Trail Photo

Little Sahara Recreation Area offers 124 square miles of sand dunes that includes Sand Mountain, a 700' challenging hill climb, several OHV trails and four large, RV accessible campgrounds. The White Sands Campground offers two of the world's largest sandboxes that are actually fenced off play areas for children.

The Rockwell Natural area is located in the northwestern section of the recreation area and is off limits to motorized use. Whip flags are mandatory and can be purchased on site for a small fee. Three-day holiday weekends are very popular, especially Easter weekend, which can attract up to 20,000 people.
