Lying smack at the heart of the USA, Oklahoma boasts some of the country's most diverse natural landscapes. It's hard not to fall for the rugged mountain ranges, 200 lakes, and wide open prairies—not to mention the state's rich Native American history. Looking for outdoor adventure? Hiking trails, tent camping, canoeing, whitewater rafting, and horseback riding are all within your grasp. With 35 unique state parks to choose from, Oklahoma has plenty of starting points for your next camping trip. A 90-mile drive from Oklahoma City brings you to Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge. Hikers can spot bison, elk, and prairie dogs before exploring Mount Scott—a rock climber's paradise. Red Rock Canyon is another popular choice, known for its pet-friendly trails and rappelling adventures. For lakefront tent camping and canoeing, you can't beat Broken Bow Lake and nearby Beavers Bend State Park. Fish the streams for trout, or rent a paddleboat to watch a famous Oklahoma sunset over the water. In southern Oklahoma, you find Chickasaw National Recreation Area, where hiking trails bring you to waterfalls and mineral springs perfect for swimming. You can even launch a boat on Lake of the Arbuckles, one of the best fishing spots in the state. To camp under the shade of mighty pines, head east to Ouachita National Forest. Most state park campgrounds have tent sites and RV sites with all your creature comforts. Think picnic tables, fire rings, grill boxes, and nearby flush toilets. However, most sites are first-come, first-served, so be sure to nab your spot early. RV parks and private campgrounds are also in rich supply. With around 300 days of sunshine annually, Oklahoma is a great place to camp year-round. That said, the best time to go is spring and fall if you want to avoid the Southern summer swelter. Just remember to pack some layers for those chilly mornings
