Water-adventurers will be right at home at Chickasaw'waders, swimmers, anglers, water-skiers, and boaters all can enjoy a summer vacation here.
"The Peaceful Valley of Rippling Waters" appropriately describes Chickasaw National Recreation Area, as it is known for its many mineral springs, cool water, flora, fauna, and wildlife. Here one's mind may wander back in time to when the early American Indian came to this area to rest, relax at the waters edge, and hunt for their food from the abundant wildlife.
This area has significant geological and hydrological features and lies in the transitional ecotones of the Eastern deciduous forest and the Western prairies.
