Prairie City, Oregon

Eastern Oregon


Prairie City is located in Eastern Oregon, where there are miles of scenic byways and alpine vistas great for motorcycling and bicycling enthusiasts. Working cattle ranch country and basalt canyons are still the place for explorers to make their mark.

 

Sitting on the edge of a vast grassland, surrounded by the Strawberry Mountains on one side and layers of ancient lava rock on the other, the area’s lakes and rivers are popular with fishermen casting for steelhead and mountain trout. It is an easy trip to the trailhead of the Strawberry Mountain Wilderness for excellent day or multi-day hikes or horseback trips. 

 

Prairie City sits on the Journey Through Time Oregon Scenic Byway and offers visitors several shopping, dining and lodging choices in its historic main street area. You will find gas, groceries, gifts, and souvenirs. There are restaurants, banks, beauty salon, DeWitt Museum and RV Park, antique store, coffee shop, plant nursery with gardening supplies, nursing home, hospice service, churches, western wear store, and lodging at your choice of several Bed and Breakfasts, vacation rentals or hotel.
