Stub Stewart State Park

I'm sure some of you have seen the commercials about this... they always go by so fast, I thought I would gather some information for all of you... This all comes from the Oregon Parks & Recreations website.

Opening June 2007, Stub Stewart State Park is the first full-service Oregon state park in more than 30 years!

Campers, hikers, horseback riders and bicyclists will find 1,654 acres of the lush rolling hills, forest and deep canyons so typical of the northern Willamette Valley. The Hilltop Overlook Day-Use Area offers vistas of the Pacific Coast Range. The terrain is hilly and forested. The dominant geographical feature, Hares Canyon, runs the length of the park.

***Where is the park located?***
On the east side of Oregon 47, four miles north of the U.S. 26-Hwy. 47 intersection. The park is 31 miles west of Portland in Washington County.


Reservations

Stub Stewart likely will open as a first-come, first-served park. Reservations for late summer and beyond will begin in mid-June. Look for an announcement later this spring with the exact date and more details.
