The Oregon Coast offers a diverse landscape of sandy beaches, powerful waves crashing against rocky bluffs, tide pools, and coastal rainforests. You’ll get to explore the coastline, as well as relax at the ocean-front camp where we’ll be staying. Keep an eye out for elk, beaver, deer, eagles, great blue herons, and possibly even whales. Explore miles of rugged, sparsely populated beaches offering a discerning beachcomber hidden agates after storms.  Watch Pacific Ocean swells roll in from from the distant horizon.  Come see why the Oregon Coast is a premiere destination for outdoor enthusiasts! You’ll stay at a camp-type facility, with beds, hot showers, bathrooms, and a dining hall.  Read the detailed trip description to learn more.
