Considering purchase of gas powered mini bikes to take camping and use to explore USFS roads here in Oregon. If we have spark arresters & are respectful ^& quiet is this legal? I wonder if we can ride out of the camp and explore? Hope this is the best location to post this

I would call the US Forest Service in Portland and get the official word.

Each state will have different requirements so the above is the correct answer. Here is your home state
https://www.oregon.gov/oprd/ATV/docs/hb_laws_rules.pdf

Just as an example here is Michigan's requirements.

I know that there are a few campgrounds that will not allow any form of motorcycle in the campground. .. MBTP is one of them... Once and IF you decide , I would call ahead to verify

Do not believe that mini-bikes and motorcycles are ATVs.

According to the link Hondavalk provided, Oregon considers them atv's and requires an operator safety card before they can be operated on state land.

Oasisbob mentioned USFS (Forest Service) campgrounds. Those are federal lands, not state. The suggestion to call the office of the national forest where you want to camp to check the rules is the best one. We have about seven different national forests in Oregon. Presumably they all have the same rules but there may be local exceptions. The forest service does have an acronym-laden plan that defines motor vehicle use in the forests. I know in some forest service campgrounds, it is either allowed or not allowed to start the engine of an ATV in the campground (varies by campground).
