Governor Brown announces limited opening of state recreational areas

More tourists likely to visit tri-county area as weather improves

Governor Kate Brown announced the limited opening of some state parks, outdoor recreation facilities, and areas across Oregon for day use, effective today. Camping opportunities will become available as federal, state, local, and private providers are able to prepare their facilities for visitors. Ski resorts also will be able to resume activities under a new executive order that will be released soon. As this limited reopening occurs, it is essential that Oregonians recreate responsibly to protect the health, wellness, and safety of themselves and others in local communities.

Reopening outdoor recreation areas will be a phased approach as it becomes safe. Columbia River Gorge parks and recreation areas, as well as coastal areas that are not yet ready to welcome visitors back, will remain closed for now, while the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department coordinates with local jurisdictions and partners in Washington to determine the appropriate timing for reopening.

More information and tips on how to stay safe while recreating can be found in the Governor’s press release.
