Oregon lawmakers have approved $50 million to help fund several projects for the next five years. State park staff presented some of the plans during an earlier session of the Parks and Recreation Commission.

Matt Rippee, director of park services, said that expanded campgrounds are in the works for several state parks within the Willamette Valley, including Silver Falls and Champoeg. The project will provide more options for Oregonians seeking quick camping adventures.

“It also gives folks an opportunity, if a big storm comes through in the middle of the night, or a baby is crying, they can hop in the car and head home, and it’s not a four-hour drive,” Rippee said.

Also part of the plan is a visitor center and expanded parking spaces for the famous Smith Rock State Park near Redmond.
