    Loved our extended family getaway!
    Our visit was with extended family, a mini family reunion with mostly adults and one toddler. I’m glad we rented the ADA cabin for my parents, one of which has limited mobility. We also rented another one bedroom cabin, a two bedroom cabin and a duplex. Our two bedroom cabin had very irregular steps that were vintage and beautiful, but could be treacherous for some. We had a fantastic time! We were fortunate to get to eat at the newly opened Foggy Bottom Kitchen - yummo!!

    Beautiful State Park With Woods and Hiking
    Travelled here from Dallas (just a 3 hour drive) and had a wonderful time. We camped at the RV part of the park and spent 2 days wandering about the beautiful woods. Note - the trails, while fairly well marked, make it easy to get on the wrong trail so be sure and take a decent trail map (we forgot ours). Some of the trails are a bit rocky but still navigable for the majority of people. Definitely a return trip in the offing!

    Great State park even in the winter
    We visited three times while we stayed in McAlester to get in our daily walk. The trail map was a bit hard to figure out so we just walked around the cabins (you can rent them in window) and down by the lake and river and the lower campgrounds. A bit of a trash issue so we picked up a lot of it during our walk (the ones we could reach by the side of the road). Some of the restrooms are open during the winter while others are winterized. Locals were there fishing a few campers. You can also bring your horse and camp with them as they have stalls for the horses.

Specifically Cabin 122 as we’re into the 2nd night of our weekend stay in this cabin. I wouldn’t recommend it for older folks or those with small children as the entrance has steps with no hand rail and only a 1 foot high rock wall along the steps and the porch area, beyond which you would have a bone breaking fall to the ground. Inside the air was musty and we found mildew and mold on/inside the cabinet under the bathroom sink. The shower is a little grimy with an old ineffective shower head. The mattress is either old or cheap and uncomfortable. Cabin has Direct TV but the TV monitor’s picture was poor. Aside from all those issues the cabin is nice and the area is beautiful.

First of all- Amazing views and awesome hikes!

But pretty much everything else was awful.

We arrived at a campsite (Deep Ford 001) and found it covered in trash. The park ranger said they would warn the people who were there first but seemed a little dismissive. I had poor customer service at the park office when asking about when the main bathrooms were locked. The bathrooms were supposed to be open till 11PM. They were locked at 9PM at least twice.

We booked with this park because they said Kayaks would be available. They told us when we arrived that the Kayaks wouldn't be available till a day after we left.

Groups of fishermen woke us up and invaded our campsite almost every night and every morning. We woke up the first morning to two men fishing 5 feet from the front of our tent. Several other groups of fishermen walked through our campsite and disrupted our time together. While some of them were nice, NONE of them were invited. When we reported these fishermen, we were told they had been warned before. That leads me to believe that the park ranger, who drove by several times, should have known to dealt with the problem!

The cave and the trails are great for day use but DO NOT waste your money on staying in this poorly managed, filthy, and disappointing park.

This was our first time staying in a two bedroom cabin. We've stayed in the one bedroom, "honeymoon" cabin, in the past and really liked it.

The kitchen was adequate but hardly any countertop space for chopping/prepping (Make sure you bring all your own dishes and utensils). The fridge was a regular sized fridge with freezer, so lots of room to store your cold items.

The living room was spacious and had plenty of seating and a dining table for 6 people. The couch left a lot to be desired and was very sunk down and uncomfortable to sit on; however, in our friend’s cabin they had a couch that was great, so it may just depend on the cabin.

The bathroom didn't have a lot of elbow room and I kept hitting the towel rack hanging on the wall. Lots of fresh towels were provided though. The ceiling in the bathroom was in desperate need of repairs. The bathroom fan vent was completely missing and you could see into the ceiling which was covered in lots of nasty, grey muck. The return grill in the ceiling was rusted and black as well.

The bedrooms were identical in layout, each containing a built in dresser/mirror combo with a nifty rack to hang your clothes on behind it. The bedspread looked newer and more modern. The bed itself wasn't comfortable to sleep in though. You rolled to the center and it was very lumpy.

We did notice that throughout the cabin several of the lamps were missing the on/off switch, so you had to plug and unplug the lights to turn them off and on.

It was raining during our stay so we didn't get much time to go hiking. We did take one short trail and it was well marked, yet we didn't know how long it was or where it went. I would like to see better maps at the office on the trails. The giftshop has been expanded and was well stocked.

Overall we still had a good time, but I’m hoping they’ll look closer at the small things and try to improve those as well. You can see the development and updating of the park and it's very exciting. The new restaurant should be opening soon and the new lodge as well. Hopefully they will then take a closer look at the cabins.

Our trip was cut short because the cabin we were in had bees flying in its. There were no more cabin available so we had to go home. We were still charged by the state for the day and a half we were there but they 3rd day was a non refundable day. Will be back nut will bring camping gear since they will not work with us.

The park itself is nice for hiking and being outdoors but the bathrooms at Deep Ford campground are by far the worse I have ever seen at a state park. They have 2 bathroom stalls and one shower in the mens and womens bathrooms, the mens bathroom basically stayed flooded from backed up toilets and when you could use the toilet you had someone always open the door while you were in there because there is no way to lock the door. The shower does not have any place at all to set anything so you have to set your stuff on floor. This camp was completely packed full so I know they have money coming in but appear to not want to spend any to maintain this area.

Basically this is a beautiful area ruined by a poorly maintained state park.

Beautiful park with picnic areas, open spaces, tiny lake with paddle boats and canoes, store with camping/picnic supplies, little nature center museum with great information. All of the staff was very nice and helpful. Good hiking-the cave area was crowded, but that is to be expected. So glad we made the stop for a day trip.

We had a wonderful 3 night stay in the cabin! The cabin was very nice for a state park, and we found it comfortable and relaxing. The cave trail is a great hike, and we also enjoyed the paddle boats. Didn’t get to ride the horses this time, but we will when we come back.

The area is beautiful! However, the pad lengths on the RV reservations are not accurate. Site was listed as 50ft and actually only measured 24ft. My 30ft camper would not fit and we were left boondocking in town. Charged for cancelling the reservation. After coming in from out of state I was very disappointed and dont think I will return.

Many large campsites that are covered and surrounded by tall trees in Old Circle campground. Some are full hookup and pull-throughs. (Just want to note that a few campsites are small and have steep areas near those sites. And some sites would be a tight fit for larger camping units.) Lots of things to see and do around the area.

Just a note about cell phone service... We have Consumer Cellular. We had phone and text service but NO data service until we went into Wilburton. Our daughter had AT&T and had full service in most areas.

It is a small nice park. Looks like a good place for fishing. We got the last travel trailer spot in the equestrian site. Staff was friendly. The large trash dumpster was never emptied. Bathroom and shower are new and basic. They have a new restaurant called Foggy Bottom Kitchen. Long wait time. Note. They fry their okra tell it is black. If you want okra be sure to say not to burn it. That is the way the manager likes it.
