Whether you’re looking for an activity that will get your adrenaline pumping or simply seeking a quiet escape into nature, you’ll find it in Oklahoma. From hiking to rock climbing, mountain biking, fishing and birding, Oklahoma has recreation areas for every outdoor enthusiast and quiet camping spots abound here.

What is the best season for camping in Oklahoma?

The best time to camp in Oklahoma is during the spring or fall, before the summer heat and humidity kick in fully and before it gets too cool in the late fall. Weather can be a bit unpredictable in early spring, so it’s best to favor late April / early May as the start of camping season. The climate remains mild throughout September and into October, making fall a great camping season.

What are some must-do outdoor activities in Oklahoma?

The Sooner State has no shortage of outdoor adventure and recreation. Oklahoma is actually one of the most geographically diverse states in the entire United States and is one of only four states that have 10 distinct ecological regions.

The Wichita Mountains is a wonderful area to observe wildlife, hike, and camp, and region’s Bison Trail is the longest in the refuge and offers spectacular views of the lake and surrounding area. The Lower Mountain Fork River runs through the south end of Beaver’s Bend State Park located near the beautiful Broken Bow Lake. The winding river flows under towering cliffs and near gorgeous cypress trees. Beaver’s Bend also puts on a spectacular fall foliage show during the first few weeks of November.
