Oklahoma State Travel Guide


Oklahoma became the 46th state to enter the union on November 16, 1907 and is nicknamed The Sooner state due to settlers that staked land claims before the official opening date of lands in the western Oklahoma Territory. With ancient mountain ranges, prairiemesas, and eastern forests, most of Oklahoma lies in the Great PlainsCross Timbers, and the U.S. Interior Highland regions. 

Oklahoma has 6 National Park units, 51 State Parks, 3 State Fish Hatcheries, 2 State Wildlife Management Areas,1 National Wildlife Area, 5 National Wildlife Refuges and 2 Metro and City Parks. There are 1,344 places listed on the National Register of Historic Places, 22 National Historic Landmarks, 3 National Natural Landmarks, and 3 National Forests.

“Oklahoma, where the wind comes sweepin’ down the plain, And the wavin’ wheat can sure smell sweet, When the wind comes right behind the rain.” Rodgers & Hammerstein
