We were looking for camping in the area and stumbled onto this very cool area just outside of town. I wish I had a dirt bike or quad to play on the dunes. The dirt is very unique, it's not super soft like sand but more of a dirt-sand mix. The best camping we found was right next to the reservoir, it has some trees for shade but not for firewood. The trail was super easy, with only a couple blind ruts and washouts. It looks like they grade the route every so often.
