Upcoming public check point at Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area to be relocated to 10 mile OHV Route
Reedsport, OR – The previously scheduled OHV public check point at Umpqua Riding Area will now be held at 10 mile OHV Route from 11am – 1pm.
Forest Service officials are reminding riders that the purpose of the checkpoints is to verify compliance with existing OHV regulations. Forest Protection Officers and Law Enforcement Officers will be issuing citations for OHV users who do not comply with sound limits and other off-road regulations such as use of safety flags, OHV permit stickers and OHV safety education cards.
The Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area (ODNRA) is managed for multiple recreational uses, both motorized and non-motorized. Due to its unique topography, varied recreational uses and proximity to residential areas, currently a 93 decibel sound limit is applied to all OHVs within the ODNRA.
