This recreation area is part of Skiatook Lake
Nice, quiet and clean off the beaten path. Saw a couple of restroom locations. Pretty views!
This is a nice little campground that overlooks Skiatook Lake with many of the campsites right on the lake. If you are lucky you can snag a site that is up on the bluff over the lake, the views are amazing (and it was less windy than the sites down on the lakeshore)! But be careful because if you roll out the wrong side of your tent you could end up with a sharp drop into some cold water. The campground was pretty empty when I was there due to late season and some poor weather expected to roll in. There wasn’t anyone at the gate, but there was an honor system pay tube, and the campground host was really helpful. The vault toilet was really clean which made me not mind as much the lack of showers. There seemed to be more tent campers here which might have had to do with the lack of RV delights like dump station or hookups. The area is run by the US Army Corps of Engineers and does not take reservations. The true draw is the lake, which is beautiful and had a nice boat ramp and dock. Might be a good place to spend a little quiet time.
