We always adore the National Park campgrounds. They usually offer great, well-maintained sites and a few pretty amazing views from the park. Pinon Flats, the sole front country campground of Great Sand Dunes National Park isn‘t any exception. Just a couple of hours south of Denver, the campground is simply past the entrance and Visitor’s Center from the campground. The wonder everyone came to discover, the dunes, will be your view for the stay, like the dunes are visible from almost all campsites. Some sites can be reserved in advance, and I highly recommend you are doing so. Just a few sites accommodate larger rigs and make sure to read site lengths carefully when your book. Our site was labeled having a length restriction of 35 feet, and that‘s absolutely the longest rig it might hold. Also, when you have slides in your rig, make certain to reserve a
in site. Some sites are designated as pull through but they are even more of a achieve site and also the driveway from the site is merely a shallow pull out upon the side from the road. Sites provide a picnic table, paved pads, fire rings, bear boxes and in fact, views from the dunes. The campground is placed on the hillside crammed with shrubs and with several loops, A, B and C. Sites in loop A are first come, first served, while B and C could be reserved. A trail from camp, easily accessed from all loops, takes you right all the way down to the wide, shallow river that surrounds the dunes upon the east. Across this river lies the dunes. Towards the east of camp, you will see the another section of the park, an alpine mountain system, and also to the south you will see a wetland and grassland system. All of those systems coexist during this relatively small space. Make sure to visit the Visitor’s Center so that you could find out about the park, how it was eventually created and all there is to carry out here !
