Sandhills State Park


News Brochures Photos

More sand than many deserts! Located on the north edge of the Hutchinson Dune Tract, Sand Hills State Park is a rolling sand prairie displaying hues of red, yellow, gray, lavender, and green. Dunes formed by wind-deposited sands from the Arkansas River at the end of the Ice Age have been stabilized by the roots of the sand prairie grasses.


Sand Hills State Park, a 1,123 acre natural area, has been preserved for its sand dunes, grasslands, wetlands, and woodlands. Popular activites at the park are hiking and horseback riding. Other activities include hunting, bird watching, wildflower walks, jogging and just simple relaxation in the country. There are 8 distinct trails within the park which are broken down into interpretive, hiking and horseback riding trails. There are 14 miles of trails which weave in between 10 to 40 feet high sand dunes, through grasslands and trees, and around ponds. Modern facilities are limited to two vault toilets.
