Winter camping in a Yurt

Do you ever want to get away for the weekend but don't have an extra 4 or 5 hundred bucks laying around for a resort hotel?  Have you ever considered going camping?  Yes in February.

My family and I will often pack up and head out to one of the many Oregon State Parks that offer Yurt camping.  The cost is reasonable and the accommodations are quite comfortable!

You see yurts, although they look like a glorified tent are actually quite comfortable...even in winter.  They are always dry, they have electricity, and yes they are heated.  We even bring our laptop or portable dvd player so we can watch a movie if it gets too wet to go outside.  The Oregon coast or Cascade mountains are fabulous recreation opportunities right at our doorstep and a great way to enjoy them is in a Yurt.

So, the next time you are looking for a get-a-way on a budget.  Reserve a Yurt!
