Located in southwestern Oregon and extending into California, the U.S. Forest Service’s Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest ranges from the crest of the Cascade Range, west into the Siskiyou Mountains, and nearly to the Pacific Ocean. The RRSNF covers almost 1.8 million acres! Your RRSNF embraces a treasure of botanical diversity, and is home to 5 incredible Wild and Scenic rivers, isolated wilderness, outstanding fisheries and wildlife resources, and breathtaking landscapes of mountains, meadows, streams, and lakes.
The previously separate Rogue River and Siskiyou National Forests and their nine ranger district offices were administratively combined in 2004. In 2007, the nine ranger districts were consolidated to form five: High Cascades, Siskiyou Mountains, Wild Rivers, Gold Beach, and Powers. Field offices remain in or near the communities of Prospect, Butte Falls, Ruch, Grants Pass, Cave Junction, Brookings, Gold Beach, and Powers. The Forest also is home of the J. Herbert Stone Nursery, located near Central Point. The Supervisor’s Office is located in Medford, Oregon.
