Heavy rains have caused flooding across the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area. Some recreation areas are impacted. The road to Horsfall Beach is flooded and the water is too deep to drive through. Carter Lake Campground bathroom has been impacted. All but four campsites at Wild Mare are under water.
Remember! It is NEVER safe to drive or walk into flood waters. It takes just 12 inches of rushing water to carry away a small car, while 2 feet of rushing water can carry away most vehicles.
Forest Service road 53 will close temporarily on weekdays from March 13 through April 30, while road reconstruction operations are in progress. The road is accessed three miles east of Waldport off Highway 34 via Eckman Creek Road...details
During Snowy Plover nesting season (March 15-September 15) we coordinate with Oregon State parks and beachgoers to protect these threatened birds during a very sensitive time. By following nesting season restrictions and sharing the beach, you can help ensure plover chicks survive to adulthood. View restrictions here.
