We spent several months staying at Monahans Sandhills State Park and we miss it, greatly. We enjoyed the office staff, they are all super friendly. The whole family had a blast sliding down the dunes and going for long walks. We can't wait to visit again in the future. Monahans also has some good restaurant choices. Great area!

The wife and I took a try at the sand sledding. Didn't have good luck with getting any speed - it is not like sledding on snow. Just another item checked o the Texas Bucket List. The park ranger suggested that winter time the sand might be more cooperative or in the morning. We were there in the hottest part of the afternoon. The geography was something new. Overall something good to try if you are passing through. The museum on site was educational.

I have always wanted to see these dunes. We arrived around sunset, but the visitor center was closed and really the dunes weren't much. Little kids might enjoy sliding down them, but there is not much for adults to do.

My husband and I are retired and live in the small town of Monahans, TX, a short drive west of the Sandhills State Park. We visit this lovely natural area nearly every day of the year. No matter what time of day or season of year, this area can provide the tired taveler with a peaceful, relaxing break in stark contrast with hectic I-20. Almost, as soon as you exit the freeway you will begin to enjoy a sense of quiet that is the nature of this place. The dunes are beautiful, the sky is big and if you're respectful of the speed limit there's typical west Texas wildlife to be seen along the winding road that passes between the dunes...roadrunners, jackrabbits, cottontails, hawks, owls, javelina, coyote, mule deer, and if you are very lucky an occasional bobcat. Your visit is what you make it. You can climb the dunes, sit in the shade at covered picnic tables, walk or jog the roadways or take out a folding chair and view the magnificent star filled night sky. The camp sites provide basic services but can accommodate everything from a tent to a very large luxurious bus.

This is a great place to see and experience if you've never seen sand dunes but I highly do not recommend visiting in the summer months. If you do, go at cooler times of the day and take plenty of water! The sand was extremely hot as to be expected and made for a less than enjoyable experience. They have discs you can rent for $3 each.
