Malia's Notes: on
OK State Parks


Gobbler Ridge is the only campground in the park that accepts reservations.This loop has a total of 42 sites, with 7 having 50 amp service, and all with water at the sites. The sites have no sewer hookups, but there is a dump station within the loop, along with showers and restrooms. Most sites are shaded, some with gravel, some with concrete pads. There are no views of the lake from here. Although there are other lakeside and view sites in Deer Run and Cypress Row campgrounds, those only offer 30 amp service, and it was so hot I really needed all 50 amps to stay cool. The other important factor for me in choosing this loop is that the other campgrounds are located below a bluff, and I was advised that cell phones and air cards didn't work down there.
This is one of the most group-friendly parks I've ever seen. While I was here, a very nice Good Sam group, Route 66, was here. Members told me this was one of their favorite parks to gather in.
This is site #21, a 50 amp pull-through, located near the restrooms and across the road from the playground. There's a $5.00 non-refundable fee for making a reservation if you don't want to take a chance on first-come, first-camp.
Deer Run Campground is the only one with some full hookup sites - All have 30 amp service and sites are a little closer together than the ones in Gobbler Ridge. But it's located across the road from the Marina and some have views of the lake.
Cypress Row Campground has the best lake views for the 25 sites here. The tradeoff is no sewer at the sites and only 30 amp service. You go by this campground to get to Cabin on the Lake, a state-of-the art handicapped access lakefront cabin.
Here's a view of one of the sites in Cypress Row, seen from the pontoon boat ride.

Unusual for state parks, there's even a small laundromat located near the tents only Lakeview campground. There's only 2 washers & dryers, but you can't beat the prices - 50 cents to wash and $1.00 to dry. In the same building is a well stocked arcade game room (including pool table), along with bathroom and shower facilities. There's even a small fitness center that you can arrange to use at the Marina. See the park map for more info.

Group Camping: An excellent group camping program - reserved sites at Gobbler Ridge, with great group amenities available: enclosed pavilion, ball field, playground, pool, miniature golf, and campfires under the stars. They also offer a variety of other amenities such as catering, entertainment, tours, etc. I met Diane Rutland, the Sales Manager of Greenleaf and Tenkiller State Parks. She is so sweet, friendly and dedicated, you can be sure she'll go the extra mile to make sure your gathering is tons of fun! She can be reached at 918-487-5622 or by email: drutland@oklahomastateparks.com.
