  • The Salt Plains were awesome! We dug and recovered about 10 lbs. of selenite. Make sure you bring extra clothes to change into because you will get dirty. Also, bring shovels and a container to put yo...  more »
  • We went to the N.W. part of Oklahoma to visit 4 state parks in 1 weekend. We stayed in Woodward and did Boiling Springs (quickest visit depending on how long you hike around) in under an hour. Then Al...  more »
  • First of all, it is a pity the state does not take care of this place. That being said, we did look for fossils and found the whole idea intriguing. You really don't need to dig too much. We started t...  more »

  • You are guaranteed to see many different birds with each visit. Many of the birds you will have a hard time finding anywhere else in Oklahoma. There is limited hiking, but the short trail along State Highway 11 will give you a nice viewing area for birds along the lake's shoreline. It is a short trail, but the views are worth it. It is important to bring bug repellent because the mosquitoes are very prevalent. As for digging for crystals, it is fun also. Just make sure you go during the months it is allowed (April 1 - Oct 15). You will get dirty, but it is to be expected digging in the sand. Remember to bring your own digging tools, water and sunscreen because it is an absolute necessity.
  • This is a interesting place to visit it's not what you'd expect to see in Oklahoma or at least I didn't. It has beautiful views unusual wildlife and is maintained nicely. If your ever in the area definitely worth checking out.
  • Interesting part of Oklahoma in the middle of farm and ranch land. There are trails, a car tour and plenty of scenery to enjoy.
  • The Salt plains were a lot of fun. The kids love digging for crystals and my oldest wasn't ready to leave. It was warm so wear sunscreen and bring a large shovel. A hand trowel went cut it.
  • Awesome place to bring the family! Nothing beats digging for salt crystals!
