At first we only saw the small hills covered with dead vegetation. We reached the dunes and they are lovely. Had I been younger I would've rented a disc and gone "sledding." The discs for rent are sturdy, heavy-duty plastic and rent for a reasonable rate. The picnic areas were fine, with good restroom.

Going to the sandhills is always eventful. We normally take everything we need for the day and to cookout. You can rent sand boards for kids to ride. Always remember to take your sunscreen and be ready to clean your car the next day lol

This park is AWESOME. Rent a disk at the visitor's center (which hasn't been updated since the 1960s), drive to the sandhills, and enjoy! It's great exercise - I hadn't run up sandhills in a while and had forgotten that you tend to slide back a little with every step! And it couldn't be more fun! The sand is so soft and cold and beautiful. If you're a geology nerd, here's a fun fact: the sand in the sandhills are remnants from New Mexico's Rocky Mountains, eroded by the Pecos River over thousands of years and blown by winds to Texas, where you can enjoy sliding down the hills on your disk that you've covered in resin for a faster slide. If you're out in this part of Texas, this state park is not to be missed. Such a unique park! It really reminds you of the size and variety of ecosystems in Texas!

This was amazing for us. We are from India and never had been to Jaisalmer or any dessert area before. But this made us feel like that.

We stopped here on the way to Big Bend from Midland and had such a great time! We rented discs in the gift shop for a few bucks with the help of a friendly park ranger and had great luck sliding on the second set of hills. The sand was so fine and fun to just play in and we had a blast sliding too. We saw a couple interesting critters including a Jerusalem cricket and a jack rabbit. Would definitely recommend a stop here especially if the weather is nice.
