DESCRIPTION
Last Known StatusOpen
Trail Photo

About 3,000 acres of year-round rolling inland sand dunes are available here for motorized use. Adjacent to the sand dunes is an area called the Mud Flats, which is an additional 3,000 acres of sand, mud and trails to explore but is only open from July 1 through October 1.

Camping is permitted but there are no services except for a vault toilet, so bring your own shade and water. Direct access to the lake makes this a choice spot so you can bring along the water toys too. Note that the dunes are covered with volcanic ash and tend to be little dusty.

A paddle tire is not required but new riders may want to bring something like a Sand Snake paddle tire for motorcycles or Sedona Cyclones sand tires for ATVs. Failure to use a sand tire in deep sand can sometimes result in unnecessary wear or damage to your vehicle.
