Strawberry Mountain is the highest peak in the Strawberry Mountains of eastern Oregon in the United States. It is the 27th highest point in Oregon. It is within the Malheur National Forest and is the most prominent feature of the Strawberry Mountain Wilderness area.
The mountain, and nearby Strawberry Creek, were named by homesteader, Nathan Wills Fisk, "because there were wild strawberries in abundance there..." It was originally named "Strawberry Butte", but common usage changed it to Strawberry Mountain, which now appears on official maps.
