Offering activities from rock climbing and hiking to dune buggy-driving and horseback riding, Oklahoma’s state parks are a natural choice for outdoor adventure. However, if your aim is more relaxation than recreation, you’ll find plenty of that, too. Many of our parks boast forests nestled in mountain foothills or lakes and rivers far from city life, creating the perfect, peaceful retreat. Camp, climb, hike, go horseback riding, scuba diving, spelunk, or spend the night in a lodge. Whatever your interest, your Oklahoma outdoor adventure awaits. Get started on your Oklahoma State Park getaway now.

Remnants of eons of erosion, the rugged red dirt mesas and canyons surrounding Alabaster Caverns State Park remind visitors that nature is always at work.

However, the park’s most famous and impressive landforms lie below the surface. The tunneled wonderland of varicolored alabaster and selenite caverns is the result of nature’s work begun over 200 million years ago. Presently, Alabaster Caverns is the largest natural public gypsum touring cave in the world. Above ground or below, this distinct Oklahoma destination provides a picture-perfect retreat for guests. Note: Guided tours begin daily on the hour from 9am-4pm. Each tour has a maximum of 40 visitors and a fee is charged. Group discounts are available; reservations must be made at least two weeks in advance. Educational Programming

Alabaster Caverns offers a Watchable Wildlife Weekend in May and the Selman Bat Watch every Friday and Saturday in July. Please call the park for more detailed information.

Surrounded by wooded foothills and waterfront views, Arrowhead State Park is an ideal setting for a relaxed, low-key trip. The park, located within the Choctaw Indian Nation, sits on a prominent peninsula of Lake Eufaula.

CAMPING D IRECT ORY

Golfers will enjoy Arrowhead’s challenging 18-hole course with spectacular views of the lake and campers will enjoy the peacefulness of the park. Arrowhead Stables, also located in the park, offers horses for rental and 25 miles of trails through oakhickory forests and rolling hill terrain. Hiking and biking trails also are scattered throughout—a great way to take a break from your busy life and re-energize your body and soul. On the trails, visitors might catch a glimpse of the park’s native inhabitants: deer, wild turkeys, and rabbits.

BEAVERS BEND Of 34

“Beavers Bend park is a hidden gem. It is by far one of my favorite places to visit. Beautiful river, mountains, trails everywhere. Be prepared to be surrounded by God’s country in all its splendor. Fun for all ages with a mini train and horse rides for the little ones.” Winding roads lined with tall pines and blackjack oaks guide visitors into Beavers Bend State Park.

The park sits at the verdant, densely wooded base of the Kiamichi Mountains and offers a plethora of activities from fly fishing to float trips and eagle watches to golfing (for more information on the course, see page 94). The park is comprised of two areas—the lake area and the river area. The lake area, which lies along Broken Bow Lake, treats campers and guests of Lakeview Lodge to spectacular sunrises over the lake and peaks of the Kiamichi Mountains. In the river area, the Lower Mountain Fork River flows through the campgrounds and past log cabins, where the overall sense of peace and seclusion is enhanced by the sound of flowing water and the ability to hike along the river. Begun in 1937 as a recreational area for the public as part of President Roosevelt’s New Deal, the pristine wilderness and well-kept facilities have made Beavers Bend State Park one of Oklahoma’s most popular. Educational Programming

Beavers Bend State Park offers programming including nature walks and creek habitat walks along the Mountain Fork River. Visitors also will find unique dioramas at the Forest Heritage Center Museum that tell the story of prehistoric forests, Caddo Indians, paper-making in the South, 1940s lumbering, and forest appreciation. The center partners with the park to host several festivals throughout the year. Programs include movies under the stars, craft-making, campfire programs, night hikes, and winter bald eagle watches. Please call the park office for more detailed information.

Entering the grand expanse of Black Mesa State Park is like entering an ancient, yet timeless world.

ACTIVITIES

Located in the Oklahoma Panhandle, twenty-three rare plant and eight animal species inhabit this area where sky stretches into eternity. Panoramic vistas of the park and its surroundings are best viewed from the state’s highest elevation point, 4,973 feet above sea level, which is reached by hiking a 4.2 mile trail to the top. The nature preserve, operated in conjunction with the park, consists of approximately 1,600 acres. Visitors can hike and explore lands once claimed for Spain by explorer de Francisco Vasquez de Coronado and where the Rocky Mountains meet shortgrass prairie.

ACTIVITIES DIRECTORY

Fun Fact

Black Mesa is named for the layer of black lava rock from a now-extinct volcano, which coated the mesa more than 30 million years ago. This region also contains the fossilized remains of dinosaurs from the Jurassic and Triassic periods, which date back as far as 250 million years.

“Beautiful! I would live there if they would let me. We go every summer!” Often referred to as an oasis on the plains, Boiling Springs State Park captures one of the finest elements of Oklahoma nature: a haven of quiet in the midst of windswept plains. The park is one of seven original state parks built in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps and was named after a natural spring that still flows. The park’s namesake attraction is showcased in a wooden shelter and interpretive center near the park office. This is a popular spot for deer and turkey watching and is a convenient weekend escape for those staying or living in nearby Woodward. With plenty of open space to throw a Frisbee and several different hiking trails leading through the woods and to the river, Boiling Springs is a natural attraction in the northwest part of the state.

GLOSS MOUNTAIN 10 Of 34

Rising starkly out of relatively flat surroundings, the multi-hued Gloss Mountains in western Oklahoma make this state park one of Oklahoma’s most treasured. The Gloss Mountains, sometimes called the Glass Mountains, have a high selenite content that mimics a shiny glass exterior. The layers are the result of a gigantic inland sea that once covered western Oklahoma and the Texas Panhandle. As this sea dried up, large beds of selenite gypsum were laid across the area. Bright flashes of the buttes, which can still be seen today, inspired the area’s name. One legend has it that part of the first exploring party was British and upon glancing at the mountains in the early morning light, the visitor noted they looked just like “glaws.”

Though there is no lodging or camping in Gloss Mountain State Park, there are plenty of hiking trails and picnic areas to enjoy from sunrise to sunset. The spectacular scenery makes this a truly unique Oklahoma state park. One of the mountain’s popular trails runs from the parking lot to the top of Cathedral Mountain and across the mesa, offering an unbeatable view of the valley floor and Lone Peak Mountain. Miles of prairie floor stretch out as far as the eye can see, broken up only by the native red dirt and sparse green shrubbery. Buzzards and eagles loom overhead, while lizards and insects scurry underfoot and over the rocky terrain. Fun Fact

Selenite was used for windows in early sod houses.

GREAT PLAINS

Of 34

“Second time here and love it. It is very peaceful.” In the midst of a landscape over half a billion years in the making, Great Plains State Park is located in an area characterized by ancient granite mountains, rolling plains, and shortgrass prairie. The tall rocks, cliffs, and rugged land give this park a unique appeal and provide a panoramic view of southwestern Oklahoma. Visitors to Great Plains can camp and relax in the shadow of the Wichita Mountains, hike the nature trails, enjoy Tom Steed Lake, or explore the nearby Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge, home to approximately 650 bison. Fun Fact

A town in this area was once called “Wildman.” Famous for saloons and gambling houses, it was a tough place made up of miners and gamblers with a seasoning of bandits. It’s said that the first diggings developed in Wildman were graves.

Great Salt Plains boasts the only spot in the world where people can dig for hourglass-shaped selenite crystals.

ACTIVITIES

Adjacent to the park is one of Oklahoma’s most unusual geological phenomena—salt flats, which are literally a sea of salt left over from an ocean that covered Oklahoma in prehistoric times. While searching for crystals, visitors can look for more than 300 species of protected birds that live in the refuge. Golden and bald eagles, as well as thousands of waterfowl, are among the refuge’s yearly residents. And while there’s plenty more to do at Great Salt Plains State Park, visitors also should wade in the shallow waters of Great Salt Plains Lake, which is about half as salty as the ocean.

LAKE MURRAY

18 Of 34

Often described as Oklahoma’s Yellowstone, Lake Murray State Park welcomes visitors with a forest of shade trees and limestone-lined roadway. As the lake comes into view, sand beds at the shoreline fade gently into pristine aqua waters and visitors become acutely aware that this is one of Oklahoma’s most treasured places.

The park’s beauty is more than skin deep. Established in 1935 by the Civilian Conservation Corps, Lake Murray was Oklahoma’s first state park and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Take time to explore the park’s more than 12,500 acres, where the Corps’ historic handiwork is still visible in the remaining structures. Not to be missed is Tucker Tower, which was originally planned as a summer getaway for then-governor William H. “Alfalfa Bill” Murray. Today, the tower serves as a museum dedicated to the history of the park and the CCC. The new nature center at Lake Murray, located at the base of Tucker Tower, offers visitors a hands-on, self-guided opportunity to learn more about the park and environment. Educational stations and displays are prominently located throughout the building. A large classroom is available for groups of all ages, with instruction from the on-site naturalist and staff.

The sheer immensity of the park makes it an ideal locale for outdoor activities of all sorts, including boating, swimming, scuba diving, fishing, golfing, camping, horseback riding, hiking, and biking. Off-road vehicles are also permitted in a designated area of the park. Fun Fact

LAKE TEXOMA

Just as the name implies, Lake Texoma straddles the border between Oklahoma and Texas, but it is known coast to coast as the “Striper Capital of the World.” Sand and white bass, largemouth bass, flathead, channel, and blue catfish, spotted and smallmouth bass, and white and black crappie are also plentiful.

Located 121 miles south of Oklahoma City and 75 miles north of Dallas, Texas, Lake Texoma is home to the Hagerman and Tishomingo National Wildlife Refuges where deer, bobcats, and wild turkeys live in their natural habitat. Depending on the time of the year, birdwatchers can spot multiple species of migrating waterfowl, including Canada geese, ducks, and bald eagles. One of the nation’s largest reservoirs, Lake Texoma is visited by more than six million people each year—and not just during the summer months. The moderate climate (with an average high of 65 degrees in November) makes this an ideal location for fall and winter getaways when fish are fewer but fatter and bald eagles glide overhead. Educational Programming

The Two Rivers Nature Center features displays on various wildlife as well as local geology and fossils. Please call the park for more detailed information.

A visit to Osage Hills State Park in the fall offers extra beauty as the thick foliage transforms from green to vivid shades of yellow, orange, and red. Multiple trails on the rocky, hilly terrain provide a challenge to hikers and mountain bikers and may provide a glimpse of white-tailed deer or wild turkey. Tennis courts and a ball field are available to visitors and the swimming pool provides a great way to cool off on a hot day. Fishing also is a favorite activity in Osage Hills State Park. Anglers can test their skills and try their luck at Lookout Lake or at Sand Creek, which winds through the park. Bass, crappie, catfish and sunfish, among other fish, can be found.

ACTIVITIES DIRECTORY

Red Rock Canyon, an excellent example of nature’s lengthy work, dates

CAMPING D IRECT ORY

back 270 million years to when an extensive and relatively shallow sea covered the western part of the state. Over millions of years, dunes were transformed from sand and mud into rock and then shaped by erosion to become the rugged sculpture you can see today. Before the mid-1800s, Plains Indians used the canyon as a winter camp. Game was abundant, the water was pure and clean, and it was an escape from the cold prairie winds. Later, the canyon became a landmark on the California Road and served as a haven for weary travelers heading to California in search of gold. Today, instead of bringing a covered wagon, visitors enjoy this western Oklahoma spot with climbing, hiking, biking, and fishing. And while the scenery is always lovely, the foliage in the park puts on a show from mid-October through the first part of November. The native Caddo maple tree is especially stunning—producing deep shades of red, orange, and yellow.

ROBBERS CAVE 29 Of 34

Robbers Cave State Park is located in the scenic, hilly woodlands of the San Bois Mountains of Southeastern Oklahoma. Robbers Cave was established in 1935 and

is one of seven original Oklahoma state parks built by members of the Civilian Conservation Corps. The cave itself lies in a formation of sandstone mountains that vary from 300 to 1,500 feet in height. Due to its secluded location and proximity to the Texas and California roads, legend has it that Robbers Cave was a hideout for outlaws such as Jesse James and Belle Starr, who fled law enforcement and were avoiding capture. The park and adjoining wildlife management area are favorite stops for outdoor lovers of all kinds, offering in-season trout fishing, hunting, miles of hiking and equestrian trails, and rugged cliffs for climbing, rappelling, and viewing fall foliage. Educational Programming

The Robbers Cave Nature Center offers animal displays including lake and small stream habitat aquariums, native snakes of Eastern Oklahoma, an insect and frog display, and a touch-and-feel table with furs, animal skulls, and bird nests. The gift shop sells park memorabilia. Heritage Hall, also located in the nature center, details the history of the area with displays in an interpretive hallway. The center hosts educational activities for student groups grades K-6 as well as a “practice� archeological dig. Please call the park for more information or to schedule events for individuals or groups.

KARSTEN CREEK GOLF CLUB Semi-Private – Open to the Public Golf Digest quickly named Karsten Creek the “best new course” in the United States after its opening in 1994. Tom Fazio’s designs carved away a forest of oaks and black jack trees for the zoysia fairways, and built an undulating terrain to flow around the 110-acre Lake Louise. Named for PING golf club founder Karsten Solheim, the 7,400-yard, par-72 course serves as home to the Oklahoma State University golf teams.

Disc Golf

FLYING DISC with the precision of golf Combining the agility of a flying disc with the precision of golf, disc golf is a happy hybrid that appeals to outdoor enthusiasts of all ages. As in traditional golf, the object

is to complete each hole in the fewest throws. However, in disc golf, the “hole” is a basket on a pole, and strokes of the golf club are tosses of a disc. Seven of Oklahoma’s state parks offer the sport with an eco-friendly twist: Baskets, or “re-tires,” are made from recycled tires and manufactured here in Oklahoma.

Courses at the state parks are open year-round and have discs available for either rental, purchase, or both. Pictures, current conditions, basket details, ratings, and reviews for these and more than 60 other disc golf courses across the state can be found on discgolfcoursereview.com.

SEQUOYAH

NATURAL FALLS

Located adjacent to the 18-hole Sequoyah Golf Course, this disc-golf course plays the same doglegs, winding fairways, and lakeside holes as the traditional golf course for moderate difficulty. Moreover, it benefits from the amenities of golf, like excellent landscaping, benches at every tee, shade boxes, and golf carts—which are recommended, as at more than 16,000 feet this is the longest disc golf course in Oklahoma, and possibly anywhere.

This 18-basket course is split into two difficulty levels. The first nine holes are on a smooth, short-grass area and considered easy. The rear nine, located beyond the bridge overlooking the park’s 77-foot waterfall, wind through tall grasses and timber for a more challenging game.

The Perfect Picnic Foods

EATING OUT Oklahoma style The sun on your face, a breeze rustling through the leaves, the weight of a thick, hearty deli sandwich between your fingers— one of the best ways to enjoy nature is as simple as lazing on the grass with a picnic. Take along an all-Oklahoma menu to make your outdoor experience even more delicious. BEVERAGES

Triple “AAA” Sodas

Although Triple “AAA” Soda disappeared from the landscape in the 1970s, this regional favorite is back thanks to Justin Thomas at Oklahoma City’s Bricktown Candy Company, who worked with Triple “AAA” creator Harley Rochau’s family members to duplicate the original1930s flavors. Purchase Triple “AAA” Root Beer, Cherry Soda, and Cream Soda online or at Bricktown Candy Company’s locations in Oklahoma City or Arcadia (405/600-9009 or tripleaaasoda.com).

deVine Water

People line up for the cold, crystal-clear water that pours from the “Artesian Well on Highway 11” near Cherokee, available at no charge to the public when collected from the source. Fortunately, you don’t have to make the drive; look for the bottled equivalent, deVine Natural Artesian Water, at twenty locations across Oklahoma, including Whole Foods in Oklahoma City and Tulsa (580/ 626-4420 or devinewater.com).

THE MAIN COURSE What’s the secret to a perfect picnic sandwich? Lay slices of Schwab & Co. Bologna—whose smoky, garlicky recipe goes back a hundred years—on hearty slabs of artisanal, handmade European breads from Prairie Thunder Baking Company. Dress up your sandwich with the spicy-sweet tang of Seikel’s Oklahoma Gold Old Style Mustard, which creator Steve Seikel says is “the only mustard I’d eat with a spoon” (Schwab & Co.: 405/235-2376 or schwabmeat. com; Prairie Thunder Baking Company: 1114 Classen Drive, Oklahoma City or prairiethunderbaking.com; Seikel’s Oklahoma Gold Old Style Mustard: 405/842-2174 or okmustard.com). If grilling is your picnic passion, be sure to take along Bar-S Classic Franks, made right here in Oklahoma and sold nationwide. Also, try the natural, pasture-fed flavors of Wichita Buffalo Company for your buffalo burgers, available at fourteen stores across Oklahoma (Bar-S Foods: bar-s.com; Wichita Buffalo Company: 405/542-6015 or sandyspringsfarms.com).

MEERS STORE A former miners’ store and current seismic observatory, the Meers Store is a “must-do” for those visiting Medicine Park or the gorgeous Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge.

Enjoy such “mining camp traditions” as fried corn on the cob, homemade chili, and fried green tomatoes (580/429-8051 or meersstore.com). SODA STEVE’S Not every dining room has a red 1920s cast-iron tub centered underneath a sparkling disco ball, but then again not every restaurant has its roots in mission trips to India, Vietnam, and South Africa. Executive Chef Steve Pool’s spot at the Lake Tenkiller Fin and Feather Resort offers unique dishes from hot fudge nachos to a Monte Cristo sandwich, and more than a dozen burgers like Glo’s Sweet Hot Burger with cream cheese, grilled jalapenos, maple bacon, and sweet Thai chili sauce (445889 Hwy. 10-A, Gore, 918/487-9812 or sodasteves.com).

PENNINGTON CREEK - Tishomingo

Pennington Creek winds through private property before emerging in the picturesque Pennington Creek Park near downtown Tishomingo. This clear stream is home to blackmouth bass, sunfish, and catfish, and easy access makes it ideal for kids and novices learning the basics. More serious fishermen come out each spring for the annual run of white bass, also known as sand bass (580/371-2369).

THE BLUE RIVER - Tishomingo

One of Oklahoma’s most scenic fishing locations offers a wide variety of fish habitats formed by granite exposed over thousands of years, including six-foot-high waterfalls, fast-moving riffles, and deep, slow-moving pools. Channel catfish, black bass, and sunfish are plentiful, and trout anglers enjoy more than six miles of running streams stocked weekly from November through March (TravelOK.com).

MCGEE CREEK STATE PARK - Atoka Deep pines and rolling hills flanking the Ouachita Mountains surround this famously rich fishing ground for largemouth bass, flathead catfish, and crappie. Considered one of the state’s best trophy lakes, McGee Creek attracts its share of tournaments (580/889-5822 or TravelOK.com).

Fall marks the Green Corn Ceremony, a harvest and renewal ritual considered the most important annual event in eastern Native American culture, and experts believe that the Spiro mounds were designed to line up with sunset during the autumn equinox (918/962-2062 or okhistory.org). TALIMENA SCENIC DRIVE - Talimena Oklahoma’s premier fall foliage drive winds through 54 miles of the Ouachita National Forest, cresting mountaintops to reveal a breathtaking vista of color as far as the eye can see. Scenic turnouts offer plenty of stops, and traversing the nation’s highest point outside the Appalachian and the Rocky Mountain ranges will lead you through charming communities decked out for autumn visitors (talimenascenicdrive.com). BOILING SPRINGS STATE PARK - Woodward The rich fall hues of the heavily-wooded Boiling Springs State Park in Woodward are among the last before the clean lines of the Plains to the north

and west exert themselves for hundreds of miles. The park’s cold, bubbling springs produce upwards of sixty gallons of water per minute. Continue northeast along State Highway 50 and stop for an equally awe-inspiring, underground visit to the Alabaster Caverns, the largest natural gypsum cave in the world (580/256-7664 or TravelOK.com). WICHITA MOUNTAIN WILDLIFE REFUGE FALL FOLIAGE WALK Indiahoma This guided, one-mile hike will lead you through Hollis Canyon’s chinquapin, red cedar, post oak, and black jack trees to discover an oasis of blazing sugar maples. Be sure to call in advance to save your spot for this popular November outing (580/429-2151 or friendsofthewichitas.org). KIAMICHI TRACE - Broken Bow Oklahoma’s Highway 271 parallels the Kiamichi Trace, a path formerly followed by Native Americans traveling between the Red and Arkansas Rivers, according to legend. The highway route winds through southeastern Oklahoma’s stunning pine forests, alongside rushing rivers, and across mountains that will be steeped in autumn jewels (580/317-9388 or TravelOK.com).

Blue-Green Algae

What you need to

KNOW

Oklahoma is a water lovers’ paradise, but lakes & rivers are complicated ecosystems susceptible to environmental conditions.

The nation’s bodies of water have experienced an increase in the growth of Blue-Green Algae. Below are safety information and tips on these microscopic organisms: Blue-Green Algae (BGA) are microscopic organisms naturally present in reservoirs, lakes, and streams. They are usually found in low numbers, but in very warm, shallow and undisturbed waters that receive a lot of sunlight, BGA can become abundant. Within a span of just days, a clear lake or pond can become cloudy or deep green with algae growth. This is called a bloom. In a bloom, BGA may look like thick pea soup or bluish, brownish, or reddish-green paint. Do not swim, boat, ski, play in, or ingest water that looks like the above descriptions or that has a scum layer or puffy blobs floating on or near the surface. BGA may cause a variety of reactions, usually upper respiratory problems, eye irritation, vomiting, and diarrhea. A smaller quantity of toxins may trigger a more severe effect in children than in adults. Other symptoms include a rash, hives or skin blisters, stomach cramps, diarrhea, vomiting, headache, fever, muscle weakness, or difficulty breathing. If you experience any of these symptoms, contact your doctor or the Poison Control Center at 800-222-1222 immediately. Pets and livestock are particularly susceptible to the harmful effects of BGA. If you think your pet may have been affected, call your veterinarian right away. Whether or not you see BGA, take a shower after coming into contact with surface water to wash away any potentially harmful bacteria. Remember these important words: IF IT’S GREEN ON TOP, STOP! To find out more information and check lake conditions, please visit CheckMyOKLake.com.

Water Safety

S TATE PAR K S

Water-Safety Tips to

PAR K S DIREC TORY

REMEMBER Water recreation can be the cornerstone of any outdoor vacation. However, it also presents various hazards, especially for children. Read through our water safety tips below and keep everyone safe in the water.

ACTIVITIES

Protect yourself by avoiding water that is foamy, scummy, or discolored. Avoid swimming in polluted or algae-affected water. Swim in safe or designated swimming areas only. Always swim with a partner! Know your limits and don’t push yourself beyond your natural swimming capability. Always watch children when they are in or near the water. When children are swimming in outdoor bodies of water, a life jacket is always recommended. Avoid swallowing water while swimming. Shower before and after swimming, and make sure to wash any cuts and scrapes with clean water and soap. Check the local weather conditions and forecast before swimming or boating. Drink plenty of fluids. It’s easy to get dehydrated when you’re in the sun all day. If you start feeling dizzy, lightheaded, or nauseous you’re probably dehydrated. Drink fluids and seek medical attention immediately. Diving injuries can be severe, so check the water’s depth before you dive in and identify any hidden rocks or other hazards, even if you plan on leaping in feet-first. If you are boating, everyone should wear a Coast Guard-approved life jacket. In Oklahoma, all vessels must carry one wearable flotation device for each person onboard and all children under 13 years of age must wear their life jacket at all times. Be aware that alcohol and boating do not mix. One third of boating deaths are alcohol-related. Only 3.2% alcohol is legal on Oklahoma lakes.
