Area Status: Open
South Jetty sand camping sites are located directly on the sand, dispersed along the coast and the Siltcoos River and must be accessed by 4X4 vehicles only. Standard sites accommodate up to 20 people and five vehicles. Two group sites accommodate up to 40 people and 10 vehicles. Goosepasture OHV Staging Area is the access point for sand camping sites 1 to 14. No water is available so campers should bring an ample amount. Campsites are primitive and it's recommended that all campers bring portable toilets and fire pans. Campsites are available year-round and reservations may fill up quickly in peak summer season.
Off-road vehicle riding is the ultimate attraction at here but beach goers can enjoy swimming and watching sea birds. In season, whales may be spotted in the ocean as well. From the South Jetty Day-Use Area, hikers can enjoy miles of open beach and explore dune formations above the Siltcoos River. This section is separate from the off-road vehicle area.
