Island City

Canyon City is the county seat of Grant County, and two miles south of John day. It is located along U.S. Route 395 and a mere 150 miles from Bend and 266 miles from Portland. Gold rush fever hit Oregon in the 1860s, and Canyon City, just south of John Day, felt the heat with around $3 to $5 million in gold extracted in the first three years of the gold rush. The remaining riches of the Strawberry Mountain Wilderness, the Malheur National Forest and the John Day River lure campers, hikers, fishermen and outdoor enthusiasts to the city.
