Friends of
Hinsdale Garden

Some two hundred miles south of the mouth of the Columbia River is the estuary of the Umpqua with its delta blocked by sandbars and dunes, and whose north and south forks provide a key watershed for the western slopes of the Cascades in Southern Oregon. Lying near the mouth of the Umpqua River is the sleepy town of Reedsport, named in honor of Arthur WI. Reed, a pioneer resident of western Douglas County.

Public Access
According to the BLM, the garden is always open to the public. That said, there is a gate that remains locked and they do NOT want people parking in front of the gate. You can park across the street from it and walk into the garden.
