Steamboat Inn is noted for – among many things – it’s superb location on the edge of one of the most scenic rivers in the U.S. – The North Umpqua River.  It is the headquarters for fly fisherpersons who come to embrace the challenge of the trout, steelhead and salmon fishing the North Umpqua uniquely offers.

The Umpqua National Forest surrounds Steamboat Inn. You can hike the North Umpqua Trail, visit Susan Creek Falls, and watch Salmon and Steelhead surmount the falls at the Swiftwater Park area a few miles away.

The accommodations,  fine dining, wines, chef, innkeepers and staff are first class. The fly shop and guide services are 5 Star.

Yet, I am always mesmerized by the gardens at the Steamboat Inn. On recent trips in July and August 2016, I captured the images I am SHARING LINKS TO BELOW of the phenomenal flora that inhabits this paradise.
