Sea Perch puts you right next to sand and surf

The Sea Perch RV Resort on the Central Oregon Coast is indeed set on a picturesque perch.

Some sites at this small RV park just south of the town of Yachats are only about 30 feet from sand -- and during some high tides -- crashing surf.

It's the closest you can get to the ocean in any RV park in Oregon, say managers Barb and Tony Shepherd.

In addition to this beach access, the Sea Perch does most everything right. While the sites aren't very private, they are modern and tidy, and the grounds are well-kept. Amenities include a clubhouse, laundry, WiFi and cable.

But it's all about feeling the power of the Pacific Ocean when you stay at the Sea Perch. It's always there, crashing on the beach just below the oceanfront sites, which go for $100 a night during high season. A premium site on the end goes for $125. Other sites farther from the ocean but still with nice views are $90 a night.

Rates go down by $10 a night from November to April on most sites. For reservations, go to the Sea Perch website at
