“Cheap camping on the Oregon Dunes”

Reviewed Jan 31, 2019

Overall Rating

Derrick Rd dispersed part of the Sand Lake Recreation Area in the Siuslaw National Forest. $5/night,14 day limit. Free with Interagency Annual Pass / NW Forest Pass.
.
OHV access point and dispersed camping area in a little forested pocket abutting ~1000 acres of rideable dunes. Vault toilets, fire rings, and a couple picnic tables. Soft sand in all but a couple camp spots. No cell signal on vz/sprint/t-mobile/us cellular. Probably a mad house in the summer with all the OHVs, but on a stormy weekday in December nobody was out riding.

“Sandy campground great for OHVs, not so much for RVs”

Reviewed Nov 21, 2016

Overall Rating

We went to check out this campground one Sunday in October. Although the sites near the entrance look to be gravel (as opposed to the sand sites farther down) we found this to be deceiving as they in fact were mostly sand underneath. We got extremely stuck in the sand due to some poor advice from the camp host. By the time the second (and bigger) tow truck finally pulled us out, we left for the Blue Heron Cheese Factory in Tillamook, which allows overnight RV parking.

That being said RV's should probably avoid this campsite, the forest ranger we met on the way in told us we'd be fine, but there is very little gravel in the gravel sites.

If you have 4WD and a tent this would be a really cool place to camp.

No cell service at the campground.
