The small overnight campground offers RV and tent campsites, along with two beautiful one-room log cabins. These warm and cozy cabins sleep four comfortably. They also have covered porches which overlook picturesque Lake Marie. Two rustic yurts and six deluxe yurts are also available in the campground (the deluxe yurts feature restrooms, a kitchenette, TV/VCR and beds). Showers and restrooms are centrally located. This beautiful and quiet campground has yet to be discovered by crowds of camping enthusiasts. The park is centered in the stretch of towering sand dunes protected by the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area. These dunes, many of which reach heights of 500 feet or more, are ideal for the off-road enthusiast, or for the person who enjoys the magnificent wonders of nature. For more information about the dunes and the recreational opportunities offered, contact the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area visitor center in nearby Reedsport or call (541) 271-3611. The Umpqua River Lighthouse towers above the entrance to Winchester Bay. The 65-foot tower contains a distinctive lens which emits a red and white flash. The lighthouse and adjacent museum are operated and maintained by the Douglas County Parks Department. Tours are offered May 1 through September 30

A nice short hike, very pretty forest and lake. A must do if you're there

This is a short and sweet hike along the lake power packed with beauty. I love all of the signs that label the different trees, mosses, berries, etc. Many times I've been on the trail it's been foggy and overcast but it's still beautiful.

Lovely dog walk to stretch the legs on a trip south. Very well maintained, great for kids or anyone who is limited by inclines. There is also a yurt campground there, run by the State Parks that would be a great spot to stay and explore the rich hiking region that this area is.

Very easy hike around a small but beautiful lake. A short detour to the west takes you to an overview of the dunes. Perfect for kids.

My sister and I walked this trail, it was easy and a truly beautiful hike. Our church had a "Sunrise service" last spring and it took me nearly a year to get around to taking the hike, but it was great.
