Brooken Cove Campground sits along the beaches of Eufaula Lake in the green hills of Oklahoma.
Eufaula Lake has long been recognized for its outstanding fishery. Crappie, sand bass, catfish, and black bass in the lake reach record size. Below the dam, striped bass reaching over 40 pounds have been caught in the tailwaters.
Boating and kayaking are also popular activities, and a boat ramp is provided at the campground for easy lake access.
A variety of hiking trails wind throughout the hills and along the shoreline, offering additional activities for campers.
Brooken Cove Campground offers 73 campsites spread out along the lake shore, along with two large reservable group picnic shelters that can accommodate up to 75 and 100 guests each. A boat ramp, playground and nearby marina help visitors enjoy the lake.
Eufaula Lake is the largest lake located entirely in the state of Oklahoma. It is located on the Canadian River, 27 miles upstream from its confluence with the Arkansas River. The dam, completed in 1964 and dedicated by President Lyndon B. Johnson, was originally built for flood control.
With over 600 miles of shoreline and 102,000 surface acres of water, Eufaula Lake offers a variety of recreational opportunities. The shoreline ranges from vast expanses of sandy beaches to rocky bluffs, and the scenery is especially beautiful during the fall months, when visitors are treated to an array of vivid autumn colors.
Robber's Cave State Park and two other state parks located on Eufaula Lake offer a variety of recreational experiences, including golf courses, swimming pools and hiking trails.
The historic town of Eufaula offers an array of antique shops and restaurants.

We stayed here for only one night but will definitely be back. Nice campsites with room between sites. Most sites have lake views and there is alit of access to the lake
We camped 8/28/2020 - 9/3/2020 in Space 62 right on the water, 30 amp, shared water, open shot to satellites. Sewer dump and trash bins nearby. Nice boat ramp and sandy but rocky beaches. The gate entrance was unmanned and we never saw a park ranger or had anyone confirm we had paid. We arrived shortly after Hurricane Laura, so her aftermath caused rain and lightning storms but we certainly cannot fault the park for that.
Nice selection of camping spots, Manny with shade and lots of space to spread out. Best spots are close to the boat ramp, which may be a deterrent to some.
Great playground for kids, clean bathrooms with showers. There are several sandy beach areas and the water is shallow for a great distance out, making it good for swimming.
Beware of an abundance of geese who frequent the park and leave lovely little presents everywhere, including the beach areas. Was disappointed that the grass has not been mowed in a while when we were there.
