Water may be in shorter supply in northwestern Oklahoma’s Red Carpet Country, but there are still plenty of amazing places to take a swim, cast your line or take out the boat in this geographically distinct area. Characterized by majestic mesas and wide swaths of shortgrass prairie, Red Carpet Country is home to some of the most unique lakes in Oklahoma. We covered Kaw Lake in Ponca City in our overview of the state's major lakes, so now read all about these high-plains oases and make plans to visit this one-of-a-kind region today.Learn More
The Supply Trail Mural
The Alva Mural Society commissioned artist Roger Cooke to paint this mural in 2010. “The Supply Trail” features Camp Supply, which supported the campaign against the Southern Plain Indians in 1868. Food and supplies were transported from the railhead at Kiowa, Kansas to Camp Supply via wagon and stagecoach. The supply trail crossed northern Woods County and forded the Cimarron River near Freedom, Oklahoma.
