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.

The Santiam State Forest largely remains closed due to damage from 2020 wildfires and windstorms, with the exception of Crooked Finger OHV Area. However, the ODF Recreation, Education, and Interpretation Program hopes to reopen many sites in 2022. Check back here periodically for updates on the status of recreation sites in the Santiam. Learn more about damage to the Santiam and ODF's vision for restoration.

On the Clatsop and Tillamook state forests, developed recreation sites (campgrounds, trails, and OHV facilities) are functioning normally and operating within established seasons. Most trails and designated dispersed camping areas remain open year-round, while developed campgrounds are generally open from mid-May through September. Please check in the table below for the most up-to-date statuses of recreation facilities.
