Bruneau Dunes Campground is situated alongside the largest sand dune in all of North America. Standing a staggering 427 feet, the small mountain (as it’s often been referred to) just appears seemingly out of nowhere from the otherwise flat, desert-like conditions surrounding the campground. The area’s reservable campsites are also within close proximity to the neighboring observatory, one of just two in the state.

I went in early season, and was able to walk up for a site. Great spot to explore the dunes from.

We didn't get to stay more than a night on our way to Yellowstone from Oregon but it was a unique, dry landscape with the lake close by. I definitely want to go back and sled/board down the sand dunes! Sunset was amazing.
