Killpecker Sand Dunes

AKA: Killpecker Dunes, Kill Pecker Sand Dunes

Summary


This is the second largest active sand dune in the world with 17 gas producing wells and pipelines and storage tanks scattered throughout the region. Plenty of big air jumps and huge berms can be found along the numerous razorbacks. (It is 100% sand so sand tires are recommended for ATVs or paddle tires for motorcycles.) Due to the high elevation, several dunal ponds known as "flockets" can be found throughout the area at the base of the dunes. The ponds attract herds of elk along with some cattle, sheep and waterfowl. A historic 40 acre ranch is close by, offering an interesting glimpse of Wyoming’s ranching history.
