Spring is a great time to visit and camp at Bruneau Dunes State Park! Water has been turned back on to all RV sites. The restroom buildings are open and showers are available in Eagle Cove Campground. (Broken Wheel Campground showers will be opened soon.)
Our observatory is closed until further notice. Please, keep an eye on this page for upcoming observatory announcements.
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.
**Please note: The Observatory Programs only occur on Friday and Saturday evenings (with the exception of 3-day holiday weekends). Observatory season occurs early April through mid-October and is weather-permitting.
