Where Man and Nature Meet

Morrow County is a rural north-eastern Oregon county, bordered by the Columbia River at its Northern end and timbered by the Umatilla National Forest on the southern border with stretches of desert, hills, flat-lands and creeks lying between. Though the area of the county is over 2,000 square miles, the population is only 11,100. There are five main communities: the cities of Boardman and Irrigon along the Columbia River and Ione, Lexington and Heppner farther south. It offers many water sports, camping, fishing, and site-seeing. It is also the home of Lewis & Clark Expedition Sites as well as having the Oregon Trail passing right through it.
