Sandbeach Campground is ideal for off-road vehicle lovers with year-round access to nearly 1,100 acres of coastal sand dunes. The campground is part of the Sand Lake Recreation Area and home to the dune playground. The area is located along Oregon's North Coast, 15 miles southwest of Tillamook between Cape Lookout and Cape Kiwanda.

Natural Features:

The climate has strong marine influences with cool summers and moderate winters.

The Sand Lake Area includes 1,076 acres of open sand dunes, surrounded by forests, adjacent to the Pacific Ocean.


Off-road vehicle riding is the primary attraction for campers.

The nearby Sand Lake Estuary offers fishing, swimming, crabbing, kayaking, hiking and wildlife viewing. The near-natural state of the 900-acre estuary provides a home to many species of waterfowl.


Parking aprons are paved. Campground perks include drinking water, flush toilets, campfire rings and an off-road vehicle loading ramp.

Two adjacent campgrounds, East Dunes and West Winds, offer an additional 58 campsites (non-reservable).
