In this way, can you swim at Bruneau Sand Dunes?

The state park includes desert, dune, prairie, lake and marsh habitat with opportunities to observe nocturnal species. Activities include fishing, birdwatching, camping, hiking, swimming and viewing the stars at one of only two public observatories in Idaho. Feel free to climb but no vehicles are allowed on the dunes.

Beside above, why are there sand dunes in Idaho? Dunes form only when sand encounters a soft surface or obstacle that prevents it from blowing away. The St. Anthony Dunes began to form when the sand reached the weathered mass of the Juniper Buttes, extinct volcanoes. Each individual dune forms a curve, with ends pointing northeast in the direction of the wind.
