John Dellenback Dunes Trail. I like getting out on the sand, but the idea of slogging through 2.7 miles of it to what is undoubtedly a gorgeous, secluded beach, then the same back, has just never appealed to me. On the other hand, I've stayed at Eel Creek Campground a few times- it's much closer to the dunes than the day use area, and like many coast campgrounds, the dense shrubbery gives each site a sense of seclusion and isolation. Some sites back right onto the dunes. I would have no hesitation in recommending this spot for an overnighter, if you're a camping type.
