CHICKASAW STATE PARK

 

THE FUN’S JUST BEGUN.

Spend the day catching rays and floating down the side of a mountain in crystal clear cold natural spring water.

A 77-foot waterfall carved out of the mountains. One of Oklahoma’s best fishing lakes. Fine gourmet chocolate. The story of a rich cultural heritage. More than 30 miles of hiking trails.

Start the day at the top of the mountain in the water and never get out as you work your way down navigating waterfall after waterfall. At the end of your journey “Little Niagra” awaits! 

An Oklahoma Oasis

Springs, streams, lakes – whatever its form, water is the attraction at Chickasaw National Recreation Area. Relax in the coolness of shaded streams or take a dip in a swimming hole. Little Niagara and Rock Creek beckon waders and swimmers. Veterans Lake calls anglers to test their skills. Lake of the Arbuckles provides excellent opportunities for motorboating, skiing, fishing, and swimming.
