​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​In the shadow of the Great Sand Dunes National Park is peaceful San Luis State Park and 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 park is located just 15 minutes west of the Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve and features a modern campground. All 51 sites have electrical hookups, sheltered tables, fire grills, and an available dump station. Campsites have a panoramic view of San Luis Lake, the surrounding Sangre de Cristo Mountain Range and the Great Sand Dunes.

Check the park’s Conditions Page or call the park at (719) 378-2020 for current lake conditions. During winter months call Lathrop State Park at (719) 738-2376 for current conditions.

​Campground is closed for the 2016 season.  For more information, click on our camping page​.

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.   Comments or question about changes are being taken through November 11 at or To see the full news release, go to​
