San Luis State Wildlife Area
San Luis State Wildlife Area

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​In the shadow of the Great Sand Dunes National Park is peaceful San Luis State Wildlife Area. Waterfowl, shorebirds, songbirds and raptors fill the sky over this unique desert ecosystem, making San Luis an outstanding watchable wildlife area most of the year.

The wildlife area is located just 15 minutes west of the Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve

ATTENTION CAMPERS: For the 2017 camping season campers will need to plan to bring their own potable water, ice, and firewood, in part because the water system on the park has become cost prohibitive to maintain at current health standards.
