Oregon State Parks day-use parking permit vendors

Go camping

If you´re camping at a state park, you don´t need a day-use parking permit. Just display your current state park camping receipt on your dashboard.

Buy a one-day parking permit

If you´re not camping and don´t have an annual permit, you need to buy a daily parking permit. Daily parking permits are $5 per day, per vehicle. You can purchase them only at a park that charges a day-use parking fee. Most are dispensed from small yellow machines near the park entrance or parking area, but some are sold from the park booth or office.

The daily permit is good for parking the entire day at any state park that charges a day-use parking fee. You can leave one day-use fee park and travel to another. The fee is a parking fee and not a charge for recreational purposes under ORS 105.672 to ORS 105.696. The immunities provided under ORS 105.682 apply to use of state park land for recreational purpose.
