If you are passing anywhere near Lawton, OK (just southwest of Oklahoma City) I recommend stopping at the Wichita Mountains Game Preserve.

You will be driving on open range in some of the prettiest mountains in the Mid-West among Buffalo, Herds of Elk, gaggles of Prarie Dogs, and Long Horn Cattle.

There is good camping in the Federal Park (that abbuts the Ft Sill Army Post), and walk-in campers are accommodated along with RVers (20, 30, and 50 amp hook-ups for $12) or no hook-up for $6. Clean restrooms and free showers as well as RV dumping are available.

Fishing and hunting, along with great hiking and rock climbing are available.

In addition, there is an interesting site called the "Holy City" inside the Preserve that was built in 1935 by volunteers from native rocks and materials, and is active today as well with Easter Services in addition to regular services.

If you want to see some photos from our recent visit (my first was in 1972 when stationed at nearby Altus AF, go to:

The park's website is:

Have fun!

Bob

Hi Bob,

You didn't roller skate in that buffalo herd, did you?

Interesting country we are in, eh? I never knew about the church city.

Welcome to FGRV and keep up with the pictures!

Well, I could have lived without the poop picture...

I figured most people have seen pictures of the Buffalo themselves, but....

Actually buffalo chips were the MAIN source of heat for cooking as well as for heating sod homes in pioneer days on the prarie, yet they (like comic Rodney Dangerfield) get "no respect" for their utility and life saving properties!

Cool! I'd like to see those funky little granite mountains someday. I know a guy who goes rock climbing there.
