4 Reviews of George Payne Cossar State Park
A decent but older campground.

We stay at Cossar pretty often, due to it being close to home. We have always stayed on the Yocona Ridge loop, and it has been a nice campground. The facilities are dated, but they keep them very clean. We did drive through the other loop (it was empty and closed at the time, the ranger let us look at it) and it appears to be much older than Yocona Ridge. There were trees/limbs down everywhere and the sites were pretty close to each other. 

We had decent cell phone service here. There is no park WIFI. There is a Frisbee golf course that has gotten better over time. The course is now marked very well. The miniature golf course is old, but kids will still like it. 

Some of the campers are also employees of the park. One lady just kept coming over and talking non-stop on this visit.

Rough shape for a State Park

We were staying at another nearby campground and decided to drive through GPC State Park to scout out campsites for our next camping trip. The park is located about 10 minutes off the interstate and it is also on the shores of Enid Lake.

It seems as if they built the park and haven’t done much else with it since. The sites are rough and close together, although there are a few nice spots on the water.

The day use area is nicer with a new pavilion, nice playground and a bare bones mini golf that would probably entertain very young children. They also have disc golf, but I don’t play so I can’t offer an opinion on the condition of that.

There are several cabins onsite that can be rented.

There is a boat ramp, but no swim beach. For those that are just looking for somewhere to hook up a camper for sleeping purposes only and then head out on the lake to fish or for recreation, then this place would probably be ok for you.

Nice lake views

We tent camped for the weekend at George Payne Cossar State Park in March.  It was still a bit cold and the pollen had come out - looked like snow falling in my headlamp.  There is a playground for kids and dogs are allowed at the campgrounds.  We had a nice fire, roasted marshmallows, and wanted to play disc golf but the lake was too high and covered some of them!

Great park

Yokona ridge has a great playground for kids with the putt-putt golf course a short walk away. 4$+tax per person to play. Bathrooms/showers were very spacious and clean.
