Super 8 Alamosa: Nearby Lodging

There is limited lodging available just south of the park on Colorado Highway 150 or you can drive down to US Highway 160 then west to the town of Alamosa. I opted for Alamosa.

Pinyon Flats: Camp By the Dunes

There is one campground inside the park called Pinyon Flats. Do not be like the people in Photo 2 and pitch your tent in an unauthorized area. I did not camp here just wanted to let you know what is available.

Lodging at the Great Sand Dunes

There is a campground in the park's boundaries (Pinyon flats) that runs on a first come, first serve basis. Just outside the park entrance is a private campground, where we stayed. There was also a motel in this area. You can also eat at a restaurant, get supplies, and buy gas here.

The nearest town of respectable size to the park is Alamosa in the San Luis Valley. This park is somewhat out of the way from mainstream travel in the state, however it is far worth it to come here.

Cottonwood Inn Bed and Breakfast: A friendly hotel/B&B in Alamosa

The Cottonwood Inn Bed and Breakfast is a friendly and accommodating place to stay in nearby Alamosa, just 30 minutes from the NP.
The breakfast was very enjoyable and the coziness of the place made us feel at home. I loved reading all the comments from previous guests in the guest log in each room.

Super friendly hostess, wonderful breakfast, convenient location, wonderful hot tub and cozy rooms.
