Buttercup Campground, Imperial Sand Dunes is located on the southern tip of the dunes.  The major part of the Imperial Sand Dunes stretches northward from this point.  This is open, dry camping.  Pick a spot out near the dunes.  Be cautious to not camp in deep sand and not near dune buggy trails.  The Buttercup camping area is near the Buttercup Ranger Station.  Pay your fee at the ranger station.  It's a weekly fee.  You can't pay for just one day, wine week is the minimum.  There are no services near Buttercup so, bring everything you will need including fuel, water, and food.  

The primary session for camping and off-roading in this area is October through March.  The rest of the year is generally to hot and the heat drives campers out of the area.
