Free camping & day-use parking June 1, 2013


2013-Oregon-State-Parks-Day

Saturday June 1 is our way of saying “thanks” to all our visitors! Camping is free for RV, tent and horse camp sites. Parking at day-use parking fee parks is also free.

Call Reservations Northwest (1-800-452-5687) before 5 p.m. May 30 to make your campsite reservations — the earlier, the better. Or, reserve online at www.oregonstateparks.org. It costs $8 to make a reservation, even for sites that are free for the night. Yurts, cabins, tepees and group areas are available at regular rates.

Visit the events calendar for a list of parks celebrating with special events, including new Let’s Go birding, disc golfing, hiking and paddling activities. State Parks Day also kicks off Oregon Outdoors Week (June 1-9), which links other statewide and national events promoting outdoor recreation:

    State Parks Day and Trails Day! Get out and explore your local parks! Or, if you’re close enough to Oregon come out and explore the amazing State Parks here!

    Good excuse to get outside. June 1st is also observed as National Trails Day. It’s the American Hiking Society’s signature trails awareness program. Free admission to all Washington parks, too. You won’t need your Washington State Parks Discovery Pass.
    A word of caution, just because it’s free doesn’t mean you’ll be able to find a camp site. If you try to reserve a spot this time of year, you’ll probably find things are booked solid. For example, Fort Stevens is very busy all the way through the end of September.
