Alt Names

Juniper Dunes

Last Known StatusOpen

Open year-round, this area consists of dunes and several trails that wind through sagebrush and juniper trees. Primitive camping is permitted and there are no services but there are plans to add BBQ grills, trashcans, shelters and picnic tables in the future. Whip flags are required and a permit must be filled out before arrival, which can be obtained by contacting the Spokane BLM office. The first two miles of Peterson Road is located on private property and permission must be obtained from the local landowners.
