My wife, our dog and I went up for a few days in the Spring of 2018. Was a nice location and some really pretty scenery. Not to mention some nice trails. Highly recommend with the great staff they have, and places to explore.
We came here for the Labor Day weekend and it did not disappoint. Not a “thrills a minute” park. However, if you enjoy hiking, biking, relaxing or small lake fishing this is the place. We stayed in the full hook up section in the White Tail portion of the park. Bathrooms and showers very clean. Heavily patrolled by the park ranger. Lots of stickers in the grass so be mindful when you walk your dog.
Coming in from the east, entering this area is like finding an oasis in the sprawling desert. In June, the road entered under a green canopy, very unlike the hours of driving through Oklahoma it took to get here. It is a very well manicured place.
There are a couple camping areas, and we ended up in the Whitetail Campground, which had the most tent sites. There are lots of RV sites here and in the other areas. Within minutes of arriving, the park ranger came over to see we payed for the site online, then cheerfully left us to it.
If you can, choose site A in the Whitetail area. It is shaded, spacious and the most private. It was a very hot day, but the shade and breeze made the experience quite lovely. There is a VERY short, flat, hiking trail around this campground. There is also a nearby pool which is open in the afternoon, and charges a few dollars to swim. We unfortunately didn't visit the actual spring, so I'm not sure how that is.
The bathrooms here are pretty nice. One shower and two stalls in the men's room. Dividing walls are just a little short. Very clean though!
At nightfall, we were harassed by a couple raccoons, but they kept their distance and retreated after we repeatedly threw some stones and made loud noises towards them. But they were persistent at first, so just keep a lookout for them. We saw one deer here, and found a couple ticks, so bring your bug spray!
Glass Mountain is the nearby attraction a drive away, and nearby Woodward should have just about everything you need to stock up.
About your average state park. They were clean and easily navigated. Nicely shaded, and several options for camping. Like other reviewers said, mix of tents and RVs and huge--I mean prehistoric cousins huge-- mosquitoes in low, treed areas.
The spring area has is a pretty area with a little trail and plaques with information. The pool is nice, and there are several playgrounds.
We stayed with our GS troop for a night and went to Alabaster Caverns for a bat cave tour then on to Gloss Mountains State Park (no camping, but a fun stop).
We didn't explore any trials, and I don't recall seeing trail heads.
We stayed over a weekend. Grounds are well maintained, bathrooms are clean and staff is super friendly. You can choose a site with all the amenities (flat concrete slab, water/elec/sewer) or a spot back in the trees. Plenty of hiking and biking available.
Has a few good hiking trails. 4 or 5 playgrounds which was fun. The bathroom seemed to be cleaned a few times a day. We would stay there again.
The campgrounds at Boiling Springs State Park are small and the majority are RV sites. There are GIANT mosquitos in the late spring and summer and they are in swarms. The park is not as well taken care of as it used to be. Small trails are near by and there are plenty of deer and raccoons to see. Lots of trees on the outer campsites in the Whitetail Campground.
What a great place to camp in Oklahoma! The campground was well maintained, the bathrooms were spotless, and the variety of trails was endless. I stayed here just for the night and a short hike the next morning before continuing to Colorado, and if I had not been on a tight schedule I would have stayed longer! They have several options for camping including group sites, RV hookups, and cabins, playgrounds for the kids, a pool with concessions, and lots of hiking and biking options. The rangers were very friendly and informative, giving me lots of great information, not just about this park, but all Oklahoma State Parks. They were very dog friendly and mine enjoyed the stay as well, with lots of things to sniff and see. Dogs are allowed on all trails and inside most buildings as long as they are on a 10 foot leash.
Great historic hot springs park with some hiking, swimming, and wildlife, plus lots of other parks and things to do close by. We came here for a birding festival and saw many new birds. The pools are a good mix of historic construction and modern safety and amenities. Really beautiful.
Yay: nice and shady, large sites, love the springs, great ranger office.
Nay: can be crowded. Bugs. Trains nearby.
Surprise: I’ve been to a lot of springs and this one was especially nice. Lots of great trails to explore too.
Well kept, great hiking, nice activities.
