Due to the recent influx of recreationists on the Siuslaw National Forest, Forest Service-operated campgrounds went to 100% online reservations as of August 3rd. This change allows us to continue providing camping opportunities to the public while still mitigating COVID concerns.
Visitors can make reservations online through this website (preferred), or via phone by calling the recreation.gov phone line at 877-444-6777. If you call this number, please be prepared for longer-than-usual wait times. Please note that the Siuslaw National Forest does not have any control over the recreation.gov phone line, so we ask you to please prepare by making reservations well in advance.
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.
Explore the waterways of the region, including Tahkenitch Lake and Siltcoos Lake.
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 along the Pacific coast. Fishing is available in the creek; Winter steelhead love the cold waters.
Normally, a campsite will be released to first-come, first-serve status if it is not occupied within the first 24 hours of the arrival time on the reservation. This campground does not have any first-come, first-serve sites available at this time; with this in mind, the 24-hour arrival policy is temporarily suspended until further notice.
