Known for its over 1,600 acres of dunes, Little Sahara State Park provides an expansive and diverse landscape for guests to enjoy. Located just a few miles south of Waynoka, Oklahoma, these towering dunes found at the Little Sahara State Park have formed over millions of years thanks to the often-severe winds as well as the constant weathering of the Cimarron River.
The Little Sahara State Park caters more to the extreme side of sports, which may be why the area has a booming dune buggy and ATV community. ATV rentals are available by private vendors directly adjacent to the park, or you can bring your own. The Little Sahara State Park's desert riding is some of the best in the state and only costs $10 for a full day's access.
Kids aged 10 or younger can enjoy the dunes for free, as long as they ride along with their guardians and follow all posted rules and regulations just like everyone else. This means helmets and goggles are an absolute must. Canines and all other pets are prohibited from any of the sand tracks as they are quite hazardous. For those visitors looking to stay through the night, the Little Sahara State Park offers 143 tent sites.
These all come standard with a firepit and water hookup and the surrounding campgrounds provide wireless internet for an additional daily charge. For individuals who'd like to bring their recreational vehicles, there are an additional 83 RV sites that provide dump services in addition to full electric and water hookups. All campgrounds have bathroom and shower facilities on-site.
The Little Sahara State Park has coin-operated laundry facilities that can be found at the northern entrance to the park. If you'd like to keep your pet with you overnight, make sure they stay restrained throughout the length of your stay. While no hiking trails exist here, there is a 1.25-mile stretch of paved path that makes a loop around the park and provides access to the park's offices and concession stand.
