Camp year round in style and comfort in a yurt at our Kayak Point Park Village and River Meadows Park Village. Yurts are virtually a "turn-key" approach to camping. Just bring sleeping bags or blankets, pillows, extra clothing, and food. Nothing else is necessary. These circular, domed tents traditionally served as shelters for Mongolian nomads and were made of poles covered with felt or animal skins.
Unlike the nomads, our yurts are covered in canvas and include such amenities as electric outlets, skylights, interior lighting, windows with screens, lockable doors, and outside decks. Heat is also included, but warm clothing is recommended for winter camping. Each Yurt comes furnished with a futon, bunk bed, and coffee table. Outside each yurt you’ll find a picnic table and fire ring. Yurt Villages include lighted walkways, and nearby heated restroom with showers. Villages can accommodate group camping (families, clubs, companies, scouts, churches, schools, etc.).
The Yurt Village at Kayak Point Park is located on a bluff above Port Susan, and is adjacent to the campground. All ten Yurts are 16’ in diameter and can accommodate up to five campers. Yurt #7 has a wrap-around deck. Within the village is a small picnic shelter for the exclusive use of yurt tenants. Yurt #10 is located just outside the village in a hook-up campsite, which can accommodate three additional visitors in up to two tents or one RV.
The Yurt Village at River Meadows Park is comprised of three 20’ (dia.) yurts and three 16' yurts: Yurt 1 is ADA compliant and sleeps seven. Yurt 2 and 3 sleeps eight. Yurt 3 has a wrap-around deck which offers a panoramic view of the meadow Yurts 4, 5, and 6 can sleep up to 5.
The restroom facility is a stand-alone building comprised of six private bathrooms/showers (one for each yurt) that are accessed by using your yurt key.
Of special note at River Meadows village are the mini-yurt replicas, created by artist Glen Andersen, which are covered in colorful tile mosaics that uniquely identify each site. The sculptured yurt markers incorporate a number and distinctive color palette that act as a way-finder. A marker is posted at the entry of each yurt and includes a kaleidoscope to view the park surroundings. These six pieces of art are included in a park project that is part of the county’s One Percent for the Arts Ordinance.
Advance reservations are required and there is a 2-night minimum. Weekend reservations require both a Friday and Saturday night stay. Sorry, walk-in/same-day registrations cannot be accommodated.
Upon arrival at the park, proceed directly to the yurt village--no need to check-in with a ranger. Next to each yurt entrance is a lock box with your key inside. To access the lock box, enter the last 3 digits of your Confirmation Number (so be sure to have your Receipt/Confirmation Letter with you). If you do not receive an emailed confirmation letter shortly after completing your reservation, contact the Call Center.
Alcohol, tents, and pets are prohibited in yurts and the yurt villages. Parking is away from the yurts so we strongly urge you to leave pets at home. All yurts are smoke-free.
