Chandler State Wayside is a state park in southern Oregon, U.S.. Somewhat unusual for this part of Oregon, it is covered in large Ponderosa Pine. The picnic area is near Crooked Creek which contains crayfish and rainbow trout.

The Chandler wayside is 16 miles (26 km) north of Lakeview, Oregon. It has 85 acres (34 ha) including land on both sides of Highway 395.[2] The wayside offers an excellent view of Abert Rim which is approximately 2 miles (3.2 km) to the east of the wayside.
