Basically just head south from the parking lot. Keep riding until you see a gray crew cab Chevy Silverado next to a Raptor 5th wheel toy hauler and a big bearded badass dude holding a beer wearing a straw hat. Lmao!

I booked a site at Discovery Point.  One or two friends from Arizona are probably going to fly up and come out with me.  I've got 3 bikes so let's hope nothing breaks :).  Although right now i am planning on tent camping I'm trying to get more info on options if we want to camp in the dunes themselves.  A few questions:

1) From reading websites it says that alcohol is prohibited in the dunes, including camping areas. Is that really true or enforced? The reason I ask is The Norm said he's camping there and will be, "...the guy holding a beer..."  and I thought I'd ask. 

2) Are there porta-potty's in the dunes? I saw that if I was dune camping I'm supposed to bring a portable toilet - not a big deal if you are in an RV but we'd be tent camping which is a bit more challenging. 

3) Anybody ever use a trailer rental company for here that they like? Depending on price, might be interested in a place that delivers and sets up trailers. I used to do this in CA and assume something similar may exist here. 

Any and all advice/feedback on the above (or anything else) is welcome. I've never been here before but I've spent a lot of time in the sand (Glamis) so I'm pumped for this!

Drinking is allowed I think just in camp spots not out in the dunes I believe. Like discovery point etc.. to many ppl drink throughout the day, then get hurt. No porta johns in the dunes themselves, just at staging areas.
You might want reconsider camping out in the sand with a tent. Winchester is known to be "windy" and it's miserable camping in high wind.
As far as the trailer rentals, there is Luv2camp in reedsport and I think it was $650 for a week when I checked into it.

Brian, I have sand camped in the Winchester dunes a lot over the years and have gone from tent camping to toy hauler camping. In the early years you weren't required to bring a portable toilet (as far as I know) Now days it is a requirement and one I don't totally disagree with. Drinking in the dunes is prohibited and can be enforced. I have never been checked or had any issues while enjoying a tasty beer. I believe it is because I do not get drunk and go do something stupid (anymore lol) as I have a young impressionable son that wants to be just like dad. If you are a problem law enforcement will find you. If you were to stop by my camp it is garunteed that I will offer you a beer and a chair. Just as long as we enjoy ourselves in a responsible manner we will not have any trouble. Discovery point and halfmoon bay are two options if you don't have a portable toilet. If you need anything else at all pm me your number and I can text you or call. Thanks Loren


P.S.
A bucket with a toilet seat is a portable toilet in my opinion! Just put a garbage bag in the bucket lol

That would be great. My friends and I would like to meet up with other attendees - it's the whole reason we are coming this weekend. I will leave the time/place to those more familiar with the dunes here.

I think the last parking lot would be a great place to meet. Right out front is a huge flat area where we can assemble. I think Saturday or Sunday in the afternoon would be best. We can do a group ride and see all the best places at Winchester.
