From the months of May-Sept highs can get up to upper 90’s and even low 100’s. Bring plenty of water, sun screen, hat, etc. to protect yourself from the elements. If it is 100 degrees outside the sand can be up to 140 degrees. Always check local forecast, there are not refunds due to weather.
From months Oct-April can bring all types of weather. It can be sunny and warm or snowy and cold. Bring proper clothing for a variety of weather. Always check local forecasts, there are no refunds due to weather.
Please note, there are no electric hookups in the old campground (sites 1-22). The new campground has water and electricity available (sites 23-34). 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 utahstateparks.reserveamerica.com.
Once again this year, we have sand boards (stand-up) and sand sleds (sit-down) available for rent at the park on a first-come first-serve basis. 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 they are available at the Visitor Center/Entrance Booth.
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 tiger 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).
