Dayville

Dayville is located at the confluence of the John Day River and the South Fork John Day River along U.S. Route 26, 125 miles from Bend and 233 miles from Portland. Named for the vibrant John Day River flowing past its doorstep, this sleepy burg in Eastern Oregon is a heartland of natural beauty. Hop on the Journey Through Time Scenic Byway or, for a two-wheeled exploration, the Old West Scenic Bikeway to truly appreciate how spectacular the local landscape is.  Picture Gorge, named for Native American pictographs painted on the canyon walls, is 6 miles northwest of Dayville at the intersection of Route 26 and Oregon Route 19. The Sheep Rock Unit of the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument, including the Thomas Condon Paleontology Center and the James Cant Ranch Historic District and museum, are 2 miles north of Picture Gorge along Route 19.
