Brief Directions

Great Dunes NP is located approximately 35 miles north of Alamosa in south central Colorado.

Description

Great Dunes National Park is not nearly as widely known as Yellowstone, Yosemite, Death Valley and others making it a great place to get photos of nature instead of shoulder to shoulder tourists. The dunes are nestled along the wester slopes of the Sangre de Cristo range in the San Luis Valley in south central Colorado. Prevailing winds from the southwest drop the dust and sand they are carrying as they rise to pass over the mountains.
