“Hard to find a spot last minute”

Reviewed Aug 12, 2017

Overall Rating

If you're tent camping this a great campground and easy to find a site, but with a trailer it's a challenge. The sites are small and not intended for trailers, but there are quite a few sites you can fit into. If you're coming for the first come first serve, get here around 9-10am any day of the week in the summer or you will be out of... more

“Beware of mosquitoes”

Reviewed Jul 23, 2017

Overall Rating

We arrived a little after noon on a weekday in late June and got the last spot in the first come first serve loop that would fit our motorhome. The mosquitoes were not too bad at first but got progressively worse later in the day. We were fortunate to have a nice view of the dunes from our site. It took two bags of blocks to get lev... more

“Baby, let me watch you walk away...”

Reviewed Jun 26, 2017

Overall Rating

Great Sand Dunes is not a large park, as far as what you can drive. This gangster of a gem is right in the belt loop of it all. Even as the wind blew rancor fierce to flatten my fire and scare my family inside of our van, even as the sands of time whipped dull the bump of my pupils, even as the spots were not exactly spacious, I wat... more

“Nice desolate campground ”

Reviewed Mar 28, 2017

Overall Rating

They have two main loops, one that accepts reservations ahead of time and another that is on a first come first serve basis. The campground fills up quickly including first come first serve, I would recommend arriving before 10am to find a walk up site. The campground is right next to the sand dunes which makes for wonderful views and ... more

“Unique place”

Reviewed May 15, 2015

Overall Rating

We camped here in July 2014 in our pop-up tent camper. The campground was full during our one night stay. I had reserved online ahead of time otherwise we wouldn't have found a site. The only problem is that I chose the most un-level site in the campground, or so my husband believes. The pad was paved so there wasn't an option to chan... more

“A wonderful campground with views of the dunes ”

Reviewed Sep 24, 2014

Overall Rating

We loved this campground! Not only was it convenient to camp steps away from the dunes, but we also managed to grab a spot with amazing views. The sites are well spaced here, but not overly large, and definitely not big rig friendly. We arrived on a Sunday afternoon and easily found a site big enough for our 25' trailer. It was after L... more
