Osage Hills State Park

Bristol, England
Reviewed January 9, 2004

My husband, four sons and I went to Oklahoma in March 2001 to visit my best friend who lives in Bartlesville. Due to the size of our family and ages of the children at the time ( 8,7,3 and under 1 ) staying in a motel or equivalent wasn't feasible.

So, we opted to rent a login cabin within Osage Hills Park for the fortnight of our stay. It was like home, a fully fitted kitchen, log fire, bathroom with shower and proper beds !!!. The children adored it as they could run wild without disturbing anyone.

Every other day, the park ranger collected our used bedding and supplied us with a fresh lot.

We had incredible weather for that time of year, the high 70's so mainly stayed outdoors, having BBQ's on the one supplied just by the front door.

In the evenings wild animals such as deer, skunks and racoons came right upto the cabin searching for food which was quite a magical experience.

Frank Phillips Mansion and the Indian Museum within its ground is a must for any visitor. Our two eldest sons were bemused by the real shrunken heads and would still be there now staring at them if we hadn't of distrated them by mentioning food.

Talking of the latter, we tended to eat out quite abit because it was so cheap. The Golden Corral can't be recommended enough with its hot, varied and extremely fresh food.

The only negative aspect of out trip was the car hire. Extortionate after paying for extras like collision damage waiver. We collected it from the airport upon arrival to save money and it still was almost $850.

Another word of warning, if travelling from the UK, try to avoid getting a connecting flight from Houston to Tulsa. Our departure terminal changed 5 times at Houston whilst waiting for the Tulsa plane.
Houston is a huge airport and we missed our flight after chasing around the airport to find the right one. No announcement was made to pre- warn travellers. Literally, you were given ten minutes to find your new gate and by all accounts, this is quite normal.

Having to do this with four children in tow, a double buggy, tired and hungry is not fun after travelling for 24 hours beforehand.

To give Tulsa airport staff their credit, they gave us $50 to buy the boys some food and drink plus telephoned my friend at home to let her know what was happening.

Anyhow, it was one of the best holidays that we've ever had and we're now saving up for the next.
