Oregon Hikes State Park Camping Fees for 2010

October 5, 2009 by   - () 2 Comments

Oregon’s State Parks and Recreation Commission adopted new fees at a special meeting Sept. 29. The day-use fees go from $3 to $5 per vehicle Jan. 1. Campsite rates will go up by $4 per night for recreation vehicles on May 1, 2010, and tent camping rates will go up $3 per night at the same time, according to the Sandy (Ore.) Post.

Costs to operate parks and day-use areas have increased during the past 13 years, with money from the state lottery helping to fill the budget gap. Today, fees account for a little bit more than half of the agency’s operating costs.

Oregon’s state parks attract 2.3 million campers and 42 million day visitors every year.
