Wankers Corner is an unincorporated area centered at the intersection of Stafford Road and Borland Road in Clackamas County, Oregon, United States. Because this is not a recognized community, it has never had a post office, nor does it consistently appear on maps of Oregon (although the AAA map of Oregon shows it in an inset). The United States Geological Survey classifies Wankers Corner as a "locale":[1] "a place at which there is or was human activity".[2] It has frequently been noted on lists of unusual place names.[3]

The two buildings currently located at Wanker's Corner are the Wanker's Country Store and the Wanker’s Corner Saloon and Cafe. The area's name comes from the family who originally founded the store and settled the area in the 1800s.
