We love the place. Hike around. Take pictures. Beautiful but it can get scary. We go off season. It's easy to wander off and not see anybody else.

There are several locations for access. The one just labeled "Oregon Dunes" is hiking only, and there are other hiking trails marked as well. Remember to pack water especially if it is hot.

While it appears to be an Oregon State Park, it's actual the US Forest Service, and you will need either one of their permits or a parking pass to visit.

Very interesting place. Dunes are generally associated with hot a deserty places, not with rainy Oregon. But here they are.
I'm not a big fan of the noise ATV experiences. However, Oregon Dunes are large enough to provide space for some lovely hikes. You get the experience of the dunes without the problem with heat.

I stumbled across the Oregon Dunes over twenty years ago and try to make it back at least once every couple of years. It's a fantastic place and hard to describe - you just have to visit. I also recommend taking some of the smaller roads inland as you will discover some amazing places along your journey.

Want natural Dunes? Florence, OR has them. They are not only really neat to see, but to climb, sandboard or atv ride. They are the place for fun!
