All visitors can enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner at the Wolf Creek Tavern.
Imagine yourself as a traveler along a section of the Applegate Trail in the late 1800s. You have just arrived by stagecoach to the Wolf Creek Inn, a welcome refuge from the perilous journey 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 hot meal and some easy conversation with the innkeepers or other guests. Afterwards, 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.
The rooms are no longer 75 cents, but the refuge is still here, its historic charm carefully preserved. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Inn retains its classical revival architecture and early 20th century decor. It is situated on three picturesque acres that are managed by Oregon State Parks as a State Heritage Site. Just minutes from I-5, the setting will transport you to an earlier, quieter time.
Overnight guests can choose from nine beautifully appointed rooms, each with private bath. Lodging includes free Wi-Fi.
Our beautiful grounds are open to the public dawn to dusk, seven days a week, free of charge. In front of the tavern, you'll find interpretive panels depicting life on the Applegate Trail. Join us for a ranger-led tour daily at 11:30 am to learn more about the history and view a building that has served guests since 1883.
