Ywca Camp Westwind
YWCA Camp Westwind is located 90 miles southwest of Portland, just north of Lincoln City at the mouth of the Salmon River Estuary. Camp Westwind encompasses a 500-acre site of pristine and scenic coastal ecosystems on the Salmon River Estuary.
The YWCA of Greater Portland has been actively responsible for the stewardship of this land since 1937, and has preserved Camp Westwind in an unspoiled and mostly undeveloped state. Buildings are clustered on 20 acres, leaving 480 acres for exploration and wildlife.
While facilities have been recently updated, they remain rustic by design. Most cabins are simple wooden buildings with built-in bunks and mattresses, heat and light. It is a short walk to the centrally located shower house or the outhouse in each unit of cabins. The general camp terrain is sandy and hilly.
