Description

A prime example of Oklahoma's diverse terrain, Little Sahara State Park boasts over 1,600 acres of sand dunes, ranging in height from 25 to 75 feet. The vast dunes have formed over time from terrace deposits, remnants of prehistoric times when the Cimarron River flowed over the entire area. Located south of Waynoka in northwest Oklahoma, the park offers amenities such as 86 RV sites with water and electricity, 143 tent sites, picnic areas and showers. Concessions are offered in the park seasonally, and groceries and fuel are available nearby.

The main attraction at Little Sahara State Park is dune buggy and ATV riding across the sand dunes. Visitors can either bring their own ATV or rent one off-site by a private vendor. Either way, visitors will have a blast in this mini-desert atmosphere, known as one of the best riding spots for ATVs in the Midwest.  The cost is $10 a day per driver to enter the dunes.  Those who bring their own vehicle to Little Sahara State Park are required to follow park rules and regulations.

Chet, it's entirely possible to ride from the motel in town to the park. Please keep in mind that while on the trail, ATV riders must follow all the rules as motor vehicle drivers. Riders must follow the orange stripe on the trail and can ride only one in a lane in low gear not to exceed 10 miles per hour. Riders can be on the trail for no longer than 30 minutes after sunset. The trail is co-managed by the City of Waynoka and Little Sahara State Park. The park itself is open 24 hours a day. For more information, please call either the park office at 580-824-1471 or city hall at 580-824-2261. Best wishes and thank you for using TravelOK.com!

Is there a trail to ride from the campgrounds to the motel in town? If so, are there restrictions on when you can ride the trail? Thanks!
