A few weeks ago, we went to Natural Falls State Park.
The park is located in Northeast Oklahoma, in the Ozarks. It has a 77ft waterfall which is the tallest in the State. It’s also where part of the movie Where the Red Fern Grows was filmed in the 70s.
It’s dog friendly so we decided to take Teegan with us to work on his social skills.
It costs $4 for the car to enter the park. The parking lot to the waterfall isn’t far from the entrance.
This is the “formal garden”. The parking lot is behind me (taking the picture). The waterfall is straight ahead.
The pictures below are all taken by M.
To get to the bottom of the falls, you have to walk down. It’s not far at all.
Here’s MJ. This is the waterfall. It’s not huge. It used to be called dripping springs.
The day we went, it was so hot and at the bottom of the falls, it was actually nice. The waterfall is almost in an alcove, I could have stayed there all day.
Here’s the bottom of the waterfall. That water was so inviting but you can’t swim in it…it is a national park after all.
And here’s Teegan looking at Daddy. He was such a good boy. We couldn’t have been prouder.
