Procedures for Issuance and Enforcement of Parking Permits for Department Wildlife Areas

The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife hereby adopts the following procedures relating to issuance and enforcement of parking permits for certain vehicles on Department Wildlife Areas where parking permits are required:

(1) Parking is permitted only in designated parking areas. A parking permit is required at all times for all fee parking areas.

(2) Fee parking areas are designated by ODFW approved signs:

(3) One of the following permits is required: an annual permit or a daily permit.

(4) The fee for parking permits is $5.00 (plus $2.00 agent fee) for permits issued on a daily basis or $20.00 (plus $2.00 agent fee) for permits issued on an annual basis beginning each January 1. Any annual hunting license (including Combination and Sports Pac) will include a free annual parking permit.

(5) Permits are issued by selected local agents, Department offices that sell licenses and the Department’s Online License Sales website to a party upon payment and may be transferred from vehicle to vehicle.

(6) The permits must be visible from outside the vehicle and be displayed in the front or rear window of the vehicle.

(7) No parking permits will be required for those vehicles which are owned or operated by government agencies. Notwithstanding paragraph (5), the Department reserves the right to issue free administrative parking permits for private vehicles used by volunteers while participating in official Department-related activities. Parking permits will not be required for individuals arriving in private vehicles to address fire, health or safety emergencies.

(8)(a) A person who operates or parks a motor-propelled vehicle in violation of restrictions established and posted under OAR 635-008-0051 through 635-008-0053 commits an offense punishable as provided in ORS 496.992;

(b) The procedure for a peace officer (or other person authorized to enforce the wildlife laws) to follow upon finding a non government vehicle parked in a designated fee parking area without a permit shall consist of the issuance of a citation which shall be either delivered to the defendant or placed in a conspicuous place upon the vehicle in the violation.

(c) A person who is the registered owner of an unattended motor-propelled vehicle parked in violation of the restrictions established and posted under OAR 635-008-0051 through 635-008-0053 shall be presumed to have violated 635-008-0053(8)(a). It is an affirmative defense to a prosecution of the registered owner of a vehicle under subsection (8)(a) of this section that the use was not authorized by the owner, either expressly or by implication (or the owner was not present when the vehicle was parked.)
