“The place to stay for easy access to the Oregon Sand Dunes.”

Overall Rating

We didn’t stay here but we drove through it on our way to hike the sand dunes by John Dellenback Trail. There are a bunch of campsites and a handful of them are big enough for RVs (although I wouldn’t recommend anything bigger than our setup). Some of the sites are back-in and others are pull-through sites. The sites are on the narrow side. It’s all dry camping and $20/night. There are a few water spigots scattered around the campground but they’re not there for RVers to fill up fresh water tanks. The spigots don’t have threads on them. There are two bathroom areas with dumpsters. The John Dellenback Trail can be accessed from the campground. This is a 2.5-mile (or 3.5-mile depending on who you talk to) one-way hike out to the ocean. There is also a trail across from the last bathroom of the main campground loop that leads out to the sand dunes and it’s a shorter hike out to the dunes than if you go on the John Dellenback Trail, which worked out great for my older dog.

The sand dunes are right behind the campground! They just can’t be seen from the campground because of all the trees. The sand dunes here are the tallest dunes out of all the dunes in Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area and they are accessible to hikers – no ATVs or horses allowed.

I didn’t notice a dump station by the campground but the Oregon Dunes Visitor Information & Interpretive Center in Reedsport has a dump station ($5), but I didn't look to see if there's potable water there.
