Natural Falls, Oklahoma

Natural Falls in March 2011

I was excited to find out that there was a waterfall in Oklahoma that could be easily visited from the Fayetteville, Arkansas area (where I flew into). When getting the rental car, the woman was very enthusiastic about Natural Falls. My only concern about visiting it was time, as I had arrived later than expected, and the park closes at 5 pm, at least in the winter (or early March).

I did actually luck out and arrived at 4:30 pm. I had 30 minutes to visit the falls, and the hike the falls is extremely short. There is an upper viewpoint, and a surprisingly easy hike down to the base. Now, as with other falls, there wasn’t a whole of water, but I can’t complain about this because it was so simple to visit! I can handle that!

There is another portion of the falls not shown in the picture. There is (I think) a spring that emerges from the rock near the falls, but it was bright at that point, and it was hard to photograph both falls at the same time.


  1. From Siloam Springs in Arkansas (or West Siloam Springs in Oklahoma), head west on US-412 until you reach the entrance to the park.
  2. Pay the entrance fee and then turn left just past the entrance to head to the falls trail.

Accessibility: 10/10 (easy)
Height: 77′
Length of Hike: 0.2 miles round-trip
