Overview

Description

Park is only accessible east bound on I-84.
Thank you for choosing Benson State Park for your event or picnic. We hope you enjoy your visit and have a chance to take advantage of the many recreational opportunities at Benson Lake. This lake is stocked by the Oregon Dept. of Fish and Wildlife - so bring your fishing pole if you'd like to try your luck. The water is warm enough in the summer months to swim in, so bring your swimsuit - or bring along a blanket and sunbathe along it's banks. There's a horseshoe pit and volleyball net for you to enjoy (call Rooster Rock Park for more info 503-695-2261 ext 0).

Pets (dogs) are not allowed in the lake(s).
A year round 9 hole disc golf course is available for park users (bring own discs).
During peak summer season (Memorial Day through Labor Day) Benson is staffed by park personnel to help you with any questions. We look forward to your visit and hope it will be one you'll want to repeat.
