Amazing place. Not everywhere you can find sand dunes like this in North America. Views are straight of the the Sahara and just in our own backyard. Great for families with teens. Expect a workout as the hiking up and down the dunes is strenuous....More

The dunes are nice, and provide especially nice patterns at sunrise and sunset. This is also a wonderful place for stargazing at night.

Incongruous, insofar as these sand dunes appear in an area which appears to be all stone and rock. A lot of fun for youngsters.

Came here for sunset - it's right by Stovepipe Wells. It is so cool to look at the sand dunes from his prospective. Some people were walking far in towards the sand dunes- the height is misleading until you get closer. The sunset is not...More

What hasn’t been said already? This is an incredible place. Along with the other epic viewpoints in Death Valley, you’ll feel like you’re in a spaghetti western. Photographers will have too much fun with this place. As will explorers and hikers. Pack water! July 2017...More

There is a parking lot right next to the dunes. And you can walk over where everyone else has walked unless you really want to walk a long way on sand dunes. Or you can walk through the Devil's Cornfield (maybe 1/2 mile) and start...More

We went there just after viewing sunrise at Zabriskie point. Luckily it had rained a few days earlier, so the sand was more solid that usual sand dunes, so it was easier to walk around. Wish we had been there for a sunrise or sunset....More

A really beautiful and accessible natural wonder in Death Valley. Lots of parking and then folks can wander as little or as much as they want into the dunes. Our two teens decided to head to the top of the tallest dune -- it took...More

Enjoyed walking out on the sand dunes. Amazing place! Went right before the sun starting setting. Late November is the perfect time to go. Not too hot.

Yes, there is a pullout and small parking lot adjacent to the dunes. You can walk out as far as you'd like or take pictures from the car. 4wheel drive is not needed.
