The park rangers here act like "Barney Fife". Weather staying in the park or in town, they will nag you about something. There are plenty of other places to go ride that you will NOT be harassed. Ask questions, even the locals realize there is a problem with them!

New Shower houses are a complete fail. I was excited when I saw that the park added and refurbed the shower houses in the campgrounds. However, after staying in the south campground this weekend (Memorial Day) I realized that nobody was using them. Everybody was waiting in line forever at the 4 shower stalls at the far south end of campground. After talking with people in line, they stated that nobody is using the new showers because they put out very little water and there is no temperature adjustment. They put out very hot water and you can't adjust! who wants to take a scalding hot shower when it's 97 degrees out! Please do something about this, as it is horrible waiting hours in line to get a shower!

HUGE dunes for off road fun. A very popular place with TONS of campsites (water & electric). If you have an off road vehicle, this is a fun place to be. Call and book a campsite early, just in case it's a busy weekend.

Great dunes for everyone, beginner to pro. Wide open spaces to tight little trails though the trees. A sure blast, day or night. Thats right, NIGHT!! So cool to experience the dunes at night.

I've been to Little Sahara 3 times now over the last 2 yrs and have
enjoyed it more than any other stsate park that I've riden at. I plan
to make another trip here next weekend and I'm sure it'll be just as
exciting as the last trip was. I look foward to coming there at least 3
times every year so I hope the park stays up and running for years to
come.

We have been going for years. Riding is always a good time but campground facility's and some of the park rangers leave more than a little bit to be desired!!! Bathroom's are always filthy, definitely want to take a camper if poorly maintained bathrooms are a problem for you. In the past 20+ years of going I haven't ever had a park ranger have such a chip on his shoulder!!! We added a 3" safety harness /lap belt in our side by side to safely secure a car seat. The head park ranger saw me and my 4yr old granddaughter driving back to camp from the t-shirt shop and stopped me. Said you couldn't mount an additional seat in a SXS... I showed him how it was mounted and he said I had to remove it. Here is the crazy part...he is lecturing me about safety and a guy drives by w/ his 3-4yr old standing up in the middle of his sxs and he doesn't say anything to him!!!! No seat belt, no helmet, no nothing!!! I am all for safety in the park but he couldn't show me any where that the rules state no after market seating?? I'm betting that 1/2 of the off road vehicles there don't have factory seating in them!!! I don't plan on camping at the south (golden sands) campground next time I go... I would also recommend if you have kids under 16 riding that you go Sunday thru Thursday vs Friday - Sunday. There are a lot of partiers and riders on the weekends and it can be scary at times. We worry the kids and us getting hit by other riders when there are so many people on the dunes.

We were simply trying to see as many of the state parks as we could and we came upon this one it looked like a lot of fun and it is very interesting. We did climb to the lookout but that's about all you can do when you don't have the proper vehicle.
To maximize your enjoyment you would probably need to have or rent an ATV.

The town is small! The people are really friendly! I like to hike and take photos. If you are into this go in the winter when there are no snakes. A lot of people take the ATVs other times of the year and I'm not really into that at all. There are still pathways for you to to walk and stay on but not throughout the entire place. Not sure if they let you walk around with all the atvs when it's busy... not sure if you would want to... So if you are going on foot... Go in the winter or a cold day without snakes.

We drove up to Waynoka and rented UTV to ride the dunes. We rented during the week in July and rode that morning. We were virtually the only people on the dunes that morning. We had a great time. The guys at Stewarts explained the polaris side by side to us and were very helpful. If you can find a hotel away from Waynoka, do it. Not much in the town and the 2 hotels are not very nice.

If you've not been to little Sahara make plans to go, Avoid real hot weather, and if you don't like crowds, or snakes, avoid the rattle snake roundup. Do call Stewarts in advance and reserve a ride if you don't have your own. I recommend a Razor side by side however if you want to ride on your own there are plenty of options. Think light and fast as staying on top of the sand is a plus as getting bogged down looked annoying! Then just head out to the dunes and let go for a bit. I was surprised at the size of the dunes as I was thinking 10 feet maybe, it's more like 50 and the place is huge. We had a blast and while it wasn't cheap and is a long ways from just about anywhere it was well worth the trip.
