Who is ready for some fall weather?? This month we will be going backpacking at Robbers Cave State Park in the western Ouachita mountains in eastern Oklahoma! This is one of the most looked forward to campouts on our calendar. The leaves are changing and the weather is cool so get your backpacks out and let’s head out into the woods! These mountains offer us the experience of true wilderness along the Oklahoma and Arkansas border.
Robbers Cave holds a great variety for us to explore – lakes, mountains, forests, meadows, CAVES, cliffs, and on top of that wildlife such as deer, wild turkey, bears and other critters. We will have multiple crews offering opportunities for first time backpackers to experiences scouts heading to Philmont! Preparing for this trip is very important. Please see the notes below.
