Here are some excellent maps of the State of Oregon: Map of Oregon counties with county seats from Geology.com Map of Oregon counties without county seats but with "clickable" county details from Oregon Blue Book Oregon Official State Highway Map (front) from the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) Oregon Official State Highway Map (back) from the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) For several more Oregon maps, visit the Trans Dev / Transportation Data page of the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT), or for detailed driving directions or "Street Views," visit Google Maps.
