Oregon-Washington Recreation Activities

The public lands in Oregon and Washington managed by the BLM offer you an abundance of recreation opportunities. 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.
