To seek out this strange land for yourself, travel northbound on State Highway 191 from Rock Springs, Wyoming. Turn right on County Road 4-17/Tri-Territory Loop Road and follow it for about 20 miles. Once you come upon the Sand Dunes access road, take it, and follow it for one mile. Hang a right at the intersection you’ll arrive at, and drive just one more mile to the campground. Remember: leave no trace! What you pack in, make sure to pack out so that future generations can appreciate this incredible natural wonderland.
