Quiet, scenic little town, went on a Saturday, only 3-4 shops open. Covid must have shut it down. A little disappointing for us.

The views are amazing as well as the history of the area. We saw bison and prairie dogs on the Wichita Mountain Wildlife Refuge. This quaint town with cobblestone houses is fairly busy on the weekends, but be prepared: the shops are not open Monday through Wednesday. It was a great little getaway. We had our teenagers and 6 and 8 year- old granddaughters with us. They all had fun. Don't miss driving to the peak of Mt. Scott. It was hard to believe we were in Oklahoma with the gorgeous mountain views. We would definitely like to go back and maybe do some fishing. Lots of lakes in the area.

Riverside cafe was amazing. Quaint and simple all the way around. The perfect place for a Fall Break getaway.

The historic Medicine Park is a very enjoyable place, but it is filled with many people during the day - weekdays and weekends. The main street through town is narrow, 10mph, and one where people just walk right down the middle of the road blocking traffic. We never did get out to visit any of the restaurants or shops because of the volume of people and lack of parking. However, we did stop at the dam and took some pictures of the Lake Lawtonka and Mount Scott, which could be seen across the lake. We found that we could cross the catwalk over the dam and then found a bike and hiking trail. We went out nearly half a mile before turning around and returning to the dam and our car. The trail is filled with rocks protruding from the ground and one needs to be careful where to step. This is a well-used trail for mountain bikers and we had about half a dozen pass us by, being very respectful of us on the trail. We found some clearings in places and took more pictures of Mount Scott. Someday, we'll find where this trail leads to and take a longer or the full loop.

We love the small town of Medicine Park. For such a small town there are a lot of things to do. If you are into swimming the have the most beautiful swimming hole. I think the price is $3 for all day.
