​New Maps

The major Sand Entrance Staging Areas have new information boards with maps of the adjacent riding area.

These maps show the additional designated trails and open areas established by Designated Routes Project for Management Area 10 (C). 

Interactive, GPS-enabled Maps
The designated routes maps are available below as geo-referenced PDF maps. When viewed on your GPS-enabled mobile device with the right app (like PDF Maps from Avenza), these maps will identify your location in reference to areas marked on the map as open or closed.

Without an app that can read geo-referenced PDF maps, the maps below can be used as regular static maps.

You can upload the PDF into your mobile device (smartphone or tablet) and then, using an app like PDF Maps from Avenza, you can use your device's built-in GPS to track your location on the map.
What are geo-referenced PDFs and how do I use them?

​Know the regulations before you arrive – it’s your responsibility.

The State of Oregon establishes and administers OHV permits and regulations. State, County and Forest Service law enforcement personnel patrol both the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area and the Sand Lake Recreation Area on a regular basis.


​Find out how the 2009 changes to OHV riding in Oregon affect you at www.oregonOHV.org or go directly to www.rideATVoregon.org to get your required ATV Safety Education Card.

You can find more information, including all the Rules for Riding, lists of OHV permit vendors, and vehicle class definitions on the Oregon State Parks website (http://www.oregonohv.org/)or by calling Oregon Parks and Recreation Department information center at 1.800.551.6949.

Off Highway Vehicle Permits

An OHV permit issued by the State of Oregon is required if you want to operate your motorized vehicle on public land and even then, the land must be specifically designated for OHV use. On the Siuslaw National Forest, there are two areas that are designated OHV riding areas:

Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area

Wondering if your off road vehicle permit from another state is valid in Oregon?
See "Permits from Other States" information on the Oregon State Parkswebsite (http://www.oregonohv.org/) for a list of states that have reciprocity with Oregon.

Remember! In addition to the OHV permit issued by the State of Oregon for your vehicle, the Siuslaw National Forest also requires recreation permits for most campgrounds and day use staging areas. Check the specific area where you will be riding for details.

Curfew

Remeber! The open dunes at Coos Bay are only open for riding between the hours of 6:00 am and 12:00 am (midnight).  Make sure to calculate your rides correctly and be back to camp by midnight.  Keeping the dunes safe and following the rules will help keep them open for years to come.


Check the Motor Vehicle Use Map

The Siuslaw National Forest Motor Vehicle Use Map displays National Forest System routes (roads and trails) and areas that are open to motorized travel. Designated motor vehicle roads, motorized trails and motorized cross country travel areas are outlined in these maps.

Sound Levels

Increased OHV use and the popularity of aftermarket mufflers means more noise. Noise buffers are located between residential and recreational riding areas, and are closed to motorized travel. Vehicle sound is measured by a decibel meter positioned 20 inches and 45 degrees from the exhaust outlet. Have your vehicle checked! Forest personnel are equipped to provide sound checks. Vehicles operating over the decibel limit are subject to citation.
Decibel limit for Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area is 93 decibels.
Find out more about noise limits and sound tests for the Oregon Dunes .

Decibel limit for Sand Lake Recreation area is 97 decibels.

Alcohol Ban

Possession of alcohol is prohibited in Off Highway Vehicle (OHV) riding areas outside of developed sites.

Details about the Alcohol Ban in OHV Riding Areas

Spark Arresters

Spark arresters are part of the muffler system and are required nation-wide on National Forest lands.

Some of the most common infractions on the open sand are:

Helmets:
Under age 18 without helmet (with chinstrap)
