Unlike dunes made of quartz-based sand crystals, the gypsum does not readily convert the sun's energy into heat and thus can be walked upon safely with bare feet, even in the hottest summer months. Children frequently use the dunes for downhill sledding. Four marked trails allow one to explore the dunes by foot. During the summer, there are also Ranger-guided orientation and nature walks. The park participates in the Junior Ranger Program, with various age-group-specific activies. Damage is not done to the dunes - as they are constantly being shifted and shaped by the wind anyway. But the plants are carefully protected.
