We didn't stay here, but have some useful info to drop for those who don't care to stay here either, but find themselves confronted with opposition of varying assortments while staying at the San Luis or the Great Sand Dunes themselves.

You can shower here for $5 / person. The showers are hot, and four of us took long ones (after days playing in the sand and nearby forests without the option). They never ran out of hot water. Lovely.

Same with laundry, but there's no additional fee to us the laundry.

The store here sells beer, including craft beer. This is good to know because Alamosa is about 40 minutes away and the closest place to get good brews. Check out the brewery in that town if you make the trek.

They also sell firewood and this is where you rent the sandboards and sleds if you want to do that at the park.

You can also get decent AT&T service here, good enough to get things done (as opposed to inside of the park, where even when it reads 2 - 3 bars, the traffic was heavy enough to render it useless).

There's a decent playground here with a spectacular view, though how the RV spots are setup, only the guy on the end gets the full on view of the dunes and mountains in the park, and they're really close together.

We found out the hard way that the National Park's campground doesn't open until April and we arrived 3/27. Luckily, The Great Sand Dune Oasis is just down the road from the Park entrance. There might have been other options further away, but after driving a full day, we were tired. The woman at the Oasis general store was extremely helpful and so genuinely sweet. She allowed us to use a tent site for $25, instead of the $38 RV site, even though we have a camper van. After checking out the tent sites, which were all fairly rocky and unlevel, we decided to shell out the extra $ and take the RV site instead. The tent sites are in the trees, but the RV sites are located all in a row on gravel. Not exactly what I would have liked, but we were desperate. The spots normally have water, but not this time of year, and sewer, as well as included showers and laundry facilities. We didn't use the showers, but I checked them out and they looked very clean and well maintained. The little store has some basic supplies, including eggs, which we needed. Because it was still off season (and a Monday), there were only 2 other RV's, so noise was not an issue at all. Decent cell signal for Verizon.
