Cedar Lake is an amazing place to take the whole family. We really enjoyed getting to swim in the water and do some fun water activities like kayaking! There are also some really great trails nearby that make staying here worth it. The views are spectacular. The campground was great, clean, and reasonably priced. We stayed 4 nights here, and did something different everyday. There really is something for everyone. We also rode our bikes along the lake and other trails. They have a really good shopping area about 10 miles away that have some good shops. There is also some restaurants in this area too. The campsites do have fire rings and a table. We cooked dinner one night over the fire, but ate food we brought and ate out some other nights. It’s nice that the campground is located close to other things. It was a little crowded when we went but I think that’s just how it is in the summer.
we took a group of Trail Life boys there and we had a good time. There are plenty of good trails near by and we used Cedar Lake as our basecamp. The only problem we had was that someone ran their loud generator all night. Overall it was a great experience for the boys. TLUSA OK-0716
We completed this campout with another family and this is our favorite campout in Oklahoma. The large pines, the facilities and the hiking is wonderful. Cedar lake is beautiful. When we lived in Oklahoma we would camp out regularly in March, bring jackets and stuff to keep warm because it is still very chilly, but warm enough during the day for some nice hiking.
We always have Cedar Lake on our list of places to visit in Spring and Fall. The sites are well spaced and even on busy weekends you aren't really ever bothering anyone. The lake offers plenty of chances to fish and swim but we go for the trails. We enjoy the Horsetheif Springs Trail which starts behind the dump station. You can either hike a small couple mail loop or extend it to 14 miles. Be warned however that the trails can be overgrown in the late Summer/Fall as a recent fire cleared some of the trees on the trail. The campground does have flush toilets, tables, and fire rings and would be a great spot for a family visit.
This last minute, weekend trip was hands down my favorite camping trip that I have ever taken. The lake was absolutely beautiful and so were the campsites. Our camp host was super nice and got us a great spot to spend the weekend. I needed an electric hookup to charge the batteries on my boat every night and he was able to give us a site with hookups close to the boat ramp. The weather was perfect! I can’t wait to bring my family back!
