Those restrooms have also been winterized, but vault toilets are available in all campgrounds. For those needing water, frost free spigots are located in the Equestrian Campground so you can fill a jug or RV tank.
  • All campsites are first come/first served until March 16, 2023
  • The Visitor Center is open 7 days a week through the end of October. We will post new Visitor Center hours next month.

About the Park

With one of the longest camping seasons in the Idaho Parks system, Bruneau Dunes State Park offers camping opportunities throughout the year. Campsites and cabins are available with plenty of first-come, first-served sites too.

Bruneau Dunes park boasts the tallest single-structured sand dune in North America with a peak rising 470 feet above the surrounding desert floor. Explore the dunes in your hiking boots or rent a sandboard from the Visitor Center, but off-road vehicles are only permitted  on the main road. You can also fish for bluegill in the lakes at the foot of the dune; unlock the mystery of the desert with a breathtaking hike or horseback ride; plan a group picnic or visit the Bruneau Dunes Observatory (during non-COVID-19 times) and gaze at the night sky through the Observatory’s collection of telescopes.
