Goosepasture OHV Staging Area

Area Status: Open

Located less than a mile from Florence, OR, this popular OHV staging area can be accessed from South Jetty Road.

This large paved parking area can accomodate longer trailers, but can often be full by mid-morning during the busy summer season and sunny weather weekends. OHV riders have access to large open sand dunes, designated OHV trails through vegetated areas as well as the beach.

Goosepasture Staging also provides access to South Jetty Sand Camping sites.

A noise buffer OHV closure is in place on the eastern boundary of the riding area due to proximity to nearby residential areas and adjacent non-motorized recreation areas.
