Oregon Department of Forestry (ODF) camping information

ODF offers three types of camping opportunities: developed campgrounds, designated dispersed sites, and dispersed camping. All available campground sites have been booked
Dispersed camping
Dispersed camping is allowed in Oregon State Forests with no fee or permit requirements. Campers are required to adhere to ODF regulations regarding placement of campsites, campfires, sanitation, and stay limits. Campfires are not permitted during the regulated use portion of fire season. There is no map of dispersed camp spots.
