West Coast Game Park Safari...................

Can anyone tell us how far this is from Damascus, Portland.

Is it worth seeing if time allows?

Not sure what the reference to Damascus is....the game park you mention is in south Bandon, about 5 hours drive from Portland, depending on your route, sightseeing, rest stops, meals, etc.

This game park is in Winston, near Roseburg, only about 3 hours south of Portland along I-5. I'm not sure which is better or most fits your interests.

Not sure either is worth making it a destination...a lot depends on where you'll be on the rest of your journey. Proximity might make the choice for you.

Thank you. Damascus is where we are staying.

As you say, not sure they would be worth using so much time travelling when there are so many other beautiful things to see.

A long way - as oregonpoppa says, about 5 hours.

>>Is it worth seeing if time allows?<<

Only if you are going to be near to it for a planned stopover. In my experience.

You would be better off going to the ORegon zoo if you are staying in Damascus.

Now if you were travelling on the southern coast I would advice differently.

I've been to the West Coast Game Park on the coast. It is a long drive, is it worth it? Meh, You will be spending about 3x the driving time than you would at the park. It's rather small and other than getting to pet a tiger cub it wasn't worth it in my opinion. Go to the Oregon Zoo, bigger bang for your buck.
