This little oasis along highway 101 is a peaceful spot to boondock. There is occasional traffic from cars stopping before they cross the Reedsport bridge which is constantly maintained and upgraded. But not too busy to enjoy the bird sanctuary all around.
One can spend hours watching the birds and wildlife busying themselves with daily life. This area also affords a place where RV's can park to eat lunch, or just take a break before they continue their journey on 101.
Bolon Island Tideways State Scenic Corridor is a state park in the U.S. state of Oregon, administered by the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department. The 11.4-acre park is on Bolon Island 10 river miles from the mouth of the Umpqua River and north of Reedsport.
It is along Highway 101 and near the site, where in 1828, most of Jedediah Smith's party were massacred. The land was given to the state in 1934 by William C. and Jennie D. Chamberlain.
The park is undeveloped except for a parking area and a hiking trail.
