From pristine waters and abundant nature to the historic downtown, Sulphur is the perfect destination for a summer getaway. Located in south-central Oklahoma, the Chickasaw National Recreation Area provides the most exciting backdrop for all your favorite outdoor experiences. The Travertine Nature Center serves as the park’s main educational center, the perfect place to start your adventure, thanks to ranger-led programs and fun activities such as creek walks and night hikes. Jump into the swimming holes of Little Niagara Falls or hike the park’s thirty miles of trails, from Travertine Creek to Bison Pasture Loop—the perfect viewpoint of a small herd of buffalos. The crystal-clear waters of Lake of the Arbuckles make it one of the most popular places for scuba diving, but you can spend the afternoon at its fishing dock.
Unwind at the Chickasaw Retreat and Conference Center, nestled in the Arbuckle Mountains and surrounded by rolling hills and lush greenery, and enjoy the property’s serene setting and nearby natural attractions. Indulge in world-class wellness treatments at the award-winning Sole’renity Spa at the Artesian Hotel in downtown Sulphur. Whether guests spend their stay indoors or surrounded by the beauty outside, there is no shortage of exciting activities in the heart of Chickasaw Country.
