The Two RV Gypsies decided to go to Roman Nose State Park because of the ad in the tourist magazine shown below. It made the two RV Gypsies think that all the things shown in the collage photo were at Roman Nose State Park, but as it turns out, most of those things are in other parks in the area somewhere. Roman Nose State Park is a nice place, but the two RV Gypsies wanted to see the big waterfalls shown in the collage, and never did find what park they are located in. Oh well, The Two RV Gypsies still saw a lot of beautiful scenery, just not what they expected.

Roman Nose State Park, named after a Cheyenne chief, is one of the original seven Oklahoma state parks. Once a winter campground of the Cheyenne tribe, this area now is a scenic retreat set on a canyon bluff that over-looks ancient mesas. Towering cedar, buffalo grass and wild blue sage add to the beauty of this legendary setting, and to the enjoyment of the many recreational activities.

The new yard of the Two RV Gypsies at Roman Nose State Park in Watonga, Oklahoma. Looking beyond the fence, the view from the RV was a small lake with paddle boats.

The Two RV Gypsies have been told by many people that the best view in the park is from Inspiration Point. However, the Two RV Gypsies learned that it was a long hike up to Inspiration Point. Lee Duquette did NOT want to take that hike.
So, they took a walk on the easy trail directly behind the fence near their RV. Actuallyl, they spent more time taking photos than they did walking. Due to the heat, they were back at their RV within half-an-hour.

The Two RV Gypsies drove around Roman Nose State Park looking for the swimming pool area. There was a handicap ramp down to this area, and there were several picnic tables. They found the pool, but first they came across the Big Spring area and got a glimpse of a waterfall.

Lee Duquette crossed the wooden bridge to get a closer look at the waterfall.

As the Two RV Gypsies got closer to the waterfall, they saw a cave.

Children were wading in the icy water and they ventured into the cave. The Two RV Gypsies did not enter the water nor the cave. It was 103 degrees out and Karen wished she had on water shoes so she could wade in the water too. Lee said the water was too cold for him.

Walking a bit further up the path the Two RV Gypsies came across an area called the Three Springs Area. Lee Duquette leaned over to feel the icy cold water.

The two RV Gypsies walked back to the wooden bridge, and walked through the grass to see the swimming pool, which was closed. There were a lot of annoying flying grasshoppers in the area.
