Well we are currently hosting at Silver Falls and have had a almost a full month of snow!

Isn't there a plan in place to add a larger campground? Seems like I read something about it. Haven't been up there in a long time, need to get there again.


Several Oregon State parks inline for upgrades.

Thanks for that link GoDucks, the Silver Falls segment has a picture of a structure that came with a land acquirement, often referred to as the White House.
The dump station was very close to completion as we left, not bad considering the contractor lost about three week due to the snow.

They should've added another statistic. The two State parks that are almost impossible to get into. Harris Beach and Silver Falls. LOL

That has to be beautiful up there with the snow.
I guess hosting is one way to get a spot. LOL.


It was for the first two weeks or so, after that it was a bit of a pain. It is hard to get camping loops that are closed for winter, ready to open for spring, when covered with snow.

Yes, planing and work are under way. The new dump station is just about complete.’ Not sure when the construction will really get going on new campground.

I have enjoyed long term stays in the Oregon State Park system including 1 month at Champoeg SP south of Portland. Beautiful state and very friendly in 2010 to 2012 and again in 2018. Also generous discounts to out of state veterans. Almost moved there.
