Oregon to increase RV fees 25% for out-of-state campers

October 24, 2021

The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department (OPRD) is requesting public comment on three proposed amendments to the Oregon Administrative Rules that govern state parks, as directed by legislation passed during the 2021 session. One change prohibits individuals convicted of a bias crime on public property or state waterways from entering state park property for up to five years. The second change implements Senate Bill 794, which increases fees for RV campsites by 25% for out-of-state residents. The third amendment adds a requirement that members of the Outdoor Recreation Advisory Council be appointed by the Governor, as per House Bill 2171.
