The State of Oregon was founded in 1859 and is located in the upper Northwest corner of the United States. Currently home to 4.19 million people, the state of Oregon is bordered by Washington State to the North, Idaho to the East, and California and Nevada to the South. It lies at the edge of the mighty Pacific Ocean and is home to one of the most beautiful coastlines in the United States.
Dubbed as the state that is home to more trees than people, Oregon can be geographically divided into six areas of lowlands, plateaus, and mountains. Featuring over 5 million acres of trees, 361 State parks, the deepest lake in the US, and the picturesque Cascade Mountains – Oregon is the nature lovers destination.

The 7 Regions of Oregon

As Oregon is so large and diverse at more than 360 miles long and 400 miles wide, it’s often divided up into seven different regions to make it easier to navigate. As you’re probably aware, the state sits on the west coast, sandwiched between California and Oregon, while Idaho lies to the east and Nevada to the south-east. Visitors can enjoy seaside towns along the Pacific, the dramatic Cascade Mountains with many alpine lakes, rushing rivers, high desert, valleys, cities, and much more.
