Media and Interested Parties

On July 1, various fees for the use of Clackamas County Parks will be slightly increased. 

Specifically, the following increases will occur at Barton, Metzler and Feyrer Parks:

  • Tent camping fees will increase from $21/night to $22/night 
  • RV camping fees will increase from $26/night to $28/night

Additionally, after Labor Day, the parking fee for all county parks with such a fee will increase from $5 to $6. Registered boater parking at the Barton, Carver, Hebb and Boones Ferry Marina boat ramps will remain unchanged at $2. 

The changes were discussed in a Policy Session last month and enacted at this morning’s Business Meeting.

Fee increases for camping and parking will help offset rising costs for operating and maintaining clean, safe parks for the public to use for outdoor recreation. Since 2015, park user surveys have scored Clackamas County Parks consistently above 90 percent for cleanliness, safety and customer service.  

Clackamas County Parks operates more than a dozen beautiful parks for anyone to enjoy. Visit our Parks webstite to review the facilities and plan your visit.
