Diehard campers don’t need much of an excuse to go camping, but as of Oct. 1, the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department offers up one more reason: Discovery Season.
From Oct. 1 to April 30, rates for RV and tent campsites at Oregon state parks drop by $4 per night. Depending on the location, tent sites go as low as $13 per night, and full hookup sites as low as $16 per night.
Fall and winter discounts, which continue through April 30, apply to all sites, except standard yurts and cabins. Details on Discovery Season rates can be found at http://www.oregonstateparks.org/rates.php.
“The weather has been spectacular all across the state lately,” said Richard Walkoski, an operations analyst with OPRD. “And now, anyone who wants to seize that last bit of summer can do it for a few bucks less per night.”
