Watch this 2018 feature on Roman Nose State Park from Discover Oklahoma

The diverse landscape of Roman Nose State Park offers breathtaking views of canyons, mesas and gypsum rock cliffs and is home to three natural springs. The largest of these water features is called the “Spring of Everlasting Waters,” which flows at approximately 600 gallons per minute. Towering cedar trees, buffalo grass and wild blue sage add to the park’s ambience.

Roman Nose State Park is named after Cheyenne Indian Chief Henry Roman Nose and is one of the seven original Oklahoma state parks.
