Great Plains State Park, Oklahoma

Reserve a campsite at Great Plains State Park

 Located near Mountain Park, Great Plains State Park is appropriately named, and we learned quickly that the wind really does sweep across the plains in southwest Oklahoma.

 The park has a neat Native American history with several tribes located in the area throughout history. Situated between two of our favorite southwestern locations, Quartz Mountain Resort Park, and the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge, Great Plains is a welcome stop in between.

 Lake Tom Steed in the park has nice fishing, and adds to the relaxing feel of this quiet park. The park office was very friendly to visit with and we were told the park is usually not crowded. Great Plains State Park is surrounded by the Mountain park Wildlife Management Area.

 Great Plains Country ,as the area is affectionately known, has a nice website and you can order brochures directly from them.

 Located about 35 miles to the east, the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge is an absolute can't miss while in the area; we really enjoyed the visitor center and drive up Mt. Scott . The Buffalo and Long Horn Steers roam freely in the refuge and are very exciting to watch. Prairie Dog town inside the refuge is a fun site to see, our son really liked the little furry guys. The Holy City of the Wichita's was also a fun site to see while in the Refuge.
