In the northeastern corner of Oklahoma, just a stone’s throw from Siloam Springs, there exists some of the most beautiful natural scenery you’ll find anywhere in Oklahoma. But you won’t find much disc golf except for a single 18-hole course at Natural Falls State Park in Colcord. 

Natural Falls State Park

19225 E 578 Rd, Colcord, OK 74338

Designed by Less Pulliam and Kenny Morton, the disc golf course at Natural Falls State Park opened in 2012 as a nine-hole with re-tire baskets. It has since been upgraded to a full 18 holes with brand new Innova DISCatcher baskets. Natural tees are denoted by quality signage with hole distances and diagrams.

The intermediate-level course features an average length of 316 feet and an even mix of open spaces and dense forestry. There are a generous number of par-4s that will allow even a beginner to escape with a score they’ll be happy about.

Disc golf is just one of many wonderful activities that await visitors to Natural Falls. The park is open to both campers and day visitors, and includes sand volleyball, horseshoe pits, playgrounds, fishing, shelters and picnic tables, and 120 acres of hiking trails.

But of course, the highlight of the park is its titular waterfall. The 77-foot waterfall was seen by millions when it was featured in the 1974 classic “Where the Red Fern Grows.”

Other Things To Do In Colcord

If you’re planning a visit to the Colcord area, you’re likely going to want to check out more than just the disc golf course. In addition to the incredible Natural Falls State Park, there are many other attractions that make that neck of the woods a great place to bring the family.

Just a five minute drive from Natural Falls is the beautiful Flint Creek Water Park – a pristine spring-fed swimming hole that stays refreshingly cold even in the thick of summer.
