SALEM, Ore. -- Limited reservations for several Oregon state parks open Thursday.
Limited group camping and day-use area reservations will be available for stays starting May 1. Group size limits will be temporarily reduced to 25 visitors for each open area, which is compliant with state and federal health guidelines.
“Summer is quickly approaching and we want to give visitors plenty of time to plan their group events,” said Jason Resch, communications manager for the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department. “Although we can’t open all group areas in all parks and the lower group limits isn’t what we are used to, we ask for your patience as we move forward.”
Hiker and biker camping areas are also opening statewide, which are first-come, first-served.
Reservation availability will roll out between 6 a.m. and 9 a.m. on Thursday. To book a reservation and view the full list of parks and facilities opening up, visit the Oregon State Parks website.
