EUGENE, Ore. — People taking their RVs out to camp in Oregon might have to spend a little more money next summer. Oregon Parks and Recreation Department is proposing to raise rates at the most popular State Park campgrounds.
If the proposal is approved by the Oregon State Parks and Recreation Commission, the rate for a full-hookup RV site would be $4 higher than the current price, bringing the total to $28 per night in the summer. Prices for tent camping spaces would not change.
OPRD officials say the department needs more funding to cover climbing park operating costs. Four public hearings will be held regarding the proposal. New prices would be effective in May of 2014.
