Location

33.9 miles north of Baker on Route 127, turn right on Dumont Dunes Road and head east on graded road into the dunes.

Area Information

2,300 acres of very steep, smooth, barren sand dunes with no vegetation. Camping is allowed and there are BLM restrooms, but there is no running water, drinking water, or other services at the area. Nearest services are in Baker. The camping area is a hard surface consisting of rock and sand mixture, and the dunes drop directly to the base of the desert floor. Dune profile is steep, with razorbacks at every turn of the wheel. A semi-permanent ranger station is located on site, and a ranger is usually present on most weekends, as well as holidays during the off-roading season. There is also a dune host at this location during the off-roading season. A California Green Sticker or Red Sticker must be displayed on the vehicle, and an adequate muffler or spark arrester is required. Non-resident California OHV permits are also required. These can be purchased from the Barstow BLM office as well as some businesses in Baker and Las Vegas. For more information on this, visit the BLM web-site shown above. Cell phone service is sporadic in the area, so be fully prepared with supplies when camping at Dumont. This ride spot was last featured in our July/August 2006 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.
