  • Great experience! My 4 children absolutely loved sand sledding. My infant was snuggled and slept through it all. I was worried about the altitude with my infant and she did fine. Suggestions dress in layers, bring goggles because the wind blows the sand into your eyes, we had masks on and that helped a lot as well. Bring a drink! It’s really tiring walking in the sand. We went Yesterday Feb 20, temp was 40 degrees and it was comfortable due to the activity of going up and down, I can’t imagine going here in the summer. Last suggestion you can rent the Sand sleds! I was asked all day where we got them. There are several businesses listed on the parks website of where you can rent them and when. Overall our experience was 10/10!
  • This is a must see if you live in Colorado or just visiting. I have been here multiple times and it’s always super fun. The summer sand is pretty hot and there’s not much water in the creek so be prepared to wear shoes in the sand. March is ideally the best time in my opinion. Don’t forget to rent your sand surfing board. Camped out at the alien watch tower also super cool if you’re into quirky roadside attractions as I am.
