Has anyone been there? I would like to go this weekend (Labor Day) I need a flag and a permit, but Iím unsure on where to get one. Also is the west winds day use OHV staging area free to use for access to the dunes? I appreciate the help

This might be a little late ó hope youíve already explored.

Iíve been on sand lake dunes a couple times. You can get an off road permit at a few of the local gas stations on the drive to the dunes - they last a year. Just google OR ohv permit.

You can get a flag at a motorcycle supply store. You have to be creative with the mounting. I clamped it on my roof rack rail.

Thereís a good staging area to air down. (If you donít air down, youíll be like everybody else stuck as soon as they get off the cement). I ran 15-18 psi, rear locker, traction control off, use manual shifting to keep the revs between 4-6k where the engine builds a bit of HP when you are trying a dune climb.

Watch your roll over angles as things get deceptive in the sand.

Bring a shovel, buddy and traction device if you arenít used to running in the sand.

Itís a hoot out there; youíll quickly discover why you need more dampening and everything in the cab needs to be strapped down firmly.

Have fun ó

I did go out there. It was a blast but super busy. Drove my tundra and had zero issue. Tried to go out there yesterday to go camping and it was a monsoon all night. Tent ended up leaking. So we packed up and left this morning. I really want to go back again
