Madras - Jefferson County
Chamber of Commerce


Surrounded by acres of fertile farmland, Culver is the gateway to the water sports paradise, Cove Palisades and Billy Chinook Reservoir. The small, but busy, downtown boasts several restaurants and retail outlets.

Culver has its own school district, with a thriving high school sports program. The town’s central location makes it an attractive hometown for commuters working in Central Oregon’s larger communities.

Culver is home to Earth2o, bottler of the naturally pure artesian water from nearby Opal Springs, Round Butte Seed Growers, an agriculture service company and Mid-Columbia Lumber, a producer of dimensional framing lumber that is shipped all over the country.
