The goal of Elk Island ownership/management is to remove invasive plant species and ecologically restore native vegetation while allowing the public to enjoy both the land, air, water and wildlife. Below is a link to Oregon State University videos that describes the type of Environmental commitment that our management has to Elk Island and both South Umpqua River and Deer Creek.

Beautifully designed yurts and campsites and countless local amenities make the Elk Island Eco Resort and Campground of Roseburg one of Oregon's most desired travel destinations. Historic Elk Island was created 150 years ago when a great flood carved the west channel in 1861, to put Elk Islands age into perspective this was only two years after Oregon became a state and 2 years before President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation.
