Where to stay near or on Sand Dunes with ATVs

Are there any hotels or private homes on or near the beach area to ride our ATV's.. Also pet friendly? We are looking to just ride to the dunes on our ATV's would be our first choice.

We stayed at the Park Motel in Florence last week for one night. we were pulling a pop-up, and they had nice room to park it. They had several cabins. Some family was having a reunion. Looked like good place for a larger group. They were outside visiting.

But don't believe you could ride ATVs to Dunes. Sure Park Motel could tell you.

The Oregon Dunes NRA is federally owned, thus there are no motels/hotels or private homes on the dunes. There MAY be some private homes available for rent somewhere along the 42 miles that are adjacent, but I am not personnaly aware of any. Compounding this is the USFS has implemented "noise buffers" near most residential developments at resident's requests, meaning, even if a home is adjacent, it may not have direct access.

Edit: It is about 1.5 miles from the Park Motel to the South Jetty Stagging area.

If you haven't been in the Oregon Dunes before, please be careful. This isn't your ordinary off-road jaunt. We've already had more than our share of fatalities in our parks and forests and on our rivers this summer. Hope we don't read about you on the front pages.

These are not in Florence, but in other "dunes" towns. Some might work:

If you had an RV or a tent, Winchester Bay is ATV Heaven! There are several campgrounds where you can easily ride to the dunes in a special "ATV lane" along the road.. The streets *and* dunes are patrolled by Sheriffs officers to keep everybody well mannered :-)

Check out Honeyman Oregon state park. There is lots of camping sites plus a few yurts if you don't like tent or RV camping. Much cheaper than a motel. There is also one of the camping loops set aside for just ATV folks. http://www.oregonstateparks.org/park_134.php
