Overview

Overview

Horsfall Sand Camping is home to the largest riding area in the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area. Adventure seekers can experience the thrill of riding through vast open dunes or meandering through designated sand routes surrounded by shore pine, waxmyrtle, huckleberry, and salal. To top off the experience, they can pitch a tent on the soft coastal sand and stay overnight.

The tops of dunes provide prime views of the Pacific Coast to the west and the foothills of the Oregon Coast Range to the east.

Natural Features:

The dispersed camping area is on the sand in the southern edge of the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area, known for its wind-sculpted sand dunes towering to 500 feet above sea level.

The campground sits near several watering holes, including Horsfall Lake, Bluebill Lake and Jordan Cove, which is a section of Coos Bay.

Coyote, black bear, elk, mink, porcupine and otter are just a few of the species that have been tracked on the Oregon Dunes.

Recreation:

Horsfall ultimately attracts off-road vehicle enthusiasts. Thrillseekers have a choice of riding on designated routes like the Bark Sand Route and Bull Run Sand Route, or cruising in the open riding sections.

Anglers can fish in Jordan Cove, the portion of Coos Bay that is nearest the campsites. Hikers can access the nearby Bluebill Trailhead for a journey by foot to the Pacific beach.

Facilities:

Access to campsites is by 4x4 vehicles only via soft sand routes. Sites are rustic and no toilets or campfire pits are available. Portable toilets and fire pans are highly recommended.

Individual sites are identified by numbered posts. Each site accommodates up to 5 vehicles and 20 campers for tent camping. Three group sites accommodate 40 people and 10 vehicles.

Nearby Attractions:

Coos Bay, a picturesque inlet where the Coos River flows into the Pacific Ocean, is nearby. The waterway is about 3 miles wide and 10 miles long, creating a flourishing habitat for sea birds.
