These Dunes are amazing. Steep, tall, majestic, sharp, untouched, isolated are a few words to describe them. Unlike the eureka dues these have few visitors and are not marked tracked with hoards of people. During our 3 hour visit to the top only two other people where anywhere near the dunes. The result are untracked dunes with fantastic colorful backdrop... More

I have to believe the authorities leave the roads in such bad condition to limit who accesses the Dunes. Survive the 1-2 hour journey and you'll be thankful. The Dunes are magnificent. So calm, a zen experience. A memorable adventure. The Dunes are a lot closer from the campsite than you realise, What looks to be a 1 hour plus... More

If you are tired with tourists and wanting to have a peaceful moments, you should consider to visit. The dunes are beautiful and way less visited than the famous parts of DV, Badwater for example. You can enjoy the view from the parking area or walk a little bit or climb to the top. Please keep in your mind, it's... More

Visited the dunes to photograph the endemic and Federally Threatened Eureka Dunes Evening Primrose (Oenothera californica ssp eurekensis). Two other endemic plant species are known only from these dunes. Entering Death Valley National Park from Big Pine one drives on a paved road for about 37 miles through a beautiful area, especially in the spring when the wildflowers are blooming.... More

Very scenic stop and the dunes are amazing. Coming from the south the concept of sand dunes in USA are intriguing. Definitely worth the Tim and effort to experience. Adequate parking.

Headed to Death Valley over President's Day weekend to see the wild flowers but feared the crowds so went to Eureka Duns 1st. So glad I did. Came in from Big Pine. Much better road than from the main park. After turning off Big Pine/Death Valley road, the road has some rougher spots with larger rocks that I went slower... More

We went via death valley down the gravel road for 35 miles instead of the otherside - which was how we exited and will go the next time! But it is so worth it - so remote, so quite and the dunes are fabulous!

We just came back from there. First off, the latest news. if you coming from HWY-395, the road to the main Death Valley park is closed at Crater, so Eureka Dunes is pretty much the only place you can get to from the north. The road to the dunes is well maintained and graded, so we saw even people on... More
