Chickasaw National Recreation Area is in southcentral Oklahoma, between Dallas, Texas and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Chickasaw National Recreation Area was originally authorized in 1902 as Sulphur Springs Reservation and was renamed and redesignated as Platt National Park in 1906. In 1976, Platt National Park, Arbuckle National Recreation Area, and additional lands were combined to establish Chickasaw National Recreation Area.

The Buffalo Springs / Antelope Springs Trail is easy and I would describe it as more of a walking trail. It is a 2 mile gravel trail approximately 6 feet wide. This trail is a must for any walker or hiker because the views are stunning. I will post pictures but it is difficult to capture the beauty due to the crystal clear water. There are 3 optional trails (Prairie Loop .6 miles, Oaks Trail .5 miles, and Dry Creek Loop 1.8 miles) which can be incorporated in this hike and offer a little more challenge. The park draws a big crowd on the summer weekends, visit on a weekday if your schedule allows.
