Coral Pink Sand Dunes, UT

This will be our 5th Annual Coral Pink for the 4th trip. We love going up there for the weekend of the 4th of July, usually we are the only camp in the Meadows. You can come up when you want to, it doesn't have to be on Thursday.

If you have not been to Coral Pink before, it has a little bit of everything. Dunes and trails. We may even bring the dirt tires this trip and explore more of the trails. There is always a possibility of a return day trip to the dinosaur tracks. This is a fun trip that takes most of the day and finding the dino tracks is like a super cool Easter egg hunt.


The scenary is gorgeous!!!!!!!!


The temps during this time of the year can get up into the 90's and usually a 2:00pm thunder storm rolls through. For me, I love riding in the rain at Coral Pink!

 

Some of the things that you need to remember for Coral Pink Sand Dunes:

All campfires MUST be in a container or fire pit. No on the ground campfires.

Your ride must be registered.

No fireworks are allowed.

Children must be 8 yrs of age to ride anything. And 8 - 15yr olds MUST complete this course before operation OHV's ----->  Know Before You Go! Certification Test

You are going to be at 6,000 ft elevation, so you may need to rejet your ride.

If you want to stay in the campground, reservations are required in advance, see information link below.

The Meadows is where we camp and it is a big open area for dry camping. And no reservations are needed :)

DRIVING DIRECTIONS: Via Cane Bed Road (Cane Bed Road has 4 miles of passable, but rough road, rough meaning some washboard, pot holes, silt spots) Its a slow roll for that 4 miles. This is the way we go... If you go this way the Meadows is AFTER you pass the State Park campgrounds. You will need to start to keep an eye out to your right after you pass the information signs turnout and you pass over the cattle guard after the State Park campground.

or to avoid Cane Bed Rd, some chose to go through Kanab, UT This however adds about 40 miles onto your drive time. Especially Moho drivers... If you go this way the Meadows is before the State Park campgrounds and you will see the large open area to your left.

      I know nothing of Duck Creek, there is a event for "Duck Creek Days" I am sure that they can answer questions about Duck Creek. I can answer Coral Pink questions though. There are miles and miles of trails that we plan to explore more if this weekend. We have seen numerous rigs set up for trails that leave from the meadows where we camp and be out and gone all day. We see several camp areas off the main road that are all trail riding groups. The one trail that we have done we were gone all day, packed a lunch, and went to a protected dinosaur track site, where you take a map and search for the Dino tracks, it makes for a fun day, whether you are old or young. Not sure if Duck Creek has something like that, but it makes for a fun day with a great bit of past history of the area.

      Zion Ponderosa has 2 pools, hot tub, tennis, golf, climbing wall, zipline, paintball and a few restaurants. There are cabins and meadow camping/or tents- It is one of my favorite spots so far but the dinasour track thing sounds amazing for the kids. I am hoping that will be my next adventure out there!

      I would like to but I have been very sick. I have good days and bad days, but it is hard to know what each day brings. I thought I would post that link so that maybe someone could create an event with some of the trails... ;)
