Washita Battlefield National Historic Site is known more for the events that took place here on November 27, 1868 than as a 'natural park.' This mixed-grass prairie, however, is still considered home to a wide variety of birds, mammals, reptiles, and more!

Camp Supply 1869

Camp Supply, Indian Territory, was established November 1868, to support General Philip Sheridan's winter campaign against the Southern Plains Indians. Lt. Col. George Armstrong Custer and the 7th U.S. Cavalry left this camp to search for and engage "hostiles" reported to be in their winter camps along the Washita River. This historic post is located 13 miles north of Woodward, Oklahoma on Highway 183.
