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

The sand is unique and looks very dessert-ish. Picture dessert full of white sand mountains that's how it is. The heat is very strong as we are there during Sept. Bring along shades, hats, and sunscreen.

Might not be the beside idea to go in August, but it should certainly be visited. Lizards, snakes and the occasional roadrunners can be seen. Quiet and away from much traffic.

Try to schedule the trip in the early or late hours, when it's not too hot. But it's worth going through the trouble: fantastic hike.

The dunes are pretty and afford nice views of the surrounding area, but the real treat is discovering the tracks made by various animal and insect life across the dunes. We were able to identify 6 different types of tracks including sidewinder rattlesnake, hare, and beetles. To see these you must go in the morning before visitors trod over the... More

Classic desert sand dune system that you can walk on and play with. Just remember to take water with you and remember where your car was - you really don't want to explore too far and get lost or dehydrated!

The dunes were just down from where we were staying in Death Valley and we decided to visit them one evening after dinner, when it was slightly cooler. We had the added entertainment of a research team there collecting insects in traps they had set up, so what we expected to be a short visit lasted until well after sun... More

Long drive and the road has washouts but the dunes are really cool and it was worth the drive. It was so empty.
