Madras welcomes you to the heart of Jefferson County, where U.S. Highways 26 and 97 meet. Scenic vistas, fresh air and friendly faces make this place one of Oregon's best kept secrets. The fabric of life in Madras is as varied as the colors of a bolt of Madras cloth from which the town got its name. Whether it be rockhounding, fishing, pleasure boating, rafting, water-skiing, golfing, hiking, culture sampling or just getting away from it all, there's something for everyone. We are proud of the harmony and diversity of our community and the warmth and friendliness of our residents.
