Hauser Sand Camping

Area Status: Open

Hauser offers a selection of dispersed campsites in the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area. Standard sites fit five vehicles and up to 20 people. The two group campsites fit 10 vehicles and 40 campers. Note that all sites can only be accessed by 4X4 vehicles. Campsites are available year-round and reservations may fill up quickly in peak summer season. 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. Sandy Way off  Hauser Depot Road is the access point for the sand camping sites #74 to 97. Site numbers 88 and 90 are group sites.

The pay station for this area is located on the way to the sand via Sandy Way off Hauser Depot Road. Sand camping permits and maps of the area are available at this station. Those with pre-paid reservations are also required to complete and deposit their sand camping permit at the pay station.

The sand dune terrain is ideal for thrill seeking off-road riders. A few designated off-road routes include the Hauser Beach Sand Route, the Bark Sand Route and the Coast Guard Sand Route. Beach goers are just a short ride from the beach, and bird watching is recommended.
