Awe inspiring view and a unique hike! I really enjoyed romping over the dunes in bare feet and my toddler loved tottering around. It was good for her to have some dry sand to play in after visiting the beach. The breeze didn't quit and even under hot sun we didn't overhear. Watch for wildlife (my husband spotted a 5ft snake crossing our path in one of the wooded areas) and don't forget to hydrate! Public restrooms and drinking water at the visitors center. Hang-gliding is pay to play but free to watch. Looks like lots of fun!

I did the Kitty Hawk Kites Hang Gliding basic flight course. The dunes are perfect for this activity with soft sand to land in. It was overcast the day we were there so the sand was cool. But if the sun is out it will get very hot. The facilities the Park Service provides with the visitors center and restrooms are nice. There is a rinse station to get the sand off before you get back in your car.

I love this state park. You can pretend you are in middle of desert. At evening, many people go there for enjoy to take shoes off and play any games, take families pictures, and relax watch sunset. Bring your kite and it has great breeze.
