Best known for their offroad riding conditions, the St. Anthony Sand Dunes provide a sledding experience unlike any other. These mountains of sand are fun for sliding down in the summer but during the winter, you won't find a smoother surface for the snow. There are hills everywhere you look and it doesn't take much to find a bowl or halfpipe like experience.

There isn't one specific hill necessarilly. The sand dunes have an ever changing nature. Just drive by and find a good slope. If it's a great day for sledding, chances are good that there will be others out there as well. There's plenty for everybody though so don't worry about that.

This site is very versatile. I have been here several times and each time participated in a different activity. Though I am one to love heavily forested areas, there is something surprisingly and memorably beautiful about these dry rolling hills.

The Sand Dunes were so cool. We had a fire and roasted marshmallows. I loved going on a walk away from everyone else because I was able to appreciate an incredible view of the stars. The sand is so fun to jump into and play in.

These sand dunes are also an awesome place to have bonfires!

I've been to the Sand Dunes a few times, and it's such a different piece of landscape from the surrounding territory. Some of the dunes are a good 20-25 feet high off the ground below and the nearby road, and it's fun to climb up and roll down. I've seen others race their 4-wheelers on the dunes, but I haven't done that yet. I have usually gone to the dunes and had a campfire after sunset with my friends. I've heard that you might need a permit for that, but I'm not sure what the rules are, since I've never been the one to organize a trip. I remember one night in particular, I went with a roommate and some friends to the dunes during a lightning storm. We watched lightning crash miles away, while we stood in the rain. It was very cool to see the sky light up and illuminate everything with its signature light purple hue. We didn't have a bonfire then, as it was really too wet, but it was a cool moment. If I have the chance to return, I would like to go stargazing there, as I've heard it's far enough away from the local city lights to get a good view of the stars at night.

I've been multiple times, with and without snow. This is the perfect place to go sledding or tubing down the snow covered hills. It's so much fun! Although you have to be careful because sometimes you can't tell when there's going to be a dip or drop as you're sledding/tubing down. Going when it's warmer is fun, too. People have bonfires out there and it's nice to just get away from the city of Rexburg and hang out with friends around a fire.

We love rolling down these sand dunes! And doing back flips and tricks down them. Great for sand boarding and sledding. It's close and fun! Great place for bonfires, just make sure you follow the posted rules or you might get fined!
