Nov. 1, 2017 thru April 2018:  Crissey Field Welcome Center is open Fri.-Mon. 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.  Closed on Thanksgiving.

Perched between the California border and the Winchuck River, this 40-acre park features a sandy beach, wetlands, and a small stand of mature trees.  It's also home to a new 4,500 sq. ft. Welcome Center that displays Oregon's finest virtues:  effective green technology, a warm welcome for traveler's, plus service and beach access to thousands of area residents from Gold Beach, OR  to Crescent City, CA.   Solar panels send power - as much as 20,000 kilowatt hours per year - back to Coos-Curry Electric Co-op as well as heating the water.  The Earth itself warms the building in the winter and cools it in the summer.  Water and lights are precisely timed to provide for needed services with minimal waste.
