Several years ago, my family discovered camping in a Yurt. They are convenient and warm and a wonderful way to camp. Each year we would book a few weekends to camp in the summer and had a great time. Well, the last few years it has been nearly impossible to get a yurt in the summer on a weekend. It seems that everyone has discovered out little secret about how yurt camping is so great. Now it's like winning the lottery apparently because I just can't get a reservation. I've been trying now since early July to book for next year. The rules are that the earliest you can reserve is 9 months from the date you want. I have tried calling and the computer at the same time each Friday at 8am when they open and by 8:01 a.m. every yurt is booked in Oregon State Parks. I guess it's back to tent camping for us because I never have been lucky at the lottery. Oy!!
**Update** I should have complained sooner because minutes after writing this I was able to make a reservation for a beach down South on the coast for 3 nights**
