Clayton lake state park is a true diamond in the rough. Built in 1935 it still retains its charm of the past. I cannot stress this enough this place is remote and quite, no water sports are allowed on the lake only swimming and boating. If you book through the week there will be days you will have the park to yourself most if not all of the day.
After 85 years the park is starting to show some wear, but is in the first stages of getting an update. Still state owned the park is being managed by a local community group and has a new on site manager dedicated to making your stay and enjoyable one. I really enjoyed my time here and plan to go back to see how the improvements are advancing.

We rented the 'big cabin'. It has a beautiful view of the lake, well equipped and quiet. 2 queen beds, 2 twin beds, full bathroom and stocked kitchen. Outdoor charcoal grill and fire pit ring just off the back porch. The most loved place for us, was the covered back porch. We enjoyed watching the rain, people canoeing and close enough to the fishing dock to send the kids to fish.
We checked out the 3 smaller cabins thru the window, and here's a couple notes. I noticed they had 1 full/queen bed, separate room from 2 twins. Mini fridge and microwave. Bathrooms with cold water showers are right across the street, near swing set. Outdoor grill and fire pit ring nearby. Very quiet and cute geese to watch. There was also a small boat ramp near these cabins to launch a canoe or kayak.

I have stayed 2 times at Clayton Lake State Park once in the Fall tent camping and once in the Spring in their cabins. My wife and I really enjoyed how quiet and clean it was. The Lake is small, only about 90 acres but the fishing on our trips has been very good.

Attended a family get together here and was surprised by the facilities. One of the cabins was rented by a member of our group and the rental included the pavilion. Rate was only $100 per night. Cabin was large and included kitchen, dinning area, sofa, bedrooms, and bath. Cabin had a/c that worked great. Large deck overlooking the lake. Pavilion had three or four picnic tables and a pit for cooking. Visited on a weekend and maybe saw five other families the whole day. Verizon phone service was not available. Have to drive to Clayton for a signal. Restrooms were clean and open to the public.

Good campground areas with clean shower/bathrooms. Nice RV parking. Newer cabins also. Easily accessible to fish from land or on small boat/kayak. Clayton (city) close enough to service for food/gas/etc.

We stopped by Clayton Lake State Park on our ride through the area, and it was a very nice and clean looking park. Despite it being fall break, it was not crowded at all. Looking forward to camping here soon!

There are 30 or more camping sites. All have a concrete picnic table and small grill. Some have electric. There are at least 2 restrooms available on each side of the park. Showers are all cold water. There are several large pavilions for groups. There are playgrounds. There are at least 3 different swimming areas. I camped out alone, in a tent. I felt very safe. I will definitely be visiting again with family and children. It is a very laid back recreation area. You pick your spot, move in and the ranger comes around in the evening to collect your fee. He does not have change and have your ID handy. I was serenaded by many different kinds of frogs as I was going to sleep. Wonderful experience!

Stopped by for a quick walk around the park. So beautiful. Unspoiled. Peaceful. Serene. Uncrowded.

Even though the park is adjacent to a highway, there is so little traffic that there is no issue of road noise.

A nice gem.

We had heard so many good things about Oklahoma State Parks, being from Missouri we thought we'd check one out. This one ruined it for us. The park host was rude, the campsites were dirty, the showers and bathrooms were locked half the time and when we went to ask the park host to unlock them he said he didn't feel like it, that they would be unlocked in the morning. There were also used syringes laying outside the bathrooms in the primitive camp area. I ended up leaving a day early and heading back because we just couldn't stand it anymore. Don't get me wrong the setting is beautiful, but the whole park could use a good cleaning AND a new park host. There were also several stray dog roaming the park.

It stormed a few nights we were there and the camp ground host came around each morning afterwards and asked why we were still here...really? We will probably not waste our time with this campground anymore.
