If you want to explore the windswept sandy beaches of the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area, look no further than a Reedsport vacation rental along the Southern Oregon Coast. Sitting on the beautifully scenic spot where the Umpqua River flows into the Pacific, Reedsport is an ideal destination for outdoors lovers of all kinds.
Between the Umpqua River, inland lakes, and (of course) the ocean, Reedsport is a fisherman's dream. Depending on the season, cast your line for salmon, steelhead, bass, trout, bluegill, or sturgeon. On the coast itself, clamming and crabbing are popular pastimes. The surrounding area is teeming with gorgeous hikes and wildlife watching opportunities.
Of course, Reedsport is most famous for its windswept dunes. The Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area stretches for more then 40 miles, from Florence to the north to Coos Bay to the south - and Reedsport is located right in the middle. From hikes to dune buggy rides to sand boarding (think surfing, but on the sand), there are no shortage of ways to experience the singular beauty and adventure of the dunes. Another popular destination is the iconic lighthouse perched near the mouth of the Umpqua River.
Reedsport proper has a small but high-quality selection of dining options, from elk burgers and onion rings at the locally beloved Harbor Light Family Restaurant to freshly made doughnuts at the Sugar Shack Bakery. For rainy day entertainment, visit the award-winning Umpqua Discover Center, or head 30 minutes north to the handful of shops and galleries in lovely Florence, along with a supermarket for stocking up on groceries. For an Oregon Coast vacation rental to call home while you explore the wild and scenic Southern Oregon Coast, consider one of our charming Reedsport getaways in this peaceful, naturally stunning scenic area.
