  • We stayed at Stovepipe Wells as we traveled through Death Valley. The Mesquite Sand Dunes were less than 5 minutes away so we had to stop. The dunes are mammoth and my kids had fun running through...

  • My teenaged son and I enjoyed the Mesquite Flats Sand Dunes. This was one of our favorite spots in Death Valley. The day we were there it was around 75 degrees and so it wasn't too hot to explore...

  • This is one of the signature sights in the park and you can spend quite a bit of time there. This place does get quite busy so get there very early or late in the day to avoid the crowds. You can go ahead walk for what seems like forever as the dunes go on and on. This is a great spot to watch both the sunrise and sunset.
  • Absolutely Beautiful. It was fun running up & down the sand dunes. You have to accept that you'll get sand in your shoes, socks, and other places if you slide down the dunes. Embrace it and have fun.
