Oregon’s rugged coastline and incredible beaches beckon thousands of visitors every year. It’s easily one the busiest stretches of coastline in the USA and no doubt an epic bucket list road trip!
To make a visit to this iconic area of the state how about making it that much sweeter by staying in a unique yurt on the Oregon Coast? There are tons of these incredibly cool yurts sprinkled across the state but we gathered some of the coolest ones along the coast and near it for you.
Oregon Coast Yurts
There are some very cool yurts in Oregon, some are in a state park and some are owned privately. We’ve given you a mix of both below depending on your yurt needs! The state parks tend to be a bit more simple and the privately-owned yurts definitely have a few extra luxuries.
We have them split up from North to Central to South along the coast for you and included all the links you need for booking your stay.
North Oregon Coast Yurts
1. Fort Stevens State Park
Fort Stevens State Park really does have it all, including hiking, swimming, a huge sandy beach, and several historical attractions, making it the perfect place to set up camp in a comfortable yurt. There are around 4,300 acres to explore, with one of the main attractions being the huge shipwreck right on the beach.
The yurts sit in the large campsite, and they all have a bunk bed and a futon, a table and chairs, electricity, and heating. As the campsite is so large, it is great in terms of amenities, with clean restrooms near most sites.

3. Nehalem Bay State Park
Listen to the sound of the waves as you lay in your comfortable yurt on the Oregon Coast in Nehalem Bay State Park.
The campsite is set in a forest of conifer trees and is just a short walk to the beach over a series of grassy sand dunes. Once you cross these, you’ll be treated by a wide, sandy beach on a spit on the Nehalem River.

They sleep eight people and have everything you will need for a comfortable stay, including electrical outlets, heating, lighting, and are just a short walk to clean bathroom facilities.
They have a covered porch outside as well, perfect for if it rains. If you want to go a little more upmarket, there is even the option of renting a deluxe yurt, which also comes with a private bath and shower and a kitchen, which is often a good option for those choosing a longer stay.

This section of coast certainly feels pretty remote, but there is no better place for secluded walks on the beach, with it not unusual to walk for miles and not spot another person.
If you fancy some more challenging hikes, head to Cape Perpetua Scenic Area or Heceta Head Lighthouse.

I challenge you to find an Oregon coast yurt cooler than this Surf Dome at Otter Rock. The futurist, geometric dome, dotted with skylights, will ensure you enjoy a stay quite unlike any other Oregon Coast experience you will have ever had. As a guest, you have complete access to the top two floors and spacious decking.
Inside the yurt, a modern, open-plan living room flooded with light, with a large kitchen and dining area and two comfortable bedrooms, one of which has a double, and the other some bunk beds.
This accommodation is located just three blocks from the thundering and mighty Devils Punchbowl, a must-see on any trip down the coast. This cavernous rock formation could be as old as 18 million years, and watching the waves crash in and out is pretty mind-blowing. The best way to reach the trail is via the accessible 0.8 mile Devils Punchbowl Trail, which will take you directly to the viewing area.

You have to check out the Oregon Dunes when you are in the area. You’ll feel like you are in the Sahara rather than in the state of Oregon. Explore the hiking trails, or for a more adrenaline-fuelled way to take in the dunes, why not have a go at sandboarding?

Be at one with nature at this forest yurt, where your closest neighbors might be the resident chipmunks or birds high in the trees that surround you.

Just a short walk away; you’ll reach the clean bathrooms and with campfire area and endless trails to explore right on your doorstep.

15. Umpqua Lighthouse State Park
Pick from the standard or the deluxe yurt at Umpqua Lighthouse State Park, depending on the level of luxury you are looking for in your camping trip.
If you don’t mind splashing out a little bit, the deluxe yurts come with a private bathroom and shower and a small kitchen area, which could be a good option if you are looking to stay for an extended period of time, or in the winter when outside bathroom runs are not very appealing.
The yurts are quite large, some sleeping seven people with a mix of bunk beds and futons, but you have to bring your own bedding.
To get to the beach, you have to follow a trail for about a mile, so it may not be your first choice of camping if you want to be right on the beachfront.
