Oregon Coast

There are tons and tons and TONS of vacation rentals all along the Oregon coast that are popular family reunion destinations. Our little family of 4 loves the coast and we try to visit a new spot each year. Naturally, Oregon is our location of choice when it's our turn to plan an extended family reunion. We've had reunions in Oceanside, Lincoln City, Newport and Fort Stevens.


If vacation rentals aren't your thing, Oregon offers many beautiful state parks for camping or daytime gatherings. And Oregon Parks and Recreation really does a great job on their parks. You can tent camp, take your RV, stay in a yurt or rent a cabin. Options vary from park to park - but we've never had a bad experience with any option.

If you're taking a large group with you or several branches of your family tree, I recommend reserving several houses/condos/tent sites/whatever close to one another. Check VRBO for options and book early. Accommodations (and prices) will vary greatly from site to site so read the fine print to make sure you're reserving the amenities you think you are.
