“nestled in the scenic Ozark Highlands”

Located near the Oklahoma/Arkansas border in the scenic Ozark Highlands region of northeast Oklahoma, Natural Falls State Park features a 77-foot waterfall cascading through rock formations and creating a hidden, serene atmosphere at the bottom of a narrow V-shaped valley. A railed observation platform allows hikers to overlook the falls and another observation deck with seating is located at the foot of the falls offering two vantage points to enjoy one of the most scenic wonders in the state.  The beautiful scenery looks familiar to many visitors because scenes from the 1974 movie, "Where the Red Fern Grows" were filmed in the park.

The falls and creek area are beautiful and worth a trip but the campground is basically an open field next to the highway. We could hear cars all night long.
This is better for a day trip. The campground is not that special.

Nice an helpful staff, they clearly take pride in the park. Easy walk to the falls (didn't even know they existed!) 4.00 day fee. Clean playgrounds, facilities, and discuss golf.

very simple park. Clean campgrounds with nice easy trails to explore. I believe there are some that are wheel chair access. Make sure you are there after a rain or early in the year so it will really be flowing!

This is one of the best state parks I have ever visited. We stayed in one of the yurts, which was a very unique and fun way to stay. The staff was very helpful and the park is beautiful and kept very clean.

It's actually a pretty Park, interesting lean the natural Falls AR mostly man-made. There is a pump station at the bottom of the falls about a quarter of a mile that pumps most of the water that runs down the falls. There is a natural stream that feeds the fall, but it's not much. But it's very picturesque that's a great place to casually walk. It's absolutely ad side trip, not a destination

The Natural Falls hike was great for my pups and I to stretch our legs while driving through on our road trip! We spent about 2 or 2.5 hours walking the trail and hanging out at the park. The falls were gorgeous and the staff were very helpful. There were bathrooms. My only request would be to better mark the trails, but we were able to figure it out.
