Oregon rest areas are typically roadside facilities that provide, at a minimum, parking and restrooms. Although some
may have information kiosks, vending machines, and picnic areas. There are some (8) that have even have dump station facilities, where RVers may empty their sewage holding tanks.
They are mainly maintained by the Oregon Department of Transportation. Some may be closed due to maintenance issues, its always best to have a alternate rest stop just in case. There are
portions of 27 day use Oregon State parks that have been designated as rest areas, creating an unforgettable scenic stop over. Click the links below...
