Description

The Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge is a one-of-a-kind destination in southwest Oklahoma. Located near Cache and Lawton, the refuge spans over 59,000 majestic acres and is home to free range buffalo, Texas longhorn cattle, prairie dogs, elk and deer. Hikers and photographers will be astounded by the amount of incredible scenery offered within the refuge.

Recreation opportunities include mountain biking, rock climbing, rappelling, hiking, camping, picnic areas and fishing. The on-site Quanah Parker Nature and Visitor Center features exhibits on wildlife and habitats of the Wichita Mountains, as well as interactive and changing displays, artwork, videos, films and a bookstore. Periodically throughout the year, guests can schedule nature and wildlife tours that depart from the headquarters office either by foot, on bus or a combination of both.
