Oregon has the most beautiful campgrounds and we have some wonderful memories of past trips…so when Reg suggested we camp on this trip, I was tempted. Until I gave it some serious thought. Camping for us (even for one night) is never simple so in a desperate attempt to find a compromise for the nature vs. comfort battle, I found Yurts!
These ingenious little dwellings are located in many State Parks throughout Oregon (and other places in the country). We checked in and were handed a key…it was that simple! While we needed to bring sleeping bags, pillows and towels, we got a relatively comfortable bed (up off the ground), heat, electricity and use of the campground showers. Each yurt has a picnic table and a fire pit, so you won't miss the fun of toasting marshmallows.
Yurts might not be for everyone, but I think Reg and I agree that they offer us a relatively comfortable, and economical solution (we paid about $40 each night) for Road Trip accommodations.
