A Fun Daycation in OK

Friday, several of the ManyMeadows+ went on a daycation to Sulphur Springs (Chickasaw National Recreational Area). Located just east of Davis, it is about a 90 minute drive from Oklahoma City (unless there is the usual construction on I-35…which there was…)

We chose Sulphur Springs for our trip earlier in the week, when temperatures were in the 100’s. Friday, we experienced the coolest day of the summer! But the 54-degree, spring-fed water was still a lot of fun for the brave and daring swimmers.
Sulphur has great walking trails, a small educational nature building, and plenty of cold water!


A little competitive rock skipping


Walking the trail to Buffalo Springs
Ooo...that's COLD water!

Leaving Buffalo springs

At Little Niagara..plenty of horsing around

Mesa Jo loves "Silphir" Springs....AND her daddy!
And they jumped....



and jumped....

It was a great day. We'll do it again...when it's a bit warmer.
Have you been to Sulphur Springs? What's your favorite daycation spot?

I've driven through Sulphur on the way to Texoma a few times. Didn't know to stop and explore!
