Where to Glamp in Oregon
When it comes to glamping in Oregon, you have a wide choice of places to visit. Oregon is quite forested compared to many other parts of the country. The forests offer tipis, cabins, yurts, treehouses, and vintage trailers. Probably the most popular area to glamp would be along the coast. The biggest reason for this is no matter how warm the day may be at the ocean, it can get cold, windy, and damp at night.
In the northern part of the state, you will find beautiful areas along the Columbia River or at the coast. In Southern Oregon, there are numerous lakes like Hyatt, Howard Prairie, Diamond, Willow, and many others that all have resorts with cabins. You will find yurt camping along the coast. At Eugene, right in the middle of the state, you can camp in a comfortable tipi.
Luxury Camping in Oregon
When it comes to glamping, you will not need to pack a tent, but you will need to pack differently than if you were staying at a motel. Your first step should be to find out exactly what a particular site provides. Evenings in Oregon are usually a bit chilly no matter what time of year you go, so make sure you have plenty of bedding and your favorite pillow. Be sure to check and see if a site provides bedding and has heating and/or air conditioning.
Oregon’s weather tends to be fairly mild during the day, but it can also vary a lot, so no matter what you pack for clothing, plan to pack for dressing in layers. That way, you are ready for anything. You will have plenty to explore and experience during the day, but what should you plan to do at night? Find out if you will have Wi-Fi available at your site. You may want to bring some board games, a deck of cards, or a good book as well.
If you are visiting during the summer, be sure to bring sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat. Oregon can be rugged, so you will want a good pair of boots if you are hiking as well as a daypack and a water bottle to stay hydrated. Do not forget mosquito repellant since the bugs often like to visit at night. Water shoes will come in handy, too, if you are near the lakes or rivers since the rocks can be sharp or slippery. Many camp areas are far from stores, so do some research to find out if you will need to bring food or snacks. You may want bathroom supplies, too, like a soft towel, shampoo, and conditioner. Some things are provided at some sites, but you may want to play it safe and bring your own supplies just in case.
