Bluebill Campground Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area

Another reason I don't like to make campground reservations! We were aware that Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area is very popular with OHV riders but decided that an overnight stay in the middle of the week would be okay. Our first choice was Horsfall Campground. The campgrounds are all in Siuslaw National Forest so Senior and Access Passes are good for admission and camping.

We pulled in to the campground (just a parking lot) and found it packed with huge toy haulers, cargo trailers, and ATVs. Fortunately the campground host realized that we were out of place and recommended Bluebill Campground which is about a mile farther down the road. No ATVs allowed and hardly any campers so we had a very quiet night.

None of the campsites are designated as accessible but most are usable with paved parking pads that have a wider section where a wheelchair lift could be deployed. Site # 14 is accessible because the pavement extends under the table and fire ring however it doesn't meet the strict national forest guidelines so it's not designated as accessible. Campground  43.45007, -124.26201
