Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park has beautiful pink/red sand dunes, ATV trails
and riding areas, very nice campground.
Year round visit.
note 1: This park sand dunes is shared by OHV and other off-road 4-wheelers so
it can be less friendly for hikers. I visited it in sunrise of a very cold day
so no ATV but I’m sure during the day they are driving all over.
note 2: Very good and well-maintained campground (including hot showers, that I
did not used 😊). Good
option to spend the night before/after visiting Zion NP or Kanab UT.
thoughts: This is a nice but not mandatory park to visit. If you are looking
for official campground near Kanab UT, this can be excellent option. Do expect 4-wheelers
cars going around so it less friendly for hikers.
dune is created by pink-colored Navajo Sandstone erosion accumulated in a
valley between the Moquith Mountains to the east and the Moccasin Mountains to
nice campground near the visitor center.
main park entrance go east to the viewpoint, keep going east into the dunes and
explore the area. The largest sand dune is on this park section not so far into
the dunes and you can climb it all the way to the top.
another small, no need to pay fee, parking lot 1 mile north of the main park
entrance on hwy 43, you can go and explore the dunes from there.
