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.
Primitive but upgrades coming.
Tents, campers, cars, and RV s allowed.
6 miles west of ramona ok. It doesn't have an address. when someone makes an appointment or books I meet them and guide them in.

We stayed in Seminole, site #22 mid July 2019. Very peaceful campground and this site has awesome amounts of shade from late morning through the rest of the day. Lots of room between sites and grounds were well cared for. This state park is still recovering from all the flooding earlier this year but still has lots to do and see with lodge, golf course, paved trails and a nature center, etc. Our family has agreed we would like to stay here again anytime and are planning to come in fall for sure.
Our goal was to visit Ree Drummond’s businesses in Pawhuska and the Settle Inn RV Park was the perfect spot for an overnight. The campground manager (owner?) was very pleasant and worked with us over several months when we requested reservations almost 8 months in advance. The setting is beautiful, and the atmosphere is very laid back. The price for a full hook up site is also very, very reasonable. One caution, the sites are pretty narrow with some overhanging trees on the corners - we pulled two fifth wheels into two sites and both were within inches of the trees and the edges of each roof while pulling into the sites.
We stayed on campsite 39. It was by the boat ramp. We were there at the first of April and it was beautiful. Scores of down and dead oak laying all around the campgrounds. Vault toilets were fairly clean on our side. Its pretty quiet but I’m fairly sensitive to road noise when I’m camping. And I can hear the highway for sure. But I haven’t found a place in Oklahoma where I can’t so far.
We were so surprised with this park because we’d hardly even heard of it. The campsites were plentiful with beautiful views of the lake. It was early in the season so not very busy. The sites were clean and easy to navigate. We enjoyed the nature center, getting to view a bald eagle and coyote. The lodge is very nice and would definitely recommend to someone who doesn’t want to rough it. I’d like to come back in the summer to take advantage of the pool. We walked along the fitness trail and tried out the recommended activities for fun. We then took one of the longer trails that winds throughout the park. These trails were not well marked but they made for a great Oklahoma hike. We fished near the group camp area as a storm was brewing and we wanted to be near a picnic shelter. The lake is very pretty, would definitely recommend for kayak or boating. The o my issues we had was, we needed a shower and the camp showers which are coin operated did not have hot water as indicated. Made for a very chilly rinse. All in all we will be back!
I grew up on this lake spending countless summers swimming off the beach at Appalachia bay. It’s got so many memories wrapped up in its muddy water and rickety play set. It was a wonderful place to spend my childhood, however it’s not my first or top 10 of locations I’d choose to camp, anymore.
This campground is great! Here are some things I absolutely loved:
- Great/clean campground. This is something I really appreciate about a campground. People seem to pick up after each other. If you see garbage somewhere, please pick it up. Helps so much!!
- Hiking. We did a nearby hike named Hillside Trail and it was gorgeous. The views were stunning!! We did it early in the morning to beat the crowds and it was perfect. About 7 miles rountrip with a little elevation gain.
- Close to water. We went for the day and played in a lake nearby. It was about a 15 minute drive away!
make sure to bring lots of water if you plan to hike because it does get warm! Also bug spray, sunglasses, and some good snacks!
This campground was super cool because it was a little "out dated" but it made it cozy! So many beautiful trees and walking paths that it made the stay great. We would get up in the morning and do a short hike that was nearby, and then finish it off with one of the walking paths around the campground, then had breakfast. It was a great way to start the day. They offer RV sites as well as small cabins you can rent. My family and I took our RV, and had a blast. The sites were big enough for the RV and had a picnic table and fire ring within the site. We didn't feel like we were right on top of our neighbors either which was nice. There is a lake within walking distance, so we would head down there during the day. Dogs are allowed, but need to be on leashes. We brought our dog and he had a blast in the lake. They have a volleyball court set up as well as horse shoes which was fun! You can also rent stand up paddle boards from the front desk to take down to the lake. They also have a club house that has a pool table, although we didn't partake in this. There is an area where you can do laundry too, which we thought was pretty cool. This is definitely considered "glamping" to us :) There is also a boat launch if you need that too. We caught some really awesome weather while we stayed here which made the trip amazing! We will definitely be back.
We've stayed in the Hickory Point camping area twice this year (2018). It was nice. The bathrooms/facilities are CLEAN. The camp host is VERY nice. Our only struggle was neighbors with outdoor speakers. It seems like that could be monitored a little better.
Blue Bill Point was recommended to us last spring (2018), and we've stayed there at least 5 weekends (some extended). The sites are not too close to each other. There are 'full hook-ups," partial, primitive, and day use. We've never encountered loud music or disrespectful neighbors. The swim area is perfect for our toddler grandsons, as it's a slow decline.
For an RV/Trailer camper this place is amazing. Multiple campgrounds within the park. Our favorite is Choctaw with full hookups. Sites are cement and level. All have table, charcoal grill and fire ring. Close to the lake, about 100 yards. Other area are just as good. Other areas don't have septic but each has a dump station. Tent campers have nice areas also.
My husband and I really enjoyed staying at the Wildwood campground. We thought the campsite spaces were a little small, and because we went in the summer it was pretty packed. Actually, all the spots were taken so it was at full capacity. We spent our day hiking and playing in the lake nearby that we were only in the campsite at night. Hiking was amazing here, we recommend spending the morning doing this. We chose to go early to beat the summer heat. Bring bug spray because the mosquitos were crazy. They had some great dog friendly hikes which we really appreciated. At night we enjoyed making s’mores in our campsite using the fire ring provided. We brought our own wood, not sure if a place sells this. Recommend reserving your spot ahead of time, don’t just show up because it will probably be filled.
hammock and tent camping. few skeeters and flys and a friendly coon. great weekend.
we stay here once a year for a family reunions.. we personally pull our camper down there each time there are some spots that are reservable through their website. that we have never had a problem just pulling in and getting a spot. they also offer cabins for families. our favorite part about this park is that they have the Pier 51 Marina and you can rent boats or jet skis also my children love to go down there and feed the fish off the dock it is a great time. they do also have a restaurant down at the marina that is decently priced. I forgot to take a picture of the swimming area but it is very Rocky and my children hate swimming there we don't do it very often because of all the rocks on their feet.
