Area Overview Map

Map showing the three units of the monument in the center, surrounded by nearby small towns. Cities such as Portland, Bend, and Ontario are near the edges of the map.
The three units of John Day Fossil Beds National Monument are located in north-central Oregon, approximately halfway between Portland, OR and Boise, ID. They can only be reached by car on secondary roads. Travel time between the units varies between one and two hours. Due to the distances between units, we do not generally recommend trying to visit all three in the same day.
