Weiser Sand Dunes

Monday, August 01, 2016

Alt Names

Snake River, Olds Ferry Road

Last Known StatusOpen

Overlooking the scenic Snake River, this is a small dune area with roughly 130 acres of hill climbs, sandy trails and a few play areas to explore. The main staging area is large and flat with plenty of space for large trailers. There are no fees charged to ride but machines must display a current Idaho OHV Registration Sticker.

Camping is permitted but there are no services except for a vault toilet, so come prepared. Additional camping can be found at nearby Steck Park, which is located about 8 miles north past the dune area on Old Ferrys Road. The campground offers shady tent and RV sites with nice river and canyon views, drinking water, dump station, and two boat ramps.
