Quiet campground!
Jul 2018 • Friends
Birch Cove was a quiet campground with clean bathroom facilities. We stayed in our travel trailer and our friends had a tent. We were at site 21, there was no view of the water. We were ok without a water view as many sites with a water view seemed much more crowded than ours. Site 21 had woods in the back and one side, which means we were not sandwiched other campers - private feel. We did not use the mounted stand up charcoal grill at the site but it was in great shape with a Shepard hook attached for hanging your lantern. The picnic table was made of concrete which made for a sore behind after a few rounds of cards but otherwise, it was nice to have a sturdy table for the 4 of us. The counter height bar was a great addition as our friend used it for his camp stove which gave us more room on the picnic table and he didn't have to bend over when he was cooking. Loved the counter height bar! The fire pit was huge and wasn't rusted out like we find at other camp grounds. We used three different bathroom facilities and all were clean. Always a big plus! Keep in mind that some of the water spigots at some sites seemed a bit further away while other sites seemed as if they were not intended to have water and people just shared water with their neighbor. We used just 1 25 foot hose to reach the water, however, we did see a one camper with 3 hoses white hoses attached we can only assume it was 3 25 foot hoses. If you are unsure, just call the camp hosts were friendly and I am sure could help you out on this. The beach area was clean but full sun. We did spend about 2 hours here on our visits and there were maybe a dozen other people on the beach. I believe no alcohol is allowed at the beach. Besides the town of Barnsdall which does not offer much, there were 3 decent size towns within 30 minutes drive. Our favorite was Skiatook because of Mac's BBQ, Mac's BBQ what a find! The other towns Pawhuska (town of the Pioneer Woman) and a bit further was Bartlesville. We recommend the Birch Cove campground and we would return if it wasn't 6 hours from our home. The drive for us is the only reason we would not return.

Before you head toward the given address and location, I suggest you check for correct location. Birch Lake is at Barnsdall and Birch Cove is at Birch Lake --- Neither is at Skiatook or Skiatook Lake Road.

Hidden Small Lake
Jun 2015 • Family
With all the high water in the state from the constant rain this year, most campgrounds are closed in OK. We found Birch Cove after much searching. It is about 1 hour north of Tulsa. What a hidden little gem. My family camped two nights at this great little lake. There is a small swimming beach and fishing area. Very nice bathrooms with showers available. Great fishing. We loved that each camp site had a concrete pad and most of them were very long. We had to share a water spigot between us, but had electric and was within walking distance to the water. It was so nice having it so close to Tulsa. Grandchildren and adults enjoyed the time. Need a few things from the store and Barnsdall was just a few miles away. Plenty of wood for fires and lots of wild life. Water was very high but when it goes down this will be a great lake to camp at.
