Guests of Roman Nose Lodge will enjoy a wealth of recreational activities at the park's 18-hole golf course, swimming pool, equestrian trails, hiking trails and two on-site lakes (Lake Boecher and Lake Watonga). Swimming in the lakes is not allowed, but guests can fish and boat in the no-wake lakes. Miniature golf, a general store and horse riding stables are all available.

From Bart Tunnell on 12/08/16

My work was in the Watonga area & acceptable rooms were miles away. The lodge was recommended by a customer. The rooms are clean, comfortable & are comparable to moderately priced chains. The restaurant was a nice, convenient surprise. The food & service were great. I would recommend this lodge to anyone. Due to weather conditions, I extended my stay. Excellent customer service from check in, stay, restaurant & check out. I definitely will book here again.

From Joyce Jay on 10/04/16

First- we enjoyed our stay and everything was beautiful. After getting a room secured for the evening it was dark before we went to the car for our bags. My husband was rolling he luggage rack, I was following, there was a slight noise and I looked down to find him flat of the ground on his back. He thankfully wasn't hurt. You have about 4 pillars at the entrance that would stop any vehicle from coming into the front of the lodge. They rise maybe a 18, 20 or so inches, they were unlit - the whole entrance at that was unlit. He said he didn't know what happened, he just found himself on the pavement. I am mostly writing this to suggest your entrance be lit more so that people can see the pillars. Put pillars with lights or something. Maybe they do have lights and they just hadn't come on yet. Again we very much enjoyed our visit. Everyone was very nice and pleasant.

Charlotte, the vast majority of visitors to the park have a great time, and we forward any complaints we receive along to the park office. The park manager, Travis Lindley, will be more than happy to address any concerns you have before visiting. Please give him a call at 580-623-7281. Thank you for using!

From Charlotte on 08/01/16

We read the reviews & want to know if the same park ranger is still employed there or has he been terminated? Thinking about visiting. Thank you.

From Staff on 07/25/16

Linda, your best bet is to use the green "Book Cabins & Lodge Rooms" button at the top of the page or give the lodge staff a call at 580-623-7281. Thank you for using!

From Linda Oates on 07/24/16

Learning that Roman Nose State Park is listed as a top 10 park in OK IVe tried numerous times to reserve our visit. What are tips of best times and what hoops we need to jump through to get opportunity to experience a stay at Roman Nose. Any suggestions would greatly be appreciated. Would like to stay in our RV & camp, or reserve a cabin or room at lodge!

From Thomas on 07/11/16

I was shocked by the bathroom conditions at the swimming pool. Terrible and hard to believe. What is the deal?

From Staff on 07/06/16

Sarah, we have a Roman Nose State Park listing separate from this one for the lodge. If you take a look, you'll find 123 photos of the park, from nature scenes to family-friendly activities. Thank you for using!

From Sarah on 07/06/16

I LOVE visiting the springs there. I wanted to find some pictures to show a friend how beautiful it is. As I look through the 15 pictures provided I am extremely disappointed. No pictures of the beautiful nature! The bathroom sinks, a coffee maker, 2 pictures of magazines sitting on tables, a golf ball! Is that what people are really going there for? Does that bring visitors? Where are the photos of the water, trees, pavillion and playground area

From owner on 06/25/16

Sandy, we do have 2 private meeting rooms. Please call 800-892-8690 Monday through Friday and ask for our group and event planner and she will be able to help you.

I am looking for a place to have my husbands 50th birthday party for about 50 people do you have a private room for parties

From Jonathan Wallace on 03/31/16

We have been to the park multiple times for camping, hiking, kayaking, and one of the best horse rides around, but about 18 months ago my wife and I had an outdoor wedding there, and it was a blessed experience. My only conplaint is that they didnt have very good response times to my calls during the planning due to understaffing and busy time of year, but the ranger made much accomodation for us, and was very patient, even when we were late getting out by dark. I highly reccomend others wedding there, and it

From Staff on 03/21/16

James, we're sorry to hear about your negative experience at the park, and we hope you had a chance to speak to the park staff during your stay so that they could address the issues. Our rangers and camp hosts regularly check the grounds, but if you see a dog owner who is not following the rules, please feel free to contact the park staff in person or by calling 580-623-7281. Thank you for using!

From james parker on 03/17/16

Nice park but the restroom and showers suck dirty and no hot water. There was also dog stuf all over the campground so much for cleaning up after dogs.

From Michelle sander on 02/02/16

We had our daughter's wedding in the park. The employees were great and provided an awesome warm atmosphere. The wedding party stayed for 4 days. Highly recommend this park for all your family fun

Ashley, this is the page for Roman Nose Lodge. We list campsite information on the Roman Nose State Park page at Pets are welcome in all of Oklahoma's state parks provided they are cleaned up after and kept on a leash no longer than 10 feet. Campsite rates are $12 for a tent site with no hookups, $20 for an RV site with water and electric and $23 for full hookup sites. Some sites, like those along the water's edge, are designated as 'premium' and cost an additional $5. Happy camping and thank you for using!

From Ashley on 02/08/15

Where is the information about campsites? I need to find out pricing and if pets are allowed. Thank you

From Amanda Reyburn on 08/09/14

I was at the Roman Nose Lodge and I asked for the fried catfish, but I didn't want the hush puppies as I don't like hush puppies. I asked for something else and they said I couldn't substitute something else. This is a huge waste, first of all and ridiculous. If I am willing to pay more for something else, then I should get something else. After all, I am a paying customer.

From Staff on 07/11/14

David, sorry for any confusion. This is the page for the lodge. If you'd like to see more information on the lake or the park in general, please click on those links under 'See Related Listings' on the upper right side of this page. Best wishes and thank you for using!

From David Lebow on 07/10/14

Why are all of the pictures of the lodge? Why none of the swimming pool or lake?

From Jon A. Morgan Joyce Morgan on 10/24/13

We have been taking our camper to Roman Nose for the last 6 years. You will never meet nicer people and the country is beautiful. If you have never been you won't be sorry if you go. We love this place and the people.

From Staff on 09/26/13

Marcia, Lake Watonga is famous for its rainbow trout, so we're sure you'll have a great time! As to cabin availability please call Roman Nose State Park at 580-623-7281. Have a great trip and thank you for using!

From Marcia Rowland on 09/26/13

My lifelong friend and I have recently retired and love to fish for trout. We would possibly like to rent a cabin the first 3 days of November. Can you give me rates and make any suggestions for 2 ladies.

Kandy, please give the Roman Nose State Park staff a call at 580-623-7281, and they will be more than happy to help you plan your trip. Best wishes and thank you for using!

From kandy on 09/20/13

we are planning a camping trip for girl scouts so far we have about 15 girls and 8 moms, we were wanting to rent the cabins for a night, can you tell me how many it will sleep and the rates

From Staff on 09/16/13

Laura, according to Roman Nose State Park staff, two of the park's 11 cabins are pet friendly, but no pets are allowed in the lodge. There is an additional fee of $10 per pet per night in the cabins. Dogs are allowed in the campgrounds for no additional fee as long as they are kept on a leash no longer than 10 feet and cleaned up after. If you have any questions, please call 580-623-7281. Please mention that you have a pet if you do choose to stay in a cabin. Best wishes and thank you for using!

From Laura on 09/16/13

I will be coming with Bet Ami. I need to understand the rules about bringing my dog. Will it make a difference if I sleep in a cabin or a tent? I will feel safer if he is with me.

From Staff on 07/10/13

Kenneth, we're so sorry that you did not enjoy your time spent at Roman Nose State Park! Lake Watonga and Lake Boecher are Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation lakes, so their primary purpose is for fishing and wildlife habitat. Swimming, wading and floating rafts are not allowed. We have updated the description to better reflect that. We sincerely hope that you'll give our state parks another visit in the future. Best wishes and thank you for using!

From Kenneth Patrick on 07/10/13

we take our grand kids from TN to a different State Park every year and Roman Nose has been by far the biggest disappointment we've had. No where on the web site does it say you can't swim in the lake. Who ever heard of such. It's just for fishing. They have a nice big swimming pool but you have pay to swim in it. We could swim in the lodge pool and enjoyed that because no one else was there. Imagine that. We ate at the lodge and it took us over an hour to get our meal. We had to send one plate back because it was cold. Sad vacation for our grand kids.

From Staff on 07/08/13

Keith, you can reserve lodge rooms by clicking the green 'Book Now' button at the top of this page. Best wishes and thank you for using!

From Keith Dietz on 07/06/13

Is there a website to reserve rooms at the lodge?

From Staff on 06/17/13

Melissa, pets are allowed in two of the park's 11 cabins, so please let the staff know that you will be bringing along your furry friend when you call to make reservations. There is also an additional fee of $10 per night. Have a great time at Roman Nose State Park and thank you for using!

From Melissa James on 06/17/13

I was wondering if the cabins are pet friendly?

From Staff on 06/10/13

Amy, each of the cabin's kitchens is equipped with pots, pans and cooking utensils. There are also enough plates, cups and silverware for the maximum number of occupants in the cabin. If you have any questions, please give Roman Nose State Park a call at 580-623-7281. Best wishes and thank you for using!

From amy on 06/08/13

I was wondering if the kitchen in the cabins has pots and pans?

From irene morgan on 05/20/13

i was there with my sewing group on a retreat. we each had at least one sewing machine and other electrical appliances. we used the conference room for our retreat. there is no electricity on one whole wall of that room. it made it difficult to get our machines plugged in. some of these machines are very expensive and with this situation, it put them all at risk of power failure. The service at the restaurant was deplorable. it took at least 45 minutes to be served a chicken green salad. i realize that your restaurant is not a fast food place, but that length of time is just not acceptable. if i come again iI will be sure to plan to eat my meals elsewhere.

My wife and I celebrated our 12 anniversary at the lodge, we were very pleased with the accommodations. The food was first rate and the service was outstanding.

We enjoyed every meal and the waitress and waiter were very friendly and professional. The only complaint wa

Where can I see pictures of the cabins and where they are located. Are they close together or how are they arranged?

From Gena McPhail on 03/21/12

We LOVE this park!! Although....we have stayed in the cabins, years past, and remember the cabins being comfortable for the entire family. They are way too small, now, just for a family of four. Next time we will have to rent two cabins just to comfortably accomodate the family of 6. Great golf....Great stable.....great restaurant.....we will always have great memories of this place!!

From Staff on 02/28/12

From Doug on 09/04/11

We were very disappointed that the Lodge pool was closed. Do you know when it will be open again? We are planning on having three family reunions, but would like to have the lodge pool opened. Every part of the lodge looks great and we are excited to return.....also, bring back the baked potato on your menu. Thank you!

From Jesse Benjamin Jr. on 06/27/11

Very nice place to visit loved there cottages

From Chris on 02/16/11

Why in the world would the state of Oklahoma build a brand new lodge that doesn't even have a room for a family? Who in the world thought a room with a queen and twin bed was a good idea? Not a family friendly lodge!!!!!!
