We want to head to the OR dunes by North bend in July but Riley Ranch, our favorite place to stay is all booked up? What are the other campgrounds there like? Thanks.

Thanks Dunepilot! In the Winchester Bay area what is your favorite place to stay?
Sure thing!

I don't usually stay in Winchester, as I'm a member of the IOOF and stay in Florence with day trips to Coos and Winchester. However, when I do stay, I prefer, to some extent, Windy Cove.
Douglas County Oregon e-Government - Parks Dept.

But I'm not a fan of driving on the quasi-paved/gravel shoulder to get to the dunes as it tears up the paddles.

There a couple of other alternatives, Discovery Point and Half-Moon Bay, which provide a more direct and less tire damaging route to the dunes.

Unfortunately, Douglas County continues to ignore the need for capitol improvements to Half-Moon to significantly improve the drainage, due to frequent flooding. It's not much fun to have to wade thru a shallow lake to get to your machine, truck or trailer.

Agreed, however Riley is a great place; was part of the group that helped build the cabins and the picnic tables.

The original plan, at Riley, was to have sand covered drive from the campground to the bridge, then the sand would begin again once you crossed the bridge. Unfortunately, the sand driveway, prior to the bridge, was not feasible.

Still, they could have used smaller gravel vs the 4 minus they have now.
