These sand dunes are well worth the time to drive to. It is about a 20-25 minute drive to the Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park from Kanab. So fun to trudge around in the sand and climb to the top of the dunes. We played Bocci Ball and had a splendid time!

My Best Friends dog and I had the dunes to ourselves for about 90 minutes! It's a beautiful and peaceful place. Great for hiking or meditating and relaxing on a dune!

Coral Pink Sand Dunes is not very big but it's a nice place to visit while you are in Kanab. It's only half an hour drive from Kanab. If you've never visited other huge sand dunes, this would be a nice preview. You have to pay $8 entrance fee (per vehicle). I noticed many people went there after 4:30 or... More

The Sand Dunes as far as the eye could see. I was instantly drawn to the forest area that surrounded the area noting how at odds it seemed that sand dunes were surrounded by a pine forest and not the ocean. It was very windy on our vist so we were unable to walk the dunes. The dunes are not... More

We stopped at Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park as we headed west and south to Las Vegas from Kanab, UT. We hiked the well-marked trail along the dunes to get an overview of the entire dune field. The vast expanse of pink sand in front of the mountains was spectacular.

Great place to go! Awesome sand dunes. Great for all kinds of outdoor adventures, walking, hiking or four wheeling! They have some pretty yellow flowers in the summer that seem to only grow there.

The drive to get to the dunes is longer than we thought & there are a Ton of deer, so be careful driving the long winding road. We were there at sunset, so we didn't get the full experience of the pink sand not were we able to take a walk on them. If you can go earlier this late... More

We saw what we saw from the road without actually going into park. Seemed deserted. Colors were not that great. We come from Michigan where the sand dunes are a lot more exciting!

Certainly good to see but I would hesitate if it's worth of money and time spent on driving there...

Yes. It's amazing that the sandstone erosion gets deposited in this location. The sand felt amazingly cool and clean. I tried to walk up one of the taller dunes but it got so windy, narrow and the sand became super soft that it wasn't probably a safe option as I neared the tip. A very unique experience that felt out... More
