Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park encompasses 3,730 acres of south-western Utah. Established in 1963 with land
acquired from the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to serve as access to the
dunes for recreation, and to protect the dune resources.
At an elevation of 6,000 feet,
and 12 paved miles off U.S. Highway 89 near Kanab, Utah, this park provides a
fantastic setting for camping, hiking, off-highway vehicle riding, taking
photographs or just playing in the sand.
