The views. There is nothing like it. It is very sandy and you have to walk your tent stuff down the dunes to your site, but it is all worth it to look out your tent and see the most gorgeous sunrise/sets ever.
NO SHADE! Be prepared to be out in the wind and sun. Campground is cut out of the side of a hill between the cabins and the visitors center. You can beat the price or the sunrise! If you love the west this is a place you must wake up one morning. There is a very clean shower house but no other amenities. I did see someone making coffee on the porch of the check in station where he found an electrical outlet. Was not at all crowded and at night the stars were so amazing! The local dogs may visit for a scrap or two and are very friendly - I really wanted to take one home! Nice breakfast can be purchased in hotel area. The horseback ride out into the valley is something not to be missed. We did the Gouldon's truck tour but loved the ride we took with Black's. What an adventure to be galloping those mustangs through the valley….one I will never forget!
