Sand Lake for mild/moderate sand fun. You have to pay a park fee and I think you need an OHV sticker. The park fee is like $5 for the day.

OHV stickers are $10 plus a .50 cent vendor fee :-) BUT if you have the California off road pass I do believe Oregon recognized it.

There are several places you can drive on the Beach in Oregon and some of them are Dunes while others are just flat stretches. What part of Oregon will you be visiting north or south?

You can drive on the beach at pacific city that's by sand lake but you won't have to air down if you go to pacific city, if you are hungry and drive to Newport make sure you go through old town and stop at Local Ocean they have some great food.

So you plan to be here for a week.....
Lots of places and things to see here....Kinda give us a clue what your interests are or what your into...
Just remember , the closer you get to the Portland Area (northern coast area from Newport to Astoria) the more people your going to run into. You may wish to only go half way up the coast and cut East to the Valley for the bridges and on over the mountains to the central part of the state and make a loop back to Cal....
Get a good road map, lots of the covered bridges are marked. "BH"
