  • Runestone State Park is at the top of Poteau Mt. in Heavener. Steep one drive up will get you to the top where there are picnic sites but not much else. The Runesstone is believe to have a date carved...  more »
  • I really enjoyed getting to see this runestone after seeing Scott Wolter examining it on the tv series, "America Unearthed". There's not much to look at but there are many displays discussing its hist...  more »
  • I was familiar with the story and the several local runestones before I went so I was already interested. Unlike a few here who want to debate history - the site tells the story as it is believed to h...  more »

  • It's very lovely. Nice people. Nice gift shop. Nice scenery. Expect to walk down a ways to the Rune Stone. Don't year flip flops like I did (this was an unexpected detour stop and it's all I had with me). People were pulling up in their RVs so I'm pretty sure you can camp here. I hear they have a festival where they have homemade mead, activities, and live music. That sounds super interesting. It's all about the Viking love. Trust me when I say that it's a wonderful experience. Good for the kiddos too.
  • The gift shop wasn't that impressive, and the trails needed some maintaining while we were there, but it was definitely worth visiting. It's really gorgeous down there, and the rhinestone is one of those off the wall things you remember to say you saw later. Also, the staff inside the gift shop were REALLY friendly and welcoming. :)
  • Viking fest always have a blast love the birds of prey and throwing the axe and the food and dress it's a fun place remember it back when it was a state park but due to buget cuts it has to be supported by the town
  • Very pretty. Great view. Great place for hiking. Quiet place to camp or have a family bbq
  • Pretty neat little location. The man inside the gift shop / information center was really helpful and knew a lot about the parks history. I've lived in Oklahoma my entire life and had never been here. Glad I decided to go and check it out.
