We have been several times, sometimes taking the grandkids and their friends. The kids love it. We have also been alone or with family. Always a great time in Medicine Park! The kids love swimming, the eating and meeting new friends.

A very nice place to spend time at. There was a music festival going on. A lot of people went swimming in the lake. They want a fee of 2$ each person. We felt like jumping in too. We took a walk around the lake....More

The Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge is well worth the drive through the lands. The overview from Mt Scott is outstanding. The wildlife, lots of buffalo, are a delight to see. If you are lucky you might spot an elk or even a wild long horn...More

We came down on a Wednesday and most of the shops were closed so make sure to check before you come on a weekend. That being said we went to the aquarium, drove to the top of mount Scott and the kids went swimming. All...More
