The Siuslaw National Forest is home to two popular Off- Highway Vehicle Riding areas: Sand Lake Recreation Area and the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area.

Both the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area and Sand Lake Recreation Area have campgrounds and staging areas especially well suited for OHV use.


Where can I ride?

About half of the area that comprises the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area and all of the Sand Lake Recreation Area are open to motorized vehicles. However, it is just as important to know where you can't ride . Please refer to the MAPS in each section for riding area information.

Also, be sure to check our Motor Vehicle Use Map to see where you can ride your vehicles in the forest.

Here are the Rules!

OHVs are a great way to combine America’s love of motor vehicles with the love of the outdoors.

To make your time in the outdoors safe as well as entertaining, you need to know the laws governing OHV use on public land.

The cornerstone of any outdoor recreation activity is respect: respect for yourself; respect for others and respect for the environment.
