Park was kind of dirty. Restrooms were dirty, with no toilet paper. Also no doors on the restrooms or showers. Neighbors were drinking, cussing , carrying on until around 1am. No park ranger to be seen. No rules it seems. Talked to a group of girl scouts & they also were not happy with their stay because of this. We camped at Wes Watkins Lake Campground in a Tent.

We like the park but the restroom and showers were as some of the worst I have seen or smelled. The beach areas were found to have trash strung out and trash cans overflowing. This is a nice park just needs to be maintained property for us to use on a regular basis. We camped at Wes Watkins Lake Campground in a Tent Trailer.

Nice quiet campground that was rather sparsely inhabited during our visit. No attendants on duty, however the Mcloud PD does patrol the area and insure that the honor system is kept honorable. Decent water and 50 amp service, however, no sewer. We used their bathrooms for showers and used their dump station on the way out. Temps during the day very pleasant for August, and the evenings were cool, so we enjoyed a campfire most nights. No WiFi, but we did get a few decent TV channels with our antenna. Not many services close by, however we enjoyed being unplugged for a few days as we visited with an old high school friend. Would certainly return. We camped at Wes Watkins Lake Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We found this city park during a recent stay to visit family living in Choctaw. Since its January, the bathhouse is closed but we don't need it anyway. 50 amp with water met all our needs. We had the entire placeto ourselves! Nice spacious pull through and back in sites with picnic tables and makeshift fire rings. No attendant this time of year so its on the honor system to make payment in a box up front. The park is easy access off of I40 and the interior roads are paved. Sites are paved and mostly level. Lots of smallish trees around for some shade in the summer. The park is on a lake with lots of fishing, boating, swimming, picnicking type of activities. Verizon signal was good. We will stay here again when we return in the fall. We camped at Wes Watkins Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice campground with adequate sites and water/electric. We have stayed here 3 times and the bathroom facility is sickening. It was dirty, no doors on the toilet or curtain in the shower. The walls are 3 ft. tall like somebody was afraid of what could happen in the place. Have seen similar stupidity in other places in OK. We camped at Wes Watkins Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Had some things to do in Shawnee and OKC and usually stay at the KOA but decided to try the lake and really like it. Very quiet and peaceful in the middle of the week. Only a couple of miles off the Interstate.

Run by the city of McCloud so services are slim but the place was very clean and well kept. We camped at Wes Watkins Lake Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is great pleasant surprise campground to to stay at, with new 50 amp service and asphalt paved level pull-through parking pads. We had great DirecTV and Verizon Wireless coverage. We had nice shade too. There were very few campers in the park. The fishing is supposed to be great in the lake too. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Wes Watkins Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice, quiet city-run campground located a short distance from I-40. The sites and campground are very clean and spacious with a woodsy feel. Our pull-through site was asphalt and level. The sites are first come/first served and on the honor system for payment, so bring cash. We had good Verizon cell service with adequate Verizon hotspot for Internet. We couldn't get satellite, but there was heavy cloud cover, so it's possible that was why. We were able to get 4 over-air channels. We would stay here again. We camped at Wes Watkins Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a nice park. Water and electric worked well. Sites were large and fairly level. When there is no attendant, there is an "honor box" that you can use to register and pay. The park was clean, quiet, and neat. Unfortunately, restrooms were closed for the winter. The attendant was friendly and very helpful, opening the restrooms for us but the showers were not operational because the water heaters had been disassembled. We camped at Wes Watkins Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The park is beautiful! Large, shaded sites with grass in between. Lots of birds! There was only one other RV there, so we really felt like we were in a private woods! Each site has a table and a fire-ring. The downside was the young woman at the gate. She was "new" and didn't have any knowledge of the park, or how to direct us to the RV section, or how to read the site map, or whether or not there were pull-throughs. Luckily with very few people and vehicles there, we were able to drive around and find a site. We would stay here again for an overnight, now that we know where to find the RV section. We camped at Wes Watkins Lake Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Overall Rating:

Best kept secret in Oklahoma! A multi-use public facility that is family and pet friendly located in rural Oklahoma halfway between Shawnee and Oklahoma City. Very quiet. Malcontents and miscreants are not tolerated. All grass throughout the park, lots of space between campsites and the facilities are very well maintained. The major drawback to this park is the entry gate, which is closed and locked at 8:30 pm. Be at the gate before that time to gain access. You can exit but can not re-enter until 6:00 am. We camped at Wes Watkins Lake Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
