Moving on in the countdown of the TOP 10 REASONS TO VISIT KINGFISHER WINTER NIGHTS. Remember each day we’ll share a reason, with the #1 reason being announced on November 26th- OPENING DAY!

This is the third year for the popular Kingfisher Winter Nights Safari Scavenger Hunt sponsored by Harris and Mecklenburg.

Children visiting Kingfisher Winter Nights have the opportunity to pick up a scavenger hunt form at the front of the park and try to spot the animals listed hidden throughout the park. If you’re driving thru the park, a volunteer should offer you a scavenger hunt form at your car window upon entry. However, if you are walking thru the park, please go to the train station window to pick up your form. Upon completing the form, you can turn it in at the Exit Tunnel where cars exit the park, near the Girl Scout Cabin.

If you turn in the completed form at the EXIT TUNNEL, you’ll get to choose a prize from the prize box. Plus, your form will be kept for a drawing for a large prize basket at the end of the season!!!

*We will not have a prize box at the Train Station. However, if you can’t go to the Exit Tunnel but still want to be entered in the end of season drawing, you can turn in your completed form at the Train Station.

The #7 REASON to visit Kingfisher Winter Nights is our Harris and Mecklenburg sponsored SAFARI SCAVENGER HUNT!!

OGE is aware of the issues everyone is experiencing impacting system reliability on the 69 kV line from El Reno to Enid. OGE is working plans to upgrade the 60+ mile stretch of line to a new 138 kV line.

Kingfisher Electric and OMPA are preparing to upgrade our substations to meet the high voltage change.

The project is scheduled for 2024-25. While we are working to get this scheduled sooner, it is complex and requires a lot of material that is not readily available in a warehouse.

While this is not an immediate fix, and it is out of the hands of local control, we are excited that a project of this size to improve service is in the works.

Our rates are going to go even higher. I wonder how many more outages are going occur from now until then.

OGE has restore our incoming transmission feed and Kingfisher Electric is at our Bowman Substation monitoring our incoming feed, and are advising that we are back to normal operations.

OGE has identified the cause of the outage to a burned out jumper on the 69 kV transmission line between Dover and kingfisher, which has been replaced.

Why is kingfisher constantly effected by issues? I was on Cimarron for 3 years and lost power ONCE. I’ve been back on city electric for 2 1/2 months and have lost it 3 times.

A Vibrant Community to Live, Work, Play & Visit

Welcome to the City of Kingfisher, a vibrant community with a thriving local economy on the outskirts of Oklahoma City, opening the gateway to Northwest Oklahoma.

With a rich history predating statehood and progressive planning to prepare for tomorrow, Kingfisher is the ideal place to live, work, play and visit. As the county seat of Kingfisher County, Oklahoma, our city is most notably recognized as the birthplace of Sam Walton. Kingfisher is situated on a part of the Chisholm Trail. Main permanent tourist attractions include the Chisholm Trail Museum, Gov. Seay Mansion, Veterans Memorial, and Jesse Chisholm statue. These facilities preserve relics and information of the community’s unique heritage.
