Who We Are
The Oregon Coast Visitors Association (OCVA) is a seven-county destination management organization. Recognized by the Oregon Tourism Commission as the Regional Destination Management Organization for Oregon’s 363-mile coastline. We work in cooperation with local chambers of commerce, visitor and convention bureaus, promotions committees, regional organizations, state and federal resource management agencies, attractions, accommodations, and destination marketing organizations from Astoria to Brookings to promote vacation travel, recreation, attractions and overnight stays on Oregon’s Coast.
What We Do
We jointly market, advertise and promote Oregon’s coastal communities, attractions, lodging properties, retail stores, shopping malls, community festivals, annual events, restaurants and 363 miles of public beaches, State and Federal parks and waysides.
OCVA also works cooperatively with the Oregon Tourism Commission, Oregon State Parks, U.S. Bureau of Land Management, U.S. Forest Service and Oregon Department of Transportation promoting the Oregon Coast.

How It Works
By calling one central phone number, 1-888-OCVA101, visitors are put in touch with every participating partner on the Oregon Coast. Local communities and partners provide prospective visitors with their own promotional information on lodging, parks, restaurants, events and attractions in their area. Our website, VisitTheOregonCoast.com, provides links to OCVA partners as well as to TravelOregon.com which helps visitors plan their coastal trips and vacations.
