Nestled up against the Witchita Mountains on the banks of the gently burbling Medicine Creek, there’s a lot more to Medicine Park, OK than a slightly odd name. Medicine Park has been one of Oklahoma’s premier resort towns since the early 1900s, and grew from humble beginnings as a series of army surplus tent to a gorgeous cobblestone retreat that attracted visitors from all over Oklahoma, Kansas, and North Texas. Some of the old cobblestone cabins remain, and tourists still flock to the area, driven by Medicine Park’s proximity to vast nature preserves, walking trails, and historical sites. The town got its title from the creek, of course, which was believed by local indigenous peoples to have curative properties.
There’s no designated dog park in Medicine Park, but that certainly doesn’t mean that you and your furball are bound to be bored! It should come as no surprise that there’s plenty of furrifically fur-friendly hiking options in the area, and you two might find the mountain air to be just what the veterinarian ordered. You’ll also find some community parks that are both scenic and relatively canine-friendly, and while you might need to drive a little to get the best for your buddy, there are some pawesome off-leash areas a bit fur-ther afield!
Bath Lake is the jewel in Medicine Park’s crown, so it’d be a real faux paw not to check it out! Right in the middle of Medicine Park’s lovingly restored downtown, Bath Lake is serene, scenic, and surrounded by mature trees. It’s also got a very popular swimming hole, but unfortunately, dogs aren’t allowed. There are some lovely walking paths by the lake, though -- just watch out for malicious geese! While you’re there, be sure to stop in at the Riverside Cafe. This locally owned gem sits right on the water, and your pooch is welcome to join you on their terrace.
If your pooch loves hiking, a trip to Lake Lawtonka is sure to make them one happy hound! You’ll find miles trails here to sniff and explore, and most of them feature breathtaking views of the vast lake. For a sedate stroll, try the Green Trail -- it features some fascinating rock gardens and doesn’t have much of an incline. Fitter furry friends looking for a challenge might want to try their luck on the Blue Trail. Like the Green Trail, this trek wanders through bucolic prairie grassland, but it features some short, sharp climbs. Careful, though -- neither path gets much shade, so it’s best to go early during the summer.
With Wichita Mountains National Wildlife Refuge right on the edge of Medicine Park, you’d need to be barking mad not to go! You’ll find a hiking trail here for every age and ability, from the most athletic animals to the most committed couch pup-tatoes. Charon’s Garden Wilderness makes for a particularly interesting walk, featuring fascinating rock formations, a small stream, and lots of native wildflowers. The views from Mt. Scott have to be seen to be believed, but if you’re out of breath just thinking about the climb, don't worry-- you can drive all the way to the top.
Cultured canines might get a kick out of a visit to the Fort Sill National Historic Landmark and Museum! Your pooch won’t be able to enter the museum itself, unless they can be carried the whole time. If you don’t feel like strapping a Labrador to your back to prove a point (and if you do, more power to ya), you two can still wander around the monuments outside, and take in artillery used in every US conflict all the way back to the horse-drawn days. Military history not your thing? You and your doggo can still walk around the well-maintained park, and non-furry family members might appreciate the playground.
The Vito Baxter Puppy Promenade in Lawton is a real mutts-visit! Tucked away in the quiet, residential neighborhood of Park Ridge, this park is huge -- there’s wide open space as far as the eye can see, and there’s room enough in both the small and large dog areas for the most rambunctious of fur-balls to burn off some energy, even when it’s busy. Tired owners will be glad to know that there’s ample seating, and the dog run gets plenty of shade, so you can let your pooch leap about without worrying about them overheating. Bags and water are provided, so just bring your pup and prepare to play!
