No matter the season there is always something to do in the Arbuckles.

Rent an ATV at the Crossbar Ranch, take a zip across the mountains, splash in the cool water or spend the afternoon learning of our local history with a tour in one of our incredible museums.


We take out most of the 1 hour rides here on our ranch (Wolfe Ranch) as well as several private ranches that we have made arrangements to ride on.   Most of our 2 hour and longer rides are taken out in the beautiful 10,000 acre Chickasaw National Recreation Area.  WOW!!!   All rides are very scenic with many photo opportunities.

Two guests at a time are comfortably secured by a monitored seatbelt restraint system before being hoisted in reverse to their view point 777 ft. away.   The viewing point is a 130 foot tower on the mountain above Collings Castle, from which point you will have a  spectacular view of Turner Falls.  Feel the thrill of release as you zip back 777 ft. to the landing zone  located at the Curio Shop/Overlook of Turner Falls.


The history of Davis is on display at our museum, where you can browse for hours and not see everything.  You will find displays on schools, Churches, Music, Medicine, Dentistry, Civic Organizations, Military, Uniforms, Fire Departments, Police Departments, Railroad, Farm Implements, and Photographs of the area.  We have recently added the jail door and bunk from the early-day jail in Davis, and a lavatory from one of the earlier barber shops, displays from the Davis News, Hutchins Funeral Home and more.  The museum is recently remodeled  and we are very proud of our home, the 1907 Santa Fe Depot.

Our overnight summer camp in the Arbuckle’s of southern Oklahoma is much like other Y programs where an emphasis is placed on learning skills, developing character and making friends. But few environments are as special as camp, where kids become a community as they learn both how to be more independent and how to contribute to a group as they engage in physical, social and educational activities. Camping teaches self- reliance, a love for nature and the outdoors, and the development of attitudes and practices that build character and leadership—all a midst the fun of camp fires, canoeing, archery, talent shows, and meaningful relationships.

The Cross Bar Ranch is located just west of Davis, Oklahoma in the heart of the majestic Arbuckle Mountains.  The ranch is 6,500 acres and offers Jeep, Rock Crawler, UTV, ATV, and dirt bike trails for all skill levels.  Being located in the mountains provides lots of different terrain.  Places in the ranch have rugged steep rock trails while in other parts of the ranch the trails whined you through the shadows of the trees.  Several of the trails hold water creating a muddy adventure, something most of our guests don’t shy away from!  With over 100 miles of trails, the Cross Bar Ranch offers something for everyone!  The ranch is owned by the City of Davis, OK and operated and managed by Midground Creators (devepment company).   We also offer rentals and have RV sites available.


Laugh your cares away with a float trip down the Washita.  The river float trip is approximately 4 miles. Your group will meet at the River Bottom Campground, and we will transport you to the source of the float where your tubes and life jackets will be waiting.  Special tubes are available for your ice chests–so bring your favorite snacks and beverages!  You are free to meander down the winding river at your own pace.  Stop and picnic along the way if you’d like.  Your journey will end where it started–back at the River Bottom Campground–at the flag pole.
