Oregon State Parks are going to add a "Virus Surcharge" to out of state folks.

Oregon State Parks have been difficult to reserve for yrs and nearby States like Washington have been charging extra to out of State campers for a long time. As an Oregonian I have no problem with this surcharge so long as it's dedicated to maintaining/improving State Parks.

I am of the belief that the surcharge is to reduce the number of out of state campers coming into Oregon, as part of Covid 19 prevention.

ksg5000, WA parks DO NOT (at this time!!) charge "extra" to non-residents!! They have various levels according to services and seasons. There is a charge for the "Discover Pass" to access day use areas and some other parks, but it is not charged for or required when paying for a campsite. If you are an oldie, you probably remember the fee wars of the '70s and early '80s when a whole bunch of states charged extra for non-residents. It was Oregon that started the war!!!

Actually up until about 8 to10 years ago Oregon offered a Discovery Season rate during the winter to encourage off season camping.

I think the term for that is the "Ben Dover" non-resident charge.

Just another reason (among many) to add to the list titled... Why I don't visit west coast states.

It will help with the shortfall of revenue from the shutdown. Or St parks have been doing quite well until the shutdown and reopening. It's time for those out of state that take in staters spots to anty up.
