This site is the southernmost end of a series of sand dunes extending along the Oregon coastline from Florence to Coos Bay. The ever-changing habitat is home to a wide variety of mammals and birds, including some threatened and endangered species. Strolling along the beach, visitors may glimpse an osprey diving for fish or whales spouting offshore. A full-sized boat ramp is open for public use at no charge.
From US Hwy 101, just north of North Bend, OR, follow signs to Horsfall Beach in the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area. Bear right over the second set of RR tracks and stay on Transpacific Parkway. Six miles will bring you to the only developed area, a boat ramp with parking area, restrooms, and more information. The Physical Address is listed as 3031 Transpacific Lane North Bend, OR 97459
