Roman Nose State Park

Roman Nose State Park has been one of my favorite Oklahoma State Parks so far! The park had so much to offer and we had a blast hiking.


About
Roman Nose State Park is located in the northwest region of the state. The park offers an 18 hole golf course, hiking trails, natural springs, canoeing, fishing, horse back riding, mountain biking, paddle boats, and swimming pools. There is so much to do at this park, it would be easy to spend a long weekend there or visit multiple times. For more information about the park and pricing go to travelok.com.

Lodging
Roman Nose has a beautiful lodge with 22 rooms available. There are also 11 cabins on site that guests can stay in as well. To get a taste of the outdoors, there are also a variety of camp sites available throughout the park. We stayed in a cabin since the lodge had no vacancy. Although the exterior is nothing to boast about, we found the interior to be extremely cozy and offered a warm, comfortable bed. In the warmer months we would have definitely camped but we decided to brave the cool spring night with a cabin instead.  The lodge also has a restaurant that we ate both dinner and breakfast at. The food was satisfying and the scenery from the patio even better!

Natural Springs
Roman Nose park has three natural springs. This part of the park feels like its own separate park. We really admired the views that came with the natural springs. To read more about our adventure around the natural springs click here.

The Hiking
The hiking at Roman Nose was marvelous! We spent all of our time, besides eating and sleeping, at Roman Nose exploring the trails. To read more about our hiking experience click here.

We only experienced a fraction of what Roman Nose has to offer. We will definitely  be back to visit and explore more of this unique state park!
