A little something for everyone

Winchester Bay is a tiny town, mostly servicing the harbor and the small commercial fishing fleet. But it's also an access point to the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area. So it draws non-sailors too. As a result, there are several camping options clustered closely together.

As I mentioned in a previous post, I'm staying in one of the dry camping areas in Salmon Harbor Marina (see the red X). You can stay all along the jetty and in the two perpendicular areas. It's good if you're there for the boats and/or prefer camping on pavement.

If you want to be able to pitch a tent, be next to trees, build big fires and have plenty of room for your ATVs and dune buggies, then there are the two parts of Windy Cove Campground.

And if you want full hookups for your RV and don't want to mix with the riffraff, there's Winchester Bay RV Resort on the other jetty.

These are just the three options that are side by side. There are others nearby. Take your pick.
