Roman Nose State Park features 11 cabins and Roman Nose Lodge features 22 guest rooms. The 22-room lodge, originally constructed in 1956, has been renovated to incorporate the natural landscape of the area. The reconstruction emphasizes the lodge’s original mid-century design, while beautifully updating the look to today’s modern standards. A restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner is located within the lodge.
Roman Nose State Park offers many breathtaking views of the canyon, gypsum rock cliffs and is home to three natural springs. Guests of Roman Nose Lodge will enjoy a wealth of recreational activities at the park’s 18-hole golf course, swimming pool, equestrian trails, hiking trails and two on-site lakes (Lake Boecher and Lake Watonga). Swimming in the lakes is not allowed, but guests can fish and boat in the no-wake lakes. Miniature golf, a general store and horse riding stables are all available. Rentals include canoes, kayaks and paddleboats. Group hayrides are available by reservation. A group camp, picnic areas, tent, teepee and RV campsites are located throughout the park.
The Watonga Public Library has a long and rich history. The library was started in 1906 through the efforts of Mrs. T. B. Ferguson, wife of Oklahoma’s 6th Territorial Governor and a small group of concerned women including Mrs. A. W. Sunderland, Mrs. E. E. McCord, Mrs. Isabelle Piper and others and contained about 1,100 books.
“The Company” Watonga Community Theatre, Inc. began in 1983 with its first production
of Plaza Suite in a junior high school auditorium. Since that inauspicious
beginning Watonga Community Theatre has performed more than 40 productions
in its permanent home, the Liberty Theatre, a facility conceived and
renovated from an old movie house. An annex housing the costume, dressing
rooms and scene shop was added in 1992.
