September 2021 Update:
Beginning Friday September 24th, fire restrictions at Bruneau Dunes State Park will be lifted. Wood fires and charcoal will be allowed, but we encourage visitors to only construct the minimum fire necessary as we are still very dry in the park and campgrounds. All fires must be within the designated fire ring in your campsite.
Observatory update (September 2021): In order to make needed repairs on the building, we have decided to close the Observatory a little early this season. We apologize to those hoping to reserve a spot in October. We hope to resume normal programs in the spring and to see you here!
Please note: UAV/Drone use is only permitted in the designated UAV area (contact the park for location). Flight outside of the designated are is strictly prohibited.
The park has day use areas, which include the dunes, which are only open to the public from 7 am to 10 pm. Please refer to IDAPA code 26.01.20.
Bruneau Dunes State Park is a great place to ride your horse. The equestrian area has corrals and water spigots for your horses. There is a vault toilet and a small shelter with picnic tables. The area includes 19 non-reservable campsites.
