General Information

Description - Located eight miles north of Florence, Darlingtonia is an educational experience. Stop and view the carnivorous plants from the boardwalk trail. It's the only place in the state that has been set aside for the plants. Insects are lured into the plant and then digested. Flush toilets, picnic tables and plenty of parking makes this a great place to stop and stretch.

Vital stats: There is no fee to use this park. For information, call 1-800-551-6949.

Recreation - Darlingtonia offers opportunities for viewing native plants, viewing wildlife, viewing interpretive sites, walking and picnicking.

Climate - The Oregon coast receives abundant rainfall, mostly between October and April. July and August bring the best chance for clear days. Summer temperatures are normally moderate and almost never hot. Winter temperatures are normally cool at the lower elevations and cold at the higher elevations. Although snow is possible in the lowest elevations, it is infrequent and does not stay on the ground for long.

Location - Darlingtonia is located on Oregon's Central Coast, eight miles north of Florence.
