Discovery Depot

Friends of Stub Stewart State Park and Banks-Vernonia Rails to Trails

Come on down to our Discovery Depot nestled in the Welcome Center and get acquainted with our park and trail. This warm, inviting venue is a great place to learn about the local history and those who've helped shape it; you can also find out what you can discover along the 20+ miles of multi-use trails within the park, come admire our mountain lion mascot, play and learn at our Discovery Table (designed for kids of all ages), or simply wander around and admire the items lovingly crafted by local artisans! 


Oregon State Parks 12 month and 24 month Park Passes are also available for purchase within the depot.


Items for sale include a "Did You Forget" section (featuring garbage bags, flashlights, tooth brushes, hand sanitizer, and similar items), homemade soaps and lotions, walking sticks, a variety of tasty snacks (many of which are also good for you), used disc golf discs, stuffed toys, post cards, and much more. 

Drop by any time, we're always glad to see you.
