Talimena State Park marks the Oklahoma entrance to the Talimena National Scenic Drive, a winding road through the Winding Stair Mountains that is known for spectacular spring and fall foliage. Hiking and backpacking trails throughout the Ouachita National Forest begin at Talimena State Park and offer a wide range of scenic, wooded terrain. Dirt bikes and ATVs are permitted in the park as an entrance point to the national forest lands. Talimena State Park offers facilities for picnics and camping including a pavilion, tables, 10 RV sites with 30 amp electricity and water hookups, seven designated tent campsites with pads and many other available areas suitable for tents, fire rings, a playground, hiking trails and a comfort station with showers. A small gift shop is also located on-site. Honor system reservations for campsites are accepted by calling the park office.
