McKinley is an unincorporated community in Coos County, Oregon, United States.[1] McKinley lies along Middle Creek, a tributary of the North Fork Coquille River, northeast of Myrtle Point in the Southern Oregon Coast Range.[2]

Homer Shepherd suggested the name in honor of President William McKinley. Shepherd helped establish the McKinley post office in June 1897 and served as its first postmaster.[3]
