Great Salt Plains Lake Oklahoma Fishing

Great Salt Plains State Park, developed as a state park in 1952, is perhaps the most unique of all Oklahoma State Parks. It is a shallow, salty lake -- about 1/3 to 1/2 as salty as the ocean. Great Salt Plains has intrigued vacationers and rock hounds from all over the globe.

Great Salt Plains State Park boasts the only spot in the world where people can dig for hourglass selenite crystals. Great Salt Plains State Park boasts the only spot in the world where people can dig for "hourglass" selenite crystals. The crystals emerge from the enormous salt flats and are found just beneath the surface. The crystals are quite fragile and require a shovel or hand spade for their retrieval.

The Salt Plains National Wildlife Refuge sits adjacent to the park and offers great bird watching and fall foliage viewing opportunities.
