Alerts and Important Information
If you reserve a cabin, please look for your access combination in the Security Alerts section of your confirmation letter.

Remember only one vehicle stay is included with standard camp fees. Any time a second vehicle is kept at a campsite (or alternate parking area) you are subject to an extra vehicle charge of $5 per vehicle, per night (changing to $7.00 per night May 1, 2014).

During most of Discovery Season Oct 1 through mid-May Fort Stevens removes campsites from the reservation system. Reservation Services may not have campsites available for reservations but Fort Stevens may have campsites available on a first come or drop in basis. If available, additional loops will be opened as necessary to accommodate arriving campers.

Please check in at the Ranger Station for instructions.

*Reservations for more than five nights/days that are later changed to fewer nights/days will be charged a fee equal to the nightly/daily site fee for each night/day canceled as well as the $8 transaction fee.

Please be aware that only the person whose name is on the reservation may access, change or cancel the reservation.

You can stay 14 consecutive nights in a single campground, and may return after spending at least three nights out of the park (it can be another state park campground; in fact, we recommend you DO select another state park campground). The maximum time allowed within any Oregon State Park is 14 nights within any 17 night period.

Customers who wish to secure more than one site within a park for a continuous date period in order to accommodate their reservation request (i.e. split reservation), should be aware that the $8.00 reservation fee would apply to each site reserved. Reservation fee adjustments will not be made after reservations have been confirmed using the internet reservation service. If you are viewing inventory and find you are unable to secure one site to accommodate your request please consider calling the call center at 1-800-452-5687 to make your reservation.

Discount programs which may be offered through the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department cannot be processed when making an internet reservation. For additional information on discount programs call the OPRD Information Center at 1-800-551-6949 or visit us online at www.OregonStateParks.org.

Reservations can be made 24 hours a day, from 2 days to 9 months in advance. Campsite availability is based on call center hours, meaning sites become available when the call center opens.

Call center hours are: Monday through Friday 8am to 5pm.
