Lottery Funds Support State Parks

No matter where you live in Oregon, you’re just a short drive away from some of the nation’s most beautiful, relaxing state parks. Our parks invite you to take a breath and surround yourself in nature. It’s one of the perks of being an Oregonian.

Lottery dollars help maintain and improve all 250+ Oregon state parks. These funds help the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department maintain campsites, restrooms, paths and plant life, so they’re ready to greet visitors each year. Oh yeah, Lottery funds and OPRD also support the local community parks in towns like yours scattered across the state.

Oregon’s state parks offer something for everyone. A mountain wilderness, that slide across the street, or a campfire with s’mores are just a stone’s throw away. Thanks to Lottery dollars, there’s a state park (or community park) nearby just ready and waiting.

Get out your Oregon map, choose a park and prepare for adventure.
