Hauser Sand Camping

Siuslaw National Forest

Hauser offers 25 dispersed campsites in the heart of the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area. Campsites sit directly on the sand, with designated off-road vehicle trails and open riding areas nearby. The location is also close to the Pacific Ocean beach and a variety of small lakes.

Standard sites can accommodate 5 vehicles and up to 20 people. The group campsites can accommodate 10 vehicles and 40 people. Sites can only be accessed by 4X4 vehicles via soft sand routes. Campsites are available and reservations are required year-round; reservations may fill up quickly during peak summer season. 

No water is available so campers should bring an ample amount. Campsites are primitive and all campers must bring portable toilets and fire pans. Camp only within designated sites and within 150 feet of the site marker. 

Seasonal rainfall may affect campsites. Contact the Oregon Dunes Visitor Center for seasonal information.

Natural Features

Campsites are located directly on the soft sand within the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area. The dunefield features tall and open dunes surrounded by coastal forest. The Pacific Ocean lies to the west of the campsites. To the north and south, visitors can find many small lakes and ponds, including Beale Lake. A wide variety of wildlife species calls this area home. 

Nearby Attractions

Head south to Coos Bay, a picturesque inlet where the Coos River flows into the Pacific Ocean. The scenic waterway provides an excellent habitat for sea birds.


Hauser is an outstanding destination for off-road vehicle enthusiasts. Thrillseekers have the opportunity to ride on designated routes like the Hauser Beach Sand Route, the Bark Sand Route, and the Coast Guard Sand Route. Off-road riders can also explore the open riding zones, which feature the tallest dunes and widest vistas. 

Additionally, the Pacific beaches are just a short ride from the camping area, with the Hauser Beach and Saunders off-road vehicle routes leading riders through the forest to the ocean. This area is also a great place for wildlife viewing.
