Natural Falls State Park

Reviewed 3 May 2018 via mobile

We drove out to this state park after church during a visit to Siloam Springs for JBU Family Weekend. There are numerous hiking trails that take you over and around the creek and springs. The hikes have differing levels of difficulty so check that out before you start down a trail and good shoes are a must. Even though it was winter, this was a beautiful place to get out and get some fresh air and exercise. A picnic would be perfect for a pretty day.

Just off the highway you can get to this state park very easily and should stop through. It’s $5 to enter the park to see the falls and hike. There are several rv spots in a wooded area, lots of open grass areas, frisbee golf, playgrounds, 5 hiking trails, and some glamping tents.
The park store has a few treats and information inside.
We went in late March and the falls were flowing nicely.
The falls itself has several paths to get good vantage points of the falls. The lower path where the falls terminate requires several steep steps but the upper path had wheelchair accessible ramps.
The pathways around the falls have seen better days but the views are great. The upper path leads to a trail that follows the upper path of the stream with lots of waterfall views as well as crags with lookouts. The lower path had a trail that led to another bridge further away from the waterfall but a good stream blocked the path the day we came.
Another note is to bring extra socks and shoes as water naturally flows all over the trails and paths here, especially in March. We took young Kids and the main and bear trails were perfectly suited with supervision.

An hour and 10 minutes away and we had barely heard of it much less seen it. But its a great place for a day trip. Nice hiking trails, beautiful Oklahoma scenery and the falls. Small admission fee but nice gift shop. Lots of RV parking for the longer term visitors.

If you like pretty places in nature, this is a must for you to go to.. It was a
scene in the movie: Where the Red Fern Grows... Which is a movie and book you must read to your children.. Set in the Ozarks near Tahlequah on the Illinois River...

The falls and surrounding area provide a beautiful area to relax, hike, camp and fish. Good facilities and close to town.
