Transitioning from a national monument to a national park, White Sands National Park protects the largest gypsum dune field in the world. Park managers and friends of the park work toward public access and maintenance of the solitude and silence of the dunes.

Located in southern New Mexico, the park is located outside of the city of Alamogordo. The White Sands Visitor Center and Dunes Drive is off U.S. Route 70 between Alamogordo and Las Cruces.

Dunes Drive is an 8 mile road into the dunes.
