Outdoor Recreation

This information can change, please double-check sources for information, and continue to monitor sources or back here for updates.

As of November 23rd, masks or facial coverings are no longer required for crowded outdoor locations where physical distancing is not possible. However, masks are still required in most indoor spaces. The full mandate can be found here.

Camping and State Parks:

Oregon State Parks have lifted many of the COVID-19 safety measures, but are still requiring masks, regardless of vaccination status, at certain crowded areas, such as at viewpoints and trail heads. Please note that not all group sites are open or operating at full capacity yet.  Closed buildings and rental services will be slowly reopening as staffing allows.

Visit the Oregon Parks and Recreation website  for more details.

Fish and Wildlife:

Hunting and Fishing seasons remain open, but there are some restrictions and closures within Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW). Hatcheries and wildlife areas are now open, but places where people congregate at facilities or indoor facilities may be closed. Similarly, hunting, fishing, and wildlife viewing and associated parks, forests, and campgrounds are reopening but many public buildings remain closed.
