This was my first visit to Bruneau sand Dunes in nearly 50 years. Needless to say, we are not able to climb to the top of the dunes, or anything too strenuous. Our tips for you include that dogs are allowed (we had our two...More
We recently camped and explored 2 days. The first day we went to some smaller dunes that you get to on the road first. Lots of people were there trying to sled down them. We have found from experience that sleds do not work unless...More
