Smith Rock State Park

In 1997 Oregon State Parks Foundation helped raise $110,000 to purchase 5 acres to expand the park site, develop interpretive signs, install drinking fountains and improve the trail system to minimize the effects of the foot traffic on the delicate soil structure and native vegetation.

Smith Rock State Park protects a sanctuary of majestic rock spires that rise above the Crooked River in Central Oregon’s high desert. It is an internationally renowned destination for rock climbing.
