The nature center is by far the best part of this state park. The staff are enthusiastic and very helpful. There were lots of exhibits and birds at all the feeders. We were impressed!

The lake is red and mucky because of the red dirt in the area. The park is run down and not very clean. But the sunsets are beautiful.

I was devastated when they removed the horse back riding! That was so cool to ride there and that is what everyone looks for when they come to Oklahoma, a horse ride. So Sad

This one has electric/water hookups and the sites are big rig friendly and partly shaded. DO NOT stay near the waterfront on the Alameda Road side of the lake. I have NEVER seen such trash. The highway... More
