  • I visited the dunes to work on a photography project. Beautiful scenery without a lot of people. I'm sure it can get pretty busy on the weekends though. Watch out for speedy dune buggies! 
  • The Dunes are so beautiful and are well-fenced from off-road vehicles. I've see them in the early morning and after the sun goes down. Can't decide which is prettier. 
  • I don't know whether it is worthwhile to take a wide Anfaht across the desert to purchase, but who is in the area, or even coming as we, who should really take some time and stop here. It's like a short immersion in a foreign world. Simply beautiful!

  • A must see! Hot hot hot but amazing place
  • Beautiful sand dunes near Salton Sea. Do remember to bring LOTS of water if you decide to visit in summer. Temperature can climb up to 130F+ during the day and remain around 90F during night time.
  • The BLM is ruining Glamis with heavy handed tactics that are better served in a war zone. Not a place where families go to get away from the grind. BLM sucks.
  • Been coming here since the 80's, thing have sure changed. But the dunes are always worth the trip.
  • Nice sand dunes, very basic bathroom
