White Sands National Park


Rising from the heart of the Tularosa Basin is one of the world's great natural wonders, the glistening white sands of New Mexico. Great wave-like dunes of gypsum sand have engulfed 275 square miles of desert, creating the world's largest gypsum dunefield. White Sands National Park preserves a major portion of this unique dunefield, along with the plants and animals that live here.

You're about to become part of an amazing legacy that stretches back in time over more than 10,000 years. Seemingly stark and barren, the 275 square miles of brilliant white gypsum sand dunes are home to an amazing diversity of life, weaving a spell over all who visit. The dunes offer countless opportunities for discovery and it is our sincere hope that you will have fun, make lifelong memories, and develop a deep connection to a place that has provided spiritual and physical sustenance to humankind for thousands of years.
