Getting to Great Sand Dunes National Park

Driving to Great Sand Dunes

Great Sand Dunes National Park can be reached off of US-160 east of the city of Alamosa. Turn onto CO-150 and follow it into the park. From within Alamosa, take CO-7 north to County Lane 6 and follow it east to CO-150 and the park.

Below you will find an interactive map showing the location of the visitor center in Great Sand Dunes. Following this are the official park maps provided by the National Park Service. You can view either the original PDF file or a simple JPEG image file (some of these files can be quite large). The map links will open in a new tab. Note that while these maps are useful for general navigation around the park, if you plan to do any hiking, you should really have a proper Great Sand Dunes Trail Map.
