This attraction is easy to access, and interesting as well. It is right off the main road. We just explored the area briefly, but you could pay a longer visit and hike around the dunes. Definitely worth a stop.

Beautiful place and it makes one feel quite small. You can walk a long time and will have more dunes to cover. Challenge walking in the soft sand but well worth the effort. Be on the watch for critters of all sorts. Climb the tallest dunes for the 360 degree view of the mountains!

The sand dunes were my kids favorite part of the day spent at DV. Temps were still cool(high of 81) so we were able to comfortably walk around the sand dunes. It was a cool contrast from one side of the park to the other.

Sand Dunes in the middle of no where and they seem to continue forever. We had a blast exploring these, got to see lizard and snake tracks through out the dunes also. If you take a walk to either side of the main path (well footprints) its very cool to just have the wide vast land of sand and no... More

Must have enough time to walk and explore. I was on a tour so we didn't have time to walk around. Nevertheless, it was beautiful to look at and it makes one wonder how those dunes were formed. I didn't walk too far from the parking lot because it was too hot for me. I hope to be able to... More

Golly jeepers this place is hot. We went at 9:30 in the morning, and by the time we got out to the tall dunes and back to the car it was tough going in the blindingly bright sun and extreme heat. Be careful, carry extra water. I recommend a dawn approach, wait for the sunrise then grab some photos with... More

This is definitely a fun place to check out. Be forewarned that a hike on a trail and a hike on sand dunes are two different cats. It's not incredibly strenuous but it takes above average effort to get to the different dunes. Make sure to pay attention to all the little tracks around, you might find a critter.

Make sure you have sun glasses on..lol. the sand blows in your eyes. This is amazing how the sand dunes are formed and who would have thought there were different kinds. The sand is so fine that it is hard to walk in the sands, but don't mean you can't get out and stay by your car to get the... More

Right outside of Stovepipe Wells! A must stop for pictures. Plenty of parking. If you want to walk back into the dunes, being good walking shoes, water and sunscreen. Great adventure.
