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 reservable 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 for all drivers and passengers to get on the sand. Passengers under 10 years old are free. Those who bring their own vehicle to Little Sahara State Park are required to follow park rules and regulations.

All vehicles must have a whip attached to the ORV that extends 10 feet from the ground to the top of the whip.

All vehicles must have a 6" x 12" flag attached within 10" of the whip's tip.  It must be bright solid orange in color.

All vehicles must have a bright white front and red rear lights powered by the vehicle for night use.
