Nice level sights. They had many sights right on Tenkiller lake. They had a playground and nice swim area for kids. We really enjoyed our stay. - okiecamper

No longer accept Passport America, but gave us last year's rate. Pros: Very basic park, but convenient to Tahlequah, especially Cherokee Heritage Center. All pull through sites. Clean, helpful staff at gas station, grass nicely mowed and some shade, but still need some trimming.
Cons: No WiFi, no cable, no picnic tables - absolutely basic. - BandD

We stayed one night under Passport America. We were the only ones there. 50a power, water, and sewer all OK. Verizon cell and hotspot worked fine. No trees to block rooftop dish. Daytime noise from small industry behind campground, but it stops in late afternoon. Very basic park but right location and price for us to visit Tahlequah. - big greg

All pull through sites but young trees need to be trimmed. Water and 50amp power was good. Gravel road and sites with grass in-between sites which are close together. Very roomy if only a few RVs in the park which is the norm. Verizon cell phone and hotspot worked well. Rooftop TV dish did too, the trees are not too tall. The nearby bar T-Bone was closed and loud industry across the street was quiet. Passport America $10 rate was for just one night. Very convenient to Tahlequah. - big greg

When we arrived, we could not find anyone to help us. All areas were closed except one, which had poor camping pads, water connections 20 feet away, uneven, and very close together. We decided to leave the same day. In my judgment, this CG is a disaster. - Jim Butler

This is a typical state operated park, clean and well maintained with plenty of room at each site. The campground is surrounded on three sides with water and the views are great. Fire rings, grills, and picnic tables at most sites. Friendly and helpful staff. - Dave Cole

The park was GREAT, the only disappointment was that they advertise full hookups and if you don't read the fine print, you will THINK that means sewer and it does not. This was a real bummer for us, but a nice neighbor let us use his potty caddy and it all worked out. We have decided to invest in one of these little things (I may be calling it by the wrong name, but you get the picture). Anyway, other than that, the park was great and the the spaces were not cramped. It is very nice! Our spot was water view and we could get both sunrise and sunset shots! If it had septic hook ups, I would have given it a 10. - WeB3HappyCampers

Have stayed in Seminole part of the park many times. Hosts are always helpful and friendly. Great views and plenty of deer visiting. Choctaw is due to finally reopen after getting the same treatment that Seminole did several years ago with updating. Hopefully Cherokee is next. About half of Seminole is full hookup with 30 or 50 amp service. - Jerry F

Great scenery, cement pads but some very close together. - mjtesky

We have camped at both Seminole and Cherokee areas. Seminole is by far my favorite with cement pads and wide, shaded spots facing the lake. Both Full hook-up and water/electric only are available. Beautiful area especially in the fall. Camp host is very helpful and friendly. - User3575

This park is not to be confused with Western Hills Guest Ranch/Sequoyah Bay State Park that is also near Wagoner and on Lake Fort Gibson. We initially intended to stay here for two nights but the lake was 16 feet above normal and the lakeside sites were under water. There has been a lot of rain in this area recently; hopefully they will recover OK when the water recedes. The park has plenty of big beautiful trees and a lot of things to do and see. A very peaceful place to stay. Has very good TV reception via antenna. The restroom/showers were clean. I will definitely return in the future. - DavyD

Campground on a peninsula overlooking Lake Tenkiller. Easy access to water. Sites are basic with water and electric. Some sites share water spigots. Fully tree lined asphalt access road and sites. Sites level with hookups correctly laid out for back-in parking. Strayhorn Marina close by as well as swimming beach, boat ramp for campers use, and no real strict parking so can have your boat or jet ski up near the RV. Restrooms with no a/c, but clean. Campground gate closes nightly 10:00 PM for security. Online reservation is the easiest way to secure a site. Reserved and first come sites available. No dog park. - drw-cpa

We stayed here in the off season, but it was still relatively crowded. They have a nice split of reservable and non-reservable sites, but in the summer I don't know if I would take the chance of driving in without a reservation. The non-reservable sites probably have better lake views (especially sunrise/sunset views, but some of them share water so be aware of that. The park was well mowed and as clean as can be expected for a lake campground (in our experience, many lake campers and boaters in this area are not great at cleaning up after themselves). We stayed at site 6 which was perfectly level and had a little shade but not much privacy. Tenkiller Lake is less muddy and red than a lot of Oklahoma lakes and there is quite a bit to do in the area. As always in Oklahoma, watch out for ticks! We will stay again, for sure. - wulfleton

We stayed in site 102. It was very difficult to get into; we had to back down long driveway before angling off into that site. If they would trim the trees, it would be very easy to pull through. The site was asphalt and not level, and there was a sharp drop off on the side with the picnic spot.
The site was supposed to be water and electric, but there was no water. By the time we got there, our family was there to eat dinner with us, and we didn't have time to really search for the water faucet. So we used the water from the next site and filled our holding tank. By the time our family left and we searched for the non-existing water faucet, it was after hours. Luckily, we just booked one night.
The worst thing is that there were ticks everywhere. We got them just walking from the car to the trailer, and more the next morning unhooking. I don't think we even left the pavement that morning.
I would not recommend this campground. - texaswestie

Stayed here for our trip of the year. Was very quiet with less than half the sites used, even on the weekend. Great views of the lake and nice discount per nite stayed. Close to Wagoner and Choteau is just 25 miles north of Wagoner. - Jerry F

The campsite is on Fort Gibson Lake. Some of the sights have been redone this year and are level. Other sites are old and very unlevel. This place is OK, but they should have redone all the sites. - okiecamper

Cypress Row CR19 - great downhill view of the lake from our front window. Our site was a bit damp from the previous night's rain, but without puddles. We parked on the leaf-covered site, on what might have been a bit of gravel - far from the next sites. Our well-pruned tree-lined site was almost level side to side, but the front of the trailer needed to be lifted - not a concern for us. Other sites appeared more level.
A few people were fishing off the dock, while we took a nice walk around the campground's 3 loops. The camp was quiet, nestled in the high-canopy trees.
As we were setting up camp, the hostess stopped to welcome us. She wouldn't let us stop to pay her, as she promised to stop by later. Having only one night to spend here, we left early, leaving payment at the host's camper door.
My Verizon did not work here - OK by me.
We would return. - AluminumCloud

Nice park with lots of wild life and trees. Nice level pad with lots of trees. Easy walk to lake. Something for everyone with hiking, Tent camping, boating, and wild life watching. The camp hosts in the RV section were wonderful. Nice family park with children's playground. Cons no WiFi or ATT cell reception and bath house is funky like most state parks. They do have more primitive sites without sewer but there is a community dump station. Nice park friendly people. Would recommend. - Flying Unicorn

Good value. $20 for water 30 amps and a pool. Grounds well maintained. Lots of spots on a Saturday. Pool open noon to 7 PM with lifeguards. Open for private parties after 7:30. Kids fishing pond a bit yucky and pool could use updating, but is functional. Snack area with reasonable prices. - cb1000rider

Had reserved for Chicken Creek but got wrong directions off internet, so ended up at Tenkiller. At Tenkiller wanted to stay in water/electric only for one night. Ended up at Fox Squirrel Camp when couldn't find working electric and nearby water in that camp and got stung by wasp when lifting electric hookup box cover!! Fox Squirrel site was excellent with a grill and table and nearby clean restroom! - Ann_Dave

Stayed 2 nights in Shady Grove campsite within the State Park towards the back of the Park property and up a hill. Polite and helpful registration staff. Narrow asphalt drive into the campground with level concrete pads at each site requiring nothing unusual for set up. Campsite only had 30 amp service, while we needed 50 amp, and was no where to be found. Utilities worked as expected. Very shady campground. A fairly long drive back to the entrance and other services. Was just an OK experience. - drw-cpa

We stayed in the newer edition at the Flying Squirrel campground. Shade was sparse and water hydrants were even sparser and bathrooms in that sector were nonexistent. Our section was right next to the the highway. There was a store and a nightclub across the highway from the park. It was sort of like camping near the "strip" in your home town without any noticeable gunfire. This is not a good place just to go camping. - Kittum

This park is located on the beautiful Fort Gibson Lake. The lake and Fort Gibson Dam are wonderful sites to see. The campground is very large, and has a swimming area marked off in the lake and several play things for young kids. There are two different sides that are separated by the marina, where you can park or rent a boat or jet ski. One side has campsites for camper traitors and/or tents with several bath houses, play yards, picnic areas and even a tennis court. The other is more peaceful and is for fifth wheels or campers, and also has a bath house and small play ground. The staff was friendly and we had a wonderful time. The grounds are somewhat un-kept, its not trashy but could be mowed more often. It's a great place to spend time on the lake, or have a family summer reunions under the pavilions. Would recommend this to anyone staying around Muskogee. - 3paynes
