Overview

South Jetty, located less than a mile south of Florence, is an ideal camping area for off-road vehicle enthusiasts. Visitors can camp, ride dunes through all hours of daylight and take in memorable views of the Pacific Ocean from atop the tall dunes of Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area. The area is the largest expanse of coastal sand dunes in North America.

Recreation

Off-road vehicle riding is the ultimate attraction here. For added variety, all beach goers can enjoy swimming and watching sea birds. In season, whales may be spotted in the ocean as well.

From the South Jetty Day-Use Area, hikers can enjoy miles of open beach and explore dune formations above the Siltcoos River. This section is separate from the off-road vehicle area.

Facilities

Sites can only be accessed by 4X4 vehicles. 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. Standard sites fit five vehicles and up to 20 people. The group campsite fits 10 vehicles and 40 campers. Campsites are available year-round and reservations may fill up quickly in peak summer season.

Natural Features

Campsites are located directly on the sand, dispersed along the Pacific Coast and the Siltcoos River. The dunefield is known for its wind-sculpted sand dunes towering up to 500 feet above sea level. Siuslaw National Forest extends from Tillamook to Coos Bay along the coast of Oregon.

Nearby Attractions

Golfing is nearby and visitors can drive east to hike the foothills of the Oregon Coast Range.
