History of the Area
Located in Woodward County, Oklahoma, the park was established in 1935. It is named after its natural "boiling" springs.

The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) developed it during the Great Depression as part of New Deal programs.

In addition to building infrastructure like cabins and roads, CCC also planted thousands of trees across this area.

It became a popular destination for outdoor activities such as camping, hiking and swimming due to its unique geothermal features.

Today it covers an expanse of over 800 acres with diverse wildlife including deer and wild turkey populations.

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
August 16 A MUST PLAY course if in area. by Golfnut
park review stars; one to five Extremely popular course for mid to low handicappers. Too tough if just learning due to extremely scenic and undulating terrain, lots of wildlife, narrow fairways and tons of trees. Absolutely gorgeous and fun to play, especially in fall.

park review stars; one to five We Had a great time. Every thing was nice and clean. Cabins in good shape. Fold out couch bed not so much. Might think of cot or air mattress. Kitchen well stocked. Life guards did a great job keeping the pool in great shape. Aspin, Tanner and Blade were friendly with the guest and still made sure we were all safe. Lots of wood for fire. Bring bug spray. We Had A great stay
