It’s a great town. Almost everyone knows everyone. Everyone is friendly. Although there is a great variety of churches, religion does not overpower the community. Our town mayor is very involved in our community and there is a variety of town activities. For example, in September there is a county fair for four days in Orofino.

Cute, small town. I haven't been here for long but it's left a good impression on me so far. It has everything you need.
Orofino is a small town tucked away by the Clearwater national forest and on the edge of the Clearwater river. If you love out doors you will love Orofino. From hiking to hunting, fishing, camping and a small town feel you will be glad you came.
