White Sands has ten first-come-first-serve campgrounds where you can stay overnight. So you can get night photos with no problem.

The dunes closest to the park entrance are only five minutes away. The road takes you to some bigger ones about 30 minutes away Do observe the speed limit of 30 miles per hour because they do write tickets.

There are some nature trails where you can hike for as many hours as you want, but it is not necessary to go hiking to get some good photos.

Is this within the national park? I see this from the park's website- ''Are you looking for a place to stay while you visit White Sands? Although there is no lodging available within the monument, there are plenty of places to stay in nearby Alamogordo (13 miles from the park) and Las Cruces (50 miles from the park).''  http://www.nps.gov/whsa/planyourvisit/lodging.htm

Edit- Ahhh... After looking around some more, I see that they offer primitive camping. I am guessing that if space is available I could pay the fee and go in and shoot after dark, then leave when finished.
