Heber Dunes Recreation Area is open to the public during daylight hours only. Camping is strictly prohibited. Visitors to this space must note that the entry gates are locked as nightfall approaches, so care must be taken to strictly observe the park's hours as they are enforced.
This public area is open at no cost to enjoy the premises. Dogs are welcome to join their owners, however, they must remain on a leash. Bathrooms are housed on the grounds, and they contain running water, toilets, and coin-operated showers. Here, owners can obtain drinking water to help keep Fido's thirst at bay. Heber Dunes Recreation Area formerly housed a range for recreational shooting and was also a hotspot for hunting and games of paintball. Today, those activities are no longer permitted on the premises to assure the safety of those enjoying the grounds on recreational vehicles. There are a few on-site amenities for families to enjoy. These include ramadas, picnic tables, and barbecues. Hiking and biking are allowed on the trails, but owners must keep a careful eye to avoid a collision with an off-highway vehicle.
Owners must bring clean up bags with them from home to assist them with cleaning up after their pets as is required by California state law. Additionally, all dogs are to be properly immunized and in possession of a current city dog license tag. Looking for an interesting new place to explore?
