The Oklahoma Campground up 7 miles from Willard, WA was a pleasant place to stay for a quick, overnight getaway. There was sufficient room for one or two tents per campsite and the tables and fire pits were serviceable. While Moss Creek Campground is rated higher on some sites, Oklahoma feels a bit farther away from civilization. toilets were clean and camp host was helpful and friendly.
This campground was a great escape from the 4th of July noise and crowds. The entire campground was clean and all the toilet facilities were spotless. We were tent camping and appreciated the level campsites and 10’ tables. Our site, #3, is non-reservable and HUGE. The riverfront was a bonus.
Large flat sites, many in groups; ideal for group camping. Vault toilets. Pump water. 2 nd bucket pumped mostly clear. Taste fine. Creek accessible from sites 0-3 only. Site 3 only one with creek view. Plentiful fire wood scavenge-able. About 1/2 are reservable.
Right on a shallow and narrow part of the little white salmon river its good for kids to splash around. Monte carlo trail 52 is just outside the campground. It's quiet and beautiful. Will go again
Oklahoma campground is mainly a pleasant overflow area if you can't find a site at the slightly more scenic Panther Creek campground down the road. Clear and flat, Oklahoma was named for where an influx of settlers were coming from in the late 1900s. The nice features are ease of use, being next to a wonderfully wild little stream and under great tree cover. Hiking and exploration are amazing within the Gifford Pinchot National Forest area, so you're within a prime natural space here.
