Friends of ours took a trip and posted these pictures on Facebook. I had to know where they went!
They had taken a fun day trip to Natural Falls State Park located in Oklahoma. I quickly went online and looked all the information up. This spot is going to be perfect for a family trip, with a picnic included.
Natural Falls State Park is roughly a 2 hour drive from Joplin. It is near
The Oklahoma/Arkansas border in the Ozark Highlands. Here you will find a 77-foot waterfall, and an observation deck. You may find the surroundings familiar as the movie “Where the Red Fern Grows” was filmed at the park.
On-site Activities include: Biking, Disc Golf, Fishing, Hiking, Volleyball, Watchable Wildlife.
Entrance fee is $5 per vehicle, and Oklahoma seniors and honorably discharged Oklahoma veterans get in free with documentation. There are other prices for tent sites, RV sites, and Premium sites.
