Description

***NOTICE*** To check on possible Oklahoma State Park closures over Memorial Day weekend, please click here.

Located near the Oklahoma/Arkansas border in the scenic Ozark Highlands region of northeast Oklahoma, Natural Falls State Park features a 77-foot waterfall cascading through rock formations and creating a hidden, serene atmosphere at the bottom of a narrow V-shaped valley. A railed observation platform allows hikers to overlook the falls and another observation deck with seating is located at the foot of the falls offering two vantage points to enjoy one of the most scenic wonders in the state.  The beautiful scenery looks familiar to many visitors because scenes from the 1974 movie, "Where the Red Fern Grows" were filmed in the park.

Is there swimming allowed and are there cabins for rent ?


From TravelOK.com Staff on 05/20/15

Jessica, all the tent sites are considered primitive and do not come with any hookups. However, you are welcome to set your tent site up on an RV site, but please be aware that you will be paying slightly more, since the fees are based on the site's amenities and not the sleeping unit. If you have any questions, please call the park office at 918-422-5802. Thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From Jessica on 05/20/15

Ok, thanks for answering my question. Now, I have another one. Do the tent sites have electric hookups?


From TravelOK.com Staff on 05/19/15

Celeste, all the tent sites are available on a first come, first serve basis only. However, you are more than welcome to reserve an RV site and set your tent up on it. Thank you for using TravelOK.com!

In addition to your tent, you can also set up a child's tent for your dependents under 18 years of age at no additional cost. You are more than welcome to reserve an RV site for your tent, but please keep in mind that you'll be paying a bit more. For online RV site reservations, please use the green button at the top of this page. Happy camping and thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From jonathan Gann on 04/29/15

Are the tent site first come or can they be reserved? Also is it one tent per site? Thanks


From TravelOK.com Staff on 04/27/15

GiGi, although the falls are the highlight of the park, they might prove difficult to get to for anyone with mobility issues. To view the falls from below, you will need to navigate down somewhat steep cement steps. There are hand rails, but the steep grade both up and down might still be difficult. The parking lot at the falls would be the best choice for anyone with mobility issues. It is easily accessible, and there is an overlook about 100 yards from the parking lot that looks down over the falls that is much easier to navigate. For more information, we recommend that you contact the park directly at 918-422-5802. Thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From GiGi on 04/24/15

Can you get to falls without it being a long and rough hike?


From TravelOK.com Staff on 04/17/15

Marla, you cannot swim at the falls, but there is a popular swimming hole at Flint Creek just a couple miles away. You can reserve a site up to one year in advance by using the green 'Book Now' button at the top of this page. That booking site will show the amenities at each site, so you'll be able to find just what you're looking for. If you have any other questions, please call the park office at 918-422-5802. Have a great day and thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From Marla Marlow on 04/17/15

We are thinking of coming in July. Since we will be bringing grandchildren with us, their concern is swimming. Any swimming areas close by? How early is too early to reserve a spot or two? Big rig 39' ft fifth wheel pull thru 50 amp full service site requested.

From TravelOK.com Staff on 03/25/15

David, at this time, the 17 tent sites at Natural Falls State Park are available on a first come, first serve basis only. It's impossible to tell you if the sites will be full the weekend you'd like to visit, although you are more than welcome to call the park staff and ask them at 918-422-5802. Your best bet for a guaranteed site is to book an RV site and set your tent up on it. Online booking is available by clicking the green 'Book RV Campsites' button at the top of this page. Please keep in mind that you'll be paying a bit more, since the prices are set according to site and not the sleeping unit. Happy camping and thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From David on 03/24/15

We have a tent and we live in Kansas City. We wouldn't want to drive all the way down there only to find out that there are no tent sites available. Do the tent only sites normally fill up on weekends and if so would you recommend a reservation? Thanks!


From TravelOK.com Staff on 03/24/15

Stephanie, the only sites that visitors can reserve are RV sites. Those sites must be reserved at least five days in advance. However, you are more than welcome to reserve an RV site and place your tent on it, just know that you'll be paying a bit more since the fees are charged per site and not per sleeping unit. Sorry for any confusion! When in doubt, feel free to reach the park office at any time by calling 918-422-5802. Thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From Stephanie on 03/24/15

I've read contradicting information in the comments and would like some clarity. I've read you can reserve a campsite as long as it's 5 days in advance and I've read you are only able to reserve RV spots in advance. Which one is correct? Thank you!


From TravelOK.com Staff on 03/24/15

John, sorry, there are no places to kayak at Natural Falls State Park. To see a list of kayaking locations in Oklahoma, please visit www.travelok.com/canoeing_kayaking_and_rafting. Thank you for using TravelOK.com!

Do you know if the premium tent sites get full towards the end of June?


From Sheila S on 03/24/15

Can you tell me if the tent sites have access to electricity? or should I reserve a rv site. we just want to be able to air a mattress and have a little lamp if possible.


From TravelOK.com Staff on 03/24/15

Tayler, at this time, all tent sites at Natural Falls State Park are on a first come, first serve basis. To double check how full the sites are, you are more than welcome to call the park office at 918-422-5802 before you head out. Regular tent sites are $12 per night and premium sites are $17. One option you might be interested in is reserving an RV campsite by using the green 'Book RV Campsites' button at the top of this page. Keep in mind that you'll be paying a bit more since you're paying for the site (whether or not you use the hookups) and not the sleeping unit. Happy camping and thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From Tayler Fultz on 03/24/15

Also, I want to come at the end of June but I have to ask off work and so does my boyfriend, are there limited premium tent sites?


From Tayler Fultz on 03/24/15

Do I need to reserve a tent site? I want a premium tent site, I saw something about premium tent sites are along the waters edge? And if I get a premium tent site would it be $17 a night? I want to stay for 2 nights and 3 days.

From TravelOK.com Staff on 10/08/14

Melissa, the area has had sufficient rainfall, and there's currently a good amount of water flowing at the falls. Just to clarify to future visitors, while the main waterfall has dried up in drought conditions, the lower springs never have, so despite the time of year your drive will be worth it. If you have any questions, please call the park office at 918-422-5802. Have a great day and thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From Melissa on 10/08/14

I was planning a trip for this weekend to surprise my boyfriend. Is the water flowing before we make this long trip?


From TravelOK.com Staff on 10/06/14

Tiffany, thanks for your interest in visiting Natural Falls State Park. Depending on the weather conditions, the falls could be starting to freeze over during that time, although it's still a beautiful sight to see! We'd recommend that you call the park office closer to your visit to check on the conditions. Their number is 918-422-5802. Have a great day and thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From Tiffany on 10/05/14

Are you able to view the falls in the off season, about mid-December? I am not from around Oklahoma, but will be planning a getaway in mid December, and just was wondering what the falls were like around that time of the year? Thank you!


From TravelOK.com Staff on 09/29/14

Ron, although the falls are the highlight of the park, they might prove difficult to get to for anyone with mobility issues. To view the falls from below, you will need to navigate down somewhat steep cement steps. There are hand rails, but the steep grade both up and down might still be difficult. The parking lot at the falls would be the best choice for anyone with mobility issues. It is easily accessible, and there is an overlook about 100 yards from the parking lot that looks down over the falls that is much easier to navigate. For more information, we recommend that you contact the park directly at 918-422-5802. Have a great day and thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From TravelOK.com Staff on 09/29/14

Kathy, you can see a map of the park and the individual campsites under the 'More Information' section on the right side of this page.

From TravelOK.com Staff on 08/06/14

Justus, the fishing area is stocked regularly with bass, perch and catfish. There are no trout. Also, the fishing area is catch-and-release only.

Fork River and Medicine Park. Of those options, the Illinois River is closest to Natural Falls State Park. For directions, please use the map feature at the top of this page.

From MustangMissy on 03/21/14

Clean camping grounds and nice people. For experienced hikers who enjoy variety in trails that lead to an array of experiences and breath-taking views go a little further into Arkansas. This would be a nice lay over. One nice day to hike, explore, have a picnic and play frisbee golf into the trails. I wouldn't spend more than a day here. It is pretty, don't get me wrong. It's nice for beginning hikers. Really don't need equipment, except possibly a hiking stick for the bear trail.

We just called Natural Falls State Park, and they told us that there is no gate that closes at the camping area, so you can drive in to set up at night and pay in the morning. If you're just looking to see the falls area, you'll need to get there before dusk. If you have any questions, please call 918-422-5802. Best wishes and thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From Jacquelyn on 02/25/14

We are wanting to drive down there in a couple of weekends, but won't be able to make it on property until about 9. Is that too late to get in?

From Chad on 11/12/13

How often is the fishing area stocked? Or maybe a better question would be, when was the last time it was stocked?


From TravelOK.com Staff on 10/16/13

Ross, the fishing area is stocked regularly with bass, perch and catfish. There are no trout. Also, the fishing area is catch-and-release only. If you have any questions, please call the park at 918-422-5802. Have a great day and thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From Ross Crutchfield on 10/15/13

What fish are in the fishing area? Is it stocked regularly?


From TravelOK.com Staff on 10/14/13

Bill, each RV site has a firepit, and you are more than welcome to have a fire as long as there is not a burn ban in effect. There are currently no bans in Oklahoma, but we recommend that you double check before your trip by visiting www.forestry.ok.gov/burn-ban-information. Have a great trip and thank you for using TravelOK.com!

We usually list that information on each state park's page around the end of October. Please give the park a call at 918-422-5802. Have a great day and thank you for using TravelOK.com!

Daughter and I must have been on Fox Den trail. It was very challenging but rewarding.


From JUDY HOFFMAN on 09/25/13

WOW!!!! Have told many friends about the park. Daughter and I took a wrong turn and were on ghost coon trail. what a hike back up the hill. Ended up at the river, cool, peaceful. Picnic tables and benches. No highway noise and no mosquitoes. Picnic area and restrooms were very clean in the park. Great Saturday afternoon!!


From Linda on 09/11/13

Do you let vintage campers/trailers in your campground. some do not because of the age. When I say Vintage I am talking from the 50s 60s and 70s. Most without bathrooms, but with holding tanks for kitchen water. Could we have a vintage camper show in your campground and take donations as an entry fee from spectators? Money collected would be donated to our charity of choice, casting for recovery. I would love to host a vintage camper/trailer event here regardless of the anwer to being able to have a show.


From TravelOK.com Staff on 09/10/13

Jacob, the area by the falls consists of a boardwalk and platform, and the closest location to picnic is about 150 yards out. If you have any questions, please give the park a call at 918-422-5802. Have a great day and thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From Jacob Grimm on 09/09/13

From Susan on 07/27/13

From TravelOK.com Staff on 07/23/13

Dwayne, although the falls are the highlight of the park, they might prove difficult to get to, especially for elderly persons or anyone who might have mobility issues. To view the falls from below, you will need to navigate down somewhat steep cement steps. There are hand rails, but the steep grade both up and down might still be difficult. The parking lot at the falls would probably be your best choice. It is easily accessible, and there is an overlook about 100 yards from the parking lot that looks down over the falls that is much easier to navigate. As for the rating of the trail, it’s moderate to difficult, depending on mobility of each individual. For more information, we recommend that you contact the park directly at 918-422-5802. Have a great trip and thank you for using TravelOK.com!

Carrie, please contact Natural Falls State Park at 918-422-5802. Thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From Carrie Gill on 07/22/13

I would like to reserve a camping spot in your park in mid September.


From Dwayne Hunt on 07/20/13

How close can you drive to the falls and then how far is the walk? Thinking about bringing the family down for a day but some of the older folks can not walk real far. If any walking distance is required how would you rate it, easy, moderate, experienced hikers only? Any information you can provide would be helpful.


From TravelOK.com Staff on 07/11/13

Brandon, we just spoke with the park staff who have alerted us that the excess rainfall earlier in the year followed by all the heat has caused the most popular swimming area to be covered in moss. Currently there is an area just above the foot bridge that visitors are still welcome to wade in, but it is very shallow. We would suggest giving the park a call at 918-422-5802 before you visit to check on the conditions. Best wishes and thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From Brandon on 07/10/13

Do you know if there is still water in the creek/river downstream from the Falls this time of year, for swimming? If so, is it clean/safe to swim in? Have never been here, but would like to take our kids for a day hike and swim if possible.


From TravelOK.com Staff on 07/01/13

Perla, unfortunately Natural Falls State Park does not offer any rental cabins, only RV and tent campsites. The entry fee into the park is $4 per car. If you have any questions, please call 918-422-5802. Best wishes and thank you for using TravelOK.com!

From Mike on 05/29/13

is there swiming available we are wanting to take our kids this weekend


From owner on 05/29/13

@Michael- Our tent sites are $12 per night


From Michael Boice on 05/29/13

i was wondering what it cost to rent a tent site


From niki on 05/24/13

if you rent a tent site area be prepared to camp with people you dont know. they dont reserve spots just guarantee that you get one! so your on top of each other. get there early or get the worst spot! to bad so sad is their policy.


From stan wilson on 05/20/13

One little quirk we recently discovered-- there is an open wheel racetrack about a mile to the north. They race every Saturday nite from about 7 to midnight. The night we stayed, they ran until 12 thirty. Loud, whining, revving engines. So if you're expecting a serene, peaceful evening with the sound of the wind rushing through the treetops and crickets chirping in the distance, you'll be in for a surprise. Make no mistake, though, we had a GREAT time there.


From Jessica Smith on 05/14/13

This park is really beautiful. The falls are absolutely breathtaking especially after a good rain.


From owner on 05/13/13

Sabrina-We have a small creek side swimming area designated down stream from the falls above the catch and release fishing area. It will be open after Memorial Day.


From sabrina anderson on 05/11/13

From shyan on 04/23/13

From Amber Lemon on 04/22/13

My family and I just spent the weekend out here and had an amazing time. The falls were beautiful and all the trails were fun to hike. Great place to take pictures. The tent grounds were nice and clean as well as the playground areas. Our family, myself and husband, 10 yr old and 6yr old, hiked all the trails, even the difficult Fox Den trail. We can't wait to come back to stay!


From owner on 04/10/13

GK-I told you that I would pass the information along to the park manager and he will decide, but that usually if it is within 5 days of your arrival that a rain check is issued. I noted that you did not want a raincheck. The park manager will be contacting you when he gets back.


From GK on 04/10/13

I would advise anyone not to make reservations at this park. I notified them 24 hours in advance due to weather I could not be there. I was told tough we can,t refund, because we would lose money. Pretty bad attitude.


From owner on 03/25/13

Melissa- The $4 is for day visitors only. Our camping rates are $12 for tents and RV sites start at $20 and go up to $28 per night. We do take reservations. Just give us a call at 918-422-5802.

Betty- We would love it if your group could stop for a picnic lunch. There is an entrance fee of $4 per vehicle up to six people per vehicle .75 cents per person over the six or if you are traveling in a bus we charge $15 per bus.


From Melissa Mooney on 03/24/13

My family and I are looking for a place to go camping. I am a photographer so I, naturally, look for a place with diverse wildlife and beautiful scenery. You have been highly recommended by several friends. I noticed that you entry fee is $4 per vehicle. Does that include overnight camping or is there an additional fee? I look forward to hearing from you.


From Betty on 03/23/13

I have a church going to Eureka Springs and we wanted to see about having a picnic lunch on June 4

From Forrest Herters on 09/21/12

So, rangers, what is the small shrub that had the small orange flowers?

From Bill Orton on 09/04/12

Dear Rangers, I was there on Monday, and asked about the name of the shrub with small orange flowers. Some can be seen at the left of the platform at the waterfall base. I wonder, were you able to identify this plant? Thank you, Bill


From TravelOK.com Staff on 08/31/12

Chris, Natural Falls is a great park for camping so give the park a call in the morning to check with them about available sites. Best wishes and thank you for visiting TravelOK.com.


From chris on 08/31/12

Never been does anyone think there will be tent sites left by tomorrow morning?


From Les Pulliam, Park Manager on 08/29/12

We are getting lots of calls concerning the burn ban, it is still in effect. The statewide ban exempts compressed propane stoves and tabletop charcoal grills provided they are on a concrete surface, such as our picnic tables and are at least 5 feet from any combustible. You will still be liable for any resulting fires so be cautious. None of our grills meet this standard so you must bring your own. We are also suggesting electric skillets and crockpots - get inventive for your Labor Day campout.


From Les on 08/28/12

Labor Day Weekend - new activities in the park will be available. Bring your trunks to try out our swimmin hole in the creek, hike in only. Also be ready for our brand-new disc golf course. We have the front nine holes in and will have discs available at the park office. All RV sites have been reserved for the weekend, but we have lots of tent sites available as well as day use passes.


From TravelOK.com Staff on 08/20/12

Becky, unfortunately Natural Falls State Park only offers RV and tent camping sites. However, if you expand your search to Jay, Eucha or Tahlequah, you'll find plenty of rental cabins. Check out our 'Hotels and Lodging' page from the yellow bar above. Happy travels and thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From Les on 08/20/12

Becky, sorry but we do not have any cabins available. There are hotels nearby in Siloam Springs or there are many private camps with cabins nearby on the Illinois River. Feel free to call for more information, 918-422-5802. Have a great camping fall.


From Becky on 08/19/12

are there any cabins to rent in the park or nearby?


From Les on 08/10/12

Coming soon to the park, DISC GOLF. We are working on an 18-hole disc golf course to be open sometime this September. Bring your discs and play or we will have rentals at the park office.


From TravelOK.com Staff on 07/27/12

Sandie - There is a small $4.00 per car parking fee by the park office -OR- a 75-cent fee per person.


From Sandie on 07/25/12

We'll be driving through that part of Oklahoma on the way to a conference and thought it might be fun to pull in and check out the park because we may want to camp there some day. Does a person have to pay a fee just to take a peek?


From Les on 07/10/12

Jpo. The falls are flowing. With the drought conditions the flow is reduced, as is normal in July and August. We do recirculate the water from the lake area with a pump, however, even without this effort the lower springs drip and fall out of the bluff year-round, hence our historic name Dripping Springs. Since there was already Dripping Springs State Park, near Okmulgee, this park was called Natural Falls State Park. The primary purpose of our facility is to conserve this beautiful, natural area in the Oklahoma Ozarks.


From Jpo on 07/09/12

Searching for waterfalls in Oklahoma and wondering is this a natural waterfall? Does it flow all year round? Will late July 2012 be worth the trip to see the waterfall or will it be a trickle or worse yet dried up? Thank you!


From TravelOK.com Staff on 06/29/12

Anna, the day use fee for Natural Falls State Park is only 4.00 per carload of up to six people. Hiking, volleyball and other recreational activities that you can enjoy at the park are all free.

Was just a small kid back in the thirties, one night returning from someplace with parents man with lantern, raining, stopped us and told us the road had disappeared. Just back of the barn. Remember we had a long detour. Canyon had formed. Ground dropped. Have always wondered where this occured....South of Cherokee, Oklahoma. 1932-or so or later. Was a deep and long canyon with creek in the bottom... to early after subsidence to have trees, etc.

If you have any more questions, please feel free to contact the park directly using the phone number or e-mail address above. The park's staff would be more than happy to answer questions and help to make your visit a great one! Thank you for using TravelOK.com and enjoy the fall break.

Is the park open at the beginning of November? My husband and I want to go there for our one year anniversary and it looks so nice!!


From TravelOK.com Staff on 09/28/11

Bear, yes pets are allowed in the state parks as long as they are kept on a leash no longer than 10 feet, supervised at all times and cleaned up after. Have a great time at Natural Falls State Park and thank you for using TravelOK.com.


From Bear on 09/27/11

Are pets allowed?


From Les Pulliam, Park Manager on 09/26/11

We have 4 and 1/2 miles of hiking trails at Natural Falls. Some are accessible, paved and some are natural surface, difficult trails. If you would send me your email to naturalfalls@oklahomaparks.com, we would be happy to send you a trails map.


From Chelsi on 09/25/11

How long are the hiking trails in the park?


From Les Pulliam, Park Manager on 09/22/11

You can reach the park at my email, or at naturalfalls@oklahomaparks.com. Our phone number is 918-422-5802, and yes, the phones are working. We are busy with reservations this time of year, if busy, keep trying!


From Melissa on 09/21/11

Can I please have the email for someone in the Park Ranger's office at Natural Springs State Park. I do not use Outlook which is the program that automatically pops up when you click the 'email' button. I am in Environmental Biology this semester and need to do an ecosystem lab. It will require spending about an hour with a park ranger and wanted to see if I needed to make an appointment. I have been there before several times and loved it but I have never talked to the ranger.


From TravelOK.com Staff on 09/15/11

Chandra, we're sorry for the inconvenience with the phones. We were able to contact Natural Falls State Park and did verify that as of right now, camp fires are allowed! You'll have a great time at such a gorgeous park and thank you for using TravelOK.com.


From Chandra on 09/15/11

Does anyone know if you can have campfires currently? From the map it looks like there is no burn ban in this country but I'd like to confirm. All I get is a busy signal with the phone line. Thanks!


From Meg on 09/12/11

Btw, that last comment goes to Sarah. Not to the rest of you all. I think this place is beautiful as well!


From Meg on 09/12/11

If you hated this place so bad, then why do you keep visiting this site and posting negative comments. What a waste of time to be so negative.


From Les Pulliam on 08/08/11

The falls are flowing! Of course, with the drought like weather they are slower than other times of the year, but still beautiful. Catch a cool morning and come see them


From Jena on 08/08/11

This looks gorgeous! I'm thinking about coming out for a day trip to hike with my kids. I'm sure they'd love to see the waterfalls. How is the drought affecting them? Are they still flowing?


From hosein on 08/07/11

Excellent!


From TravelOK.com Staff on 07/27/11

Julie, yes there's a popular swimming hole at Flint Creek just a couple miles away. Be sure and ask the park staff for more information. Have a wonderful time at Natural Falls State Park and thank you for using TravelOK.com.


From Holly on 07/26/11

The dirt track has closed, so that's no longer a problem on Saturday nights.


From Julie on 07/24/11

Is there a place to swim nearby? City pool, water park, etc.? What are the races I've read people refer to? We might want to check that out. Thanks!


From Gayle on 07/23/11

If you are in the area its nice to see, But I would not make a special trip to see it. Was not impressed!


From TravelOK.com Staff on 07/12/11

Hello Steve, according to the park, yes they have WiFi but it is only at the park office. There is no password required and no fee to use this service. Have a great time at Natural Falls and thank you for using TravelOK.com.


From Steve on 07/12/11

We have plans to be there this week. Can you tell me if there is WIFI at the campsite? I have email that needs to be checked...shouldn't but need too. thanks,


From Steve Westbrook on 07/11/11

This was the best looking state park I have seen so far very clean campsites and well shaded and the falls was very nice to see showers could use some updating but very nice to visit . I will go back .


From Leelonna Payne on 06/27/11

One of my best friends and I brought our kids to Natural Falls for Friday and Saturday. We had 6 children all together, and this was my kids' first camping experience outside our front yard. We loved it sooooo much! We are Where the Red Fern Grows fans so this made it super exciting too. We explored and had a great time. The park was amazingly clean, I think I only saw one piece of trash on the ground the whole time I was there and it was a bag, probably blown by the wind. We will be back! What a great first experience camping, I really hope other places we camp are this nice. We took about 300 photos and loved every minute of it. The trails were well marked and a nicely varied. Thanks to the awesome staff! You rock! Everyone was friendly and we saw the bathrooms cleaned everyday! Loved it!


From Leelonna Payne on 06/27/11

No swimming but it's beautiful!


From Robert on 06/10/11

Is their swimming in the pool area where the Water Fall is located?


From chelsea on 06/06/11

Nice campgrounds, your not crowed up next to other campers. AMAZINGLY beautiful trails and waterfall. Friendly staff as well as other campers. Great place to get away and relax to.


From Sarah on 05/27/11

Another huge disappointment was we had 3 areas reserved. The Gardens, the Shelter and the Reunion Center. The park would not keep people out of our RESERVED areas. We had people walking dogs thru our ceremony site. We constantly had people in the shelter so basically we paid 75 so everyone else could use it. And, in the reunion center there is a large women’s bathroom for getting dressed, random people that were coming into the park office were going in our bathroom during our reception. They should not be allowed to have weddings at this park.


From Sarah on 05/27/11

Responding to Les. A SMALL AREA OF THE GARDENS HAS BEEN DISTURBED? You MUST be joking. ACTUALLY. You dug an electric line with a back hoe. how SMALL is that?? It was every bit of 4 foot wide if not more, and 20 yards long. We had to use the opposite side that was just grass with 2 trees in the way. And we could have used the side that had the garden area if we wanted our chairs sinking in the dirt because of that small hole you dug with the backhoe. All we got from you guys was our 20 vehicles in without the 4 fee, which did not even matter since the first 25 were supposed to be included with our package. It RUINED our wedding. I would NEVER recommend anyone to this place for an event. Not to mention while we set up our tables for our reception outside, our usher about got bit from the copperhead on the trailer. I loved how your park security laughed at that one. I am not hard to please, I am not picky, this was just an awful, awful experience.


From Tammy on 05/26/11

I want this park lots of waterfalls


From Les Pulliam on 05/18/11

Hello guests and wedding partys. We will make this right for you. Our staff has been working very hard to get this area ready for you, and our other wedding and day-use guests. Actually only a small area of the gardens has been disturbed and we will be happy to adjust as needed to accomodate all of our guests. Thanks for your use and support of Oklahoma State Parks!


From Sarah on 05/17/11

We chose the park for our wedding and reserved 3 areas. Our wedding is on a Saturday and the Tuesday before at 4PM, we got a call to tell us that they had to dig an electric line at the garden area where the ceremonys are normally held. I was then told to get a refund, there is a 2 week notice required... but they can call me 4 days before to tell me our guest are going to have their chairs in mud and dirt. Not only am I stressed out from planning a wedding, I now have this to decide in a matter of minutes/hours what we are going to do for our ceremony. The lady that works in the office did actually send me pictures to show me what the damage looked like and that was above and beyond of her to do. Now I will have to fight the situation if we do not use it to get our money back for the area.


From Gary from Bixby on 04/24/11

The races make it unbearable on Saturday nights. Otherwise I'd give it 5 stars.


From TravelOK.com Staff on 04/05/11

Josh, we called the number today and got right through so at least we know the phone is working properly. We're sorry for the inconvenience and might suggest that if you cannot get through by phone, please use the email link above to contact the park. Sometimes the phone is quite busy but the park staff would be happy to return an email or call you back if you'll send them your phone number. Thank you for using TravelOK.com and have a great camping trip to Natural Falls State Park.


From Josh Harp on 04/04/11

I would love to go camping here, but every time I have called the number above Phone 918 422 5802 for the last week all I have got is a busy signal.


From Nicole Proctor on 03/27/11

I took my daughter there yesterday and she loved it!


From Michael on 03/23/11

We enjoyed our one and only trip here except for one thing - The dirt track right up the highway. Unfortunately they run until very late at night and their schedule runs from March until October. There is no escaping the noise when you are trying to have a relaxing night. Despite this the hike down to the falls is fantastic and if you are into photography it makes for some nice opportunities especially of your kids or family.


From TravelOK.com Staff on 03/18/11

Kim, the day use fee for the park is 4.00 per car. This park is a great place for a family get together and we know you'll have a great time! If needed, you can also reserve the Red Fern Reunion Center with kitchenette for as little as 50.00 for four hours of use. Thank you for using TravelOK.com and please call the park directly for reunion center reservations and more information.


From kim on 03/18/11

How much does it cost to just visit for a day not camp or stay over night? Such as a family get together how much per person or is it by the car load?


From TravelOK.com Staff on 03/07/11

Doug, as a general rule camp sites at state parks are first come first served. For more details on this particular park, please call them directly at the number listed above. Thank you for using TravelOK.com and have a great time at Natural Falls State Park.


From DOUG on 03/07/11

Can a campsite be reserved or is it first come, first serve?


From Kevin on 10/14/10

I took my kids there for their first camping experience. What a wonderful place! They absolutely loved the campground with the play areas. They enjoyed the hiking. The tent camping was full, yet private. The campsite provides firewood for purchase for $4. Restrooms were clean and centrally-located. Just a wonderful place. The only drawback was the drought caused the waterfalls to dry up. Still the spring-fed falls were flowing. We will go again!


From TravelOK.com Staff on 08/26/10

Hello David! Camping rates start at $12 for primitive camp sites. Please call the park directly for reservation information. Keep an eye out for our State Park FAQs article coming soon. Thank you for using TravelOK.com to plan a fall getaway.


From David Moore on 08/25/10

What are the rates? Can you make reservations ahead of time? Seems to be some information missing from the old state park web site.


From Cindi on 08/20/10

This is an awesome place to go for a Friday or Saturday getaway. The hike to the falls is fun, safe & just gorgeous! Benches at the bottom of the falls makes for great pictures as well as resting! Play ground for kids right near the tent sites was very handy too! A definite place to visit!!


From julie on 07/11/10

Terrific place to camp with my 9 yr. old. Beautiful surroundings, nice tent sites, friendly staff, spotless facilities.


From Earl on 06/30/10

Sweetheart ck this place out. Next trip out ?????


From Michael & Suzanne on 06/30/10

Great for quiet get-away,absent the races on Sat. We go as often as we can. Perfect for relaxed camping when peace, quiet and beautiful surroundings are what you're looking for.


From Melissa on 06/19/10

Wonderful campground. Clean bathrooms, well lit campground with nice campsites. Only 1 small trail. Downside are the races on Saturday night about a mile away, very loud.


From mike on 03/28/10

very nice beautiful area. AMAZING camping, and fun stuff for the kids to do as well. hiking is good for a small trail, and the falls are just awesome to behold.


From Ashley on 03/10/10

small park but the pictures they have on here don't do it justice. the waterfall is great but there is so much more depth to this park with such a short hike. i have driven 3 hours on 3 seperate occasions to photograph this park. A great getaway
