Last Update: May 15, 2018
We are moving into summer here at Coral Pink Sand Dunes. The park is very busy with day use and reservations in the campground. Most of our campsites are reserved through the next several weeks, so things are pretty busy. If you plan to camp overnight, try and have a reservation ahead of time. The park and campground are open year round with water, dump station and showers available through the winter. Please note that we have no electric hookups in the campground. If you come to camp, please don’t bring more vehicles than your campsite will hold – we do not have an overflow parking area. Reservations can be made at 800-322-3770 or at www.stateparks.utah.gov.
Wildflower season has begun here at the park. It’s just getting started, but we have seen buckbrush, globemallow and silvery sophora have been seen so far.
Once again this year, we have sand boards (stand up) and sand sleds (sit down) available for rent here at the park. They are great fun on the dunes, although climbing the hill again afterwards can be a bit of a chore. The rental fee is $25 per board and you can get them at the Visitor Center.
If you go riding out in the dunes, please be aware and respectful of our Conservation Area boundaries for the Coral Pink Sand Dunes Tiger Beetle. Vehicles are not allowed in the home range of the beetles. The area is well marked by signs. By keeping the beetle population undisturbed by people, we are helping keep it off the Endangered Species list and helping us all enjoy the park. Please watch for the signs and keep vehicles out of the conservation areas.
For weather information, please check the forecasts for Kanab (84741) or Orderville (84758).
