Area Status: Open
Spinreel Sand Camp sites are located directly on the sand in the heart of the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area. Access to campsites is only by 4x4 vehicles via soft sand routes. Individual sites are identified by numbered posts. Each site accommodates up to five vehicles and 20 campers for tent camping. Spinreel OHV Staging Area is the access point for the sand camping sites #58 to 73. Saunders Lake OHV Trail, off Crannog Road is an alternative access point for these sites. Sites are rustic and no toilets or campfire pits are available. Portable toilets and fire pans are highly recommended.
OHV riders have a choice of riding on designated routes like the Coast Guard Trail and ATV Trail #430, or cruising in the open riding sections. North of the Spinreel Staging Area is a beach section for horseback riders and hikers.
