This campground exceeded our expectations for both camping and wildlife and all for $10 with our Senior Pass! Sites were long enough and straight enough to back into without unhooking our trailer. Filled our fresh water tank from one of many threaded faucets scattered around campground and had a choice of 20, 30, or 50 amp power. Great shade from the many oak trees around our site, a lake within walking distance where we spotted geese, ducks, and herons, an entire herd of white-tail deer right in the middle of the loop, and a flock of 11 wild turkeys walking down the road. Fortunately, none of the resident refuge bison, elk, or longhorn cattle appeared in the campground. We will definitely be back in the spring when the bison calves are born. We camped at Doris Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Rate reflects Golden Age Passport 1/2 price discount. This popular campground has lots of campsites, most of which are level and well-spaced. There are a limited number of electrical hookup sites however, so you should be prepared to possibly dry camp upon arrival. Plenty of water spigots scattered throughout the campground areas, so fill your tanks before heading to your individual site. We saw a herd of 11 deer and a herd of 9 turkey stroll right through the campsite, and there were plenty of buffalo, large-racked elk, and long horn cattle to be seen from the roads in the park. Beautiful view from the top of Mt. Scott, and lots of gorgeous rock scenery everywhere in the park. This is a park we want to visit again so we can explore it more thoroughly and hike some of the trails. We camped at Doris Campground in a Motorhome.

Doris campground at the Wichita Mountain Wildlife Refuge just west of Lawton, Ok and Fort Sill. Nearby excellent nature center, prairie dog towns, Mount Scott vistas, Fort Sill museums. At times frequent artillery explosion thuds are heard during the day. With Golden Passport $9/night. The park has paved roads and sites. About a third with electricity. Several water faucets. A dump station. Bathrooms were dark and dingy, but water hot. Some areas with pit toilets. Lots of nice shade with post oaks. A good value but more and cleaner bathrooms adequate to the number of camp sites would be an improvement. We camped at Doris Campground in a Motorhome.

This campground is in the Wichita Mountains National Wildlife Refuge. There are walk-in primitive sites, drive in semi-primitive sites with no hookups, group sites with electric and shelters, and 50 amp electric sites. Most sites have fire pits, and firewood is available at the entrance. There is a dump station and fresh water at the entrance, and fresh water standpipes at various points in the park. There is a shower house/restroom, a restroom only, and pit toilets. The restroom was clean before the Memorial Day weekend, dirty during the holiday weekend as the park was very full. From our campsite we have seen buffalo, deer, squirrels, and birds. On walks we also saw 2 coyotes, Canada geese, turtles, lizards, and hawks. The only drawback was that there are small ticks in the park. I would hesitate to camp here with a dog, and you NEED Deep Wood's OFF or similar bug repellent, and to examine clothes and yourself several times per day. I recommend this wooded park for a get away, especially during non-holiday times, but prepare in advance for ticks. We camped at Doris Campground in a Motorhome.

This is one nice place to camp. Buffalo and longhorn cattle roam around. Water is available at different places around the park so one can fill up tank. There is an interpretive center that is very nice for families and do not forget to go to Meers and grab a hamburger! You will not forget this place. We camped at Doris Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
