SALEM, Ore. — After announcing last week that state campgrounds would begin opening on June 9, the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department provided a more detailed timeline for camping around the state on Friday.

A few campgrounds open immediately, but the vast majority will open up on June 9.

“I am cautiously delighted. We are working hard to welcome campers wherever we can safely do so, as soon as we can,” said OPRD director Lisa Sumption.

Campgrounds are only allowed to open if they meet the state public health guidelines, receive approval from the local community, and if the park has enough staffing, supplies, and equipment to open safely and "operate at a basic level."

Due to lost revenue over the preceding months of closures, Parks officials said that services at most campgrounds will be curtailed. Cabin and yurt camping won't be available "except in rare cases." Group camping remains closed across the state, due to distancing concerns.

RV and tent campers with existing reservations for a campground that opens will be honored beginning June 9. Not all sites or loops may be available at open campgrounds. For parks in the coastal region, there will be no walk-in or first come, first-served camping until further notice.

Also, the state's online reservation system has been shut down since April 28. It will reopen for new reservations sometime next week with a reduced window — between one day and two weeks in advance.

The following campgrounds open Friday, May 29. Others may be added to this list without a formal announcement:
