Oregon tourism brings more income as well as problems

Published on : Tuesday, November 8, 2016

oregonOregon is hoping a record number of tourist visits to its state parks and federal lands for the second time in a row. Studies show that there is a growing crowd since 2013 and it’s continually on the rise. The Columbia River Gorge and Central Oregon are the best and most popular recreation areas, but visits to the coast, Crater Lake National Park and John Day Fossil Beds have also amplified.

 
The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department says that they are catering to more people than ever before and at the same time, they are having a hard time managing the crowds and wear and tear in the parks. According to Travel Oregon, the $10.8 billion industry accounts for more than 105,000 jobs, and can bring economic stability in rural towns.

 

However, it has also brought damage to ecologically sensitive areas and serious accidents. Opal Creek Scenic Area, Oneonta Gorge and Blue Pool on the McKenzie River have been in news in recent times due to lot of trouble. Hence, Oregon officials are considering bringing a restriction for people in visiting certain spots.
