Sandsurfing the Sand Dunes at Monahans Sandhills State Park

Less than five miles east of the West Texas town of Monahans you will find what is likely the best sandsurfing location in Texas.

Monahans Sandhills State Park.

Sand Tobogganing also takes place on the Monahans Sandhills. Along with many other sand hill related fun, such as Sandhills Football.

In Monahans Sandhills State Park you will find sand dunes up to 70 feet high.

Monahans Sandhills State Park is 3,840 acres in size.

Inside the park you will find an unusual oak forest, one of America's largest, consisting of Harvard Oaks which seldom grow taller than three feet, but which have roots growing as deep as 90 feet into the sand in search of water.

After a fun day of sandsurfing you can stay in the state park. There are campsites and RV hookups.

In the nearby town of Monahans you will find many of the national fast food franchises, along with BBQ, Tex-Mex and buffet restaurants.

Below is a map of Monahans Sandhills State Park from the good folks at Texas Parks & Wildlife.
