Sound like a day at the beach? Well, actually, the sands at the Hot Well Dunes Recreation Area were a beach surrounding a lake approximately two million years ago. What remains today offers one of the most unique recreation spots in Arizona. Where else does the opportunity to ride in sand dunes and soak in relaxing hot tubs exist at the same location? However, please be considerate of your neighbors who may not be here to participate in the same activity as you. This is the only way this area will continue to be available to have fun in the sand, sun, and water.
