Other Names

The Knolls

Last Known StatusOpen

Located just minutes away from the famous Bonneville Salt Flats, this area offers year-round access to 36,000 acres of hills, sand dunes and trails. Primitive camping is permitted but there is no shade or water so come prepared.

There is an entry fee charged per vehicle which can be paid onsite. Annual passes can be purchased online or by contacting the BLM. Whip flags are mandatory and good sand tires are recommended. Keep within the boundaries as there is a military bombing range nearby.
