Blue River is a great spot to go and fish, swim, or just look out at the water. They have rope swings and other fun things to do. I would also recommend stopping by Scotty’s One Stop on the way back. They have the best burgers around.

Although I haven't fished there yet, we DID drive down thru the campground area which is RIGHT next to the river. Beautiful scenery! Beautiful river!!! So peaceful. Would be great for just a day or a week!

We enjoy Blue River. The wster is very cold and clear. Many people fish for trout there. It is one of a very few clear streams in Oklahoma. It also has good camp slights.

A long walk on a beautiful river. Great fishing and picnic areas. The trout are perfect size for campfire grilling. Be sure to bring sides for the freshest meal you ever ate.

Blue River State Park - Tishomingo, OK
Jan 2019 • Solo
I live in OKC, OK and visit the Blue River just north of downtown Tishomingo about 7 miles. This is a great area for RV or primitive camping. The location is convenient if you want to run to town for groceries or just outside of the park is Scottie’s. Scottie’s has some basic groceries and a good stock of fishing gear. They also sell campfire wood since you cannot cut down trees in the park for burning.
1/11/19 I went down for a day trip and limited out by 9am. Missed about a 7-8 lbs rainbow that really got my blood pumping. I was using a ultra light action rod (4lbs test) and a Panther Martin spinner bait (brown fly with gold spoon) and they TORE IT UP!!
I fished in Area 1 at the 2nd or 3rd Parking Only spit just before one of the water falls. Fished off bank and had no issues. Heading back soon!!!

P.S there are motels in Tishomingo too!!!

FISH ON and FISH FOR FUN!!!

Clear, beautiful blue green water! Calm kayak trip. Great for the whole family. Exercise that doesn't feel like work, but church. There's a spiritual connection with nature to be had on this river. We highly recommend the trip. We will certainly return.

To Many People
Dec 2016 • Friends
I have traveled 4 hours one way on 2 different occasions only to find there were no spots available anywhere. I had to drive home and this makes for a bad experience. 3 years ago there were not as many people there only retired campers that loved to fish they followed the rules and you could go to sleep early to fish in the morning. 2 years ago I went expecting the same experience but the campgrounds were taken over by inbred rednecks drinking all night with their radios wide open and generators running all night so their partying would not wake up the 4 dozen kids in the tent. This is a beautiful place but the people ruin the experience now.

Best Swimming Hole AROUND!!
Jul 2017
This swimming hole is SO much fun. The Blue River Campground is secluded so there's not as many people as Chickasaw National Park. The current is fast moving and the water is clean. There's even a rope swing too!! AND...you can drive across the river to the other side using this age old crossing.

Type in this address for the campsite and park in Area 1.... D1854 Rd, Tishomingo, OK 73460

Beautiful!
Feb 2017 • Friends
This is a beautiful area to come to camp and fish. With an Oklahoma fishing license camping is free. There are no electric or water hookups, no showers, but there are pit toilets. Very nice clean camping area with large sites. Our sites were a short walk from the river, and a short drive from one of the more popular fishing spots. Even is you don't like fishing I would still recommend this place. Plenty of area to hike or your bike through the camping areas. It is also only a short drive to the town of Tishomingo. There are several small waterfalls along the river that are just beautiful. The water is very clear. We camped here in February and I was surprised at the number of both tent and rv campers at this time of year. I will definitely be coming back here again.
