Celebrate state parks

In celebration of State Parks Day, state parks throughout Oregon will offer a free night of camping June 2 at all traditional, electrical and tent sites. Parking at the 26 day-use fee parks will also be free during the day.

"Free camping and parking is our chance to say 'Thank you' to our visitors," Oregon Parks and Recreation Department Director Tim Wood said in a prepared statement. "Oregon has hundreds of miles of trails for all levels of ability, and it doesn't matter if you are in a state park or on a backwoods goat path — get outside and enjoy your trails."

Campsite reservations can be made by calling 1-800-452-5687 before 5 p.m. May 31. Reservations can also be made online at www.oregonstateparks.org, where a complete list of state park day events can also be found.
