Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area OHV
The Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area is known for its wind-sculpted sand dunes towering to 500 feet above sea level. Adventure seekers can experience the thrill of riding through vast open dunes or meandering through designated sand routes surrounded by shore pine, waxmyrtle, huckleberry, and salal.
Where Can I Ride?
About half of the area that comprises the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area is open to motorized vehicles. Three main areas listed below offer riding opportunities and camping and staging areas. However, it is just as important to know where you can't ride.
