A prime example of Oklahoma's diverse terrain, Little Sahara State Park is located four miles south of Waynoka in northwest Oklahoma and boasts over 1,600 acres of sand dunes, ranging in height from 25 to 75 feet. The vast dunes have formed over time from terrace deposits, remnants of prehistoric times when the Cimarron River flowed over the entire area during the Pleistocene Age. This makes for extremely fine quartz sand.

The main attraction at Little Sahara State Park is dune buggy and ATV riding across the sand dunes. Visitors can either bring their own ATV or rent one off-site by a private vendor. Either way, visitors will have a blast in this mini-desert atmosphere, known as one of the best riding spots for ATV's in the Midwest. There are specific requirements for those bringing your own ATV.

The two RV Gypsies went to Woodland, Oklahoma to explore Boiling Springs State Park.

Boiling Springs State Park is a park built in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps and located near Woodward, Oklahoma and named for one of the several natural springs which occur in the park.

Behind the cabins, the two RV Gypsies saw a pond with boiling springs, but it was not the main boiling springs the park is famous for. There were a couple of small areas within the pond that were bubbling.

After looking at the above map of the park, the two RV Gypsies finally found the boiling springs that the park is famous for.

The water was so clear that the two RV Gypsies could see through to the bottom of the pond. The gray spot in the corner is where the water was bubbling. It was not an easy spot to photograph, but it is clearer in the close-up photo on the right. Every minute, about 30 gallons of water flow from the Boiling Spring.
