FILLMORE  —  With Easter weekend fast approaching, the Bureau of Land Management and state agencies are preparing for the onslaught of thousands of visitors to Utah's Little Sahara Recreation Area.

The 60,000 acres comprise one of the state's premier dune fields featuring free-moving sand dunes and a 700-foot mountain of sand. The recreation area outside of Delta is open for camping, water will be turned back on and the William R. Fullmer Visitor Center will have extended hours.

Passes for the 2013 season are on sale and are good for 12 months from the date of purchase, with the cost of the first vehicle pass at $120. The second vehicle pass is available for $65. Passes may be purchased at the recreation area's visitors center and at the BLM field offices in Fillmore and Salt Lake City.

For more information call 435-743-3100.
