New Oklahoma State Parks and Outdoor Recreation Guide is designed to get people outside in Oklahoma

It's time to hit the outdoors in Oklahoma with help from a new guide.

There's also a full listing of activities as well as campgrounds, cabins and lodging. In the past few years, I've gotten back into playing golf, so it's been an absolute pleasure to play on some of our seven state park courses.

If you play on an Oklahoma State Golf course, you'll find thrilling and challenging play in what is I think some of the most picturesque surroundings. You can putt in the shadow of the Pensacola Dam at Grand Cherokee on Grand Lake, or drive the canyon rims of Roman Nose. Lake Murray and Lake Texoma golf courses will captivate you, too.

Equestrian activities may interest you. Did you know Oklahoma has the fourth-largest horse population in the nation? We Oklahomans love our horses. For the past seven years, my family has saddled up and ridden horses every summer. We've ridden at Robbers Cave State Park, as well as Roman Nose and Lake Thunderbird. In the equestrian section of the new Outdoor Guide, you'll find listings for trails, camping, and equestrian events.

Oklahoma's outdoor beauty begs to be explored in all its glory and splendor when spring fills the air with adventure, family fun and relaxation.
