DescriptionThe "Peaceful Valley of Rippling Watersö appropriately describes Chickasaw National Recreation Area, as it is known for its many mineral springs, cool water, flora, fauna, and wildlife. Here one's mind may wander back in time to when the early American Indian came to this area to rest, relax at the water's edge, and hunt for their food from the abundant wildlife. This area has significant geological and hydrological features and lies in the transitional ecotones of the Eastern deciduous forest and the Western prairies. Chickasaw has classic examples of Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) architectural craftsmanship and ingenuity--included is one of the largest and most intact designed cultural landscapes of that period blending harmoniously with the natural environment. A trail system designed and constructed during this period still meets the needs of today's casual walker as well as the avid runner. Chickasaw has been the setting for generations of traditional family activity that represents part of our American heritage. It adds measurably to the quality of life for visitors and area residents by providing opportunities to experience a wide range of outdoor experiences--swimming, boating, fishing, hiking, and observing nature, hunting, camping, and picnicking--reminding us of the rural character in the history of the American people
