I went and played at Winchester Bay last week. I didn't do a ton of research, but you can't drive on the beach anymore because of the snowy plover. (May - September) Bummer.
It was fun for about 2 days, loved the beach grass trails and the boundary trail at the south end.
Dunefest looks like a fun time - but I'm less inclined to go to huge events.
Riding through the sand in a forest was kick ass, I'll definitely go back, but all the closures make it less fun for us noobs. I'm sure the die-hards have fun anyway because they have history and social circles.
