Early settlers of Portland had their work cut out for them in order to clear some space in the middle of the Oregon’s dense forest. Their work was not immediately finished, since their first push left the ground covered in tree stumps that would take more labor to clear. As a result, Portland was given the nickname Stumptown in reference to the half-cleared city, the remaining stumps of which provided a useful path for residents hoping to avoid the muddy roads below. These days, the stumps have been cleared and Portland is a bustling city with several booming industries, but the forest remains always within arm’s length. While the city’s unique culture is to be enjoyed, we suggest that Glampers venture beyond the city limits. Book a yurt or a luxury chalet deep in the woods to enjoy the best of Oregon.
