Overview

Driftwood is a designated off-road vehicle riding campground that offers direct sand access to the thrilling Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area. Heralded as the largest expanse of coastal sand dunes in North America, the recreation area attracts riders looking for the action of dune riding and the comfort of camping in a developed campsite with perks like hot showers.

Natural Features:

The campground sits in the heart of Oregon's coastal dunes, a short distance from the beaches of the Pacific Coast. The Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area, known for its wind-sculpted dunes reaching up to 500 feet above sea level, spans the coast for 47 miles. To the east are forests that extend up the Oregon Coast Mountain Range.

Recreation:

Off-road vehicle riding is the ultimate attraction here and the Driftwood II OHV Trail is a great place to start. For added variety, beach goers can enjoy swimming, sunbathing, and watching sea birds at the nearby beach. If in season, whales may be spotted in the ocean as well.

Facilities:

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

Nearby Attractions:

The nearby Siltcoos Lake offers bass, cutthroat and rainbow trout fishing.
