Drone Map Classification Criteria Feedback

November 9, 2023 Update:

Can you help Oregon Parks and Recreation Department develop clear guidelines for where people can fly their recreational drones safely? We are looking to get your thoughts, feedback, and ideas from Oct. 23 through Dec. 29, 2023. Send us your feedback by completing and sending this form!

A workgroup of conservation groups, drone users, state, and federal natural resource agencies, and OPRD staff worked to create criteria where each state park area will create color coded maps to easily identify where drones are allowed take-off and land (the table to the right will open as a pdf by clicking on it). The maps will also show areas where drones cannot take-off and land.

We are in the idea gathering phase, so we are sharing three sample areas with maps developed following the classification criteria developed by the workgroup and staff.

We need you to tell us your thoughts and feedback about the classification criteria!

Submit your feedback by completing and sending this form or emailing us at Please submit organization form or group letters through the form rather than the email, it helps us make sure we don’t miss any!
