Welcome to Horseshoe Springs Cabins Blog!

Beat the Heat in cool spring water !

Horseshoe Springs Cabins are located in the heart of the Arbuckle Mountains near Davis, Oklahoma, and close to some great swimming holes to beat this awful August heat.

Our favorite place to swim and wade is at Chickasaw National Recreation Area.  This is a National Park Service site and is very clean and well maintained.  Antelope and Buffalo Springs are the headwaters that create Travertine Creek.  All along the creek there are rocks and dams which make beautiful small waterfalls and swimming holes.  The largest waterfall is named Little Niagara – see photo below.  The best thing about this place is that is FREE !  Check it out at
