This little town is a gem waiting to be discovered with its beautiful historic homes, year round fishing, and summer fun with the Gay 90s and performances of fine old melodrama at the Sawdust Theater on the corner of First & Adams.
Incorporated in 1885, Coquille (Kó-kél') has remained the county seat since 1896. The town boasts a moderate climate, easy accessibility to the Coast (half an hour away), abundant fishing in the Coquille River, and an excellent hospital and emergency care facility. Quality education with an eye to the future is offered in our schools. The Coquille Valley Art Association offers exhibits and classes for the varied artists in our midst. We have an excellent Community Center with a pool that is open for swimming during the summer. A wide variety of properties can be found at affordable prices. The Rivers Edge RV Park has 54 spaces overlooking the Coquille River. Spectacular scenery marks the drive to many parks throughout the county with day and overnight camping available. Hunting, fishing, hiking, biking -- we have it all, plus an active Senior Center for older citizens.
Sturdivant Park is located on the banks of the South Fork of the Coguille River, offering playgrounds, a boat ramp, camping, a veterans' memorial, and Oregon historical marker. It is a frequent gathering place for community activities.
