Coral Pink Sand Dunes
The Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park is so named for the soft red hues of the sand in this region. Over thousands of years the sand has been collecting as the wind gradually forces the grains from the surrounding red sandstone formations.
Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park is 3,730 acres of uninterrupted salmon pink dunes. It is a secluded playground for hiking, off-highway vehicle riding, or simply recreating in the sand. Hikers not only have the option of exploring the boardwalk, overlook trails, and nature trail within the park, but they also have the opportunity of exploring the wide variety of hikes located just minutes from the park.
The park includes a 22-unit campground, hot showers, modern restrooms, and a sewage disposal system and is open year round. Coral Pink Sand Dunes is located between Mt. Carmel Junction and Kanab on US-Highway 89.
