The park is designed for off road vehicles and ATVs. There are restrooms, ATV rentals, and RV hookups. There aren’t really any hiking trails through the dunes. The observation deck may have been above the dunes at one time, but now the sand is off in the distance. If you’ve never been to a sand dune area it’s definitely worth a visit, but watch out for ATVs! We wish the park was a little more pedestrian friendly.

Driving across the panhandle big Oklahoma I stopped at this remarkable site. It is designed for Off Road Vehicles so I imagine it would be noisy on weekends. But on a Thursday morning it was peaceful and sublime. They have an awesome observation deck and informative signs.

I just loved it.

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.

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!

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!

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.

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.
