For real coastal fun, head south to the Southern Oregon Coast

For out-of-state tourists, the Oregon destinations that always seem to top the list are Portland, nearby Multnomah Falls, wine country and the northern coastal communities of Astoria, and Cannon Beach.

Even many of Portland’s day trippers think the same way (albeit they’ll likely skip a trip to the falls, which are especially crowded on summer weekends).

However, there’s a region that deserves the attention of tourists and locals alike: the sometimes overlooked but by no means less spectacular Southern Oregon Coast, anchored by the city of Coos Bay.

While Cannon Beach and Astoria surely charm with smooth beaches and quaint cabin rentals, Coos Bay on the southern coast boasts equally smooth beaches, but with rockier, more rugged shorelines, where commercial and residential development are nearly non-existent. And, with 40 miles of coastal sand dunes that soar up to 500 feet above sea level, the southern coast offers a year-round action adventure playground.

Plus there’s always something to do, especially in the spring and summer, no matter what the month.


Storm watching is a prime winter coastal activity, but generally there are still a few storms to catch in April, too. Stake your claim near the Shore Acres Garden in Shore Acres State Park, where, perched atop an 80-foot cliff, you can watch 20-foot ocean swells erupt into 120-foot splashes that crash on the rocky shores.

The overlook area is also a prime viewing point for whale watching, too.

And if you really want to tap into the local experience, go clamming along the bay. Spring tides are favorable for clamming Empire Clams, so if you put in the necessary work, you’re guaranteed success.


Every year, tall ships set sail for Coos Bay during the city’s annual ‘Festival of Sails’ event. (If you’re wondering what tall ships look like, think Pirates of the Caribbean.) From May 5 to 17, in recognition of Coos Bay’s rich history as a tall ship port, the ships will take tourists on a tour of the bay, culminating in mock naval battles featuring booming cannons. Of course, you don’t need to board the tall ships to watch the battle play out—you can view the entire spectacle from North Bend or Mill Casino boardwalks.

And for the fifth straight May, The Mill Casino Hotel & RV Park will host BBQ Blues & Brews on the Bay, a three-day outdoor Memorial Day weekend party that draws, regional craft brewers and as many as 50 pitmasters from across the Pacific Northwest who will compete in KCBS (Kansas City BBQ Society) sanctioned competition to determine who makes the best barbecue.

June and July

When the tourists season hits its stride during the temperate peak summer months, it’s the perfect time to travel to the bay to take advantage of the RV Sites, campsites and the hundreds of miles of hiking trails that connect Sunset Bay, Shore Acres and Cape Arago state parks. The area also boasts two days of waterfront fireworks on July 3rd and July 4th.

June and July are also the prime months to play in the dunes at Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area, where you can hike, go off-roading, horseback ride or fish. But if you’re looking for something a little more edgy, visit Spinreel Dune Buggy and ATV Rental, and take an armada of buggies out for a spin.

At Any Time

Of course, there are always activities tourists can take part in, no matter what time of year. The Southern Oregon Coast is home to the Bandon Dunes Golf Resort, a sprawling athletic compound where tourists can mingle with serious golfers on six different courses. And should those golfers feel the desire to play some table games, The Mill Casino will fetch—and return—them via the casino’s shuttle bus.

The Coos History Museum offers a great starting point for first-time visitors to gain familiarity with the area’s rich heritage – especially its tribal and maritime history – thoughtfully preserved in more than 50,000 objects and 250,000 images.

Lastly, for those who just want to get away from all of it—even for only an hour—there are always sunset strolls along Horsfall Beach. The locals know this spot well: It’s one of the few local beaches where they can let their dogs off leash, and, if one travels there at just the right time, they just might find that they have the entire beach all to themselves.

Top 7 Reasons to Visit Oregon’s Adventure Coast

Uncategorized Comments Off

“Most Oregonians have never visited the southern coast,” says Katherine Hoppe, Tourism and Content Manager at The Mill Casino Hotel & RV Park on Coos Bay along the coast. “It’s too bad, because there are spectacular things here that you just don’t get in other parts of the state.”

The small, coastal towns of the Adventure Coast – Coos Bay, North Bend and Charleston – offer endless opportunities for exploration and relaxation. Here are just seven of the beautiful, historic and exciting reasons to visit.

1) Fantastic Fishing

Fishing enthusiasts will find something to hook every month of the year. Fall is the season for Chinook salmon, albacore, crabs and clams. Steelhead return in winter, while spring adds rockfish and bass. In summer, look for ocean salmon and bluegill.

2) Giant Jackpots

Gamers can play with extra confidence on the southern coast. Instead of only jackpots that go to participants in a large, multi-state pool, The Mill Casino has in-house progressive jackpots that someone gaming at that casino could win.

“Right now we have two jackpots over $100,000,” said Hoppe. “It’s unusual for them to be so big, but we’re going to have two huge winners any day.

3) Dramatic Stormwatching

Coastal stormwatching is all about the huge swells created after a storm has passed. Best done the day after a storm, seat yourself safely atop an 80-foot cliff at Shore Acres State Park and enjoy the spectacular crash and roil of 100-foot waves.

4) Beautiful State Parks

There are four state parks in the area that are perfect for serious day hikes, leisurely walks and birdwatching.

“Of all the state parks in the area, Golden and Silver Falls [State Natural Area] is a hidden gem,” says Hoppe. “I recommend it to everyone interested in hiking.”

5) 500-Foot Dunes

Imagine driving an ATV over the open dunes. Suddenly, you crash through a stream, and then you’re surrounded by dense forest. Experience that and more at the Oregon Dunes – wind-sculpted wonders that change each year, giving visitors unique landscapes to discover.

6) Rich Oregon History

Lovers of Oregon history will enjoy the historic area, including museums and classic architecture. Start at the Coos History Museum, or grab a brochure to discover your own corner of Southern Oregon’s history.

7) First-Class Accommodations

There are several waterfront hotels and resorts for all kinds of travelers to Oregon’s southern coast. After a fun-filled day of beachcombing, hiking or sightseeing, unwind with premium amenities at one of the area’s deluxe getaways.

The Mill Casino Hotel & RV Park hosts thousands of visitors throughout the year. Hoppe is an expert on all of the activities available in and around the hotel.

“There’s literally a season for everything on Oregon’s Adventure Coast,” she said. “It’s a wonderful place to explore year-round.”

Favorite Hiking Trails

Community, Coos Bay, Employee Stories, Local Attractions, Uncategorized Comments Off

It’s a popular question we get asked a lot, and a tough one to get a straight answer about… So without knowing a lot about you, we’re going to go out on a limb and just tell you our favorites. Strap on your hiking boots, a water bottle and get going!

Cape Arago State Park

Made for those who believe hiking is just walking with great scenery…  the Oregon Coast Trail is the one trail you should do if your just here for a short visit. It starts at Sunset Bay State Park and is an easy hike. You can separate it out into a shorter trail by ending at Shore Acres State Park, or make it a good long hike by going all the way to Cape Arago State Park.

South Slough Estuary courtesy of Liz Dodge

For those that love wildlife viewing and nature, the South Slough Estuary Trails are the pick for you.  There’s a whole system of trails at this federal reserve and hikers can take; from short easy hikes to longer more difficult ones.  There’s also an interpretive center where reserve employees can help you choose the trail best suited for you.  Trail maps can be downloaded here.

Dellenback Trail courtesy of South Coast Striders

We’re not gonna lie… the Dellenback Dune Trail is a tough hike,  you’ll be climbing through loose sand, there’s no restrooms in-between and if the wind kicks up, you’ll be treated to a free facial. But oh the views and the sense of accomplishment you’ll have as you travel from the top of the dunes to the beach… dress in layers, bring plenty of water and plan to spend a few hours on this trail.  There is an easier self-guided interpretive trail for those that want an easier experience.

And for those that want to meet fellow hikers, check out our South Coast Striders hiking schedule, visitors are always welcome and encouraged to participate

Storm Watching, Whale Watching and Shore Acres: The Delights of the Southern Oregon Coast

Coos Bay Comments Off

By Oregonian Media Group
Oregon’s best kept secret in the winter is its southern coastline.

“People are surprised by how stunningly beautiful our beaches are,” says Katherine Hoppe, Tourism & Content Manager at the Mill Casino Hotel & RV Park in Coos Bay. “There are no hotels or restaurants on the beach, so you can have the majority of the beach to yourself.”

The Coos Bay/North Bend area, home to about 30,000 residents, is a big draw for visitors from around the U.S.

Storm-watching is at the top of the list of things to do for residents and visitors, especially during the winter. Hoppe notes that the position of the cliffs at Shore Acres State Park can turn a 20-foot swell into an epic 120-foot splash.

“When the storm is out to sea, it causes the huge swells,” Hoppe says. “You watch wave after wave come in, and it’s too mesmerizing to leave.”

And the weather doesn’t have to be bad on land. Just in case, Shore Acres State Park features a storm hut for when the rain comes too close to shore.

Cape Arago State Park, just a few miles from Shore Acres, is the site for another major draw to the southern coast: whale watching. Gray whales travel close to the shore as they migrate to Baja California, Mexico. The heaviest concentration of gray whales occurs at the end of December and March. Volunteers from the Whale Watching Spoken Here® program offer “assisted whale watching” during the week of Spring Break.

“If you’ve never gone whale-watching before, it’s good to have the volunteers help you spot them at first,” says Hoppe. “Then you can go out on your own.”

The Egyptian Theater is an ideal choice for historic cinema fans. Built in 1925, the theater is on the National Register of Historic Places.

Worried the winter weather could put a damper on your fun? You might be pleasantly surprised.

“We get great weather in the winter time. Our temperatures stay within the same 15 degree temperature range all year,” says Hoppe. “So if it’s raining a little bit … don’t worry, it’ll stop soon enough.”

The Mill Casino Hotel & RV Park has the largest hotel in the Coos Bay/North Bend area, and its suites feature panoramic views of the entire bay. The hotel also has an onsite gym, pool and outdoor hot tubs. If you’ve been waiting to take your RV to the coast, the Mill RV Park is situated on the waterfront. It has 102 level suites with full hook-ups and cable television. A free shuttle transports guests to The Mill Casino Hotel.

The Mill Casino Hotel & RV Park features several packages during the winter season. The Wine & Dine Package, for example, includes an overnight stay at the hotel or RV Park, $40 in dining credits at any of the hotel’s five dining venues and two bottles of Hinman Vineyard wines.

Not Run of the Mill

Mill Casino offers fantastic dining, accommodations and gaming

By Adam Sawyer

Two years ago, my girlfriend, Paula, and I pulled into the Mill Casino in Coos Bay, Oregon on a Tuesday afternoon. We were in the midst of a three-week whirlwind Oregon vacation. Alternating between campgrounds and the occasional stay at a roofed lodging facility, we were feeling a bit rundown, and most certainly dirty. The Mill Casino was one of the places we had targeted as a home that would no doubt provide a hot shower and anything else would be gravy.

Beautiful Bay Setting
The Mill Hotel and Casino is set right on the Coos Bay waterfront. Thanks to the fact that we were arriving on a weekday, the price was too good to pass up. I’ll be honest. I wasn’t expecting to sample their wares much beyond the bed and the shower. We hadn’t come to gamble, so I figured we would just take advantage of the chance to get clean, relax and walk along the water.

Checking in was easy and I was quite impressed with the look of the place. It’s classy without being overly opulent, with fitting tributes to the region’s First Nation heritage and culture woven throughout. The combination of modern design elements and fixtures with Native art, crafts and historical photos produced an elegantly cozy feeling.

Tower Balcony Suite

Comfortable and luxurious
When we opened the door to our room, our jaws dropped. Our room was gorgeous! The feeling from the lobby carried over into our private quarters, with the added benefit of an amazingly comfortable bed and a widescreen, high-definition television. Hot showers and a little relaxation were our first priority.

Once we were all shined up, it was time for dinner. While we had initially planned on checking out what the town of Coos Bay had to offer, Mill Casino had made such a good impression on us, between check-in and the walk to our room, we were curious about the dining options. So, we went to give the Plank House a look. Paula liked the menu and I needed little cajoling as I was starved.

Delicious on-site dining
It turned out to be a fantastic choice. I was delighted by the caliber of food offered by the Plank House, with locally sourced, seasonal offerings and classic Northwest-style cuisine. The Dungeness crab was perfectly prepared: fresh, slightly sweet, and lightly seasoned. Plank House took a legendary local ingredient and skillfully curated it to the plate.

Being full in addition to clean, we now had some pep in our steps and felt like checking out the casino floor. Paula had never played blackjack and the night was young.

An evening of blackjack
Being more familiar with gaming, I explained my code to Paula. We signed up for the excellent player rewards program, pulled out $40 specifically for gambling and set a time limit. Now I won’t tell you this is the way it’s necessarily going to go for you, but in an hour we doubled our money! Then, we left the gaming area and headed to Warehouse 101 for a nightcap. The onsite bar is the perfect place for dancing and drinks. I went to bed beaming.

RV Park

Perks we hadn’t considered
The next day we woke refreshed having enjoyed the soundest sleep of the trip and got a satisfying breakfast once more at the Plank House. Then we proceeded to do laundry. That’s right, laundry. We hadn’t even considered this before checking in, but one of the amenities offered by the Mill is a laundry center in the RV park. We were elated. When we left the Mill, not only would we be clean but our clothes would be, too. We never dreamed life could be so sweet.

Shortly thereafter, we extended the stay one more night. Thanks to the previous evening’s boon, we decided that our budget could handle another night. Plus we could spend some time checking out the town.

The next morning we packed up, checked out, and continued up the coast. All of our needs had been tended to, and even some that we didn’t know needed tending.

Worth a return trip
When we planned our trip, we chose the Mill because of location and cost. But the list of reasons why we keep coming back since our first visit has become rather extensive. When we arrived at the Mill the first time two years ago I was beat—emotionally and physically. The road is a wonderful place, but it was time for a little break. Now I know that every time I stay at the Mill I can count on a recharged battery, without fail. When you tally up great food, great service, gaming, amenities, location, price and the wonderful rooms, you get an experience greater than the sum of its parts. When Paula and I check out of the Mill, we both feel great, every time.

Take advantage of Mill Casino’s great package deals.

Spend an Evening with Mark Helfrich, Head Coach for the University of Oregon Ducks Football Team

Mark Helfrich

This winter, one of Coos Bay’s most distinguished natives is coming to The Mill Casino!

We are pleased to be the host site for the Coos Bay Schools Community Foundation Dinner, where guests will enjoy a chef prepared buffet dinner and an evening with Mark Helfrich, Head Coach for the University of Oregon Ducks Football Team and 92’ Marshfield High School Graduate.

Proceeds from the event benefit the Coos Bay Schools Community Foundation, a non-profit organization that promotes programs for the arts, academics, activities, and athletics to benefit the students of the Coos Bay School District.

Helfrich 2014 Spring Game Mark Helfrich has a special connection to our community. He grew up in Coos Bay, and became the quarterback at Marshfield High School before graduating in 1992. He turned down an opportunity to walk on at Oregon to attend Southern Oregon University, where he set school records as the starting quarterback from 1992-1995. During those years, Helfrich became an NAIA Scholar-Athlete (1993) and led the nation in total offense while earning NAIA honorable mention All-America accolades before he graduated with a bachelor’s degree in biology in 1996.

In January 2013, Mark Helfrich was named the head football coach at the University of Oregon, where he previously served as the offensive coordinator from 2009 to 2012. Born in Medford, Ore., Helfrich is the first native Oregonian to head the university’s football program in 71 years. In his first year as head coach, Helfrich led the Ducks to an impressive 11-2 season and a 30-7 Alamo Bowl triumph over Texas, surpassing Chip Kelly’s Oregon record for most wins by a rookie head coach. Proving that the first season was not a fluke, Coach Helfrich has led the Ducks this season to an outstanding 12-1 record in 2014, making them 1st in the North Division. The Ducks will be playing Florida State in the nationally televised Rose Bowl game on January 1, 2015.
