Recreation

Explore Oregon's state forests

From trails and campgrounds, to day-use areas, wildlife viewing, hunting and fishing, state forestlands provide a unique connection to the land. Whether you set out on a trail on horseback, wheels, or your own two feet, state forests offer one-of-a-kind recreation opportunities for all ages and abilities.

Remember these are your forests, enjoy and help keep them clean. Leave No Trace and Treadlightly.org offers tips on minimizing your impact while recreating.
