Description

Nestled in the mighty oak trees just west of Okmulgee are two beautiful state parks, Okmulgee and Dripping Springs.  Okmulgee State Park offers scenery, relaxation and recreation. The park is located along beautiful Okmulgee Lake, built in 1927, which spreads 668 acres. The park boasts several 1930s native sandstone structures built by the Works Progress Administration (WPA) and Civilian Conservation Corp (CCC). These native stone structures are a monument to these young men and their tireless efforts.

Three campgrounds offer a total of 47 semi-modern RV sites, one full hookup site and 103 primitive tent sites. Restrooms, showers, lighted boat ramps, pavilions, a playground and an ADA accessible fishing dock are available. Enjoy swimming, fishing and water sports on the lake.  A 3 1/2 mile hiking trail, part of which is ADA accessible, attracts nature lovers to the park.

From TravelOK.com Staff on 01/23/15

Doug, great question! If you just want to search for geocaches at the park, you do not need any special permission. However, if you're interested in placing a geocache in the park, you'll need to speak with the park staff to make sure that it's in a location that won't cause erosion, etc, when others go to search for it. If you have any questions, please call Okmulgee State Park at 918-756-5971. Happy hunting and thank you for using TravelOK.com!
