Natural Falls State Park, Oklahoma

Share the Adventure:


While still setup at Devil’s Den in Arkansas, we decided to drive an hour and a half to visit Natural Falls State Park in Oklahoma.  The park itself is surprisingly small, but you can quickly see why it was turned into a state park via a 2 minute walk down a paved trail:
Dripping Springs Waterfall
(Tropfenden Wasserquellen Wasserfall)
 

A small dam a little ways past the falls.

The main waterfall is 77ft tall and tied for the tallest in the state.  Also, interestingly enough, it turns out that “Where the Red Fern Grows” was filmed here.  It’s funny because the gift shop seems to try and capitalize on that more than anything else.  They even have a “Red Fern Reunion” room in the visitor center…
All in all, a worthy side excursion, but once again we spotted a thunderstorm moving in on us and decided to retreat back to the car and head “home.”  We spent the rest of the day relaxing inside our trailer while listening to the rain pound down on our roof.
