As others have said, this a a remote area in the Oklahoma Panhandle. The sites are grass and quite close to each other, although the ones nearer to the restroom seem a little better spaced out. We were there on a Wednesday and Thursday, and there were several empty spaces. Restrooms were clean and well maintained. There was definitely a sewage odor in the restroom vicinity, however. There are several small nature hikes in the campground itself, but you have to drive to reach the Black Mesa trail head. We camped at Black Mesa State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

There is NO gas station in Kenton....nearest gas is in Boise City. If you are in the area, the hike to the top of Black Mesa is worthwhile, if for no other reason than to say you have bagged the highest "peak" in Oklahoma. The hike is fairly long, so be sure you are prepared with lots of water.

Stayed during the week early in the season and there was only one other RV there. Ranger is very friendly and helpful. Quiet with the exception of an occasional vehicle on the main road through the park but we selected the site near the road due to easy access. No cell phone service but you can drive to the top of a nearby hill and get AT&T. RV dump is difficult to get to for a big rig. Very remote campground but near Black Mesa Nature Preserve. Hiked Black Mesa and saw 12 bighorn sheep. We camped at Black Mesa State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed two days in Black Mesa State Park, but wish we could have stayed more. The park is beautiful. There was only one other occupied site. It was pleasant to hike the nature trail, do a bit of bicycling, and just relax. Your cell phone won't work, but there is Wi-Fi, at least near the park office. The skies were crystal clear, and there were lots of stars at night. Black Mesa State Park is an undiscovered gem for those who enjoy nature We camped at Black Mesa State Park in a Travel Trailer.

If you are looking for peace and solitude, this is the place. It is way out in the far reaches of No Man's Land. Have all that you need with you and enjoy your stay. It's a great place to get away from it all. We camped at Black Mesa State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful spot in a remote location on the plains. The nearest "town" is Kenton, 8 miles away where you will find a small general store and two gas pumps. Don't arrive here low on fuel because you may have to travel a long way - depending on which direction you're heading - before you can refuel. There is a country store on the park grounds, but plan to have everything you need with you before you arrive. There are a dozen or so sites with 30-amp and water, one pull thru. Also many other dry camp sites. $2 off rates for seniors (over 62). Be sure to you know directions before you travel because some of the turns and roads are not marked. Also, depending on your carrier, you probably will not have cell phone coverage in the park. Lots of hiking opportunities and plenty of wild life. We had mule deer and wild turkeys strolling around our RV each morning we were there. We will stay here again when passing though. We camped at Black Mesa State Park in a Motorhome.
