Little Sahara

Little Sahara is a 4-wheelers heaven, but even if you don't have 4-wheelers (like us), it is still a place worth visiting and playing with your family. It is located about 30 miles north of Delta, UT . We went down on a cold February Saturday and it was nice to escape the inversion and snow. It was chilly, at times, but with all the climbing up and down the dunes, we were comfortable in light jackets. We brought along a picnic lunch to enjoy before heading back home. We felt that it was a fun day trip, not sure we would stay longer since unless we could take a 4-wheeler.

We had so much fun climbing up the dunes and sliding down them.

As you can see this part of the park (where 4-wheelers are not permitted) is pretty empty - we had a picnic in those shaded picnic tables. The restrooms were a life-saver, too!

The view from one of the larger dunes was beautiful in its own way.

We raced down the hill - It was a bit windy and so we had to squint often.

Even our 6 month old enjoyed sliding down on laps:

I slid down the hills with the baby in-tow. It was pretty easy to slide, but we wished we had cardboard boxes or a sled to use to go time!


The entrance road to Little Sahara is 4 miles west of Jericho Junction. From Nephi: 31 miles via SR 132 and Juab County Route 1812. From Eureka: 18 miles on US 6. From Delta: 34 miles on US 6.

$18 per vehicle for a one-day permit. Senior citizens receive a 50% discount on all Little Sahara fees.
