The Oklahoma Tourism & Recreation Department has announced that La Ratatouille is the new restaurant operator for Oklahoma State Parks.
"Reopening these restaurants has been a top priority of mine since joining the agency,” said OTRD Executive Director Shelley Zumwalt. “Our goal from day one was to conduct the process with integrity and transparency, while also giving the citizens of Oklahoma a dining experience they would enjoy and be proud of. We can’t wait to work with La Ratatouille to offer excellent food and service inside our state parks.
”La Ratatouille is an Oklahoma based company that owns and operates Falcone’s Pizzeria, Jonny Cakes Bakery, multiple food trucks and a robust catering business that has served The OKC Thunder, The Zoo Amphitheater and other notable businesses in the state. La Ratatouille is an active member of the community, working with numerous nonprofits including Feed the Children and United Way of Oklahoma.
“We are excited to partner with OTRD to provide restaurant services inside of six parks across the state,” said La Ratatouille Owner & Operator J.P. Wilson. “The current facilities at these parks are top notch, and we are honored to be trusted with the responsibility of bringing a first-class dining experience to Oklahomans and park visitors from across the country.”

- Lake Murray State Park in Ardmore
- Quartz Mountain State Park in Lone Wolf
