Last Update: February 14, 2018
We finally got a bit of snow at the park, but much of it has melted. Presidents Day weekend is coming up and many of the campsites are reserved for the weekend, so check for availability before coming. 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.
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).
