I love this park! The Camp host are very kind and helpful!
I've stayed here a couple of times the night before starting my hike on the Ouachita Trail. The OT is a 200+ mile trail and this is park is the Western Terminus. The park has tent and RV sites. The tent sites are level and clean.
The bathrooms and showers are very clean. It is a great place to grab a shower after a few days hiking. The showers have plenty of hot water and the water comes out a good rate to make it easy to knock off that trail dirt.
For a small daily fee you can park your car here for the duration of the hike. I have left my car here several times with no issues.
Very well kept campgrounds. Full RV hook ups (30 amp). Also has area for primitive camping. Direct access to miles of hiking trails. Also direct access to approximately 45 miles of ATV trails.
Beautiful park. Lots of trails in the area, lots that start from this park. Level pads, table and fire pit. Nice view! Clean showers and toilets. Really nice place, we will stay here again!!
This State Park is located in SE Oklahoma and is a hidden gem. The park has a number of RV sites and tent sites. There are a number of picnic tables with covers which make preparing and eating meals easy. There are bathrooms with toilets, sinks, showers and hot water. The grounds are well kept. The Park Host was super friendly and a great source of knowledge about the area. It is a great place to start hiking the Ouachita Trail. The Ouachita Trail is a 220 mile trail that travels from Oklahoma to Arkansas. Near the campground the forest is predominantly made up of pine trees, but as you hike along the trail you'll pass through a variety of hardwoods like oak. In the spring the dogwood trees were blooming with flowers. A short distance from the park is the town of Talihena where you can stock up with supplies or grab a bite to eat at one of the local restaurants. We picked up Subway sandwiches on our way into the park and dined in at the El Rancho Mexican Grill on our way out of the park. The El Rancho restaurant had friendly service and great food.
