The Winchuck River, located 5 miles south of Brookings, is the southernmost Oregon river comprising America's Wild Rivers Coast. Though it is small by Oregon standards, the Winchuck boasts healthy runs of steelhead, sea-run cutthroat trout, chinook and coho salmon.

Five major tributaries make up the Winchuck River system.

The Winchuck is home to most of Oregon's last remaining ancient redwood forests.

Wildlife is prevalent in the watershed and include Spotted Owl and Marbled Murrelet.

Camping, hiking, picnicing, swimming, and rafting are common along the Winchuck River and its tributaries.

Private property and pasture grounds line both banks of the river.
