According to the web site it is being held a week before Veterans Day this year. Is this correct? If so probably going to cut down attendance for those of us with kids that need to be home Thursday night or have the holiday as a 3 day weekend.

Yes, you loose the extra day however there are less people on the dunes making it a safer weekend. When it has been held on Veterans day weekend the dunes sell out and it is packed to the limit. With less people you have less chances of accidents.

You are absolutely right, but if its a less busy weekend then there is less of a chance of an accident, especially with our slow cruisers out there.

Re-Post from the Friends of Oceano Dunes @friendsofoceanodunes

IMPORTANT IMPORTANT IMPORTANT

The Coastal Commission is about to ruin your Holidays at the Oceano Dunes. Summer vacations will be taking a big hit too!

If you have camping reservations for Thanksgiving and/or New Year’s or ANY time after July 11th 2019 at the ODSVRA I suggest you make a back-up plan. 300 camping reservations will be taken away starting July 11, 2019.
That’s right 300 campers will have to stay home. Who’s going to give up their reservation?

Of course all of this is subject to being able to cross the creek. Once the creek is flowing to the ocean, camping will be halted. At least the 700 who make it across the creek will get a quiet night’s sleep since night riding will be prohibited.

The Coastal Commission wants to:

“Users are not allowed to the southern side of the creek area when the creek may soon connect to the ocean”

“700 camping units per night as of July 11, 2019”

“All vehicular and OHV activity within ODSVRA shall be prohibited during nighttime hours (i.e., from one-hour after sunset and to one-hour before sunrise)”

The time is now to get involved!

1) Attend the Coastal Commission and speak up. ---This one is important
Date: Thursday, July 11th
Time: 9 am (show up early)
Location: Embassy Suites Hotel
333 Madonna Road, San Luis Obispo, CA 93405

2) Email your comments to the Commission at OceanoDunesReview@coastal.ca.gov because you know they’d LOVE to hear from you. In addition to your thoughts tell them they need to protect your rights for camping AND OHV use via the Coastal Act.

3) Give ‘em a ring at (831) 427-4863

4) Even send a fax (831) 427-4877

Let State Parks know what you think too! It's time Parks stops rolling over and stands their ground. You can email Parks here:
