In compliance with Governor Kate Brown’s executive orders
and in an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19, we have temporarily shut
down all Oregon State Parks and related services until May 8th.
Please see the list below for current status of our
Contractors, partners, volunteers, and permittees will
regain access to our parks and resume permit projects when our parks re-open.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. We look forward to
collaborating with you all very soon.
State park master plans are written for new and existing parks and present a balance of recreation opportunities with resource protection. Once adopted by the Oregon Parks and Recreation Commission and approved by the local land use authority (usually a city or county), a park master plan guides future park development. We encourage and actively engage park stakeholders and the community during the master planning process. Community members and others interested in park development are invited to comment at each stage of the process.
OPRD issues a variety of permits for activities within parks (e.g., scientific research permits) and areas under the agency's jurisdiction, including the Ocean Shore State Recreation Area and State Scenic Waterways.
