Dole Rd. - Myrtle Creek exit on I-5. Cross the river and make the first left. Extremely sharp left turn, this turn is before SOCO on the left. If you pass Chevron to went to far. Follow this road "Dole Rd" 1.5 miles, take the dirt road that drops down toward the river.Cow Creek - In your address bar type in "maps.google." and after that, copy and paste this: com/maps?hl=en&ie=UTF8&ll=42.9
Generally speaking, in Oregon on public land you can prospect anywhere as long as it isn't claimed, or there isn't a restriction in the area you want to go. For example, Wilderness areas are closed to prospecting, and most Wild and Scenic rivers are very strict or don't allow prospecting at all. However, there is plenty of public access where anyone can go and prospect on public land.
If you live in Oregon I could point you in the right direction.
