Seeking Solitude? Oregon’s 10 Least Visited Parks

There were around 50 million visits to Oregon’s state parks in 2017.

That’s a huge number and some of the parks feel more like small cities than a place to experience nature, according to the Statesman Journal.

On the flip side, Oregon’s least visited state parks are a different story. Located throughout the state, these little-known gems actually feature some spectacular scenery, in addition to the lack of crowds.

Here’s a list of Oregon’s 10 least-visited state parks.

Oregon’s least-visited state park is north of Klamath Falls at the headwaters of the Wood River.

The small campground and day-use area is a charmer, with good fishing that can be accessed from the park by canoe.

“This stream flows from the pine forest into open meadow land laced with picturesque quaking aspen surrounded by the southern Cascade Mountains,” says the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department description.
