Seasonally Open

I went to go check out campgrounds around the lake and this one had been recommended by someone in the community of Waurika. Unfortunately when I went out here though it was closed!! There is a nice mercantile and boat storage area just outside of the gate which could explain the recommendation…

  • While it was very inconvenient that I could not enter it was nice to know they at least give you a recommendation for where to go during this seasonal closure.
