T

he Oregon Parks and Recreation Department is raising fees at state park camp sites. As of Nov. 1, the rates at campsites run by OPRD will go up $2 for some campsites—but not tent sites.

Full hookup sites at popular campgrounds will rise to $30 per night, with basic yurt prices going to $42. The increases were approved by the Oregon Legislature in the 2017-19 OPRD budget.

"We do not receive tax dollars for operation of our parks," said Lisa Sumption, director of OPRD. "Nearly all our funding comes from visitors, a portion of RV registration dollars, and the Oregon Lottery."
