Overview

Spinreel Campground is an off-road vehicle rider's dream, located in the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area along Tenmile Creek in Coos County. Campers can rely on conveniences like drinking water and paved roads, with prime access to the expansive off-road trails along the sandy dunes.

The Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area Visitor Center, located beside the campground, offers educational programs and ranger-led hikes. It is open year-round, just like the campground, and provides great information on the cultural and geological history of the picturesque dunes.

Natural Features:

Spinreel Campground is in the heart of the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area, known for its wind-sculpted sand dunes towering to 500 feet above sea level. The dunes cover 1,076 acres of land, surrounded by forests and the Pacific coast. It lies in the southern edge of Siuslaw National Forest.

Recreation:

Spinreel ultimately attracts off-road vehicle enthusiasts. Thrill-seekers have their choice of riding on designated routes like the Coast Guard Trail and ATV Trail #430, or cruising in the open riding sections.

Swimming and beachcombing are also enjoyed activities along the Pacific coast. North of the campground there is a beach section for horseback riders and hikers. Fishing is available in the creek; Winter steelhead love the cold waters.

Facilities:

Drinking water, flush toilets, a picnic area and boat ramp are available for campers. The ramp is designed for small boats entering Tenmile Creek. There are no electric hookups or dump stations in this campground.

Explore the waterways of the region, including Oregon's lovely Pacific Ocean, Tahkenitch Lake and Siltcoos Lake.
