Default Location of the smallest national park?

Many years ago I was traveling through Oklahoma and stopped at a park that was advertised as America's smallest national park. I can't recall the name of it but I remember it was south of OKC not far from I-35. I have tried to look up information on it recently but can't find it anywhere. Now I wonder if my mind was playing tricks on me. Can anyone give me the name of this park?

Sounds like you might be talking about Guthrie, OK Smallest National Park

It was Platt National Park, near Sulphur, but it changed to Chickasaw National Recreation Area in 1976. Go to nps.gov and click on the Oklahoma map.

Yep, that's it. For some reason, they also removed it's national park status.

Thanks for the information. I didn't realize the park had been downgraded and that's why I couldn't find it. Now I know.
