We studied the idea of a jet boat concession to pick up and drop off customers at the park, and have shelved the idea in February 2023 to focus on other park improvements. Visitors will still see jet boats operating in and around the park, since we don’t manage rules for the river where jet boats are allowed. Businesses can’t conduct transactions in the park, but are allowed to use it just like any other member of the public. Because the river and bank up to the high water line is outside the park, a local jet boat operator could use a temporary metal ramp on the riverbank to load and unload passengers. Use of a temporary ramp outside the park boundary is not under our control. Read the announcement from February.
This beautiful day-use park is located on the banks of the Rogue River and at the foot of geologically prominent Table Rock. You can picnic, fish, launch your boat, swim and hike on a 2-mile trail. Denman Wildlife Refuge, next to the park, teems with local and migratory birds. Salmon and steelhead pass through seasonally on treks to and from the ocean.
Plan your next group event in one of our six picnic areas. Area A has a large picnic shelter with four horse shoe pits. Area C has a smaller shelter. Areas D and E are open areas with electricity, water and plenty of picnic tables. Areas B and F are open areas without access to electricity. All sites can be reserved up to six months in advance online at oregonstateparks.reserveamerica.com. Horseshoe pits and volleyball courts are located throughout the park, and a restroom with flush toilets was recently remodeled.

The park was obtained in two phases. In 1946, Frank L. Tou Velle gave the state of Oregon 35.29 acres for park purposes, and, in 1964, an additional acreage was purchased from the Tou Velle estate. The park is a relatively flat tract of land on both sides of the Rogue River at Bybee Bridge. It is partly tree-covered in oak and poplar and is developed for day use.
