Spot Comments:


  • I like Pinyon Flats but it is often full.  The sites down low have great views of the dunes and the ones higher up are in the trees and more private.  Hiking trails lead north, south and west from the campground.

    If Pinyon Flats is full, there is a private CG south of the NP and a CO state park is to the west.  Both campgrounds have showers, which Pinyon Flats does not.

  • This campground is nice for its proximity to the Sand Dune trails, but is lacking on privacy. It is very busy in the spring when it is best to see the Creek through the dunes.

    Worth a visit, but be ready for crowds in the Spring.
