BeachExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • There are two miles of sand dunes in between the park and the ocean, interpretive and nature programs, and if you're a watersports enthusiast, this is a great place to play.
  • The park has two freshwater lakes: Cleawox and Woahink. Cleawox is bordered by a 150-foot-high dune; Woahink has an underwater park.
  • In Discovery Season, October through April, visitors can access Oregon Dunes National Recreation Center right from the park campground's H Loop.
The park draws divers, windsurfers, and boaters of all kinds. Kids at heart will get a kick out of sliding down the monster sand dune.
