Dune, San Miguel Island is a survey station established in 1934 by Robert W. Knox. It is located:

“at the highest point of the highest sand hill on the northwest side of Point Bennett. The sand hill is covered with shells. A narrow strip of sand extends to the southwest to a circular-shaped sand hill, considerably lower in height. A small semicircular core, filled with kelp lies between the two sand hills.”

The station is marked with a standard disk stamped DUNE 1934. This triangulation station appears on the San Miguel Island West topographic map. [UTM 10: North 3,769,039 East 735,678].
