Official Dates are for the weekend of May 15th, and the 16th. Some pilots, like Gabe Dinu and Nick Fulmor will be arriving on Wednesday to grab some early parking spots. The campsites are first-come, first-serve, so if you can arrive early, you probably should.
Pilot meetings on Thursday at 10am and Friday at 2pm. Contact Gabe at [email protected] to make your reservations.
Dinner will be provided on Saturday, and we will have live music. IF you are talented musically, bring your instruments as we will have a 6 channel soundboard for you to use.
Additional information about the area.
The Sand Lake Recreation Area is located along Oregon’s North Coast, 15 miles southwest of Tillamook, OR between Cape Lookout and Cape Kiwanda. It covers 1,076 acres of open sand dunes, surrounded by forests and adjacent to the Pacific Ocean. The Sand Lake Recreation Area is popular with OHV riders but offers a variety of recreational opportunities.
The Sand Lake Estuary, adjacent to the Sand Lake Recreation Area, provides opportunities for fishing, swimming, crabbing, kayaking, hiking, and wildlife viewing. The near-natural state of this 900-acre estuary provides a home to many species of waterfowl and access is available at Fisherman’s Day Use Area near the Sandbeach OHV Campground.
The sand dunes begin at the estuary and extend to the northeast about 3.5 miles. The dunes are surrounded on three sides by a coastal mixed-conifer forest and on the west by the Pacific Ocean. The dunes are an example of an extended parabolic dune system. Dune vegetation is mostly European beach grass and shore pine. Find out more about coastal dunes from our Geology of Dunes page.
The climate at Sand Lake has strong marine influences. Summers are cool and winters are moderate. Westerly winds predominate – from the northwest during the summer and from the southwest in the winter. These winds from the ocean bring heavy rainfall in the winter and fog in the summer.
