Yachats, Oregon
W E L C O M E     T O

Yachats, Oregon is a tiny resort community nestled on the northern Oregon coast. Located just a few miles north of Cape Perpetua, this small town is the perfect place to stroll on the beach in the summer, or watch the wild winter storms.

Fishing on the Yachats River offers the opportunity to catch trout and freshwater salmon. Between April and October, people come to catch the sardine-like smelt. Yachats is one of the few ocean beach areas where smelt come ashore to spawn. During the second Saturday in July, Yachats has a tasty smelt fry, where they serve more than 500 lbs. of the silver fish.

There are restaurants for every type of budget, ranging from take away to specialty gourmet dining. Wild mushroom cuisine is featured at the Yachats Village Mushroom Fest, held in October. The festival includes mushroom walks, mushroom exhibits and identification, as well as music and entertainment. Accommodations in Yachats include secluded suites to cabins to bed and breakfasts, many of which take advantage of the spectacular views available in the area.

Other recreational activities to enjoy include beachcombing, clam digging, hiking and camping. There are several small campgrounds, and even a bike camp area, within a few minutes of downtown Yachats. They include Neptune State Park (several hike/bike sites, fee), Ten Mile Creek (four tent/small RV sites, no fee), the Forest Service campground at Cape Perpetua Scenic Area (37 sites for trailers, tents or motor homes, fee), and Rock Creek (16 sites, mostly tent, fee). For more information, contact the Yachats Area Chamber of Commerce, 541-547-3530.
