Explore Oklahoma’s 38 State Parks
As the state warms up, it's only natural you'd start thinking about brushing off the cold and getting back out into nature. If you're hesitant, don't be... Spring in Oklahoma may be a little dramatic with tornadoes and thunderstorms, but it's the prettiest season we have.
With warm days and cool-to-cold nights, it's prime camping season for those in the tent crowd. If you drag around your own RV, you're good to go any time of the year. If you need a little luxury, there are plenty of Oklahoma campsites that offer glamping in hipster/trendy air-conditioned things called yurts.
If you prefer fishing, the Oklahoma lakes are just now starting to stir from the winter lull. Fish are starting to feed again in preparation for the spawn, and the clear waters make for easy pickings.
Even if you'd rather take the 4x4 and go off-road, Oklahoma has several state parks specifically for that! Some allow trucks and Jeeps, others limit to just motorcycles and ATVs, but there are options from mild to wild... The sandy dunes of Little Sahara to the technical rocky outcrops of Disney, it's primetime for Oklahoma's outdoorsman.
Some state parks are just so big, we've had to break out into the various different areas they offer--looking at you Grand Lake--and several big lakes have more than one designated park area. Pick one and go see it this year.
