  • Halloween Weekend 2022

    Halloween weekend kicks off dune season at Dumont Dunes Oct 29-30 weekend. Although the official holiday is Monday the 31st, Halloween night at Dumont is Saturday night, Oct 29th. This is the night you'll find trick-or-treaters going camp to camp and duners in costume over at Comp Hill having a good time. There has not yet been any word of a truck or treat at vendor row, but the original tradition of decorating camps and kids/ families trick-or-treating has never stopped. Halloween weekend always brings out thousands of excited duners which means we always have to take a little extra caution. Keep your head on a swivel but most importantly slow down around camps and other duners. Holiday weekends can be a little crazy and chaotic, but also safe and fun at the same time.

    Halloween Checklist
    First things first, you will need a holiday weekend or holiday season pass for Halloween weekend. But after you pick up one of those and have the toys ready, it's time to get in the Halloween spirit!



    BLM Introduces Option To Purchase Passes Online

    The Bureau of Land Management Barstow Field Office has implemented a much more convenient way to purchase your Dumont Dunes pass. You can now go to Recreation.gov and get your pass online before you even head out for the season.  The fees will remain the same. There is a small service fee, but the total still comes to the same for the pass.
    Purchase on Recreation.gov:
    NOTE: Here is what you can do if you purchased a pass through recreation.gov and they sold you a pass with the incorrect (last years) dates.
    Per the BLM, all season passes receipts will be honored and exchanged for the 2022-2023 season. They are still trying to figure out the system. No need to worry about a refund. As long as you have your receipt that you paid through recreation.gov, BLM will exchange for a hard copy season pass at the gate.
    For those who have not purchased a season pass but plan to buy yours through recreation.gov, I would wait until October 1st to purchase. Hard copy season passes will still be available through off-site vendors sometime over the next few weeks.
    Dumont Dune Annual pass season is Oct. 1-Sept. 30
    Weekly passes are $30 
    Non-holiday annual pass is $90 
    The annual pass that includes holiday weekends is $120   
    The holiday weeks are:
    Halloween: Oct. 25 - Oct. 31, 2022
    Thanksgiving: Nov. 22 - 28, 2022
    New Year's: Dec. 27, 2022 to Jan. 2, 2023
    Martin Luther King Jr.: Jan. 10-16, 2023
