Through the center of the property, from north to south, runs the middle fork of the north fork of the Coquille River. There is an 8′ deep swimming hole among the trees of this old established riparian creek. Trout, and crayfish abound, as well as many waterfowl, Kingfishers, and occasional Bald Eagle. Frogs, turtles, newts, and even the Pacific Lamprey eel make this creek their home, and the Chinook Salmon, Coho Salmon, and Steelhead come back each year to spawn in the choice gravels of this protected habitat.

With its many pools and shade, Middle Creek provides the necessary cool reprieve from the hot summer sun.
