Located in Oklahoma, the area now known as Roman Nose was originally a Cheyenne tribe winter campground. In 1892, it became part of the Cheyenne and Arapaho Reservation before being opened to non-Indian settlement in 1895.
The park is named after Chief Henry Roman Nose who often camped there. He died on this land in 1917.
In the early twentieth century, efforts were made by local citizens to preserve its natural beauty for public enjoyment. The Civilian Conservation Corps developed recreational facilities from 1935 until World War II began.
It officially became one of seven original state parks established by Oklahoma's legislature during their first session post-statehood.
Today it offers various outdoor activities including golfing, hiking trails and camping sites with modern amenities available for visitors' use.
