There is an abundance of Oregon Coast yurt rentals just waiting for you to arrive and move in for your Oregon Coast getaway.
A yurt is a circular wood frame covered in canvas. It has a door, usually a window, and a domed canvas roof. It is like a tent only better.The builders of western yurts have taken the yurts built by the nomads in the steppes of Central Asia and made adaptations to fit western needs.
The Oregon Coast yurt rentals in Oregon State Parks are about 16 feet in diameter and feel very roomy when you are inside. They sleep five people with a bunk bed that is a double bed on the bottom bunk and a single bed on the top. Each yurt also has a Futon sofa that converts to a double bed. The yurts have electricity, lights, and a space heater. You can lock the door and there is a skylight that can be opened for ventilation. You don't have to step right out the door into bad weather because there is a little covered porch.
You cannot cook inside these yurts but you do have an outdoor fire pit and an outdoor picnic table. If you are a wintertime guest, you can cook outside under the porch roof if the weather is bad. The delux yurts at Umpqua Lighthouse State Park do have a kitchen and bathroom.
So what do you need to bring when you rent a yurt? Just the basic camping stuff that you would take if you were camping in a tent.
The yurts do have mattresses so you don't have to fool with air mattresses.
These yurts are extremely popular year round and you do need to make reservations. Below I have listed the state parks that have yurts. If you are not familiar with the parks listed find out more
