The Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve is a world-class destination featuring the tallest dunes in North America and is just 35 miles northeast of Alamosa. It is an easy drive via U.S. 160 and Colorado 150 from the south, or from Colorado 17 and Country Lane 6 from the west.
Against the backdrop of rugged 14,000' peaks in the Sangre de Cristo mountains—the 30 square mile dune field, with no designated trails—invites you to explore freely. The natural system of the Park ranges from sand dunes to forests, cottonwood groves to majestic mountain peaks, and tundra. The highest elevation in the park is 13,604' above sea level. The Visitor Center and campground areas are at about 8,200'.
The Park is open 24 hours a day, all year. Consult the official Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve web site for information on fees and camping reservations. There are many events from May through September including the Summer Concert Series and Junior Ranger Day.
