Cave Junction is a small town with two gas stations, two bars and soon to be two grocery stores. There are several restaurants in town, none are particularly good. There is a UPS in town, with computer hardware that is at least ten years old. The local veterinarian is not very competent. There is a decent library, Post office and the best D.M.V. on the planet. There is a large homeless population, a large drug addicted population. Law enforcement is less than satisfactory in all aspects. Roads are well maintained for the most part, and the trees are nice, when they are not on fire, this town is a hot mess!

I like that this is a small town. It's great that I know everybody here, so when a new face shows up, I can befriend them too! Cave Junction is a pretty small town, but it has a great community.
I have lived here my whole life and sadly I have watched my community take a turn for the worst. Over the past 10 years, the drug use has increased drastically and has affected the community members, the schools, and the local businesses. I am trying my hardest to get a proper education so I can come back and try to help the addictions that now run our town. Cave Junction was one of the most peaceful and loving towns in Oregon, with beautiful rivers and forests. Now the rivers are polluted with glass and diseases. The forests are full of homeless people and garbage. I wish my hometown could become the wonderful and amazing place it once was.
