Try buying a non-resident fishing or hunting license or tag if you want to know what real price discouragement for non-residents is.

I find it funny that some take the higher non-res fees personally, yet at the same time demand more quality and new places to camp due to overcrowding.

Boondocking is our favorite way to to use our RV, so much available land in our neck of the woods to do so. State parks are our next favorite as sites tend to be more spacious and often come with ramadas/shelters, I certainly have no issue paying 25% more to enjoy a better RVing experience as opposed to private parks, which is absolutely our last choice, being crammed into sites is not my cup of tea. That's why it is paramount for any RV we have owned to be 100% self-contained, anywhere we park we can utilize all our rig's amenities as if plugged into shore power.

Would Oregon campers be unhappy at paying extra for out of state camping?

They have to in ID.IDAHO,

USA — Idaho State Parks will double the price for out-of-state campers and visitors starting Thursday, June 10 to comply with a new state law.

House Bill 93 specifies an increase in fees for some of the state's busiest parks, including Bear Lake, Farragut, Hells Gate, Priest Lake and Round Lake. The new price for non-residents to enter the parks jumps to $14. For out of state campers, a basic campsite at those parks will cost $48 a night.

I am from Oregon and have always had to pay an out of state fee when I camp in adjacent Washington. Our campgrounds are maxed out - it's hard to get a spot these days. I would have preferred them giving Oregon residence a discount but that would ask Politicians to cut revenue - something that will never happen. In short - I don't mind they charge a reasonable fee to out of state campers.

I would love for Wisconsin to start charging more for out of state campers. I don't think it would deter any of them from coming here. Raise out of state 25% and leave resident fees the same.
Half of the time we go into the parks near us on the weekend, we can't get a parking spot because the park is full of Illinois people. Raise their fees for entrance and camping. Use the extra money to build more campgrounds.

If I want to go, I go. I'm not going to avoid an entire state over something so trivial. Heck, I don't avoid states for political reasons either.

I camp and sightsee to get out and see the world. My priorities are: scenic appeal, pet friendly, not hot. Cost, beauracracy, and politics are the least of my concerns.

I agree 100% with you.
I spend more on gas and sightseeing places than the cost of campground
fees going from states to states.

At least in my east-coast experiences, states that charge the same for out-of-state and in-state camping in state parks are the exception rather than the rule. Most seem to give a break for residents--and that's perfectly fine by me. (I think the same is true around here for hunting and fishing licenses; it certainly is true for my home state of Vermont.)
