. Wonderful birding in spring and fall, darn good the rest of the year as well.
