Nope...

Thought about stopping a few times when coming or going to Canada or the U.P.

We hit the dunes at Coral Pink Sand Dunes in S/C Utah. Very different riding type.

You should have a good time, it will definitely be a change of scenery... Take Pics.

Been there 3 times, and very good times...

Mostly sport quad and sand tires. First trip was stock tires, they did ok but didnt have alot of good hook up, something you need at the tops of those climbs....

Seen guys ride utilities, rail buggies, trucks, jeeps ect out there.

Used to be a lottery to enter, you got your ticket at another location and lined up at the entrance... During the off season, first come first ride. once that number or lot was full, those in line waited till riders left for the day. Sure things have changed by now, been 5 or so years since ive been there.

Hills used to be one direction to prevent folks from running into each other. lots of two way and wide open areas. Usually folks drag racing in one large open area. I strongly advise a soft run of the hills. Sand tops change overnite. Rode once all day friday, hit the hills hard the second morning only to hit the 3rd of 5tops and finding a knife edge that dropped 12+feet straight down. Glad no one freaked, as i was the following 4th. Something you never forget.

Make sure what ever you ride has to be in the noise limits, and had to have a spark arrestor. Flag poles are required.

Went there about 8 years ago. Wasn't bad. Not sure how much fun it would be in a stock HP RZR. Sand eats a lot of power. Its good to try it at least once. Resq did a good job of telling you the requirements. Smaller place than out west of course but by the second day you'll be tired of it. Have a good one Mike.

slopoke, I talked to my uncle a little bit. He use to go up there and run his sandrail. He said try to plan the trip during the week if at all possible. The weekends are nuts with idiots.
