Picnic tables are on the wrong side. Trees need to be trimmed, they will hit your trailer in many sites. Some sites are so close together you cannot pull out your awning without hitting the trailer next to you. Grass needs to be mowed. I tried calling the park office several times during a weekday, no one answers. We camped at Tenkiller State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nicely maintained state park with reasonably clean restrooms and showers. Several different camping areas within the park - some with more services and higher cost than others. Premium sites are even more, and the quoted rate does not include a utility surcharge which can almost double your cost, in some cases. The park is surrounded by water but, unfortunately, except for a handful of places, you would hardly know it. The State has apparently decided to allow the foliage to grow wild along the shorelines, and in most places, it totally obscures the view. No water views from the campgrounds. Plenty of walking trails and a good place to visit if you bring a boat. Swimming, Frisbee golf, etc available. Very family friendly; pets OK. Bring bug spray - we were there in May and the ticks were horrible! We camped at Tenkiller State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Had reserved for Chicken Creek but got wrong directions off internet, so ended up at Tenkiller. At Tenkiller wanted to stay in water/electric only for one night. Ended up at Fox Squirrel Camp when couldn't find working electric and nearby water in that camp and got stung by wasp when lifting electric hookup box cover!! Fox Squirrel site was excellent with a grill and table and nearby clean restroom! We camped at Tenkiller State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed 2 nights in Shady Grove campsite within the State Park towards the back of the Park property and up a hill. Polite and helpful registration staff. Narrow asphalt drive into the campground with level concrete pads at each site requiring nothing unusual for set up. Campsite only had 30 amp service, while we needed 50 amp, and was no where to be found. Utilities worked as expected. Very shady campground. A fairly long drive back to the entrance and other services. Was just an OK experience. We camped at Tenkiller State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed in the newer edition at the Flying Squirrel campground. Shade was sparse and water hydrants were even sparser and bathrooms in that sector were nonexistent. Our section was right next to the the highway. There was a store and a nightclub across the highway from the park. It was sort of like camping near the "strip" in your home town without any noticeable gunfire. This is not a good place just to go camping. We camped at Tenkiller State Park in a Travel Trailer.

I rated this park 5/5 because it isn't what I personally am looking for in a park, however, other people will love it. We had one of the premium sites, and the water and sewer hookups were easy and convenient. The site had lots of gravel and a nice pad to keep the inside of your RV clean. They were reasonably shady. It's in a lovely area and the camp host was very nice. There is a playground, a pool, only in summer, nature centers and of course the lake which has excellent diving, for a lake. It looked like large RVs were able to get in pretty easily. You could make reservations for the Fox Squirrel area which I really appreciate because other state parks in OK in the past didn't allow reservations. However, I like spaces that are more spread out. But, if you were with a group and wanted to be near one another, it would be great. I like to be right on the lake and be able jump right in, and we had to drive to get to the lake. Some of the sites back up to a road and you can hear noise from the restaurants, so choose carefully. I would not have chosen this park, but we were with a group. I personally like more rustic places, with more quiet places to walk the dogs and better lake access. The restrooms still only have 1 shower and 2 toilets in each, so if you are not self-contained beware. We camped at Tenkiller State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Half of this campground was built in the 1950'S and about 50 sites were added recently. The bathroom facility that was built in the 1950's has not been updated. There is one shower for men and one shower for women. The additional sites did not include any new bathroom facilities. Sewer connections are next to the road and you need about 35 ft. of hose to reach them. In the new section you could need 150 ft. of hose to reach water. In conclusion we will not return unless they wise up and modernize. We camped at Tenkiller State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Great camp site. Very rocky for setting up a tent, we hit rocks a few inches below the surface everywhere and had to clear rocks for a smooth tent floor. Great lake for fishing or watersports. Nice restaurant on the water too. Great time. Bathrooms were clean and showers were hot. We camped at Tenkiller State Park in a Tent.
