Northwest Oklahoma, known as Red Carpet Country, features massive mesas and expansive prairies. The folklore of the cowboy, the great cattle drives, and the region’s Native American heritage continue to influence the culture of Northwest Oklahoma. Marked by dinosaur tracks, lined with red canyons, and blanketed in prairie grass, this section of Oklahoma is distinctive for its wide open spaces. Although the terrain is mostly flat, with fields planted in wheat and other grains and shortgrass pastures where cattle graze, some of the most unique scenery in Oklahoma is found here. Sand dunes up to 40’ high, a lava-topped mesa, a vast plain of salt, the world’s largest gypsum cave open to the public, and boiling springs all contribute to the diversity of Northwest Oklahoma.
This region is comprised of Alfalfa, Beaver, Blaine, Cimarron, Dewey, Ellis, Garfield, Grant, Harper, Kay, Kingfisher, Major, Noble, Texas, Woods and Woodward counties. Four tribal nations are headquartered in this region.
