Easily accessed right off Hwy 38. The Elk are so beautiful and generally are there when I have passed by. It's a beautiful place. Definitely a must and bring your camera!

Always fun to be able to see the Elk so close to the road. Once in awhile they are in the back of the fields or not visible at all, but for the most part an excellent viewing area. This time there were many up close and personal

A fairly nice little roadside pull-off which spans probably a half mile or so. Plenty of elk roaming around the area all day long grazing.

The folks at the Coos Bay campground suggested we detour 3 miles off 101 to to 38 east to see the Roosevelt Elk since we were only driving our RV to Florence, we had plenty of time. So, why not? We had seen elk in northern CA at Klamath and they were fun to watch; however, the elk at Dean Creek were larger and closer to view. I'm so glad the folks gave us a heads up on this place because it was so much better than the CA site. Now across the street from the elk is a beautiful Rhododenron Garden...but alas, we had to get back on the road to complete our 54 mile trip to Florence and see what they have to offer. Another time I would plan to see both attractions as they are worth the little side trip.

The elk are just one of the attractions here. The number and assortment of birds is just outstanding also. Heres a tip; the Elk and birds don't like yelling screaming children. Keep the kids quiet and let them learn a little about nature.
