Depoe Bay, Oregon

Depoe Bay, Oregon
~ World’s smallest Harbor ~

A small little harbor village in Lincoln County Oregon along U.S. Route 101. The village possesses amazing views of the Pacific Ocean. It had a population of around 1400 residents in 2010. The village is approximately 6 acres in size. It is well known as the “World’s smallest navigable harbor”. Depoe Bay was named after “Charley Depot”, a Siletz Indian who originally allotted the land in 1894 under the Dawes Act of 1887. He worked a military depot near Toledo Oregon and became well known in the area. The film “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” filmed their fishing trip sequence here in 1975 as well as restaurant scenes from the “Burning Plain” in 2008. The port was damaged by a tsunami during the Tohoku earthquake in Japan on March 11, 2011.

Rated: 4 of 5 stars. ~ Review by Leaf McGowan/Thomas Baurley,
