North - Remote location. Extends along S shore of Lake Athabasca. Aircraft access from Uranium City, Stony Rapids and Fond du Lac.

Stretching approximately 100 kilometres along the south shore of Lake Athabasca, the Athabasca Sand Dunes is the largest active sand surface in Canada. With outstanding scenery, dunes as high as 30 meters and a unique ecosystem that's rich in rare and endemic (only found here) plants, scientists consider the dunes an evolutionary puzzle. In order to protect the fragile environment, the park has been divided into three management zones. Each has different guidelines to govern camping and visitor activities. Guidelines may change as required and are available by contacting the park office. Collecting plants, trees, venifacts and artifacts within the park is prohibited. Fishing is allowed.

This park is accessible by float plane only and recommended for experienced wilderness users. As there are no onsite services located within the park, visitors must check with a conservation officer prior to visiting the area. Guided tours by licensed outfitters are available. Independent visitors must be fully equipped for self-contained wilderness travel and be aware of the potential hazards as well as their responsibilities in protecting this fragile environment. Pack out what you pack in. Open year round.
