Natural Features

Spinreel Campground is located in the heart of the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area, near a large section of open dunes. The towering dunes provide expansive vistas of the nearby terrain, and the dune field is surrounded by coastal forest.

The Pacific Ocean lies a short distance to the west. Tenmile Creek begins at Tenmile Lake, flows past the campground, and empties into the Pacific Ocean. 

Nearby Attractions

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

Off-road vehicle riders can check out other nearby riding opportunities in the Hauser and Horsfall areas. 

Recreation

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.

Fishing and boating opportunities are also available in Tenmile Creek and Tenmile Lake.
