Another COE campground: very nice. Very friendly gate attendants. Some of the sites are still grass and uneven. We were in site #48 and 49. Very shaded and large with flat large back in sites. These sites had covered concrete tables, fire ring and standup grill both along with a side table. These sites were waterfront just across the road with the ability to pull your boat up to the shore. Not all sites had that. Very quiet even though it was full, had lots of space between sites, in these specific sites. The sites in the circle we stayed in, did not have a through street, but a turn around. Had to unhook the boat, which we pull behind our 5th wheel to make the turn around. But totally doable. - Fonda

Very nice campsite. Nice newer shower and restrooms throughout campsites. Lots of trees and grass. Grounds are well maintained. Water and electric hookups no sewer but there is a dump station outside the campgrounds. Would definitely recommend to stay here. - Dillondw

Another good COE park. Very friendly gate attendants. The rate reflects the access pass discount. They have made some improvements with new restrooms and showers. Some of the sites are still grass and uneven. We were in site #37, which was large, level and had plenty of room. We enjoyed our stay. We will return, if we are back in the area. - TexasRVer

A well maintained Corps of Engineer Park overlooking Kaw Lake. Sites are large, paved and have privacy. Most sites are sloped front to back, some seriously. Many sites are on the Arkansas River/Kaw Lake. Restroom and showers are clean and reasonably maintained. No hand soap in the men’s restroom. Cell signal (Verizon) was weak. Not all sites receive cell signal. We received DTV signal on our site (61) but the shady sites make DTV reception a challenge. The staff went out of their way to be helpful. The only negative is the trash bins are not kept closed. - johnrobertpowers

You have to travel pretty far back along Kaw Lake to find these COE campgrounds, but they are well worth the trip. Very large sites. Most are not level, but some are. Good Verizon service. Tables, grill, fire pit. This park was built in the 60's so the roads can be a little narrow but easy to manage. The restrooms were old but clean. Only one restrooms with flush toilets per loop, the rest are pit toilets. Water is available but not at the sites. 30amp electric was reliable. Not busy in April, but I can imagine in the summer with the beautiful lake it can get busy. The gate closes at 10pm, but arrangements can be made with the hosts to have it opened. We paid 1/2 price for old age so $9 was well worth it. We would definitely come back and stay longer. - rhianna

The prior two reviewers did a good job of describing the strange set up in this little campground so I'm not going to go into it. But what I do have to comment on is the appalling filthiness of the grounds. There was trash everywhere...in every fire pit, on the lawns, on the road, even in the bushes despite the fact that there are three dumpsters readily available on the grounds. There were hundreds upon hundreds of cigarette butts all over the ground. I can't comment on the restroom because after seeing the state of the park itself I was afraid to even go in them! Who does this? Was there a slob convention here this last weekend? Or does Ponca City just not care that what would be an otherwise nice little camp at a great price is ruined by the trash heaps everywhere? What kind of disrespectful low-lifes use this camp? We were the only ones there on this Monday night and I was glad because judging from the way the people around here treat the place I don't think I would want to be around them. Is this typical behavior of Oklahomans? Our first night in the state we stayed at a lovely state park that was perfectly clean and now this. I just don't even know what to think. If you are looking for a cheap place to spend the night when you are passing through, this might be worth checking out and seeing if this is the typical state of affairs, but I would never stay here again unless they cleaned up their park! - Pdxjoanne

OK for a night or two. Nothing fancy but the price is right. The spots are kind pf like a parking lot -- the pull throughs are like if you just pulled over on the side of the road. Others are like a parking lot. Gravel and pretty level. You can't see the lake from the sites - lots of trees. Although Ponca City has free WiFi, it doesn't extend to this park but would probably work if you had a booster. We do not. Dog-friendly with lots of grass. Fills up on weekends, but during the week it is pretty private. No water at the sites, but several taps located throughout the park. - Runamokdog

Weird sort of park. There are 3 sites that are back ins, others are pull up and figure out where you fit. Payment is on the honor system. 3 miles east of US 77. Good for an overnight stop - noticed a couple of people who were probably there for an extended period of time. Water is available if you have long hoses - water spigot for every 3-4 sites. - PugetSound

The is a small, no-frills campground. Entry to the campground is easy on a paved road. Drive slow - cattle may be crossing the road.
The campground is heavily wooded and surrounded by open fields. The campsites are gravel and fairly level. All sites are pull through. I did have to position my trailer carefully in order to be able to open the slides - trees are close to campsites.
Restrooms and laundry are clean and modern. I did not use wi-fi or cable.
The camp host (Julie) is helpful and friendly, but not intrusive.
I will stay here again. - waterlover63

Nice little place out in the middle of nowhere. Except for some wild underage kids speeding around in the park in a golf cart, we enjoyed the one night we stayed there. This is a very nice little park. Manager was very helpful and we would come back. - Largeandy

They have added a new recreation building to the park this year. The park is located 2.4 miles south of Pawhuska in a wooded glen. Very quiet and yet convenient to the town and museums. The sites are gravel and fairly level so you will need little effort to set up. They also have two storm shelters, just in case. There is a nice fishing lake within walking distance. - A hitch and hop

All utilities worked fine, no sewer smell, good wifi. No trees above 6 feet - no shade. No train or traffic noise. Park is overgrown - needs mowing. The only place to put our trash was a big open construction bin at the west entrance. We would not stay here again. Everything was OK but there is no ambience. - SusanRon

Like this park, plenty of room between campers, all sites pull-thru. Dirt/gravel base, graded level. 50Amp, water, sewage, $100 deposit for a cable box with good selection of channels and the option to rent a router from the cable company for hardline internet for those working from 'home'. Lots of workers here, employed at refinery or wind farms, but no noise problems noted. Storm cellar for emergencies - gun range - rental cabins border two sides. Nice people to deal with. Plan to stay there again! - Ditchdoc

Long gravel/rock/grass/mud sites with wide grass separation. Good electric. Far distant train and highway sound. Dogs didn't seem to get any burrs in their feet while being walked. Good cable TV with $100 deposit cable box. That's where the good ends. Extremely slow WiFi/Internet. Hose bibs are below grade and at our site the dirt hole was almost too small to connect a hose and then filled with water. Other reviewer commented about smell of distant refinery but it was more likely the odor given off by all of the upcapped sewer connections. Placed a chunk of concrete over those on the adjacent sites. No picnic tables. Office doesn't open until 11 AM so must wait until then to obtain $100 cable box deposit refund. Showers cost an additional $5 at the office. Site surfaces vary from smooth to rutted with 3" rocks. - Markk
