As of the Spring of 2017, there are 42 Oklahoma State Parks. We are hoping to visit all of them just as we are trying to visit all of the Texas State Parks.  Please follow us as we mark parks off our list!

 


35.  Osage Hills State Park


36.  Lake Eufaula State Park (formally Fountainhead State Park)


37. Arrowhead Area at Lake Eufaula State Park


38. Hugo Lake State Park


39.  McGee Creek State Park & Natural Scenic State Recreational Area – Atoka, Oklahoma

This was such a pretty park with the pine trees.  As you may remember, Scott and I do love the pine covered areas, and it was so green from all the rain they were getting.  We were very impressed with how clean and organized this park with.  There was never any question as to which direction the roads were going in the camping and RV loops. Unfortunately, the lake is a bit low, but it was still a pretty, pretty park.

We were also pleased to locate the McGree Creek Natural Scenic State Recreational Area just to the north of the park.  This is one of those places that has been left as wild as possible so that it can be enjoyed and explored.  There is a specific way you have to register to enter the area because it is such a large space. We were able to make a video of our adventure here.

41.  Beavers Bend State Park – Broken Bow, Oklahoma

We were on our way home in January from our Eureka Springs trip when we decided to stop and take a break. We found the lake to be down, but it was still very unique in its scenery. The rocks on the shoreline seem to be chert, but I have not been able to validate this information at this time.  Because we have been interested in the Ouachita Mountain range, this area is of interest to us.

42.  Talimena State Park – Talihena, Oklahoma

 

Talimena State Park was our first state park in Oklahoma and it was on complete accident.  We were headed towards the Talimena National Scenic Drive and we drove right past it.  It was definitely not a huge park, but it does have what you need to enjoy your stay along the Winding Stair Mountains.  There are only 10 RV sites and 7 official camping pads, but there are ATV trails, hiking paths, and lots of pines providing shade.
