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! We camped at Lake Ponca Park in a Truck Camper.

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. We camped at Lake Ponca Park in a Motorhome.

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.
