Description: Experience the Oregon Dunes and Family Fun Park at Sandland Adventures...
Experience the Oregon Dunes and Family Fun Park at Sandland Adventures. Offering tours of the dunes since 1987, our professional drivers will show you a great time while you travel across an impressive natural wonder of endless shifting sand. You will also experience unique tree islands, various wildlife and the spectacular Siuslaw River.  Choose an exhilarating dune ride on our Sand Rails or a relaxing tour on our Giant Dune Buggies.  Our one hour tours also include traveling down our Pacific Ocean Beach.  Large or small groups can be accommodated on either tour. For those who prefer speed and excitement, try either a half hour 10 mile tour or an hour 20 mile tour. These 7 to 10 passenger Long Travel Sand Rails have over 20” of suspension travel and plenty of horsepower to take you on an exhilarating ride. If you prefer a slower pace, enjoy our interpretive Giant Dune Buggy Tour with many picture opportunities. Informative, scenic and fun describes this one hour dune buggy tour covering approximately 8 miles of dunes and 2 miles of ocean beach. Climbing and descending through the most beautiful, impressive dunes will be an unforgettable experience.After your dune ride, you can bump and splash on our Bumper Boats, race on our Grand Prix style Go-Kart Track, play a round of Miniature Golf or take a ride on the Cloverline Railroad. We are located less than one mile south of Florence on Hwy 101.

We had an amazing experience. Our driver Kyle new exactly what he was doing, and went out of his way to make sure everyone was having a great time, Outstanding job. Loved the roller coaster like thrills and the smooth ride along the beach. Not for the faint of stomach.

We took the one hour Sand Rail Tour on a buggy with 4 other people and Frank our driver made it extremely fun. These buggies climb the hills at speeds of 35 - 45 MPH and on the flats he had it up to 65 MPH. You are strapped in and feel totally safe as you fly all around the... More

Walking the Dunes at Florence, Oregon would be time-consuming & strenuous. Choose the big Sand Dune Buggy! The driver provided a balance of stops and tours of various aspects of the dunes. His commentary was informative and interesting. The one- hour tour length was just right.

While visiting Oregon for college tours during unusually hot weather, we drove to the coast to get some relief. We stopped at Sandland Adventures in Florence. We didn't have a reservation (it was early Sunday afternoon) but they were able to accommodate us later in the day. We chose the 1/2 hour sandrail tour which is more of a thrill... More

My husband & I took 3 of our grandsons to ride the big Dune Buggy; the ride was almost full but not uncomfortable. The driver was great; he made it fun on the dunes & on the beach. We are anxious (my husband & I) to take the small buggy next time as it's a little bit more of a... More

As we completed our loop around the Pacific Northwest, we knew had to stop in the Sand Dune region of Oregon. Sandland Adventure was on that list! We made a reservation and paid over phone two nights before we were going to arrive. They were polite and courteous answering all of our questions we had before the trip. We chose... More

This is super fun for all ages (well if you have severe back problems, maybe not). The driver knew right where to go because once you are out there it all looks the same. I would have been lost for sure! Went fast, caught some air and had a great time. Going again this year when we travel to Oregon.... More

I've stopped here at least 4 times throughout the years and just did it again June 29th and as always they don't disappoint. Absolute Blast!!! Tips: you will get sand all over you (they provide goggles), you will be flying up and down hills at a high rate of speed, dress warm and preferably a hoodie with the draw string... More

We've been riding the Oregon Dunes since the 1970's, and Sandland has been a must stop for our family growing up, and now our grandchildren. On our June 17th visit, everyone from the baby to our 7 year-old granddaughter had a fantastic time. The ride operators (train, bumper boats and go karts) were all very friendly and helpful, making this... More

We weren't sure what to expect. Should we do the big buggy or the sand Rail? Should we go 30 or 60 minutes? Take the 1 hour sand rail ride and you won't be disappointed. It was like being at a theme park and the dunes are beautiful. Mike our driver and Frank the driver of the other sand rail... More
