We had reservations here (unfortunately) twice on our recent trip to and from Colorado. FIRST STAY - Unique park that offers campers a view of petrified wood and and idea of what a "Jurassic Park" was like. The limited number of RV sites had recently been re-graveled and there are nice shaded tent sites along a creek bed that has dried up because of the drought. The town of Ft. Supply is a good 20+ mile distance, so come prepared. Reviews mentioned the fly problem here and it persisted for us as well. This could be controlled by emptying the uncovered, overflowing trash bins more often and spraying around them. In addition, the sticker burrs in our dog's paws was a nightmare for walking her. We did not get to witness the "star show" due to the bright moon. We also had no cell service, but cell towers were visible from the park. SECOND STAY - It was worse than the first. The flies were absolutely annoying and seemed to have multiplied. We did not even venture outside this stay due to the invasion of the flies you could see swarming from the window. I swatted almost 50 flies in our RV after waking. Please go stay elsewhere so you are able to enjoy the outdoors. We will never plan another stay here.

Get ready for invasion of the flies!!!!! This campground smells and the flies are awful because who knows when the dumpsters have been emptied that sit right in the middle of the camp sites. The charcoal grills are covered because of a burn ban which is understandable. Unless you like to hike in over 100 degree weather there is nothing else to do here. If you can hold out for the night skies it’s amazing! Park WiFi is okay at times but there is no service here! Okay for one night but suffering through more than that isn’t advisable.

We chose this park coming back into Oklahoma from Colorado due to the night sky. It is amazing to view with the darkness all around. Park well maintained with picked up sites. Volunteer there very helpful and friendly. we reserved online at travelok.com. two months in advance. There is very little else in this area.

This region of Oklahoma is geologically different than most of the rest. It’s close to the volcano field of New Mexico. Their is a reservoir. There is a nice mix of short and long hikes. The wildlife is abundant. I love the rock formations, the petrified wood, and the plants.

The dark sky is amazing!!!!! . It would be nice if the campers followed protocol and turned outside lights off when they are inside. Very peaceful.! All fires are prohibited grills included! Make sure you bring everything you need and a full tank of gas! The camp ground is very basic
