Spinreel Sand Camping Area provides a unique opportunity for off-road vehicle enthusiasts to explore the vast open sand dunes of the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area. Visitors to the area can also find beaches, ponds, and the John Dellenback Dunes Trail nearby. This primitive camping area requires visitors to bring their own water, portable toilets, and fire pans. For more information, please call (541) 271-6000.


The Spinreel sand camping area is located within the largest off-road vehicle riding zone in the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area. Sand campsites are located directly on the sand and are accessible by 4x4 vehicles only. Visitors to this area can experience the thrill of scaling the vast open dunes, or they can explore the designated sand routes that wind through the coastal forest. 


Spinreel is an outstanding location for off-road vehicle enthusiasts. Thrill seekers have a choice of riding on designated routes (such as the Coast Guard Trail) or cruising in the open riding zones.

Elsewhere, the Pacific Ocean beaches provide opportunities for beachcombing, viewing wildlife, and playing in the surf. To the north of the Spinreel Staging Area, there is a beach section open for horseback riders and hikers only (no motorized use). Other portions of the beach are open to off-road vehicles.


Campsites can only be accessed by 4x4 vehicles via soft sand routes. Individual sites are identified by numbered posts; camp only within designated sites and within 150 feet of the site marker. Each site accommodates up to 5 vehicles and 20 people.

This camping area is primitive and provides no water, restrooms, or campfire rings. Visitors must bring their own water, portable toilets, and fire pans.

Natural Features

This dispersed camping area is on the sand in the heart of the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area. Miles of open sand dunes are available for exploration and adventure. The sand dunes are surrounded by coastal forest, and the Pacific Ocean is nearby. A handful of small ponds are also tucked away amongst the dunes. 

Nearby Attractions

This camping area is near a number of scenic water bodies, including Eel Lake, Tenmile Lake, Tenmile Creek, and the Pacific Ocean. 

The John Dellenback Dunes Trail is located two miles north of the Spinreel Staging Area. This is a non-motorized trail that traverses a section of tall and open sand dunes on the way to the beach.
