Stay in one of six yurts in the Yurt Village erected on the orchard portion of the original McCaulley homestead. Some of the apple, plum, and cherry trees growing between the yurts date back to at least the 1930s and remnants of the original fencing still exist. 

Yurt camping offers new opportunities for family recreation, a form of convenience camping where campers bring their own bedding and food. Three yurts are 20 feet in diameter and three are 16 feet in diameter.

Artwork



Artist Glen Andersen created ten 12 inch mini-yurt replicas, that are covered in colorful tile mosaics that uniquely identify each campsite for visitors and renters. The sculptured yurt markers incorporate a number and distinctive color palette that act as a way-finder.

Each marker is posted at the entry of the campsite and includes a kaleidoscope to view the surroundings of the park. These six pieces of art are included in this park project as part of the county’s One Percent for the Arts Ordinance.
