Area Information

10,600 acres and 15 continuous miles of pure sand. Ever changing dunes from small to very large, with various dune systems linked by a series of trails. Most people will agree that this is one of the most challenging and fun places to visit, offering deep bowls, smooth transitions, and steep razorbacks. It also has one of the tallest and steepest naturally forming dunes in the U.S. Choke Cherry Hill. Camping is permitted at the BLM site on the south end of the dunes (a.k.a. The Meadows), and there are restrooms at this location as well. The BLM sites range from basic to improved with full hookups, and the fees are $25 to $60 per day, depending on the size of camp spot and the amenities provided. There are also two RV parks, Idaho Dunes RV and Sand Hills Resort, situated along the southeastern edge of the dunes. Idaho Dunes RV is a complete facility that has dry camping and full hookup spots, as well as a store and a vehicle repair center. Vehicles that recreate at St. Anthony should be equipped with spark arrestors and safety flags. And it is recommended that you stay off any vegetation, drive in a safe manner, and respect horseback riders. No fees, but OHVs are required to have safety flags and current ORV registration sticker. This spot was featured in our January/February 2013 issue.

Andy Chandler was lucky enough to get his hands on a buggy that previously belonged to Andrew Buck of Buckshot Racing. This X3 is unique, fast, and it looks nicer than ever thanks to Andy's hard work.
