Moses Lake Sand Dunes – Washington State ORV Park

Moses Lake Sand Dunes

These are a couple quick snapshots from this past summer.  My dad helped drive me over to Kellogg, ID to pick up a new vehicle and on the way back we decided to check out Moses Lake Sand Dunes, it’s an area we’ve seen signs for while driving along I-90 a couple times now and that we’ve seen on the web before, but never did get a chance to stop off and look at.

Moses Lake Sand Dunes cover over 3,000 acres of off-road sand dune area and is regulated by the Grant County Sheriff’s Department.  The sand dunes provide much different terrain for off-roading than what you’ll typically find West of the Cascade Mountains.  Scouting the area out, my dad actually managed to sink the front of his car down into the sand fairly deep, we had to dig the sand out until we got down to wet, harder packed sand.  Definitely a word of caution for anyone driving into this area, he just barely turned off the main sand covered road near a restroom!  At first I didn’t know if I’d need to test out the new SUV and it’s all wheel drive in the sand dunes, but luckily with after some quick digging and assisted push from someone else who was in the area, he was able to get it out of the sinking sand and back onto the harder packed main roadway.

This will certainly be an area we need to bring the quad and dirt bikes over too!  Question will be how well any of them perform in the sand, we’ll likely need to take out some of the air in the tires and/or consider getting at least a back set of sand paddlers.

The Lake

Moses Lake (the actual lake, not the name of the city) is also popular with personal watercraft PWC’s and boaters alike.
