As Oklahoma's oldest national park area, the Chickasaw National Recreation Area has been a haven for outdoor traditions for over a century. The park had its beginnings in 1902 when the government purchased 640 acres from the Chickasaw Nation to protect the mineral and freshwater springs. Visitors will enjoy swimming, boating, hiking and cycling. Its mineral waters, streams and lakes cater to boaters, swimmers and fishermen, while its forests and prairies reward hikers, equestrians, wildlife photographers, fall foliage viewers and campers. A favorite swimming hole is Little Niagara falls.
