Friends of Dumont Dunes

The Dumont Dunes Off-Highway Vehicle Area, also referred to as an Open Area, is an exciting and remote area for off-highway vehicle recreation. Bordered by steep volcanic hills and the slow running Amargosa River, the region is easily recognized from a distance by its distinctive sand dunes. The elevation here varies from 700 feet, at the river, to 1200 feet at the top of Competition Hill, the tallest of the dunes.

The riding area is south of the Amargosa River and east of State Highway 127, about 31 miles north of Baker, California. There are two ways of getting to the dunes. The Little Dunes staging and camping area is directly off Highway 127, conveniently located for immediate staging. One mile north of here, just off Highway 127, is Dumont Road, a dirt road which follows and crosses the river, leading  to the main field of large dunes.


Vehicles operated on bladed dirt roads and paved highways (publicly maintained roads) must be registered for highway use. All required safety equipment must be installed in such vehicles

Off-highway vehicles owned by California residents must be registered with the California Department of Motor Vehicles and must display a valid "Green Sticker" registration plate properly on the vehicle (38010 C.V.C. and 38170 C.V.C.)

If you are NOT a resident of California and your off-highway vehicle is not registered in your home state, you are required to have a NON-RESIDENT "Green Sticker" OHV permit, issued by California Department of Parks and Recreation, to operate your vehicle in the state of California (38020 C.V.C.). The display locations on the vehicle are the same as those specified for California Green Stickers (38170 C.V.C.)
