    Pawhuska, Oklahoma

    Welcome to Osage Hills State Park Campground, nestled in the scenic woods near Bartlesville, Oklahoma. This place is a real treat for anyone looking to escape into nature. The campground is open year-round and offers a mix of tent, RV, cabin, glamping, and yurt accommodations, so there's something for everyone.

    One of the standout features here is the stargazing. On a clear night, the sky lights up beautifully, making it perfect for those who love to gaze at the stars. The campground itself is pretty and quiet, with spots spaced nicely apart, ensuring you get some peace and privacy.

    The amenities are top-notch. There are new comfort stations with showers and toilets, and the bathrooms are heated, which is a blessing on those chilly nights. There's also a dump station, a playground for the kids, and group spots if you're coming with a bunch of friends or family. Water is available at the sites until November 1st, but restrooms and showers remain operational year-round.

    For those who enjoy a bit of history, the campground was built by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), and you can feel the legacy in the well-maintained trails and structures. Speaking of trails, there are some great ones for hiking, and if you're into fishing or swimming, there's a river and a pool that opens in early June.

    Pets are welcome, so feel free to bring your furry friends along. Just remember to keep them on a leash and clean up after them. Fires are allowed, and there's firewood available for purchase, so you can enjoy a cozy campfire under the stars.

    Overall, Osage Hills State Park Campground is a fantastic spot for a relaxing getaway. Whether you're here for the hiking, the history, or just to unwind, you're in for a great time.
