Experience the Oregon Dunes and Family Fun Park at Sandland Adventures....

Experience the Oregon Dunes and Family Fun Park at Sandland Adventures. Offering tours of the dunes since 1987, our professional drivers will show you a great time while you travel across an impressive natural wonder of endless shifting sand. You will also experience unique tree islands, various wildlife and the spectacular Siuslaw River.  Choose an exhilarating dune ride on our Sand Rails or a relaxing tour on our Giant Dune Buggies.  Our one hour tours also include traveling down our Pacific Ocean Beach.  Large or small groups can be accommodated on either tour. For those who prefer speed and excitement, try either a half hour 10 mile tour or an hour 20 mile tour. These 7 to 10 passenger Long Travel Sand Rails have over 20” of suspension travel and plenty of horsepower to take you on an exhilarating ride. If you prefer a slower pace, enjoy our interpretive Giant Dune Buggy Tour with many picture opportunities. Informative, scenic and fun describes this one hour dune buggy tour covering approximately 8 miles of dunes and 2 miles of ocean beach. Climbing and descending through the most beautiful, impressive dunes will be an unforgettable experience.After your dune ride, you can bump and splash on our Bumper Boats, race on our Grand Prix style Go-Kart Track, play a round of Miniature Golf or take a ride on the Cloverline Railroad. We are located less than one mile south of Florence on Hwy 101.

Epic, in the words of my 8 year old son who sat as co-pilot! Alex, our driver, must spend all his spare time trying to figure out how to scare the crap out of the screaming mom, because that's what he did, we scaled vertical sand walls at angles I've never even been on roller coasters, floored it through every...

We saw the sign and thought we would give it a try. We all had a lot of fun with the experienced driver and the weather was perfect, This is one of those things that you do with your kids that they won't forget. Our grandkids had a great time.

Best way to see the Oregon Dunes. Get ready to have sand everywhere, even inside your underwear. Rental ATV's and guided rides are available. Everyone should do this at least once.

We rode the giant buggy (you know, the one with kids and seniors) and had a great time going around the fine white sand dunes. There were other types of buggies, ATV's and vehicles and they all seemed to be having a good time as well. Fun activity for families. There are a few dips and climbs - might make... More

I rode the dunes last year with my son and a some of his classmates on a school field trip. We had a blast going over the dunes and bumps. If you decide to ride in one of their vehicles,do so on a low wind day,as the sand tends to blow quite a bit.

We took our family here for Dune adventure. It was expensive but so worth it. Our family of six ranging in ages 34-2 was all able to attend and was the most fun we have ever had at the coast. The dunes are fun and even better when you have an experienced driver showing you them. We also did the... More

We had a great tour out on the dunes with Sand Land! It was cold (November) but we all bundled up and stayed warm! The kids loved the bumps and big down hill roller coaster like hills while adults loved leaning about the dunes. Keep your eyes open for wildlife. We saw deer and sea lions!

These guys are, in my opinion, the best dune adventure company in Oregon. I visited a couple of years ago, and made a trip this year specifically to visit again. The staff are excellent, and the Sandrail (the fast, more fun buggy) is just a blast! They offer 1/2 or 1 hour tours, which are basically an adrenaline-filled lowered buggy... More
