This is a great set up especially later in the season when other places are closed. We camped along the river mid October and had plenty of privacy and campsites to choose from. The woman in the front shop was extremely kind and helpful, and I like that they have a separate late-night campground for partiers. Volleyball nets and basketball courts, plus balls you can rent make it a great kid-friendly social spot too.
There aren’t really any fire rings, just rock circles here and there, so you might want to bring a grill or grate for fire cooking.
Great campsite! We enjoyed the view of the lake and plenty of space at our site! The park is nice and spread out and the sites are kept clean and well managed! Loved the rocky beach and how wooded all the sites were!
No firewood available to buy on site. They ran Out of toilet paper, but otherwise everything was great!
I write this review as an observer. I live in the area. The park is gated (un-maned) and access is not restricted. There is a outhouse with water. They have made some improvements in the last few years but this area used to gather a lot of riff-raff. The other camp located just a short distance away is gated (Maned) and the sites all have water and electric. If your on a budge this place is great. If you want to feel a bit more secure, I recommend the other camp! I would not recommend this as a family vacation site.
Sequoyah State Park on Fort Gibson Lake offers a lot and people come from out of state to visit. There's a lodge, restaurant, golf course, paved trail, dirt trails, campgrounds, marina, and horseback riding in summer. I grew up nearby and still enjoy visiting.
All in all, it was a rather nice resort. Bathrooms were reasonably clean, as well as the campgrounds. They have security that patrols, but it can be quite annoying if you are near the road. There are a lot of sites, which means a lot of people, which isn't necessarily an issue for everyone. We rented a raft to float the river, and the whole process was rather convenient and easy, but you have to rent through the resort (cost more than some others in the area). While it wasn't really what I look for in a camping experience, it was a reasonably decent experience. The biggest reason for the lower rating is because we were double charged for 1 campsite because we had 2 cars (total of 4 people). Overall not worth the price in my opinion, definitely not worth double.
Grew up in the area and spent a lot of time here. You can rent all kinds of water crafts even kayaks. There’s a island in the middle called goat island that is fun to check out. It’s a great little lake for fishing, boating, kayaking, hiking and swimming. The Rv sites are close together but the whole area is wooded which makes for some great shade. There are also cabins you can rent and some rental packages available that I screenshot for anyone that wants to go! I love kayaking around here.
This side of the dam isn’t known much for camping, people tend to camp on the other side where you can hike and boat. This side of the dam is for fishing. Spent many many MANY nights going night fishing with my family growing up and it was always so much fun! The camping sites…… they are very close together unless you get the very last one. It’s near a wooded area. The first 2 are out in the open, by the roads, do a cartwheel and you are in the next camping spot… You can put a boat in the river on this side or kayak up and down.
You can not camp at the dam. You can camp at the Bluff down the road. If you do camp at the bluff, I would for sure visit the damn or even go for a day adventure. Getting to it is sketchy, the road turns to dirt and there are areas that people unfortunately dump trash but once you get to the dam (have to walk a little ways) it is beautiful and fun to explore the rocks, hike and for sure go fishing. Watch the rocks on the right side of the damn when the weather is nice bc snakes like to hide out in them (I think it’s cool to find them but most probably won’t) they won’t bother you. You can hike the shoreline down a ways and look for shells and cool driftwood. To get to the dam the ground is uneven and steep in some areas. There is no parking lot. Not many people go down there. Just make sure to not get stuck! There’s washed out areas but cars can make it. Last time I went we found lots of old cow bones along the river which was cool.
