The Largest OHV Recreation Area for Sand Dunes In the United States

Breathtaking. Surreal. Truly amazing.

The Imperial Sand Dunes (known as Glamis) have been called many things… and they are all true!

Glamis is the largest (40 miles in a band averaging 5 miles wide) off-highway vehicle (OHV) recreation area for sand dunes in the United States. There’s golden sand as far as the eye can see. This means you can completely unleash the adventurous spirit in your blood through your off-road vehicle. Jumps. Races. Airing it out. You can do it all here.

It’s easy to see why Glamis is a favorite location for OHV enthusiasts. Generations have been coming here year after year.

But that’s not all. You may have seen the dunes in famous movies like Star Wars, The Scorpion King, Lawrence of Arabia, and many others.

Whether you’re looking for an amazing adventure, one-of-a-kind scenery or endless miles of quiet solitude, Glamis has it all. There’s no other place like this in the world, so do yourself a favor and come for a visit today.
