The Little Sahara sand dunes, located in the northeastern part of the Sevier Desert in western Utah, lie within the northern half of one of Utah’s largest dune fields (about 220 square miles). These rolling dunes are comprised of free-moving sand dunes, sagebrush flats, and juniper-covered hills. Elevation 5000 - 5400 feet. Administered by the Bureau of Land Management, Little Sahara Recreation Area is mostly devoted to off-road vehicle use. Campgrounds can be found at Jericho, Sand Mountain, Oasis, and White Sands. Group camping is available at Sand Mountain. There is a daily use fee. Annual permits are also available.
