Welcome To Douglas County
Roseburg is the heart of the scenic and recreational paradise known as the Land of Umpqua. This land of authentic outdoor adventures and experiences is bordered by picturesque rivers and lush valleys. The Roseburg area is known for its 359 miles of streams along the north and south forks of the Umpqua River. The year round natural beauty of the Land of Umpqua contributes to a quality lifestyle enjoyed by residents and appreciated by guests to our area.
The Roseburg area reflects small-town values, has dedicated business leaders and a strong education system from K-12 to our local community college. Our community possesses a hardworking, well-trained workforce. These characteristics have proved instrumental in drawing new residents and companies to the region, while keeping families here for generations.
Stroll through our historic downtown with unique shops and galleries and outstanding restaurants and brewpubs, or venture out into the surrounding wine country. Our more than two dozen boutique wineries are receiving international acclaim for a diverse array of wines including Tempranillo, Pinot Gris, Baco Noir, Pinot Noir, Riesling and exotic blends to name a few.
At Wildlife Safari you can get up close and personal with wild animals roaming free. If you’d rather wrestle a steelhead than a bear (and who says you can’t do both?), tackle the famous North Umpqua River. It holds steelhead, trout, salmon, bass and as much adventure as you could hope for in one river. And, let’s not forget the opportunity for world-class gaming at Seven Feathers Casino Resort & Spa.
Roseburg is only a little more than an hour from where the Pacific Ocean rushes to the beaches of the beautiful Oregon Coast. Or travel the scenic North Umpqua Highway to Crater Lake National Park, one of the most breathtaking sights in America. You can stop at dozens of waterfalls along the way.
If you’re a hiker or mountain biker, travel the same route and test the North Umpqua Trail system, one of the top 30 rides in the world. Our outdoor opportunities—from fishing, rafting, hiking, biking to cycling—when combined with our unique visitor attractions, wineries and breweries, make the Land of Umpqua a perfect destination for visitors.
As this region’s leading advocate for business, the Roseburg Area Chamber of Commerce works with our business and community partners to create a strong local economy, promote our local businesses, promote the Land of Umpqua as a premier visitor destination and represent business interests through political activity.
The chamber’s political advocacy is founded in making certain our community maintains the most business-friendly environment possible for private-sector growth and job creation. Work is always ongoing to provide shovel-ready sites for business development—manufacturing, industrial and commercial—ensuring infrastructure is in place for future growth. The chamber plays an important role in attracting new business and expanding existing business in the Land of Umpqua for family wage job creation. The chamber continues to advocate for investment in waterfront enhancement, revitalization of historic downtown Roseburg and transportation infrastructure. Much is progressing in these areas today.
All this, and more, is happening in Roseburg. It’s all here for you in the Land of Umpqua. Whether you are visiting us for the first time or hundredth, recently relocated or considering Roseburg as the perfect location for your business or retirement, or are a sixth generation resident like me, the Land of Umpqua is truly the best place to live, work and play.
All are welcome here!
