A special pilot program that will offer camping discounts for electrical and full-hookup RV campsites is now available at selected Oregon state parks during September and October.
Campers can apply a special online code to receive a $7 discount off the nightly RV campsite rate, bringing the current rate from $24-33 down to $17-26.
From Sept. 4-30, the discount can apply to reservations made for Sunday through and including Thursday nights. From Oct. 1–31, the discount is valid all days of the week.
Only reservations made online on or after Aug. 22 are eligible for the discounted rate. Campers must use a special code at checkout — FallFun7 — to receive the discount.
For more information and to start the reservation process, campers can go online to Oregon State Parks Website
