Description

Jockey's Ridge State Park is a state park that includes the tallest active sand dune system in the eastern United States. The park is a day-use only park and has no campgrounds.

Tips for Families

For summer visitors: The sand on the dunes is incredibly hot during the summer months. On average, the sand will be 25 to 30 degrees hotter than the air temperature, so when it's 95 degrees, the sand will be 125 degrees.
