Oregon State Tourism

Overview

Umpqua is noteworthy as home to the tallest sand dunes in the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area. Off-road vehicle riding is a huge sport here and visitors are rewarded with incredible views of the Pacific Ocean from the tops of the dunes.

Recreation

The featured attraction is off-road vehicle riding. Rather than trails, the area offers clear and open spaces for adventure-seeking riders. The Reedsport/Winchester Bay Chamber of Commerce puts on the summertime Dunefest to bring together families of all ages for motocross racing, treasure hunting in the sand, freestyle riding shows and more.

Facilities

Note that all 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. Seasonal rainfall may affect campsites. Contact Oregon Dunes NRA for seasonal information. Standard sites fit five vehicles and up to 20 people. The two group campsites fit 10 vehicles and 40 people. Campsites are available year-round and reservations may fill up quickly in peak summer season.

Natural Features

Campsites are dispersed along the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area on the Pacific Coast. Winchester Bay is a short drive north and Eel Lake is a short drive south. The camping area is part of the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area, known for its wind-sculpted sand dunes towering up to 500 feet above sea level.

Nearby Attractions

Visit Umpqua Lighthouse State Park, along Lake Marie. The Umpqua River Lighthouse stands on the site of the first lighthouse built on the Oregon Coast in 1857. The current lighthouse dates back to 1890.
