Great Sand Dunes National Park Recreation Description. Best of Tent Camping Colorado
The Great Sand Dunes are a place to take a hike, to discover animals and plants, to seek silence and solitude, to take photographs, to ride a horse, to wilderness camp and, if you like, to run, jump, roll and slide. Your exploration can begin at the foot of the dunes and go as high as almost 750 feet to the top of the highest dune. A four-wheel drive road leads past the eastern portion of the monument, and into the Sangre de Cristo Mountains.

Interpretive walks, talks and evening programs on topics like dune geology, area history and plant and animal life are offered Memorial Day through Labor Day.

A ranger may be available to do a program for your group, but please call at least three weeks in advance to make arrangements. Two Group Picnic areas area are also available. South Ramada requires reservations.

The Great Sand Dunes is open all year, 24 hours a day. Visitor Center hours are from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. in the summer months, with varying hours in the winter months.
