Little Sahara State Park, with 1,450 acres of sand dunes ranging in height from 25 to 75 feet, offers the perfect playground for off-road vehicle enthusiasts, mixed in with some fascinating history.

The dunes originated over 11,000 years ago from terrace deposits and quartz left by the Cimarron River when it flowed across this area during the Pleistocene Age. Floodplain deposits left by the present-day river also contribute to the changing formations. This makes for a very, very fine quartz sand.
