2018 UTV Takeover at Oregon Dunes

2018 UTV Takeover Oregon Dunes

By Jon Crowley

UTV Takeover has grown to several different events across the United States, but it all started back in the Oregon Dunes at Boxcar Hill Campground. Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area is made up of three different dune complexes, and Boxcar Hill is part of the southernmost dune which is most often referred to as Coos Bay. The other two dunes are Winchester bay and Florence and it is worth noting that you cannot drive off-road between these dunes.

If you aren’t familiar with this area, take a look over our Virtual Tour of the Coos Bay Dunes:

2018 marks the third year for UTV Takeover, and what makes this dune event unique is that it is free to attend. There is a charge for camping, but all activities are free.
