Alabaster Caverns State Park, Oklahoma

Located near Freedom, in the Northwestern part of Oklahoma is Alabaster Caverns. The Park has a lot to offer to those who love not only Caves & Bats, but those who like peace and quiet from the crowds.

Alabaster Caverns is best known for being the largest public gypsum cave in the United States, and tours run regularly which are a MUST do. We have always seen and taken nice pictures of the little bats inside the cave, and with a newly added lighting system the cave is colorful and cool all year round.

The Selman Bat watch is also an absolute must see in a lifetime experience, more information is available on the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife's website. The Selman Bat Watch departs from Alabaster Caverns State Park and Reservations are required to attend.

One of our favorite areas is located behind the park office, it is a canyon area with some of the best hiking trails around. The adventurous can also reserve the "Water Cave" to actually sleep in and with the proper equipment people can explore a "Wild" caving experience to go where few other have gone before. (a list of equipment required is available from the park office).

The RV area is nice with site number 10 the best of them all with nice shade and seclusion from the rest of the group. The tent area is also very nice with a small stream near by for the soothing sounds of water.

Show Caves of the United State of America has a nice write up on Alabaster Caverns.
