Featured Location for June 2019: Alabaster Caverns State Park

Alabaster Caverns State Park is one of the state’s most unique destinations nestled on 200 acres of land outside Freedom, Oklahoma. Home to one of the largest natural gypsum caves in the world and the only gypsum cave in the United States, this rarity is open to the public for daily guided tours by purchase. Additionally, the property boasts four caves that are maintained for spelunking for guests who are properly permitted and pay the associated fee. Alabaster Caverns State Park was transformed into an old mine shaft for the forthcoming film “The Bygone”, which used the Oklahoma Film Enhancement Rebate Program and will celebrate its world premiere at the 2019 deadCenter Film Festival. Filmmakers interested in this location should note that the park has very strict guidelines for filming due to the environmental and preservation concerns, and requests are individually reviewed by Parks Management on a case by case basis. The summer months are especially popular for Alabaster Caverns State Park as guests flock to watch events that feature thousands of bats taking to the skies as the park is home to them during their migratory months.
