Chickasaw National Recreation Area


Buckhorn Campground is a relaxed, family-friendly campground conveniently located off Hwy 177 and situated next to Lake of the Arbuckles. Popular recreational activities include boating, swimming, fishing, bicycling, and birdwatching.__ Whether you prefer to jump in the cool, refreshing lake to escape the heat of summer or sit next to a cozy campfire in the cooler months, Buckhorn Campground is a great outdoor destination for visitors of all ages and backgrounds.


Bring your boats or jet skis and cruise the lake, or pack your fishing rods to catch some of the state's finest bass, perch, and crappie.This area is most popular for water sports, but hiking and biking are also great ways to explore the park and take in scenic views of Lake of the Arbuckles.


Buckhorn is one of only two campgrounds in Chickasaw National Recreation Area with electric hookups and water. It's an ideal location for families and friends looking for a mix of camping and boating. C and D Loops are open year-round while A and B Loops close during the winter months.

Just Perfect!

This is one of our favorite tent and trailer camping locations in Oklahoma. It is quiet with all the hookups you need plus restrooms and showers within in a close walk on Loop C where reservations are required. Great sunset views over the Lake of the Arbuckles, great hiking in the Chickasaw National Recreation Area, and close shopping in Sulphur.

Large and level sites

Really enjoyed Buckhorn, but I like The Point better just because there’s less of it. We were on loop C by the water which was nice but really pretty busy spot to be. Facilities are super clean and a great spot for families. We had a tent and a trailer and PLENTY of room for more if we needed to.
