The Fremont-Winema National Forest is located in the south central part of Oregon.
Where is this Forest?


Welcome to Fremont-Winema National Forest

Beautiful yellows on the trees along a river in autumn.


Framed by major migratory bird flyways, the Fremont-Winema National Forest offers a setting of classic Western beauty derived from the land’s volcanic legacy. The ecosystem ranges from towering snow-capped peaks to wide-open sage basins. Pivotal to the economy and communities of south central Oregon, this 2.3 million acre forest is known for its many recreational opportunities, scenic vistas and wild places where visitors can still find solitude.
