Report: My Brother-in-law and I just visited the Wilhemina Sate Park driving from the Oklahoma side by motorcycle. This is a great ride with winding roads made for a bike and little traffic when we made the run (on Monday and Tuesday.) The views are spectacular and the trees are just now turning to their fall colors. The roads are steep, you will need a bike with power. Plenty of camping available but hotels are 15 plus miles away except for the Queen Wilhemina Lodge (great buffet). Gas can be a problem due to few stations far apart top off often. Put this ride on your list, it will be one of your favorits. Ride safe!
