The Horsfall Sand Camping Area is an off-road vehicle enthusiast's paradise, with open dunes, designated sand routes and stunning views of the Pacific Coast. Within the area, visitors can fish in Jordan Cove, hike along the Bluebill Trail and explore the beach near the staging area. Sand campsites are primitive and must be accessed by 4x4 vehicles, with no water available. Camping is available year-round, with each campsite accommodating up to 20 people.


The Horsfall Sand Camping Area is an outstanding destination for off-road vehicle enthusiasts. Sites are located directly on the sand at the southern end of the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area. From here, adventure seekers can experience the thrill of riding through vast open dunes or meandering through designated sand routes surrounded by coastal forest. The tops of the dunes provide prime views of the Pacific Coast to the west and the foothills of the Oregon Coast Range to the east.


Horsfall is an outstanding destination for off-road vehicle enthusiasts. Thrillseekers have a choice of riding on designated routes like the Bark Sand Route and the Bull Run Sand Route, or cruising through the open riding zones. 

Anglers can fish in Jordan Cove, which is the portion of Coos Bay that is nearest to the campsites. Hikers can access the nearby Bluebill Trail for a 1.2-mile journey around Bluebill Lake. And last but not least, the beach along the Pacific Ocean is only 2 miles from the Horsfall off-road vehicle staging area.


Sand campsites can only be accessed by 4X4 vehicles on soft sand routes. No water is available so campers should bring an ample amount. Campsites are primitive and all campers must bring portable toilets and fire pans. Standard sites fit 5 vehicles and up to 20 people. The group campsites fit 10 vehicles and 40 people. Campsites are available year-round (by reservation only) and reservations may fill up quickly in peak summer season. Within each campsite, all vehicles and tents must be positioned within 150 feet of the campsite marker post.
