There are people that do and have pitched a tent on the beach. If you choose to make camp on the beach, be prepared to break camp on request.

In most cases, there will be signs posted on the beach access that clearly inform you of what is and is not allowed on that particular beach. Please take the time to read the posted signs and follow all the regulations. Beach camping is not allowed adjacent to Oregon State Parks.

Oregon State Parks have very strict rules so you check the regulations of the individual beach you are visiting. Any specific rules for that beach will be posted at its entrance.There are people that do and have pitched a tent on the beach.

Black Bears on the Oregon Coast
News

beargarbageBlack bears are very active in the mid summer months because they are entering the breeding season. Bears can be seen moving around near feeding areas in late evening. In mid day bears will be inactive or in heavy cover where viewing them will be difficult. Most bears are feeding heavily on grass and the growing tips of brush. Good places to see bears are in clear cuts that are a few years old where brush and grass is well established and in natural forest clearings like land slide areas.

Yearling bears are becoming independent at this time of year. They can often be seen walking down forest roads or out in clear cuts as they try to establish territories. Many of these bears are small—much less that 100 lbs. in size. Some people think they are orphaned cubs but in reality they are not. These bears can be relatively easy to find if you watch clear cuts during twilight hours.

They are also wandering into coastal communities looking for food.

Floras Lake Beach: Secret on the Oregon coast
Langlois

by Terry Richard for The Oregonian

Floras ArchFloras Lake is a sizable dunes lake, popular for windsurfing because of predictable afternoon "breezes" _ which may feel like a hurricane on some days.

This lovely lake is blocked from the ocean by a narrow neck of sand, making the area one of Oregon's geologic oddities due to the New River that flows north from Floras Lake (the river was created after pioneer settlement).

While this part of northern Curry County is indeed pleasant to visit (weather permitting), the feature that makes it outstanding is the ocean beach south of Floras Lake, with its 80- to 100-foot-high line of cliffs.

There's no other beach quite like it on the Oregon coast.

Gotta love the Oregon coast -- and its parks
News

by Brian Cantwell for the Seattle Times

Seattle Times PhotoIf you're pondering a camping destination for the summer, consider this fact, which I came to recognize somewhere between the long, curving bridge above the trees in Oswald West State Park and the turnoff for Nehalem Bay: The Oregon coast has a boatload of state parks.

Along the roughly 340-mile Pacific coastline of Oregon, a quick count of state parks and recreation sites on our National Geographic waterproof road map and travel guide showed at least 64, from Astoria to Brookings -- 18 with campgrounds.

I've driven most of America's Pacific Coast, from Neah Bay to San Diego, and for my money this stretch of rugged, saltwashed Oregon is the most scenic and visitor friendly coastline in the West.

Oregon Coast: Camping adventures in the home of the brave
News

After learning campsite etiquette, Helena De Bertodano and her family marvel at the wonders along America's North Pacific Coast.

Slightly modified for yanks

yurtIt was the yurt that sold it to me: the idea of driving down America’s rugged Oregon Coast camping in Mongolian-style domed circular tents sounded like an experience not to be missed. So I booked one night at a yurt at Sunset Bay in Oregon and on that tenuous hook hung a three-week family holiday. 

Thus on a Sunday evening in early July, we found ourselves winding down the stunning coastal road towards Sunset Bay. Appropriately, the sun was setting over the beach when we arrived. The sheltered shallow cove, encircled by sandstone bluffs, looked so enticing that our three children – sick of spending half the day in the car – clamored to be let out before we had even found our yurt. Off they scampered into the rock pools, finding crabs and – as my four-year-old daughter announced – lots of "enemies": sea anemones.

Yurts cozy up wild Oregon coast
Camping Notes

From the Chicago Tribune

Somewhere between a tent and a cabin, these yurts make park guests feel closer to nature -- including the ocean right outside their door.

yurt

The Oregon coast does not disappoint, either in its grand, rocky vistas and pounding surf or — for many days of the year— in its impressive, gale-force storms. It is this awe-inspiring weather that draws many to the shore, and yet, at least for die-hard tent-campers, it is just this weather that makes coastal bivouacs a challenge.
