Sarge Creek Campground is situated along the banks of Kaw Lake in north central Oklahoma.
Most of the campsites here are shaded and visitors looking to camp with their horses or ride Kaw Lakes Five Fingers Equestrian Trail, will find Sarge Creek Campground to be very accommodating.
The lake and river are known for producing some of Oklahoma's largest catfish, as well as crappie, white bass and walleye, making it a popular destination for anglers.
Hikers and horseback riders are attracted to the beautiful trails along the eastern shore. The Eagle View Hiking Trail is approximately 12 miles long and runs between Osage Cove and Burbank Landing.
The Five Fingers Equestrian Trail extends from the Sarge Creek Cove Public Use Area to Burbank Landing.
Hunters' skills are tested with excellent populations of whitetail deer, turkey, quail, rabbit and squirrel. During the fall waterfowl seasons Kaw Lake often attracts large numbers of migrating ducks and geese.
During the winter visitors are likely to spot migrating bald eagles, as Kaw Lake has one of the biggest populations in the state.
Sarge Creek Campground offers 53 campsites with modern amenities like electric hookups, drinking water and flush toilets, including one large group campsite that can accommodate up to 60 guests. A boat ramp provides easy access to the lake.
Campsites 1-7 are available for equestrian camping, and horse pens are provided.
The lake covers 17,000 surface acres and has 168 miles of shoreline. Completed in 1976, the dam and lake help provide a recreational oasis for outdoor enthusiasts of all types.
The area holds a number of historical sites, including several Native American settlements, archeological sites and the Pioneer Woman Museum.

Clean campsite. Fire pit had recently been cleaned out. Nice little path down to the water from this spot. Water and electricity available but didn't use this trip. If you hammock camp, the poles on the canopy are perfectly spaced for a great hang. No firewood to buy on premises so pick it up in the near town of Ponca City if you want to light a fire. There is dead wood around as well if you want to source it that way.
This is a great location, right on the lake with lots of trees. But with our one encounter the camp host was very rude and would not let us park until they cleaned up our area. We were there at our scheduled time and they hadn’t even started. They have a brand new shower house, but it is very nasty and ill maintained.￼ no place to put your clean clothes without getting them wet. This was approximately May 2018. It may have improved by now.￼
