Roman Nose State Park, named after a Cheyenne chief, is one of the original seven Oklahoma state parks. Set amidst a beautiful canyon, recreational activities at this state park include an 18-hole golf course, swimming pools, hiking trails, two lakes, trout fishing in season, canoeing, paddle boats, mountain biking, horse stables and hayrides by reservation. Rentals include canoes, kayaks, paddleboats and mountain bikes. Swimming in the lakes is not allowed, but fishing and no-wake boating are welcome.

Roman Nose State Park features 11 cabins and a beautiful lodge. The 22-room lodge, originally constructed in 1956, has been completely renovated to reflect the natural landscape of the area.  The reconstruction emphasizes the lodge's original mid-century design, while beautifully updating the look to today's modern standards. The newly decorated rooms feature large showers, comfy beds, contemporary furnishings with a nod to mid-century design and large flat-screen televisions. A restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner is located within the lodge. Use the green 'Book Now' button above to make cabin or lodge reservations.

Roman Nose State Park offers many breathtaking views of the canyon, gypsum rock cliffs and is home to three natural springs. Group camps and picnic areas are located throughout the park. Camping is available at one of the 12 full hookup RV sites, 35 sites with water and electric or 33 tent sites. There are a total of 27 RV campsites available in the Bitter Creek, Two Lakes and Canyon Vista campgrounds for reservation by accessing the green button at the top of this page. All other RV sites are first come, first serve. The area also offers excellent opportunities for fall foliage and wildlife viewing. Teepee rentals are available from April through October. Group rates are also available.
