OR: 20 most popular Oregon state parks

Listen to this story

PORTLAND, Ore. — We already know Oregon state parks are popular, but which of the nearly 200 park sites are the most popular?

There are certainly some surprises in the results, but one trend that shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone who has spent time traveling around the state is the fact that the coast absolutely dominates. Of the 20 most popular park sites, 14 are found on the Oregon coast, leaving three in the Willamette Valley, two in the high desert and one in the southern Oregon.
