Cave Junction Reviews

I have a lot of good memories there growing up in the country and tended not to see the bad so much .
We moved here 2 years ago, and could not be happier with our decision! The town of Cave Junction has a reputation for crime and drug use due to the part time police presence for the last several years. The sherrif just started full time, 24 hour patrols, so I expect this to improve in the near future. We live a few miles outside of town and have never had a single issue. Privacy, nice neighbors, beautiful pasture and forest, we have it all! 45 minutes to the redwoods in CA, just over an hour to Brookings, and a beautiful 35 minute drive to Grants Pass for jobs or major shopping. Most people are friendly and many volunteer for the community. We also have the Oregon Caves National Monument and the Chateau. I think town is charming and enjoy several of the restaurants. At it's heart, the Illinois valley is a small farming community. If you love the outdoors, don't mind driving to work, and prefer to live a little more spread out from other people, this is the place for you.
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 love living here just small quiet community with a lots of good Folk there is a clown hunting and fishing as well as Keen there are numerous hiking trails and wonderful wonderful Countryside that you can just fall in love with and like I said the fishing is both River fishing and Lake fishing so there's pretty much anything that you can do the hunting we have elk or bear and some of the smaller Wildlife that people like to eat
Small town feel with a big town attitude. I moved here 7 years ago and I am still treated like an outsider. If you not from here, people treat you like, your not worth the time of day. Nothing to do here for kids or teens. Nightlife for adults is very minimal. Only one grocery store here and a couple mom and pop stores. So, if your a shopper you will be looking to the Internet most of the time. The best thing about living here is the price of property and the property taxes are on the low side.
I have lived in this small town , my whole life. Its a town full of people who know everyone elses business... And pot farmers they are starting to take over out here . Since cave junction is becoming more know for its unique ganja and one of a kind buds things have started to change .
There is quite a bit of crime but locals look out for each other.
There are many unique stores in this area with good prices.
