Oregon State Parks offers more than 50 campgrounds across the state. While the majority of campgrounds accept reservations for campsites, some campgrounds are first-come, first-served seasonally or year-round.
At campgrounds that accept reservations, any available sites can be booked the same day through an online reservation, which can be made from home or at the park via a digital device or a park ranger if space is available.
Note: Reservations are accepted for all cabins, yurts, tepees, some group facilities and many parks depending on the season. Check information on this page and individual parks pages for more details.
Campgrounds that do not accept campsite reservations have a self-registration process. Campers register for their site at the campground booth or by providing payment in a self-registration envelope at a kiosk. You will be asked to provide license plate and zip code on the envelope, and pay the designated rate based on the posted rate sign. For general rates, see our rates page.
