Spinreel Area Sand Camping
The Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area, under the administration of the Siuslaw National Forest, provides a number of sand camping opportunities in the Spinreel area south of Lakeside. Most of these are reached from a road heading west off the old Highway 101, now called Spinreel Road. A few are closer to Saunders Lake.
All of the sites in the Spinreel area are considered remote and are recommended only for tenting. Persons coming in RVs or campers or pulling trailers should use the regular Spinreel Campground.
