Lane County Apartments for Rent(hide county information)
From the majestic peaks of the Cascade Mountains to the wild and raging Pacific Ocean, Lane County stretches from one end to the other. Lush, green forests and cascading waterfalls make up the glorious eastern region, while the rocky coastline defines the west. This is the home of vast national forests – 90 percent of the county consists of forestland. It may feel like the wild frontier, but Lane County is also home to the second largest city in Oregon.
Eugene is a densely-populated urban hub. It is the seat of Lane County and the home of the University of Oregon. It is an artistic, young, and chic city with plenty for its residents to do in their spare time. From outdoor activities such as whitewater rafting, mountain climbing, hiking, horseback riding, camping, jogging, fishing, and kayaking to art galleries, wineries, festivals, historic sites, and lighthouses, Eugene is a richly vibrant and diverse community.
Lane County’s national protected areas include parts of the Oregon Islands National Wildlife Refuge, Willamette National Forest, Siuslaw National Forest, and Umpqua National Forest. The parks provide opportunities for hiking, camping, fishing, rock climbing, boating, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, and downhill skiing.
