“Lovely place”
Reviewed June 3, 2012

These dunes were surprisingly lovely. We arrived on Labor Day night to stay at one of the cabins and found the park blissfully nearly empty. There are only three cabins in the park, and we luckily chose the one (Oak Cabin) that is most off the road and surrounded by trees. These are simple cabins, with just two bunk beds (sleeps 4) a desk and four chairs that can be pulled outside if needed. Outside is a fire ring, picnic table and a bench. Very close by is a store that sells firewood until 9pm. And best of all there is electricity -- although we found the light created a hurricane of every type of insect imaginable (but amazingly woke up with no mosquito bites). The bathrooms in the campground were surprisingly clean.

Our morning hike took us right up and over Mt. Randall -- actually quite an arduous hike in the heat, for the three of us who consider ourselves to be rather fit. Once at the top though, your're rewarded with amazing views in every direction and it's quite exhilarating. The remaining hike through the dunes to the beach isn't very difficult and is quite beautiful. At the end, nothing better than to jump in for a cool swim, a bask on the warm sand, and then a walk back to camp through the woods. Having arrived right after the big Memorial Day rush, we found the beach not as clean as we would have liked, but still quite beautiful and worth the trip.
