State parks will discount RV campsites during the fall
Champoeg State Heritage Area and state parks across the state will see discounted RV campsite rates through the months of October and November, it was announced last week.
The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department (OPRD) will offer the discounted rates for electrical and full hook-up RV campsites when campers log onto www.oregonstateparks.reserveamerica.com and use the code "FallFun19." The discount is $7 off the nightly RV campsite rate, decreasing the rate from the $24 to $34 current level to $17 to $27.
"The fall is a great time to enjoy the changing season and there's nothing like a cozy campfire on a brisk fall morning," said Chris Havel, OPRD associate director. "We challenge Oregonians to discover their new favorite camping season."
The discount applies to online advanced reservations only, reservations must be made at least 24 hours in advance and is for RV campsites only.
Havel said the discount is intended as a pilot program to determine if a lower price will encourage campers to explore different parks during the so-called shoulder seasons – spring and fall – in Oregon.
