Open year-round, this area consists of dunes and several trails that wind through sagebrush and juniper trees. Camping is permitted and is primitive however future plans for the area consist of installing BBQ grills, trashcans, shelters and picnic tables. Whip flags are required and a permit must be filled out before arrival, which can be obtained by contacting the Spokane BLM office. The first two miles of Peterson Road is located on private property and permission must be obtained from the local landowners.
Outside of the wilderness area, the primary recreational activity at Juniper Dunes is OHV use in the “Open” area. Other associated uses include picnicking and camping, and some hiking, horseback riding, and hunting are done as well. Helmets, safety flags on whip masts, and current state registration and tabs/stickers are required on all OHVs. Although Juniper Dunes is open to the public, portions of Peterson Road (the only access road into the area) are privately owned. Public access is contingent on the willingness of adjacent landowners to permit the public to cross their property to reach the BLM public lands. The BLM, Franklin County, and various other partners are working to establish formal public access into Juniper Dunes.
