DABNEY STATE PARK
The classic summer place, Dabney has been a popular cooling-off swimming and picnic spot for over 50 years. It's easy to see why when you visit. The lower, older part of the park at the west end features an asphalt trail leading down to a classic swimming hole. Large picnic tables and electric cooking stations are on hand and fill up quickly on hot days. The newer parts of the park feature a covered, reservable picnic shelter and trails winding through tall bamboo, horsetail, cottonwoods and alders.
Check out the new disc golf course, made possible through a partnership with the Oregon Disc Sports Association.
You'll find a boat ramp near the swimming area. It's open to boaters year-round.
No dogs, except seeing-eye dogs, are permitted on park grounds. Alcohol is not allowed in those sections downstream of the main portion of the park, below the Stark Street Bridge.
