This is a great place to visit and wander around. Lots of trails and lots of rocks to climb on. The parking lot can get really crowded necessitating parking down the hill and walking up. If you plan to camp, be sure to check out the options. Reservations for those areas can go fast, and the first come first served might have the less desirable sites left so do that first. There's a section for horses (corrals) and miles of hoof friendly trails. Dogs are allowed but please pick up after your dog. Nobody wants to see dog poop or step in it.

One thing Oklahoma does very well is their State Parks. Many of them are as good or better than National Parks. Robbers Cave is one of these great out of the way locations with a lot of history and beautiful views. Just over an hour south of Tulsa, Robbers Cave used to be a hide out for outlaws deep in Indian Country in the late 19th century. Many people have heard stories of Fort Smith Ar. and hanging Judge Issac Parker. True Grits Marshal Rooster Cogburn traveled in this country to bring in the outlaws hiding in the territory. In those days, there were no trees, and you could see "the law" coming for miles and make your escape. Great American History, Wild West Adventure, beautiful vistas and trails that go on forever with easy climbs and spelunking await visitors here. They have RV spots, cabin rentals and the Bell Star Lodge with motel style rooms. They also rent golf carts if you like. What a great way to spend a weekend or a week outdoors.

(DO NOT take a wrong turn. I was on a rocky road for 30 minutes because I didn't read the signs. All of the public roads are paved.) Great place, good history behind it. Fun to climb stuff.

It was so beautiful here. My mother, my 6 year old daughter and myself had an amazing time. Drove from Oklahoma City to come see where my grandparents had spent there honeymoon back in the 1960's. We had so much fun hiking and climbing around the cave area. Staff was great and very willing to help us with any questions.
