Who we are and what we do: Camp Dakota is one of the best places in Oregon to play paintball. We have quite literally introduced more people to the sport of paintball than anyone else in the northwest with our family friendly environment, competetive pricing, and flexible hours of operation. We cater to new players and specialize in birthday groups, youth groups, family outings, and team building events. We have a great outdoor woodsball field with plenty of bunkers, trenches, thick forest, and even a wooden city scene to play in. We also have a separate speedball field that is set up for centerflag type games. This is a great place for new players who just want a fun and safe place to learn to play paintball in a comfortable setting. Most people who come to play paintball at Camp Dakota are just here to have a good time and don't take themselves or the game too seriously. We have a covered staging area, picnic tables, and a propane BBQ that is free for our guests to use while they are here for the day.
How do you play? Paintball has many variations. Usually the game is a variation of Capture the Flag. Players carry paintball guns that shoot small balls of non-toxic paint at one another. Two or more teams will compete to capture and move a flag to another locations. Opponents are eliminated from play when they are hit by a paintball that breaks on them. The players that are eliminated are required to exit the game and must wait until the next game begins to return to play. Games typically last 10 to 20 minutes. Teams often will change and the referee may make adjustments in order that all player will have the opportunity to play on a winning team. Boundaries, starting points, and goals are likely to change from game to game to keep things interesting.
What should I wear? Many experienced paintball players will wear special paintball gear to protect themselves, or at least wear multiple layers. Long sleeves, jeans of pants of a tough material, and shoes with plenty of ankle support.
