The average cost for a tent site at an Oregon State Park is currently $19 per night, and will go up to $23 per night for non- Oregon residents. The Oregon State Park system hopes to raise around $500,000 through the end of the year to help hire staff and pay for cleaning supplies and other state park operations.
The good news: There are plenty of Oregon State Parks campgrounds that don’t require reservations. That means if you’re flexible enough to get out the door early, or camp on a non-weekend, you have an excellent shot of snatching up those gorgeous first-come, first-served sites.
