Scenic Ridge Cabin near Meers, Oklahoma was our home for four days over spring break, 2012, so
that we could relax and explore the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge. It is located about a half hour
northwest of Lawton and is an easy 3 1/2 hour drive from Dallas. The area has much to see and do and
there are a number of historic sites nearby. Meers Store and Restaurant is only about 5 minutes from
the cabin, and is well known for it's wonderful burgers and steaks. They raise their own longhorn beef,
which is very lean and tasty, and the historic buildings, here, are remnants of an old gold rush years ago.
Medicine Park is a town about 15 minutes from the cabin and is very unique. It was built as Oklahoma's
first resort town back in 1908 and has many unique buildings and cottages that are made out of
cobblestone. Medicine Creek flows through the old downtown where there are shops and restaurants,
along with a nice creek walk, and lakes all around the area.
eat or back to the cabin to play some games, watch a movie, read or relax. The hammock strung out
in the shade of the trees just beyond the front porch was very relaxing. From the hammock you have
great views of Mount Sheridan and other mountains and the breeze would just rock you back and forth.
The Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge is just minutes from
the cabin and it was one of the main reasons that we chose this
area. It offers over 15 miles of hiking trails, beautiful mountain
views, driving tours and a great deal of wildlife. The refuge is
home to many large animals, like longhorn cattle, buffalo, elk
and other wildlife. One of our favorites were the prairie dogs,
which were very plentiful and incredibly entertaining.
Scenic Ridge Cabin is located close to everything that we
wanted to see. We could be some place in minutes, do some
hiking or exploring and then head into town to grab a bite to
The cabin we rented is very unique. It is a rustic, octagon shaped cabin that sits on about two acres in
a beautiful hilly area at the foot of the Wichita Mountains. It has a large covered front porch with
comfortable rocking chairs that face the mountains. The area has many boulders and interesting rock
formations and you will see these throughout the mountains when you are hiking or driving.
This cabin rental worked out great for our family of four. It has a small sleeping loft with two full-size
beds for our teenagers, while downstairs offers an open living room, kitchen and dining area, along
with a bedroom and bathroom. The bedroom has a king sized bed and the bathroom is quite
spacious, with a nice shower and garden tub. They did a great job with the furnishings and decor
and everything was very comfortable. This cabin was also equipped with Satellite TV, WiFi, and
game consoles and they even had a number of movies on DVD, along with horseshoes and croquet.
If you enjoy a nice wood fire they have a wood stove in the cabin and a nice fire ring in the front yard,
with views of the mountains and camp chairs. However, while we were there it was too windy to have
a fire outside.
All and all our family had a wonderful time. The cabin had everything we needed and it was ideal for
exploring the area. During our four days there we took a drive up to the top of Mount Scott, hiked a
couple nice trails, took a tour of the Holy City where they have an annual Easter pageant, viewed some
of the wildlife, enjoyed some great meals, played games, relaxed and just had fun as a family.
