Waynoka - Little Sahara State Park


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.

Great place to ride. The bathroom could use some work but other than that you will have fun camping and riding. The rules of the park help keep out the rough people while providing a safe place for your family to ride.

Fun for all ages. Dunes, trails, whoops, etc. Just have to hope the wind isn't blowing too hard or it can get miserable. It's like heaven if it's windy at night and then you get in the dunes early the next morning before they get all tore up with everyone's tracks. It's certainly not heaven if the wind is blowing 30mph during the day. Expect to be shocked by the amount of people who don't value their brain enough to wear a helmet.

It was better than expected but park ranger was overly zealous because our flags were 6 inches too short made us go into town to buy other ones. There were at the most three or four other vehicles there. Not crowded, but he was insistant. So there went $50 additional money spent for two hours riding. Talking to the locals he is well known. They call him barney fife.

Amazing place for Engagement or Wedding photos!! Just watch out for flying four wheelers! Hahaha Also you need to permit to shoot out here. And they definitely make sure to enforce it!

We have been coming here for 40 years. Love it!!! They have raised the price to get on the dunes. Whether you are a driver or a rider, anyone over the age of 10 will pay $10 per day to get on the dunes. The observation lookout is really neat. Only thing we would like more, is if they had more pull through camp facilities!
