Lougee, can you remember which side of the highway it was on? There was an RV park just to the north, where the Worldmark is today. We used to stay there a lot, but I don't remember any teepee.

Chief Depoe died in 1997, but I think his son still makes appearances at the Salmon Bake.

Phirl, I figured you know the answer!

it was on the ocean side as you drove south on 101-

they had a big house with a lot of rooms that we used to rent with the family during the holidays

havent been there in years so i dont know anything about worldmark location-- i do remember that driving south there was a stark looking multi floored condo?? also on the right just before before we got to the place
