Beverly Sand Dunes OHV Area

A relatively small dune area of 300 acres with some small hills and bowls. A lot of dirt mixed in with the sand, so it can be dusty.

Some excellent long soft sand areas so you can open it up and get some speed going.

Not bad for a day trip or if you’re in the area, but very limited terrain and not very challenging. Good for beginners. Basically, don’t go out of your way to ride Beverly Dunes.

Moses Lake Sand Dunes are only 1 hour NE of the Beverly Sand Dunes and well worth the extra drive. 3,000 acres vs. 300 acres!
