General Information

Wolf Creek Inn State Heritage Site
Copyright: - Oregon State Parks
Wolf Creek Inn State Heritage Site
Description - Imagine yourself as a traveler along a section of the Applegate Trail in the late 1800s. You have just arrived by stage coach at the Wolf Creek Inn. This is a long sought-after refuge from a not-so-comfortable portage over mountains and across valleys. After paying 75 cents for a room, bath and meals, you're ready to relax. You sit down to a good meal and some easy conversation with the innkeepers. Afterward, the men sidle off to the tap room for some quaffs of beer while the ladies adjourn to the parlor. The conversation drifts from tales of inspirational beauty to frightful experiences of the trail.

Attractions - The rooms are no longer 75 cents, but the refuge is still here preserved in its original state. Take a step back in time and visit. The inn is on the National Register of Historic Places. In front of the tavern you'll find interpretive panels depicting life on the Applegate Trail. The inn still provides lodging and meals to the weary traveler.

Vital stats: 8-room hotel with dining room. Restaurant hours are flexible, but usually serve lunch from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday, dinner 5-7 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday, and are closed Monday and Tuesday. The inn is open year-round.

Recreation - Wolf Creek Inn offers opportunities for overnight stays, viewing an historic site, and viewing historic displays.

Climate - Climate in this region varies with elevation and from east to west. The western portions of this region experience higher precipitation and more moderate temperatures year-round. The eastern end of this region is much more arid, with warmer summer temperatures and colder winter temperatures. The higher elevations receive abundant winter snowfall which stays on the ground until early summer in the high mountains.

Location - Wolf Creek Inn State Heritage Site is located in Southern Oregon, off I-5, 20 miles north of Grants Pass (Exit 76).
