SALEM, Ore. -

December is "stocking stuffer" month at Oregon State Parks. From December 1 through December 31, park-goers can save $5 on the state park 12-month day-use parking permit.

The state park permit, which is required at 26 Oregon state parks, is on sale for $25 - regularly $30 - in December.

Visitors who do not have long-term passes must purchase $5 daily permits.

The Oregon Coast Passport is also discounted $5 in December. The passport is a multi-agency product, valid at Oregon State Parks, U.S. Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management and National Park Service sites along the Oregon Coast. The coastal passports are on sale for $30 - regularly $35 - in December.

The 12-month OPRD permits and coastal passports can be purchased, along with other gift possibilities such as a 24-month state park day-use parking permit for $50 and gift certificates in any amount, by calling the Oregon State Parks Information Center, 1-800-551-6949, Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Callers may use debit or credit cards that have VISA or MasterCard logos to purchase permits, passports and gift certificates.

Walk-in customers can buy the OPRD permits at major OPRD offices, some state park friends' group stores and selected local businesses throughout the state. A list of vendors is posted at www.oregonstateparks.org/dayuse_permit_vendors.php . The coastal passports are sold at coastal state parks, federal agency offices and local vendors in several coastal communities.
