      Starting Thursday Oregon Campgrounds can be booked 6 months out according to our local news. The booking time has been changed to 6am instead of midnight. Good luck.

          Is the power behind the throne in Oregon still imposing a tariff on non-Oregonians to make reservations?

              That makes things easier to plan. Here's hoping they also open some of the campgrounds they closed.

                  Reservations error at state park campgrounds leaves unhappy campers across Oregon:

                  An error in the Oregon state parks reservations system has left many unhappy campers across the state. The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department offered an apology Thursday, after its highly anticipated spring and summer campground reservations opened six hours early, leaving many prospective campers in the lurch. On Monday, the parks department announced that its reservation window would expand to six months starting Thursday, allowing campers to plan for spring break and summer vacation. The department also announced that reservations would become available at 6 a.m. instead of midnight, as had been the practice for years.

                  But it didn’t work out that way.

                  Many people who dutifully woke up at 6 a.m. Thursday to book sites at competitive campgrounds or for coveted holiday weekends were suddenly left empty handed, beat out by campers who had grabbed the sites early. State parks spokesman Chris Havel said the reservations system vendor, Aspira (which operates as ReserveAmerica), simply did not apply the new 6 a.m. start time to Oregon campgrounds, as requested. That meant campsites opened at midnight, as usual, he said. “We have made it clear that this error must be fixed immediately,” Havel said. “We sincerely apologize for the mistake to the people who waited until 6 a.m. to make their reservations just like we asked them to.”

                  The 6 a.m. start time is now working, and will be in effect for anyone making reservations Friday morning and beyond, Havel said.

                    So, that’s what happened, good to know. I was up at 5 and wanted to get the jump and it didn’t happen. Still got good spots at 4 camp grounds thru the middle of July. I’ve been use to and you have to be on at 6.59n59seconds or it’s a no go. I was able to get a spot in South Lake Tahoe in June for 2 weeks but it wasn’t easy, both me and the DW on computers hitting book now and we made it happen. The State site was great no hang ups and every thing went right thru. Making all these reservations and no trailer yet, hope it happens soon.
