We visited several OK State Parks last week. Have to say, this was our favorite.
The trail itself is beautiful! Very well laid out, nicely maintained and just lovely. The stone is easily seen dispite having to be protected from morons.
The woman in the info center was great. She gave us a bit of history and information and then backed off. She answered all questions but did not come off as a know-it-all. She was friendly and fun to talk to.
I left very curious about the carvers of the Runes and wanting to visit other sites.

I have just made a discovery which validates the Runestones found in Oklahoma. Please visit http://www.thekensingtonrunestone.com for complete information. In case you have seen the website before there is now new information on it.
February 4Fascinating, Expands view of US history by London Frontier
Very interesting - both site & small museum. Would love to see more research done on this site & others which seem to be ignored by mainstream archeology.

I was there as a nine year old before any improvements or it was actually a state park. I had relatives who lived in the area and my grandmother was born in Heavner. What a great history lesson and look forward to returning to see what has been done. Congrats to OK for recognizing such a treasure and putting it under the State Parks protection.
