Beautiful park on Fort Gibson Lake. We were scheduled to stay in the Choctaw full hookup area, but had concerns with the sites. You had to hit small concrete pads and some sites would not allow the use of slides since trees were close. Water faucets were on the wrong side. Gravel drive was rough and washed out in some areas. We moved to the Cherokee area which had better sites closer to the water. This area has some nice sites with fewer trees. All of the picnic tables do not have covers. Gravel roads again are rough. Our kids enjoyed swimming in the lake and pool. Nice pool with deep and shallow ends. The pool did not have a diving board, so the kids thought it was boring. Area has a small kiddie pool. Fishing was good. Caught several white bass from the shoreline as well as catfish at night. Whites seem to school near the boat ramp at Cherokee and in the adjacent cove in the mornings. Boat ramps in the Cherokee camping area were not in good shape: very rough. While we were here one person had trouble getting boat out of water due to running off ramp. Overall this is a nice park with several options for families. However it needs some maintenance work especially if you venture off the main paved roadways. A person who stayed with us rented a cabin and was very pleased with the level of service and space. We would stay here again. Lots of wildlife. Deer are everywhere. We camped at Sequoyah State Park & Lodge (formerly Western Hills Guest Ranch) in a Travel Trailer.
