Osage Hills State Park

During another part of our so-called “staycation”, packed up and headed to Osage Hills. This is a beautiful park with hiking trails, picnic tables, playgrounds, camping, etc. Entrance to the park is free.

We packed up a picnic lunch to eat once we arrived. We picked a nice shady table, and ate some sandwiches and chips.

We decided to hike a familiar trail. It is short enough that Harper was able to walk on her own- which thrills her to no end.

At the end of this trail is water that is perfect for playing in. The water was much higher than the last time we visited, due to an insane amount of rain this spring. So, we were more cautious with the girls. Most of the water is not very deep, and the waterfalls are small and beautiful.

Isn’t it just beautiful?! I could stay there forever.

If you are into hiking or doing anything outside, I highly recommend that you get yourself a pair of Chacos!! I was able to stand on the slimy rocks in the water without slipping at all. They dried quickly and have a lot of support. {I’ve also heard that Tevas are great.}

 

If you are ever in Northeastern Oklahoma, I highly recommend checking Osage Hills out!!
