PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Great news if you’re planning to spend a sunny Saturday at one of Oregon’s many state parks — it’s free on June 1.

The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department said in honor of State Parks Day, camping is free overnight on June 1 and parking is free at day-use parks on June 1 and 2.

Camping reservations cost $8 if you wanted to guarantee a spot.

Many popular parks are also hosting special events for the occasion, including guided tours at Cape Mears, a kid’s fishing derby at Prineville Reservoir and outdoor concerts at Wallowa Lake. 

Dozens of parks are also giving away State Parks Day pins on June 1.

June 1 and 2 is also Free Fishing Weekend. That means you can fish, crab and clam anywhere in Oregon without a license.
