If you're wild about wildlife, don't miss Oklahoma's outdoor spaces, which allow visitors to spot bison, birds, prairie dogs and more. Plan a trip to America's first wildlife preserve, the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge, where buffalo still roam freely. Spot bald eagles who make their winter homes on Oklahoma's lakes, or witness the spectacle at the Selman Bat Cave.
