Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park

Saturday, December 23, 2023

Other Names

Sandy Canyon Wash, Corral Pink State Park

Last Known StatusOpen

Rose-colored sand dunes with scattered juniper and pinion pine trees are the main attraction at this state park. The dunes are open year-round to all vehicles but the best time to visit is during early spring through late fall.

The park has a campground which offers 22-paved RV accessible sites, each with a picnic table, BBQ grill, fire pit and access to nearby potable water spigots. Other amenities include modern restrooms and a day use areas with nice shade gazebos. Reservations are recommended, especially during holiday weekends.

Camping can also be found at nearby Ponderosa Grove which is located at the northeastern part of the dunes. The campground offers nine primitive sites but no direct dune access since ATVs are not permitted on Hancock Road. Quiet hours are from 10pm to 9am and are strictly enforced.
