Carter Lake Campground is a family favorite in the Oregon Dunes Recreation Area. Part of the campground is located on the dunes where children love to play in the sand, and the other half is located on Carter Lake, perfect for fishing, swimming and boating. Campsites are nestled among shore pine, sitka spruce and Douglas fir, with trimmed hedges of rhododendron. Drinking water and flush toilets are available and each site has a campfire pit and picnic table. Parking aprons are paved.
Hiking the Carter Dune Trail, fishing for rainbow trout, canoeing and kayaking, and off-road vehicle riding are all nearby attractions.
