After miles and miles and miles of the Sonoran Desert, you come upon these sand dunes along route 8 and the sight is amazing. I had visited the sand dunes in Death Valley and these are just as stunning. Had to stop and take pictures,...More
I did visit the dunes pretty briefly but I mainly wanted to visit yhe Old Plank Road monument. It was a pretty cool piece of history. Originally saw it on a show on discovery channel, but to see and learn about it in person really...More
Most people do not realize there are sand dunes are in California. We have been there a few times with friend and family. The view is majestic. It feels like another world. We were there once at sun set, the colors are fantastic
Following a recent trip to Yuma we drove by the sand dunes and had to stop. We wished we had an ATV to properly enjoy the dunes but instead decided to simply hike up one of the hills. My husband and oldest daughter sat on...More
We were surprised by these dunes while driving along I-8. They are beautiful from a distance and even more so as you get close. We camped on BLM land a few miles away and went to see the dunes twice. We had a hard time...More
These sand dunes are way prettier than the White Sands National Monument in New Mexico. Even though it was an especially windy day, folks were really enjoying 4-wheeling around on the miles of pristine dunes, and they go on for miles. Just beautiful!
No amenities other than a few latrines on the railroad road and dumpsters at the entrance for the $35 per weekend fee. However it is the prettiest 40 mile by 5 mile stretch of sand dunes that you will ever see. You can tent camp,...More
You will be mesmerized by the Sand dune's. You can come out time after time with your family and friends to camp at one of the most gorgeous spots of the desert. I have brought my family and friends out here for over 35 years...More
Driving through the Sonoran Desert on our way to San Diego, we suddenly spotted some "mountains" off in the distance that appeared to have a strange yellow coloration. The closer we got, the stranger they looked. Eventually we realized they weren't mountains but rather huge...More

There is a Ranger station off of Gecko Rd with parking and pit toilets. Unless you're spending the night camping you'll need a pass. There at the Ranger station they have maps of the area too. One of the most spectacular... More
There is a Ranger station off of Gecko Rd with parking and pit toilets. Unless you're spending the night camping you'll need a pass. There at the Ranger station they have maps of the area too. One of the most spectacular views is off of Osborne Lookout you can drive down the road safely- but be very careful parking! Make sure the shoulder is a hard packed area and not soft sand!! The view is stunning and a touch of unearthly at sunset looking across the dunes you'll not believe you're in California. Further down the road is Glamis Beach store that has a bar and pizza 🍕. Have a wonder time taking pictures
