The family and I were going over options and the budget to see what we could do as far as a weekend trip or spring staycation. After talking it over we decided we'd do a little vacationing or staycationing in Medicine Park, OK. It's just a quick 15-25 minute drive from Lawton, Fort SIll so it certainly won't break the budget.

There are tons of things to see and do there. Plus throughout the spring and summer months, they have all kinds of special events and festivals going on. There are places to stay, or you could do a daycation and come back to the house if you wanted to. I think we'll book a room, maybe a cabin, and make a weekend of it.

Looking forward to doing a little swimming, wading, and floating in Bath Lake. Then grab the poles and do some fishing, then hiking, and sightseeing. Of course, we'll have to make a trip through the Wichita Mountain Wildlife Refugee. While we're there we'll go to the aquarium, if you've never been you're missing out.

It's one of the most picturesque places in the Sooner State. Medicine Park, OK.

One of my favorite things about Medicine Park is all the awesome food. They have some of the best restaurants and snack shacks to be found anywhere in the state, maybe the Nation. Sure, I love all the shops, hanging out, and all the events and festivals but the food is my all-time favorite thing about Medicine Park.
