Camp Westwind – Departure Planning
Arrival Time, Parking & Hiking In
Camp Westwind is a two+ hour drive from Portland. Plan to arrive at Westwind from 3-5 p.m. on your arrival day. FOR SAFETY REASONS WE CANNOT ACCOMMODATE ARRIVALS AFTER 5 P.M. Hiking an unfamiliar trail in the dark can be dangerous. Arrive in time to unload all your gear and park your vehicle. The Westwind truck will be in the parking lot and ready to transport your personal gear to camp while you and your family hike into the camp.
Please enter 7500 N. Fraser Road, Otis, Or, 97368 into your GPS/Google Maps. Westwind is 90 miles southwest of Portland, just north of Lincoln City, at the mouth of the Sandy River. GPS will take you to a Forestry day use area. You’ll see a restroom on your right and a green gate that has a road closed sign — you will continue to drive past that green gate onto the 1-way/10mph/dirt road until you get to the Westwind black gate. The black gate will be open from 3-5 p.m. for your arrival. Once the gate is open, you will continue to follow the dirt road for approximately 1/2 mile. You will pass the Beaver Pond on your left, then you will pass the Farmhouse on your right, lastly you will pass the house on your left and arrive at orange cones — where you will make a right into the parking area. The luggage truck and Westwind Staff will be waiting for you there.
