Get off the beaten path

The 15 million acres of public lands in Oregon and Washington offer an amazing array of settings including coastal beaches and headlands, Cascade forests and rivers, Columbia Plateau pothole lakes, and high desert mountains and grasslands. Across the region, facilities such as day use areas, trails, campgrounds, boat launches, visitor centers, and plenty of open space offer some of best hiking, camping, fishing, boating, horseback riding, birding, fossil collecting, and off-roading in the Northwest, along with opportunities to learn about nature, history, and culture.  Most BLM campgrounds and campsites operate on a first come, first served basis but there are a few that you can make reservations.  To learn more about camping and recreating on BLM lands click here.
