Remote is an unincorporated community in Coos County in the U.S. state of Oregon. It lies near the confluence of Sandy Creek with the Middle Fork Coquille River.
Remote was named by local pioneers for its distance from other settlements. Its post office was established in 1887. Oregon Route 42 used to run through the center of the community, but realignment of the highway has left Remote several hundred yards away.
Like Oregon communities Nimrod and Boring, Remote is often cited on lists of odd place names. William Least Heat-Moon mentions the community in Blue Highways: A Journey Into America.
