I will be camping with my family near Pendleton. I OC in my everyday life in WA. I know that in Washington parks and campsites are not prohibited.

Two questions;

1) Open carry in a vehicle? loaded? (I will be coming down 82 to 84, not near cities with bans)

2) Open carry in Oregon state parks?


Thank you for the info

I OC that route once or twice a year.

Excerpts from handgunlaw.us page for Car Carry in Oregon:

Oregon has no State law against carrying a loaded handgun in your car as long as it’s : (a) Not concealed or (b) "Not readily accessible." (If Concealed)
...
(3) Firearms carried openly in belt holsters are not concealed within the meaning of this section
.

I OC'd on the tour of the Pendleton Woolen Mills last year with no issues.

State Park Carry is also OK.
