Joe, here is the breakdown of picnic pavilions at Dripping Springs State Park. Clovis Point Shelter is the largest offering eight picnic tables with benches, electric, water and grills. It is located next to the restroom and the playground and has a nice view of Dripping Springs Lake. The Beach Shelter offers electric, water, grill and four picnic tables with benches. It's at the water's edge of Dripping Springs Lake also near the restrooms and playground. For more information, please call the park at 918-756-5971. Thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From Joe on 06/30/15

Does the Clovis Point campground have waterfront tent sites? Also, is there a reservable picnic shelter that could accommodate approx. 40 people?


From TravelOK.com Staff on 06/29/15

Mel, in addition to your tent, one child's tent for your dependent minors under 18 is allowed at no additional charge. If you have any questions, please call the park office at 918-756-5971. Thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From Mel on 06/28/15

Is it $12 per tent site or per tent ON the site? Such as can multiple tents share a site for $12 or each tent pays for it's own spot?


From TravelOK.com Staff on 06/12/15

Vicki, we're sorry you're having problems making RV reservations. At this time, Dripping Springs State Park is not in the online reservation system and all sites are available on a first come, first serve basis. However, Okmulgee State Park, which is in the same area, does accept online reservations. Please visit www.travelok.com/state_parks_rv_sites and click on Okmulgee State Park for more information. Please keep in mind that all reservations must be made at least five days in advance. Thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From TravelOK.com Staff on 06/12/15

Sue, thanks for your interest in Dripping Springs State Park! Your best bet for that information will be to speak with the park staff by calling 918-756-5971, as they can tell you the busiest days and when would be best to visit. Another option would be to reserve a site at Okmulgee State Park, which is right in the same area. You can do that by visiting www.travelok.com/state_parks_rv_sites and clicking on Okmulgee State Park. Thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From Vicki Jones on 06/12/15

Im trying to make reservations for an RV site to camp with Electric. I called and was told to go to gocampOK.com but its not letting me make a reservation. Help me please. The date I want is June 19 & 20. Thanks


From Sue on 06/11/15

We want to spend a week at Dripping Springs this summer, but we are concerned about not being able to make reservations. We live in Louisiana, so we have quite a drive. When would be a good time to come up so that we will be more likely to get a premium site?


From TravelOK.com Staff on 06/03/15

Jody, obviously your best bet for ensuring a good spot is getting there early like you have planned. For more information on the overflow area pricing and amenities, please call the park office at 918-756-5971. Have a great trip and thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From Jody Hilton on 06/03/15

We are trying to plan camping at Dripping Springs and week of the 4th of July. We are aware it might pack up, we are coming out on Monday morning but my question is in the overflow area is there water and electric and is it the same price as being on the camp pads? Thanks Jody


From Caitlin on 04/10/15

I love this camp grounds. I always go to the same spot and never disappointed till that one summer some one was in my favorite spot. I staid next to it and had spiders all over my tent, so my friends and I staid up late making noises in the woods and breaking twigs. When we woke up the next morning they where gone! Lol I got my favorite spot and a story to tell by the fire.


From TravelOK.com Staff on 02/09/15

From TravelOK.com Staff on 04/23/14

Jody, totally disabled discounts are 50% off the base rate for camping with proof of disability. Additional rates for electric, sewer or water are not discounted. The base rate for primitive tent camping is $12 and the base rate for RV camping is $20. However, to get a site with full hookups, you'll be paying an extra $3 per night, and if it's considered a premium site, like close to the water's edge or recently upgraded, it's an additional $5 per night. If you have any questions, we encourage you to speak with the park office staff in person or by calling 918-756-5971. Have a great day and thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From Jody on 04/22/14
