State park lodges offer meeting space for relaxation
Fitness buffs can hike miles of trails throughout the park and outdoor lovers can fish in the lake or the sparkling trout-filled waters of the Lower Mountain Fork River. Golfers will find beauty as well as a challenge on the 18-hole Cedar Creek Golf Course. To book a meeting at Lakeview Lodge, call (800) 435-5514.
Western Oklahoma sunsets are picture perfect for visitors at Roman Nose Lodge in Watonga. Not to be outdone by the sunsets, the sunrise over the mesas paint a vibrant panorama in the early morning hours.
Surrounded by the canyons and mesas, the 22-room lodge is a perfect marriage of structure and landscape and offers meeting space in two separate areas. Eleven cottages located in the park provide guests with a leisurely and comfortable place to rest after an engaging daylong think tank session.
Problem-solving creates big appetites and the lodge restaurant serves up palate-pleasing dishes from breakfast until dinner. Park activities include mountain bike and hiking trails, horseback trail rides and fishing in Lake Watonga.
The challenging 18-hole golf course takes you deep into the valleys or high atop a mesa where views of the multihued gypsum canyon walls are breathtaking. To book a meeting at Roman Nose Lodge, call (800) 892-8690.
Other state park meeting facilities are available at Lake Murray Lodge near Ardmore and Belle Starr View Lodge at Robbers Cave State Park near Wilburton. Each offers indoor and outdoor entertainment, lodging and rooms for off-site gatherings.
Break away from the traditional “bored-room” for your next large meeting. Adjust your work attitude and spirit by getting back to nature at an Oklahoma state park lodge.
