Great weekend getaway

Nice clean park with the friendliest staff. Boating, kayaking, swimming, camping, hiking. We always enjoy our visits to this park. Facilities and grounds are well kept.

Good 1-night Stop Off

A nice place for a one night stop off. Nothing fancy. Owners are super nice. They offer military discount. They have a chicken coop and sell fresh eggs for $3/dozen. They have a small swimming pool. The old cotton gin on site is a cool feature. It was full of dusty furnishings. Looks like they used it as a venue in the past. The back row of the park appears to be full timers. Be prepared to hear trains blasting their horns all night long.

Beautiful

Would recommend anyone to go check it out. Take some cash they have peddle boats and kayaks you can rent and a little fun park with carnival type ride and water slides.

Nice little state park

Great little state park right on the shores of Tom Steed Reservoir. Sites are well spaced. Campground is well maintained. Good fishing. Lots of walking area around the lake. Friendly staff. Most all sites have a view of the water. You’ll need to make reservations to ensure you get a site. This is not a huge campground. It’s very quiet and relaxing. Not a lot of shade. Good view of the Witchita Mountain range in the background. The Witchita Wildlife Preserve is nearby and worth taking the family to see free roaming bison.

Peaceful and serene

If you are looking for peace and quiet this is the place. It is a National Dark Sky site and perfect for star gazing. The sites are almost 70 feet apart. Well maintained. Daily activities run by staff. Great hiking and a nice lake. Staff super friendly. If you love nature this is a great spot. It’s worth a couple day trip. They even have a herd of longhorn steer.

Just a stop off at best

This site is located on Altus Air Force Base. It only has 12 sites. You must be a Department of Defense ID card holder to stay on base. The camp area has little to offer. It is only $17 a night and a good stop off if you are in the area. You do have the security of being on a military base.

Really nice place

We stayed at the lodge. Nice rooms. Really good restaurant. Nice hiking trails. Haven’t stayed at a campsite though.

Nice place to stay the night .

Good clean camp ground ..I have stayed here several times

Great area, lots of things to do

We camped here in May 2019 in the tent camping area right on the river, just below the dam.   There is no electricity for the tent sites.  There is water, but not at every tent site.  Each tent site had a picnic table, fire ring and grill.  This campsite caters to RV's and it looks like several of the RV's live there year round.  There is a store.  We were the only ones camping in the tent area until our last day, we stayed 3 nights.  There is a bathroom (no shower) at one end.  Other bathrooms in the campground have showers.  We drove to the bathroom by the store and took a shower one day.  Even though we were the only tent campers, there was an extreme amount of traffic on the road.  The area had record amounts of rain and all the gates on the dam were open which had not happened in 20 years.  So, there were a lot of locals that came to see it.  We climbed Quartz Mountain on the first day.  There is not a well marked trail, you just have to try and find the path of least resistance and not die.  The view is well worth the hike (hiking shoes are a must, lots of slick rock).  You can see all the surrounding mountains, the dam, the lake, etc. from the top.  There are many hiking trails, not very many bike trails.  There is a paved bike trail, but it's not very long.  We did use our bikes to ride around the campground and up on top of the dam.  Tent sites are $10/night. If you're looking for a campground with lots of amenities, this is a good one.

Hidden gem

Great place to camp and unwind. The park hosts were awesome. Lots of wildlife. Great trails, but some can be challenging. Warm water in the Kiowa Campground. This is an IDSP, so it's great for astrophotography.
