Veterans with Disabilities & Active Duty on Leave

Eligibility:

 We offer free camping to these groups:

  •   U.S. veterans with the Oregon State Parks Special Access Pass.
  •    Active duty U.S. military on official leave

    These benefits are handled in slightly different ways. Read on! 

The Special Access Pass is for veterans with a service-connected disability, or eligible U.S. military members on leave.  This benefit is subject to some restrictions. Disabled Vets will need to apply through the Oregon State Parks program to be eligible.

 What it Covers

If you are eligible, this benefit gives you free camping in standard RV sites, tent campsites & horse camp sites. You may camp for free in a tent, RV or standard horse camp site for up to 5 nights at a time at a single state park, for a total of 10 nights in a calendar year, regardless of the location. If you stay longer than 5 nights at a park,  you will pay the standard rate for the extra days. 

If you are a Special Access Pass holder, please call 541-957-7001 to book today.

What it Doesn’t Cover

     This benefit does not cover:

  • Yurts, cabins, group sites or other special park facilities
  • The $20 fee to make reservations or the $6 per night charge for a 2nd driven vehicle / extra trailers.
  • Holidays, events, or deluxe sites

Other Things To Know

  •  If you have a pass, carry it with you, along with photo I.D.
  • The person eligible for the discount must occupy the campsite. Otherwise, the discount is invalid. Your Special Access card or leave papers are not transferable to anyone else, even other veterans.
  • When you arrive at a park, you will be asked for photo ID to confirm that you are the Special Access Pass holder.
