If you want to get away from the city for Spring Break, many of Oklahoma’s State Parks are just a short drive away. The Oklahoma Tourism and Recreation Department’s website, TravelOK.com, has a list of state parks that you can explore by selecting your areas of interest. Want a state park that offers archery and an RV hookup? Lake Thunderbird State Park in Norman is your place. What about hiking in a state park off of Interstate 40? Try Red Rock Canyon State Park in Hinton (about an hour from Oklahoma City), Foss State Park in Foss or Lake Eufaula State Park in Checotah. Yes, the options get that specific.
You can plan your perfect getaway based on your interests. The range of activities offered at state parks includes golfing, disc golf, hiking, horseback riding, swimming and even cave exploring (Alabaster Caverns State Park near Freedom).
Some areas of interest worth exploring that aren’t on the state parks’ list include the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge operated by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service near Lawton, Quartz Mountain Nature Park in southwest Oklahoma and the Tallgrass Prairie Preserve operated by the Nature Conservancy.
Get a move on, and enjoy Spring Break in Oklahoma.
