Treasure Hunter Get Together

Do to the hot weather, scheduling conflicts, and a host of other reasons, this years treasure hunter get together will be held Saturday June 21st at 11:00 am at the Wichita Mountain Lodge clubhouse in Medicine Park Oklahoma. I have reseved tables for a noon lunch at the Old Plantaion in downtown Medicine Park.I believe the Old Plantaion is where the original Golden Circle Research team was formed.

For those who want to arrive early I have a friend who is a blacksmith in Medicine Park and he should have his forge fired up for folks to watch an artist at work.

We will meet at the clubhouse at 11:00 and visit for a bit and a little before noon head into town. After lunch we will meet back at the lodge clubhouse for some show and tell and lie swapping.

The Wichita Mountains National Wildlife Refuge is just a short drive away. You can drive up Mt. Scott for a great view of the surrounding area which includes a windmill farm. There are bison and longhorn cattle herds, deer, elk, and other wildlife as well. The refuge has a wonderful visitors center that is open till 6:00 pm.

There is going to be a great bunch of folks at the get together. There will be an authentic treasure map, the watch found by Joe Hunter should be there, as well as other interesting items. If you have something you want to show off bring it as well.

This is open to all treasure hunters and their families. If everyone can give me an idea of how many will be in their group I'll make sure I have reseved enough tables for lunch. There are several other places to eat as well.

There is a jacuzzi suite in the lodge rental and if anyone is interested in staying saturday night your welcome to chip in for the rental and stay. It is very nice. You can view the lodge information at They may have another cabin for rent as well. If you want to stay in a cobblestone cabin you can look up Medicine Park lodging on the internet for a host of little cabins in the area. Lawton offers a number of hotels and a few casinos for those who like to gambel.

Lake Lawtonka and Medicine Creek offer swimming areas. There is a fee for swimming in Medicine Creek. I think it is $2.00 per person. It is real easy to make a day of it in this area. With gas prices like they are you might as well enjoy all you can while here.

If you like to camp e-mail me and I can hook you up with some neat camping at Doris Campground on the refuge.

To get to the lodge just exit off at the Medicine Park exit on Hwy 44 just north of Lawton. Go about 5 miles towards Medicine park. Take a right on East Lake Drive and go another 3/4 miles further and the clubhouse is on the right. I'll try and attach a map. Hope to see you there.
