Robbers Cave State Park is located in the scenic, hilly woodlands of the San Bois Mountains of southeast Oklahoma.

The park and adjoining wildlife management area offers acres of discovery and enjoyment including caves, trout fishing in season, boating, hunting, trails for hikers and horses, sandstone cliffs for climbing and rappelling, and fall foliage viewing. RV and tent campsites, and equestrian campsites are also available. Lodging facilities include the Belle Starr View Lodge, cabins and two group camps. Picnic tables, comfort stations with showers, boat ramps, a swimming beach, swimming pool with bathhouse, playgrounds, miniature golf, hiking trails, paddleboat rentals, and a nature center with naturalist programs/exhibits round out the park's facilities.
Located in Oklahoma, the park was established in 1935. It is named after a cave historically used by outlaws for hiding. The Civilian Conservation Corps developed it during the Great Depression era under President Roosevelt's New Deal program. In addition to its natural beauty and outdoor activities, it also hosts an annual fall festival that attracts thousands of visitors each year.
