Orchard Park is a beautiful destination sitting on the bank of the South Fork Coquille River, two miles south of Powers. The river bends here, flowing through gravel beds and a cliff on the river's north bank. The water is deep at the base of the cliff making this place perfect for diving. A diving board and platform with stairs are placed next to the rocky monolith.

The current is slow within the bend and the water is warm at the peak of the summer season. The bank is pebbles, gravel, and some sand. Plentiful shallows make this place great for kids. In addition to swimming and diving, this spot is also great for kayaking, paddle boarding, and tubing. This is a day-use site only, no camping is allowed.

The parking area is located just off Power South Road. Park your car and find the trail on the right at the picnic pavilion. Hike to a stairway leading down to the monolith and diving platform or further to the gravel beach.

Picnic tables and a bench at the parking lot offer awesome river views from the highest point of the park.

Coquille River is a fantastic place for fishing all year round. The river is home to wild and hatchery steelhead, coho and chinook salmon, sea-run cutthroats trout, and bass. Always check the legality of fishing at a specific spot on the river!
