Day use fees of $5 to park at Smith Rock State Park are required year-round. They are charged per vehicle, with three fee stations available.
Staying at the Bivy? Your camping receipt covers your car too for the days you are registered.
Got a motorcycle? You still need to pay the $5, but you and a buddy can share a parking space for the price of one day pass. And, in case you’re wondering, you carry your pass with you to avoid pass-snatchers.
Go past the sign to the Bivouac area.Turn in where indicated just before the Smith Rock State Park entrance sign.
The second, and main fee station is minutes after you enter the park, just past the yurt Welcome Center.
There are temporary parking areas for you to buy your pass and then move to your spot.
Be mindful of small children and pets darting around.
People are also backing up frequently or walking back to their cars from the park entrance.
The third one is located at the park’s Northern Point or “turnaround” area.
Keep driving past all the vehicles to an area that reaches a cul-de-sac.
There is a small outdoor amphitheater off to the left just past the fee station.
Some additional toilets are just behind it, making it convenient to park your car here and head down into the park from the Homestead Trail.
