No Reservations

In the morning we saw a bald eagle fly in front of a rainbow over the ocean.

Not technically a campground, but you can sleep here on the beach if you tuck away into the dunes. There are no bathrooms and no showers. My partner and I rode bikes out to the South Jetty near Florence and set a…

Close to beach and spacious

Visited here in January so had the place to ourselves at night. Off roaders during the day. Very soft sand getting to the dispersed camp sites.

About This Campground

Overview

South Jetty, located less than two miles south of Florence, is an ideal camping area for off-road vehicle enthusiasts. Visitors can camp, ride the dunes, and take in memorable views of the Pacific Ocean. Several designated off-road vehicle routes and an open riding area are present to the south of South Jetty Road.

South Jetty is located within the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area (ODNRA). The ODNRA contains the largest expanse of coastal sand dunes in North America.

**Please be aware: Paving and road realignment projects will be occurring on South Jetty road in late summer and early fall 2021. During this time, access to the South Jetty staging area, Goosepasture staging area, and South Jetty crab dock will be temporarily restricted. Please plan accordingly and please call 541-271-6000 for more information. This notice will be updated as project dates are finalized.

Recreation

Off-road vehicle riding is the largest attraction here, with designated routes and miles of open riding areas on the sand. From the nearby South Jetty Day-Use Area, hikers can enjoy miles of open beach, with opportunities to view sea birds and explore dune formations. The non-motorized section of beach is separate from the off-road vehicle area. During certain times of year, whales may be spotted in the ocean.

Facilities

Sites can only be accessed by 4X4 vehicles. No water is available so campers should bring an ample amount. Campsites are primitive and all campers must bring their own portable toilets and fire pans.

Standard campsites fit 5 vehicles and up to 20 people. The group campsite fits 10 vehicles and up to 40 people. Within each campsite, all vehicles and tents must be positioned within 150 feet of the campsite marker post. Campsites are available year-round (by reservation only) and reservations may fill up quickly during peak summer season.

Natural Features

Campsites are located directly on the sand and are dispersed amongst the dunes. The nearby dunefield is known for its wind-sculpted sand dunes towering up to 500 feet above sea level.

Nearby Attractions

South Jetty is just south of Florence, which is a full service community featuring restaurants, shops, and other activities. Additional hiking, beachcombing, and off-road vehicle riding opportunities are available in the Siltcoos Recreation Area, which is 6 miles south of South Jetty Road. For boating and fishing, visit Siltcoos Lake, Carter Lake, or Sutton Lake.
