Named for a Cherokee word meaning "sweet water,” Waynoka is a western Oklahoma gem. Home of Little Sahara State Park, this area is a great example of Oklahoma’s diverse landscape where visitors are treated to over 1,600 acres of sand dunes ranging from 25 to 75 feet high. Bring your own off-road vehicle or rent one nearby and drive it right to the park. Little Sahara State Park also offers over 200 campsites, picnic facilities and seasonal concessions.

Those looking for a helping of history will find it at the 1910 Harvey House and Santa Fe Depot. This complex houses the Waynoka Air Rail Museum, which is located on the BNSF main line and has 50 to 100 trains that pass by daily. Another unexpected eatery in Waynoka is Cafe Bahnhof, an authentic German restaurant where you can feast on schnitzel, bratwurst and all the ice cold beer you can drink. Be sure to snag a reservation, because this popular spot fills up fast.
