Very nice campground on the lake. Sites would be very close together for a state park if full. Nature Center and walking trail at campground. Fire rings at several sites are small rocks in a circle so not sure if "legal" or not. Right on highway so a bit of noise. All sites are back in. A few smaller sites are right on the lake. No attendant or camp host at this time of year so picked site and paid the iron box. Garmin GPS and Apple maps had different directions. iPhone map app was closer to I44 than Garmin RV route. We camped at Bernice Area at Grand Lake State Park in a Motorhome.
These are all back in sites, if lots of other campers are there it may be difficult to back in a bigger rig. The site was very level with lots of nice shade trees. There were some bugs by water's edge but, not many in our campsite. The park was quiet and clean. We would stay here again. We camped at Bernice Area at Grand Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

Update to this park. They have added very nice 50 amp towers. The towers are similar to marina towers. Still no sewer hookups but still great views and quiet. We camped at Bernice Area at Grand Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

This park has 33 level concrete RV campsites with 30 amp, water hookups, picnic table, grill and fire ring. They have a dump station, 2 comfort stations with showers, 2 playgrounds, a swimming beach, nature center, wildlife feeding area and 2 wildlife watch towers and covered picnic shelter. There is also has a one mile paved walking path. This is an older park and it does have a worn look to it. Most of the RV sites sit side by side with few small trees, except for 7 RV sites. The sites are located right along the water’s edge. Those 7 sites are spread out and under a few large trees. The water pressure at our site was not very good. The 30amp electrical plug receptacle appeared charred but worked fine. We have good Verizon signal and 16 TV channels. The nearest major city is Tulsa. Grove is the nearest town of a decent size and is about fifteen miles away. Grove has Wal-Mart, Walgreens and a few other major stores. We camped at Bernice Area at Grand Lake State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
We really enjoy this park. Sites are level with a lot of space between them. We were here on a week day & only 4 others were here. Our site was about 200 feet from the water with good shade. Understanding that this camp ground has its limitations (30 amp & no sewer) it is a hidden gem. Our rate has a disabled rate. Senior rate is $18, others $20. We will go back. There was no host when we stayed, first come first served with honesty box at entrance. We camped at Bernice Area at Grand Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

We drove through the RV camping sites and would consider this park for a stay as it is nice, waterfront, has a swimming beach and is close to activities in Monkey Island. We camped at Bernice Area at Grand Lake State Park in a Motorhome.
Camped here in June 2009. It was our first time in an Oklahoma state park, so nothing to compare it to. First the good. Sites were paved and level and most had tables and fire rings but some were short if you have a long trailer. All sites are within 100 yards of the lake. There isn't a designated swimming area so you can swim anywhere. The lake has a long swallow shoreline which makes swimming with kids easy. The park also has a new nature center. The not so good. There seems to be few rules at this particular park. Parking is a free-for-all with cars all over the roads and the camping spots. The park is popular with day trippers. If you have a lake side spot the day trippers will drive between the lake and your campsite and park/play. The restrooms where attended to but I would not consider them "clean" compared to Missouri/Arkansas state parks. I probably would not return to this particular park. We camped at Bernice Area at Grand Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.
This park is not located in Grove, Ok. It is located outside of Bernice, Ok. The campground is a great place to spend some time: fishing, swimming across the road in Grand Lake. The only drawback is the State Park does not have sewer, a dump is available. The park was clean and the hosts were great. Nice place. We camped at Bernice Area at Grand Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

Would rate as a 10 if there was sewer. There is a dump though. We stayed here 4 days and enjoyed the camp. It is located on Grand Lake and is a beautiful spot. The camp hosts were helpful and friendly. Will stay here again. We camped at Bernice Area at Grand Lake State Park in a Motorhome.
