    People call it the “crown jewel” of the Oregon State Parks system, and once you visit, you know why.

Its beauty, boundless recreational opportunities and historic presence keep it there. Nestled in the foothills of Oregon’s Cascade Mountains, less than an hour east of the state capital of Salem, the sprawling 9,200 acre property is the largest state park in Oregon, and one of the most popular.

The wine region in the Willamette Valley, which was once known for fruit orchards and nurseries has transformed into one of the country’s premier cool-climate varietal producers. The unique relationship between volcanic Jory soils, elevation and protective micro climates has consistently proven ideal for vineyards, and has produced Oregon’s top Pinot Noir for decades. Enjoy the wine at one of Oregon most renowned local vineyards.
