These sand dunes seem to just come out of now where, and are just beautiful. We dont have ATV’s but there were several people riding around. The southern ranger station (Buttercup, off I-8)) seems to be permanently closed, don’t know about the northern one. There were several RV’s at the camping area, and plenty of room for everyone to camp and play with their “toys”. We read about the Plank Road, which was very interesting. For us, it was just a short rest stop off I-8, but I can see why people would stay for a while and camp here.

We stopped in the recreational area as we were trying to find the old Wood Plank Road. We found it but also enjoyed the beauty of the natural sand dunes. This is a great recreational area.

If you love sand & sand dunes, this is the most awesome place ever. Beautiful while soft spongie sand, just to sit or play in. Wear sun screen, hats and dust filters...to breath if you are following other ATV's.

I drive to California usually 2-3 times per year and once a year I visit the Imperial Sand Dunes. Each visit I see different free form dunes and of course I make every attempt to visit during the Golden Hour. I prefer hot summer visits because the number of visitors then is at very low numbers; Less footprints in the sand.
