Water, water everywhere! There’s tons to explore here at Chickasaw National Recreation Area, and the water throughout the park is a huge draw to visitors. Check out over 20 miles of hiking trails—you’ll pass lots of springs, streams, lakes, and waterfalls. Want to cool off? Get a good workout in? Catch your dinner? Just sit back and enjoy the views? You can do it all! Visitors often spend the day waterskiing and swimming in cool waters of Lake of the Arbuckles. Into fishing? Launch your boat and cast a line for bass in Veterans Lake. There are lots of historical sites in the park, so you can get your learn on! The beautiful Lincoln Bridge was built in 1909, and the stone Leeper House was built in 1894 and used as a family residence, and later as a meeting place for court officials who settled Indian land claims. The Bison Pasture is pretty cool, too. The bison you’ll see today are descendants of the six bison brought here in 1920. The best place to catch a glimpse of these large creatures is in the afternoon from the viewpoint on Highway 177. Check it out!
