Quartzville Creek

Wild & Scenic River - Oregon

Quartzville Creek begins in the Cascade Mountain Range of Oregon. The 12-mile (19.3 km) section that was designated in 1988 flows into Green Peter Reservoir near the town of Sweethome. Classified as a recreational section of river, Quartzville Creek is named for the gemstone that has been mined in the area and a ghost town that was once the center of two brief gold mining efforts (1863-1892). The Quartzville Back Country Byway parallels the winding river, offering views of old-growth forests and wildlife, and provides easy access to developed and undeveloped picnic and camping sites.
