Oregon State Parks Permits on Sale

Published 12/07/2010

(Salem, Oregon) - Oregon State Parks are on sale – just in time for the holidays.

Well, the day-use parking permits are, that is. The permits, good for 12 months, are now $25 instead of $30, good at 26 of Oregon’s most popular state parks.

The sale runs until December 31.

The annual Oregon Parks and Recreation Department (OPRD) holiday discount item may be a bigger bargain than ever before.

"The permit is now transferable," said OPRD Recreation Programs Manager Richard Walkoski. "Before this year, you had to buy a second permit to park another vehicle in a fee area."

With their transferable benefits, Walkoski said the 12-month day-use permit and a 24-month version that has a permanent $50 bargain price have increased in value as gifts. "They are gifts that can just keep giving throughout the year," he said. "And, they can save recipients both time and money."

Visitors who do not have long-term passes must buy $5 daily permits. "That means taking time to buy a permit from a vending machine or stopping at a fee booth," said Walkoski.

The 12- and 24-month OPRD permits can be purchased by calling the Oregon State Parks Information Center, 1-800-551-6949. Callers can use debit or credit cards that have VISA or MasterCard logos.

Walk-in customers can buy the permits at major OPRD offices, some state park friends' group stores and selected local businesses throughout the state. A list of vendors is posted at www.oregonstateparks.org/dayuse_permit_vendors.php.

These are good at state parks around the Oregon coast, central Oregon, southern Oregon and eastern Oregon.
