Summary: Prineville BLM is requesting input on options to issue the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department (ORPD) a Recreation and Public Purpose (R&PP) lease for about 10,000 acres in the lower John Day River basin, 22 miles northwest of Condon, Oregon. The State would manage the leased lands in together with the Cottonwood Canyon State Park. The proposed lease would identify the terms and conditions for how ORPD could use the public land, including the development and maintenance of almost 32 miles of roads and trails. Without this lease, ORPD would not be able to connect trail segments and would limit public access in this area for hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding. If the lease is approved, camping would also be limited to ORPD's designated sites within the park boundary.
