Your guide to Medicine Park
All About Medicine Park
Located in southwestern Oklahoma, Medicine Park is a small community with significant Native American history and cobblestone architecture dating back to the early 1800s. As Oklahoma's first resort town, Medicine Park also offers an abundance of open-air activities, including boating, horseback riding, and rock climbing throughout its picturesque countryside dotted with wildlife. The community is surrounded by the rocky landscape of the imposing Wichita Mountains, encircling the northwest part of town, and there are several lakes, including the popular Bath Lake. Outside of Medicine Park, the landscape ranges from sweeping green prairies to rugged wilderness dotted with bison.
In town, multiple eateries offer local specialities such as fried onion burgers and catfish dinners, or you just indulge in an old-fashioned soda as you meander through the local shops of this scenic town. Bath Lake is a popular spot to take a dip and watch the sun set against a picturesque mountain backdrop.
The best time to stay in a vacation rental in Medicine Park
Summer is the peak season for Medicine park cabin rentals and outdoor activities, and you can join the town's annual birthday celebration in early July. Fall is beautiful as the leaves start to change colors. The Native American Festival and Art Walk happens in October, with performances by local and regional artists. Winter brings colder temperatures but offers a richer view of the starry sky and snow-covered mountain landscape. Spring is a beautiful time to visit and enjoy the wildflower blooms. Mountain bike enthusiasts flock to the April Fools Mountain Bike Festival in early April.
