Along I 20 in far west Texas past Odessa and hours before El Paso you will come to the small town of Monahans. Once a booming oil town it is a great place to stop to gas up, grab a bite to eat, and go sledding. That’s right, sledding. In addition to a wonderful visitors center, and campsites, Monahans Sandhills State Park has, of course, Sandhills. You can rent a disk at the headquarters to sled the dunes.
We went in August, it was hot, we had fun but it was hot! As for the campsites they are right on next to the dunes, take a broom with you if you are camping here. You will get you share of sand in your RV and in your vehicle. It is a small park but spread out. The staff was great and they have a great park office.
