We are located on the spectacular Southern Oregon Coast, 35 miles north
of the California border. Turtle Rock Resort is on the banks of Hunter
Creek as it flows into the Pacific ocean. We are at the southern end of
the city of Gold Beach, three miles south of the Rogue River between
mileposts 330 and 331.
We have highway directional signs both north and south a quarter of a
mile from Hunter Creek Loop where you will turn. If you are coming from
the south take the second Hunter Creek Loop turn.
Driving up from California for a long stay, or heading down from Eugene
or Portland for a long weekend - here's how you'll find us....

fogged in airport on the Oregon Coast.

Advice: The Rand McNally site gives correct directions. Many
directional internet sites say to travel by way of Agness. That road is
usually closed but not signed closed for the first 20 miles. When not
closed it is a four wheel drive adventure at best.
BIG RIGS may want to take I-5 to Highway 42 at Roseburg to 101 and turn
south at Bandon. Drive down the coast to Gold Beach. It takes about 1/2
hour longer, but the roads are better suited for large RVs.
- From the north (Eugene, Salem, Portland and north), we recommend
going south on Interstate 5, then go west on Hwy. 42 west to Coquille
then 42 south to Bandon, then south on US 101 to Gold
- From the east (Grants Pass, Medford or Ashland), take Interstate 5
to Grants Pass, follow signs to Hwy. 199 in Grants Pass which takes you
into northern California briefly. Turn on Hwy. 197 which leads to US
101, follow US 101 north to Gold Beach.
- From the south (California travelers located in Sacramento and
south) are best advised to take Interstate 5 north to Hwy. 20 west
toward Ukiah, then US 101 north to Gold Beach.
