ORPD land and management responsibilities include trailheads, like at Angels Rest; camping and day use activity areas at Dabney State Recreational Area, Rooster Rock and Ainsworth State Parks; natural resources and scenic landscape views on all its park lands including Vista House and Women’s Forum; and, in partnership with ODOT, the Historic Columbia River Highway State Trail.

The first set of public meetings is this August. Come learn more about your opportunity to contribute to the future of state parks in the region and share your experience and insights about your Columbia River Gorge Oregon State Parks experience.
