Description

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. Additional acreage was added by 1906 and renamed Platt National Park. In 1976, Platt National Park and Arbuckle Recreation Area with 2,350-acre Lake of the Arbuckles and additional lands joined to form the Chickasaw National Recreation Area. Visitors to Chickasaw get two parks in one – the Platt Historic District and the Lake of the Arbuckles, where visitors enjoy swimming, boating, hiking and cycling.
