Do not come here unless you're a dune buggy fanatic. Seriously. I booked a week thinking the sand would be fun for my dog, but I am completely surrounded by loud motors, music, and constant revving of engines. The site would be fine if it wasn't completely exposed to the whole campground. Zero privacy, very loud, but also very beautiful. Update: left after 1 night. For some reason people like to turn on their massive ATVs and just sit in them... My dog wouldn't leave the truck so we left. Never coming back.
It's a nice little campground. Especially for anybody that wants access to the Oregon dunes recreational area. Most of the camping spots have room for your RV/camper and two vehicles. A lot of the campers have UTV side by sides, ATVs, sand rails, and dune buggies. You can drive right off the blacktop into the dunes. There's also a boat launch for small boats.
We've stayed at Spinreel campground several times this year and we had pleasant experiences every time. It IS a campground close to the dunes and close to an ATV rental/tour business so you have to expect the noise of the ATVs. People like to go out on night rides, so you will have engine noise at night too. The camp host, Christy is really nice and she keeps the grounds and bathrooms clean and she warns campers about potential dangers on the dunes, like when there are razorbacks. We love the dunes and really like the convenience of Spinreel campground. The sites have room for both vehicle and trailer. I've only had good experiences from other campers.They've all been respectful.
This is a great camp ground if you want to go on the dunes. Other than that it is crammed and there is not much to do outside of the dunes. Also the main bathroom was closed the three days I was there so we had to walk to the parking lot bathroom by the entrance to the dunes.
Was a nice place kinda small camp spots if you tent but overall would go back no problem. Host was extremely nice/friendly to us which were very thankful for. Super clean restrooms that were always stocked which is refreshing based off the norm for dunes campgrounds.
