The campground is situated on a finger of land, affording water views to nearly every campsite. Several have water access. The campground roads are paved and the sites are gravel. Each site has a covered picnic table and fire pit. They are reasonably level, mostly with shade, and 30 amp electric and water. There are no full hookup spots. We arrived on a weekend and the place was nearly full with lots of people fishing, boating, and jet skiing. Several children were playing in the water. By Sunday night most everyone had left and there were lots of prime sites available to travelers. Generally speaking, the sites looking out over the lake itself are on a bluff. Those on the cove are closer to water level. We were mildly disappointed that the weeds between us and the lake on our bluff side spot were tall enough to obstruct what would have been great lake views. I had no problem getting satellite TV and my Verizon 4G was weak but usable. Probably the biggest negative to this campground is getting to it. It is about 30 miles from I-35 and the roads get increasingly rough, narrow, and hilly as you travel. Whether or not traveling these roads is worthwhile for you depends on how long you plan to stay and how much you enjoy a lakeside campground. - nazpaz

This is COE park, it was very clean, new restrooms and were very clean, they are the kind that gets stuffing and hot in the summer...so shower early or late. We stayed in #47, #48 and #49 with a group of friends, these are very large, flat and nice sites. Each site has a covered table, fire pit, grill and small table for serving. There are lots of trees for shade. Most sites have trees, however a few are in the sun. Most sites are long, however a very few are kind of short, so pay attention to the length when you reserve the site. The lake was very muddy, which is to be expected since it is a river lake. We caught several nice catfish on jug lines...almost enough for a fish fry! We stayed 3 nights. The camp hosts were very nice. The park was very quiet even though it was full...I am thinking that is because the sites are pretty nice size. The ones down by the boat ramp are closer together, but still better than other places we have been. There is a boat ramp in the park that is nice and wide with a boat dock as well that will fit 3 boats docking while waiting for trailers to be backed down. There is really no swimming area in this park, but you can drive a few miles down to a designated swimming area in I think it was called Pioneer Park. - Fonda

We found the park to be shady and well mowed. Bathrooms and showers were spacious and clean. Previous campers had left trash that was not picked up. Choose your sites carefully as some are small and grassy. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would camp there again. - HappyKSCamper

This park is off the beaten path but it is on a real nice lake. The campground has numerous poorly maintained sites. The whole park needs some TLC. We got one of the best sites number 12. You have 30 amps electric, no water on site and no sewer. There are a very few water faucets to fill your tank or you can bring in your own water. There are no dumpsters in the campground; they are outside the campground at the dump station. The dump station is well designed. We would stay here again. - Kent and Margaret

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

This is a small park with big heart. Its best feature is being convenient and close to The Pioneer Woman's Mercantile in downtown Pawhuska. But, the park was also peaceful and nicely cared for. The host was kind, helpful and friendly. She went out of her way to be helpful with our reservations. The site layout is kind of random but we had no trouble leveling on the packed gravel, shady site. There's a small playground for kids and a laundry room as well as showers. There's a small fishing lake, but we didn't check it out. Cable TV was good. There was no wifi but Verizon signal was good for data use. - dinahkaye

This is a very clean and comfortable campground. Bathroom and showers were very clean, as well as laundry room. Our camp host was extremely friendly. She had lots of information about the vicinity, places to go and things to see. She is a very hard worker and keeps the campground very clean! We will definitely stay here again! - btippie

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

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
