Department of Forestry No Longer Enforces Gun Ban

Mr. Wilson

The Oregon Department of Forestry (ODF) has stopped enforcing section c of OAR 629-25-050(5). This section relates to possession of a loaded firearm in state-owned forestland designated as a recreation area. The rule was originally developed with assistance from the Oregon State Parks and Recreation Department. This was done so ODF would be aligned with that agency's rules for campgrounds. Oregon State Parks has since rescinded that rule. We, too, recognize the need to do the same.

Thank you for your interest in State Forests. If I can be of further assistance, don't hesitate to contact me.

Good to hear!

I was camping at an OR State park last summer and saw their no firearms OAR listed on their "rules" sign bolted on the restrooms. I knew OFF would have a grand time if the OAR was ever enforced.
