    I took the kids to the top of MT. Scott. It's any easy 10 min. drive to the top, where there's loads of fun for the kids in climbing the rocks and wandering the trails. A good afternon outing.

    When my father was stationed in Fort Sill we used to visit Mt. Scott often. Would love to visit the area again . Brings back fine memories to look at pictures of the town and vicinity.

    I just wanted to say that the last time I was at Mt.Scott I was probably 10 years old. I was there at the time with my dad. Later on I married a guy who worked on the guard railing at Mt.

    A great place to visit. There is a camp nearby but it only has elect. hook-up. It would be outstanding if there were some full hook-ups. Don't miss the visitors center.

    Question: Me, my wife and another couple are planning a trip to the Mt. Scott area in a couple of weeks, is there a place close by to tent camp? Can we bring a dog? Can we build a fire on the ground?...
