Star Viewing at the Dunes and the Alamosa KOA

Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve and the International Dark-Sky Association are pleased to announce the designation of Great Sand Dunes as an International Dark Sky Park. This designation recognizes Great Sand Dunes for the exceptional quality of its dark night skies and for the park's commitment to preserving and educating about the night sky.

The Alamosa KOA is just 30 minutes from the Great Sand Dunes.  We have 4 acres of open field on the east side of our campground that is also a great spot to view the night sky - and see the Milky Way Galaxy.
