Springs, streams and lakes are the central attractions at Chickasaw National Recreation Area. Its mineral springs were once sought for medicinal properties. Travertine Creek and Rock Creek attract swimmers and waders, while Veterans Lake draws anglers. Lake of the Arbuckles, the park's largest hydrological feature, offers recreational opportunities from swimming to boating to waterskiing. Forest trails provide recreation for hikers and birdwatchers.
