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.
2. Cozy Yurt in Private Park
This accommodation is nestled in the forest for a little privacy, includes power and heating, and even supplies linen and towels, so you don’t have to worry about bringing your own. There is also free wifi and a bathroom and shower building nearby.
The yurt features a queen bed, but there is room for two hideaway beds if you don’t mind it being a little bit of a squeeze. Meals can be cooked on the BBQ in the outdoor bar pavilion, and there is a kitchen available for guests to use.
There is also a chill-out log pavilion if you want a bigger area to hang out, with a few games, tables and chairs, and a community fire pit.
One of the biggest draws to this yurt is its close vicinity to the trail, ideal if you are a fan of cycling. If you don’t want to ride, there is also a nature trail on the property, and Beaver Creek is perfect for fishing. Of course, the coast is just a short drive away, with Cannon Beach and Seaside some of the closest spots.
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.
All yurts come with a covered picnic table and fire pit for al fresco dining, with a basic yet comfortable interior, perfect for resting your head after a long day of exploring this part of the Oregon Coast.
