  • The cost is only $5, which we deposited in an envelope just before the visitor’s center. The visitor’s center is a little on the sad side, taxidermic wildlife displays, small gift shop, a photocopied ...  more »
  • May be the subject of a detour on the way between Boise and Pocatello. The dunes are not yellow as in the Sahara or white as those of White Sands (NM) but light gray. If it s "a little off the track we have a feeling of being away from it all." Good Visitor Center.

  • Easy camping in the grassy areas. Bathrooms, showers, and RV hookups. The dunes are fun to climb during the day. Good aerobic exercise. Windy at the top. When I was there, must have been gale force winds. The sand hitting my exposed lower legs was moderately painful. The observatory is awesome.
  • The Bruneau Dunes are a must visit for anyone who enjoys the wonders of nature! The park is well maintained and the camping spots are nice (covered picnic table and fire pit). The people are friendly and the views are stunning! Looking forward to going back when the Observatory is open.
  • Great place to explore and have fun. Bruneau Dunes have Tent/RV camping, dogs are welcome but must be leashed, birding, and observatory. You can rent boards at the Ranger Station to use for sledding the dunes.
  • Amazing. Beautiful. Stunning. Simple. This is a place to visit in Idaho for sure. Don’t expect a 5 star resort. What it is, is a place to explore with your family. Enjoy the views, the vistas.
  • Our favorite camping venue. Can be hot during summer. Wonderful observatory to see.
