Dunes City

Dunes City is the perfect mix of sand and water. Siltcoos Lake and Woahink Lake lay surrounded by miles of Oregon's rolling sand dunes

Two off road vehicles full of adventurous people on the Oregon Dunes.


  • Set up basecamp at the foot of the sand dunes near freshwater lakes.
  • Meander back to the simpler days in the Historic Westlake District. 
  • Stargaze from the tranquil dunes, blanketed in unbroken darkness.
  • Watch wildlife and birds in the silty marshes.
  • Glide along canoe trails, tread wooded paths or meander wide-open beaches.
  • Plunge down 500-foot sandbanks on an ATV or dune buggy!
  • Go wild pulling up trophy-size fish from verdant coastal lakes.


Dunes City is six miles south of Florence. A few restaurants and retail shops make up the crux of the community. There are motels, RV parks and campgrounds. For additional local assistance contact Dunes City visitor information.
