Memorial Day Weekend – Labor Day Weekend 2019

J.R. Beaver, Oregon State Park’s mascot, needs your help protecting our plants, animals and the earth’s resources.  The Junior Ranger Program gives kids a chance to explore their State Parks.  By becoming a Junior Ranger, 6 – 12 year old visitors, will become important park stewards.  They will learn all about the park; while having fun, meeting other Junior Rangers and earning rewards.  

Children are welcome regardless if they are camping or just here for day-use.  Parents are encouraged to stay, learn and play with their kids.  Special accommodations will be made for children with disabilities wherever possible.

For more information call  541-546-3412
