Located just west of Bartlesville in the heart of the Osage Nation in northeast Oklahoma, Osage Hills State Park is a prime example of Oklahoma's natural beauty. With lush forests, rocky bluffs and serene waters, the park boasts 1,100 acres of scenery. A visit to Osage Hills State Park in the fall will inspire visitors, as the foliage transforms from green to vivid shades of yellow, orange and red. 

Trails on the rocky, hilly terrain provide a challenge to hikers and mountain bikers, and there are many to choose from in Osage Hills State Park. Visitors may catch a glimpse of white-tailed deer or a wild turkey while on the trails. Tennis courts and a ball field are available to visitors, and the swimming pool provides a great way to cool off on a hot day. 

Fishing is a favorite activity in Osage Hills State Park. Anglers can test their skills and try their luck at Lookout Lake or at Sand Creek, which winds through the park. Bass, crappie, catfish and sunfish, among other fish, can be found. Fishing boats are available for rental at the lake.

RV sites with water and electricity hookups, as well as tent sites are available at Osage Hills State Park.  Reservations for all tent and RV sites must be made online. The park also offers a waste dump station for RVs. Visitors can camp in canvas wall tents pitched on a wooden platform or relax in one of eight native stone cabins, built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930's.

Each cabin has central heat and air, a fireplace, kitchen facilities and allows pets for a small nightly fee. The park offers a picnic area and picnic pavilions, as well as comfort stations and a facility with modern bathhouses.

A group camp is also available. It consists of a large dining hall with two fireplaces, as well as tables and seating for 120 people. The on-site commercial kitchen has a walk-in cooler, ice machine and enough utensils to serve 120 people. There is also an attached bathhouse. A total of nine bunkhouses are available to sleep up to 118 people, and there is another bathhouse near the bunkhouses.
