Adventure Description

Compared to most of Oregon’s State Parks, L.L. Stub Stewart State Park is spankin’ new. When it was officially opened in 2007, it became the first full-service state park to open since the early 1970s. And, situated just over 30 miles from Portland, it’s also one of the most accessible. 

Built primarily on former timber land, the park’s namesake is one of Oregon’s best-known lumbermen, state representatives, and philanthropists, Loren LaSells “Stub” Stewart. He spent a number of years serving the Oregon Parks and Recreation Commission and played an integral role in protecting outdoor playgrounds for exclusive recreational use.​

The well-designed park sits on an expansive 1,654-acre swath of land, and trails of every sort wind through the second-growth trees. Horseback riding, hiking, and mountain biking are the activities of choice, and the well-maintained trails are rideable and hikeable ideally between late spring and late fall. Mountain bikers of the greater Portland area rejoice in well-made wooden features, shapely berms, and a wide variety of trails catering to beginners, advanced riders, and all abilities in between.

The park is peppered with everything from picturesque day use areas to graveled campsites to cute, small cabins. The campgrounds and cabin village at L.L. Stub Stewart State Park are open year round. The Meeting Hall at Dairy Creek Camp West and Mountain Dale Cabin Village can be reserved by calling 800.452.5687.
