Blue Bill Point is located on the banks of Flat Rock Bay on tranquil Fort Gibson Lake in northeastern Oklahoma. Blue Bill is a peaceful campground popular with family groups and retirees. The gradual sloping shoreline offers easy access to the water for fishing, swimming and mooring boats. This protected shallow cove is an ideal location for kayaks and canoes.
The nearly 20,000-acre lake offers excellent boating and swimming opportunities. Anglers enjoy fishing for black bass, white bass, crappie and several varieties of catfish and panfish. The lake's 225 miles of shoreline and thousands of acres of public hunting lands are abundant with wildlife.
This seasonal campground offers 40 family sites and one group day-use picnic shelter, all with electric hookups. Three additional primitive sites without hookups are available. The campground is open 9 months out of the year, March 1 - November 30. Amenities include flush and pit toilets, drinking water, showers, a dump station, 2 boat ramps and courtesy dock.
Blue Bill Point is surrounded by a mixed hardwood forest. A small fishing pond is located a short distance outside the campground. Cultivated fields offer an opportunity to view wildlife as they graze or cross these open areas.
Historic Fort Gibson, established in 1824, served as an important military post on the western frontier for close to 70 years. Now a National Historical Landmark, the site is open to the public year round.
Volunteers reenact the lifestyle of the late 1800s during various events held throughout the year. A reconstructed log stockade, and original barracks, hospital, bakehouse and other structures still stand today.

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.
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.
