This park is beautiful, mind boggling it exists, and the views are breathtaking. It's worth the work out for sure to explore.

Ever see someone sledding down a sand dune? You'll see it here. The dunes are HUGE. Great place to spend some time, particularly at sunset.

We have been to Jockey's Ridge several times over the years... It is in a "must visit" category as far as my wife and I are concerned... The views are amazing. Go for a sunset... You won't be disappointed....
It is a bit of a hike uphill thru the sand...so dress accordingly.

It is a nice park to spend half a day. We enjoyed the sand dune walk and the view from top of the sand dune. My son participated in a 'ranger' program. He went out and gathered information on plants, birds, and animal tracks. He lrearned something and had fun in the process.
The park is free. It is conveniently located next to the highway.
