Our family enjoys camping and water recreation at Tall Chief Cove all summer long! Gorgeous place, family friendly, and the camp staff is always willing to help with anything you need! I cannot say enough about the joy and happiness that Skiatook Lake brings my family each and every summer!

Here is something you will NOT see in their website, They lock the gates at 10pm and if you are not in their by then you can park your vehicle and walk over a half mile to get to your camper. Felt like I was in prison Also the water connection was @ 200' away from site ~ will never... More

We have enjoyed our stay here. The sites at least for 50 amp are very spacious. We overlook the lake which is beautiful. There are 2 things that could be changed. One is that you share water with your neighbor. Since the site was so large we had to go buy another hose in order to hook up. The other... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and enjoyed our stay. The water to our site was a long way from our RV so we had to make it on what we had in our tank.

I agree the people at the campground were very rude. I just went to pick up a friend who decided not to stay. I had to give a 5 minute explanation and eventually the older man told me to hurry up and I better be right back. Even as we left they stopped us to say I shouldnt have parked... More

This is a good beach for families, but the weekends can get crowded. There are lots of shade trees close to the beach which helps with the heat.

We have stayed at this campground many times over the past 5 years and the staff there has been very courteous. The previous reviewer must have instigated such a situation as described. Obviously all the signs posted were not observed or you would not have attempted to use a campground without paying required fees like everyone else. Read the signs,... More

Worst experience ever. We called to make a reservation and the man on the phone told us we didn't need to make one. So we pulled up to the gate, ready to pay. We sat there for a good 15 minutes while the old lady was talking on the phone. She looked at us and waved us on. Meanwhile we... More
