NW Oregon Campsites for RV Boondocking

These are the NW Oregon Campsites we've occupied in our RV Boondocking Travels.

The Arbitrary lines I've drawn to mark off the Southern border of the NW Quarter of the state is an East/West line through Florence on the coast and Ontario.

The eastern boundary is a line from Biggs on the Columbia through Prineville.

Directions: Take Hwy 101/Pacific Coast Hwy. south out of Tillamook. Approximately 10.5 miles turn right/West onto Sandlake Rd. You should see signs for Pacific City.

Pass the Cape Lookout turn off and continue on Sandlake Rd. to Galloway road. Turn right/west on Galloway road just south of the Sandlake Grocery.

Follow that for a little over two miles. The turn off will be on your left.

If you miss it you will quickly come to a parking lot for the dunes area on your right. Go back approximately 1/4 mile to the campground turnoff. When you're on the correct road the campground entrance will be on your right.

Comments: This is a Popular NW Oregon Campsites OHV area with campground, dune and beach access. Adjacent to large sand dune area. It was perfect for our stay in late October. OHV use was light then and we had a huge amount of Beach to walk, virtually alone. The area gets Heavy use from OHV's riding the dunes during the summer, weekends and holidays.
