Plan Your Visit
Visitors to Chickasaw "get two parks in one" – the Platt Historic District and the Lake of the Arbuckles, where they enjoy swimming, boating, hiking, and cycling. In the Lake of the Arbuckles and other fishing holes, anglers can land white bass, catfish, and sunfish. Hunters, too, can practice their sport in the park. Picnic areas furnish settings for family reunions and campgrounds welcome overnight stays. In addition to reconnecting with family and friends, visitors can get acquainted with some animals and plants.
The park is divided into two districts: the Platt Historic District and the Lake of the Arbuckles.
