National Park Service Sites in Oregon

  • Lewis and Clark National Historical Park
  • Oregon Caves National Monument
  • Crater Lake National Park
  • Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area
  • Multnomah Falls

Oregon offers all or part of 5 National Parks, plus several National Monuments. Some folks think Newberry National Volcanic Monument should be part of the Park Service list but that 55,000-acre property is within the bounds of Deschutes National Forest and is under the purview of the US Forest Service.

Traveling across Oregon you'll come across multiple sites that are parts of the Oregon, California and Lewis & Clark National Historic Trails. Lewis & Clark National Historical Park is at the western terminus of the Lewis & Clark National Historical Trail and offers a replica of Fort Clatsop and trails that lead westward to the ocean's edge. John Day Fossil Beds National Monument is comprised of several sites, too, the largest of which is the Sheep Rock Unit.

Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area is not an NPS location but anyone who drives along Interstate 84 is going to pass right through the heart of the scenery and it's spectacular. Don't forget to stop and check out Multnomah Falls.
