Chickasaw National Recreation Area offers many opportunities for children. The inviting waters of Travertine Creek and the Lake of the Arbuckles provide a place to cool off on a hot summer day; hiking trails serve as easy avenues to learn more about nature. To make the most of your visit, complete a junior ranger activity booklet to earn a badge!
There are many online resources for learning about Chickasaw National Recreation Area and the National Park Service. If you are writing a school report, or just want to learn more about your parks, visit the History & Culture, Nature & Science, and Plan Your Visit sections of this website.
