Recreation

This is an outstanding destination for off-road vehicle enthusiasts. The Driftwood II off-road vehicle route begins at the campground and leads riders north into a large section of open sand dunes. This riding area extends all the way to South Jetty Road. 

For added variety, visitors can enjoy beachcombing, swimming, sunbathing, and watching sea birds at the nearby beach. If in season, whales may be spotted in the ocean as well. 

For other non-motorized hiking opportunities, visitors can explore the Waxmyrtle Trail, which follows the Siltcoos River from Waxmyrtle Campground to the beach. Elsewhere, visitors can hike the Lagoon Trail, which circles the Lagoon Campground. 

Facilities

The layout of the campground is a large parking lot with designated camping sites. Most sites have a picnic table and campfire ring, but RV pull-through sites 49-58 do not have these amenities. The campground has flush toilets, drinking water, and trash and recycling collection.

Driftwood sits in the heart of Oregon's coastal dunes, a short distance from the beaches of the Pacific Coast. The Siltcoos River, which flows from Siltcoos Lake into the Pacific Ocean, is also nearby.

A wide variety of wildlife species are present in this area.
