The devastating wildfires that continue to level the Oregon landscape have so far burned about 900 acres of state park land, most of it undeveloped forest. Some parks remain closed due to windstorm damage or their proximity to active fires. Check our Park Status Map for a list of open and closed parks. See our Sep. 19 news release for more information on storm and fire damage in state parks.

Campfire Restrictions

A statewide campfire ban remains in place at campgrounds, day-use areas and beaches south of Pacific City. The ban includes wood, charcoal briquettes, candles, tiki torches and other devices that emit flames or embers. Propane stoves and other cooking devices that have a shutoff valve are allowed for cooking only.

Sept. 21 Note: Some parks are allowing campfires in designated fire rings when conditions and local fire agencies allow. Check the park's webpage for current campfire restrictions. Beach fires are allowed north of Pacific City. Conditions can change quickly so please check with park staff on site.  

Cancellations & Refunds

For all parks closed due to storm damage and/or proximity to active wildfires, we will cancel reservations and issue refunds issued where applicable. For campers cancelling because of smoke/fire, we are temporarily waiving the first night penalty and refunding all but the $8 reservation fee.  For closed parks we are refunding all including the $8.
