….and some people just can't handle it. I want to like this place, but most people seem to be abusing this public area. Found a mound of trash near the exit that I assumed was from a local that made an effort to de-trash since the rest of the area pretty clean. If it weren't for that it would have done better. Plenty of space for tents everywhere, just little to no amenities. The lake was very calm, but difficult to access right in front of camp, I would suggest walking to the boat ramp for that. Nice and close to the Blue Whale of Catoosa and old route 66 which is partly how we ended up here. I would stay here for more than one night if the need arose.
This was our first stay in Oklahoma camping. I highly recommend staying at this location or the location across Fort Gibson Like(Johnson Bay). The campsites are very specious and most if not all of them overlook the lake. We stayed here during December and there was only one other camper present. There are vaulted toilets and water around the camping area. You can stay up to 14 days for free at this location. We will return next time we are passing through!

Have stayed there a couple of times when passing through. No cable TV. Staff was very courteous and helpful. On one occasion we were delayed and arrived late. The staff called us before the office closing time and let us know which site to use and told us not to worry that they'd see us the next day. No trees and fairly close to a primary road and an interstate highway.
We'd stay there again.
I have stayed there many times this past year. My son lives there full time. The staff is great. Very helpful and courteous. I've gotten to know some of the residents and yes, the majority are full time residents. Not a lot of room to open up awnings but for anyone who knows Oklahoma you don't open them up often anyway if you want to keep them.
This is a City run state park. A very nice lake with a swimming beach, hiking trails, and recently added ATV course 😡 they screwed up a lot of pristine wilderness area to try and attract ATVs. There two camping areas. The one on the north east side of the lake is a bit more primitive but still has hook ups and a bathroom (seasonal) the main camp is open year round.
We really enjoyed our stay. The lake was up about 10 ft according to the camp host and had been flooded most of the summer. Both boat ramps were under water and several of the sites were still flooded too. The campground has a shower house on one end and vault toilets on the other. All sites are water and electric only. Most sites were older asphalt pads, but there were several newer sites, all concrete, and huge.
