Want to get closer to nature in Oklahoma City? Visit the Stinchcomb Wildlife Refuge, located at the north end of Lake Overholser at NW 51 and Stinchcomb Ave.
The refuge is a pristine area of 1,000 acres that has remained unchanged since before statehood.
Hiking the area will put you in close contact to whitetail deer, beaver and egrets and beautiful views of lakes, bottomland forest and marshlands. The refuge is surrounded by a hardwood forest of oak and sycamore trees and swamps and marshes.
The refuge’s trails can accommodate bicyclists or hikers. You can also rent kayaks or canoes and explore the North Canadian River/Oklahoma River through the refuge, as well as fish. Enjoy Lake Overholser while there, too. Find out more by searching “Stinchcomb” at www.travelok.com, or call 405.297.3882.
