Dumont Sand Dunes ~ Halloween Weekend *NO Host Event*

Halloween weekend generally kicks off the Dumont sand season.

It is a great weekend to people watch. Kids and Adults alike dress up and decorate their camps with all of the spookiness of Halloween.

Saturday evening brings trick or treating for the kids, so make sure you being some treats, to hand out.

Comphill is usually wall to wall entertainment for the adults that want to dress up.

Since we are vendors during the holiday weekends, we won't be camping out in the main camp area, but you can always make camp arrangements with others who maybe going.

Be sure to stop by our GTP Off Road booth at Vender Row, and do a meet and greet with us.

    We had a busy weekend on Vendor's Row. I only had a minute to say hello when Marvyn stopped by. I hope everyone who went had a great weekend! Had tons of fun handing candy out to all the trick or treaters. So cute seeing all the costumes. And of course we did get a little break to check out the comp hill area on Saturday night after we ran out of two Costco sized candy bags.

    Hey eveyone, FYI. I just bought my Dumont season pass and it has the following weekend marked as the holiday, not the 25th. Not sure if it matter to you but it will to the majority of the people going! I will be heading out that weekend, as well as next weekend the 18th

      Funny how the BLM changed their mind on which weekend - they are losing $$ but whatever makes them happy. O.o

      Yes they have a whole new crew for Dumont at the BLM office, apparently they didn't keep notes on the official holiday. It has always been traditionally the weekend of or the weekend before. I agree, with this weekend not the "official holiday" it saves everyone $10 on the weekend passes :)

      Hopefully next time you will have picked up a trailer. Or you can always rent one super cheap from Uhaul. The bed of my truck will be full or I would offer to toss it in the back of truck.

    So, I just looked on dumontdunes.com and it has the Halloween Holiday starting on Oct. 24th, so everyone may be good. I guess the BLM will just miss out on all that revenue for the more expensive dumont holiday passes! Down side, there may not be emergency services available, at least to the same extent...

    1 · October 11, 2013

    • Jodi *Starry* K.

      There actually won't be any emergency services out there if the shut down is still going. BLM won't have any rescue vehicles on site, nor radios to call for help, so help will be on your own. I hope the government is done with this by then, or we will lose out on our vending revenue, and we invested alot for this weekend in particular. But the dunes are open, you just have to be super careful.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
