Monica, the cost for tent camping is $12 per night, though if you choose a site with electric hookups it is $20 per night. Lake Murray State Park offers over 500 tent sites and over 300 RV sites, so you shouldn't have any issues finding a spot in July. However, it does get very busy over the July 4th weekend, so if that's when you're looking to visit you may want to call the park staff at 580-223-4044 to see how full they are. You can find more information by clicking on 'Lake Murray State Park & Lodge' under 'Related Listings' on the upper right side of this page. Have a great day and thank you for using TravelOK.com!

From TravelOK.com Staff on 01/22/13

Eugene, our most recent information on Elephant Rock is that 19 semi-modern RV sites with electric & water are available for $25 a night. Eight of those have 30-amp hookups and the rest have 50 amp. There are 39 modern RV sites with 50 amp electric, sewer and water hookups for $23 a night. Unfortunately, no reservations are being accepted for RV or tent camping sites, but the Oklahoma Tourism & Recreation Department is currently working with other state agencies and their contractors to put a reservation system in place for Oklahoma State Parks, and we're looking forward to an early 2013 release date. Until then all campsites at Lake Murray State Park are available on a first come, first serve basis. Best wishes and thank you for using TravelOK.com!
