Little Niagara Swimming Area Closed

This nearly vertical wooded bluff rises 140 feet above its base along Rock Creek. Along its top is found one of the most obvious ecotones in the area, where a growth of dense oak, ash and elm vanishes and short grass and prickly-pear cactus become predominat. One can see for several miles in all directions from the Bromide Overlook, a vantage point from which the various natural landscapes of the park can be seen from a different perspective, as well as the Arbuckle Mountains and the Washita River valley on the southwest. Local legend holds that this location was once used by early-day outlaws, hence it is also known as Robbers' Roost.
