Relax as you cruise along miles of gently rolling sand dunes. Watch dune buggies climb amazingly steep grades at Patton Valley. Visit Buttercup Valley south of I-8. Camping fills up quickly on weekends. Before you go, learn and follow all park regulations. All vehicles must display a 6 inch by 12 inch red or orange flag at least 8 feet above ground. Best time mid-October through May. Fee required for primary vehicle only. Soft sand with gentle grades. Stay in existing tracks as much as possible and away from back sides of dunes. Air down if necessary. To avoid digging in, don’t slam on your brakes or accelerate quickly.
