About Grant County

The Dream

Grant County Oregon has been treasured in the heart of pioneers for over 150 years and it continues to be for those who still dare to dream. It defines adventure.

That’s why we designed GCOregonLive to be the most complete, comprehensive online resource ever published for Grant County: To meet the needs of modern adventurers.

Today, with features like updated local weather, interactive mapping, driving directions, GPS coordinates, photo galleries and more, we can give both visitors and residents the very best, most current information available.

The Scope

The State of Oregon is nearly as large as the entire country of France and embraces more land than England, Ireland and Scotland combined. Grant County itself is nearly the size of Connecticut. It’s boundaries contain all the headwaters for the four forks of the John Day River.

With such a vast abundance and diversity of natural resources — from the green rolling hills of the John Day River valleys to the timbered slopes of high alpine lakes and mountains — Grant County is a challenge to portray fairly and accurately in any single publication. That is why we have chosen to publish a series of maps and photo galleries for you to browse and enjoy.

We’ve also made Grant County businesses and services easy to find with our Business Guide, and the restaurant or lodging locators. We’ll be adding other special-interest locators designed for sportsmen, cyclists, hikers, and recreationalists of all types in the future.
