- Little Sahara State Park
As you approach Little Sahara State Park, the red Oklahoma dirt is replaced by an unexpected sight: enormous sand dunes. This isn't your typical state park; instead of quiet hiking trails and silent sports, you'll find wild adventure and hair-raising fun for the whole family. Off-road riders come from all over the state to speed across the dunes, sailing high into the air as they crest each hill. Between rides, hike around the dunes or enjoy a picnic near your campsite. Whether you come during the heat of summer or out for a cool winter weekend, the park's remote location is ideal for disconnecting. The hamlet of Waynoka is about four miles north, and Oklahoma City lies 120 miles to the southeast.
