What We Do
The BLM public lands in Oregon and Washington offer unlimited recreation opportunities. On more than 15 million acres of public lands, visitors can picnic with family and friends in western Oregon one weekend, then explore the remote wildlands east of the Cascade Mountains the next. Recreational settings include evergreen forests; high desert; lava flows; rugged river canyons and rushing whitewater; sand dunes; coastal headlands, spits, and estuaries; and cultural settings such as historic trails, ranches, and archeological sites. Hiking, camping, hunting, fishing and boating are just some of the many activities to enjoy on your public lands.

The nine wilderness areas in Oregon and Washington are places where natural processes take precedent; areas managed so that nature remains substantially unchanged by human use. Rugged trails provide the only access into wilderness, and travel is restricted to foot or horseback. Maps, photos, videos, and handy brochures await you! Spend some time in these unique areas and #GoWild!
