  • Sand Lake Campground Closure
    The East Dunes Campground within the Sand Lake Recreation Area will be closed Monday, July 6, until mid-September while it undergoes expansion.
    The expansion project will add 20 sites to the north end of the East Dunes Camping Area, and replaces the same number of sites from the Sandbeach Campground which were washed away from high waves during winter storms in 2011 and 2012.
    Travelers to the Sand Lake Recreation Area should expect some traffic congestion as construction equipment moves in and out of the area. Temporary traffic signage will be set up to facilitate the flow of traffic.
    For more information, contact the Forest Service-Hebo Ranger Station at (503) 392-5100.
  • Where to Ride
    Oregon has a diverse range of OHV riding opportunities, from the High Desert to the Coast Range and everything in between. Check with the land manager for riding area information before you head out.

    With the Forest Service's Travel Management rule, it is imperative you contact the appropriate Forest Service office to obtain a Motor Vehicle Use Map (MVUM) to know where you can legally ride on Forest Service lands.

  • Side-by-side input needed



    COHVOPS (Combined OHV Operations) has recently been very active identifying and providing additional Class IV ATV (Side-by-side) trail opportunities in Central Oregon. User input has played a critical role in this process, and the agency continues to seek input from Class IV users to identify, clear, and sign new routes, as well as volunteer for trail work.  For more information, email Brent Jenkins at cbjenkins@fs.fed.us
