Steve, all reservable sites within the Little Axe Campground offer 30 amp hookups. The Hickory Hill and Little Sandy Campgrounds offer 50 amp hookups, but unfortunately those campgrounds are not included in the online reservation system. Your best bet is to call the park office at 405-360-3572, and the staff there will be able to tell you how many 50 amp sites are available before you visit. Thank you for using TravelOK.com!

Are there any campsites with 50 amp. I only see one campground, Little Axe, with 30 amp on the reservation system

Bob, the Hickory Hill and Lower Little Sandy campgrounds are the two campgrounds at Lake Thunderbird State Park that have full hookup sites. If you have any questions, please call the park office at 405-360-3572. Thank you for using TravelOK.com!

Are there any Modern RV sites at Little Axe? Water, electricity and sewer?

Kathy, if you get to Lake Thunderbird State Park before the park office opens, go ahead and set up your campsite. A camp host or ranger will be around later in the day to collect your dues. Or, you can also pay at the park office once they open. Happy camping and thank you for using TravelOK.com!

Karen, search 'Clear Bay Recreation Area Trail System' using the bar at the top of this page. Click Things to Do and you'll see a link to the map on the right side of the page. For more information, please call the park office at 405-360-3572. Best wishes and thank you for using TravelOK.com!

Where can I find a map that shows hiking trails that you have listed on your State Parks brochures?

Joelle, in order to camp at Lake Thunderbird State Park, a parent or someone 18 years or older must be present. If you have any questions, please call 405-360-3572. Have a great day and thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From Joelle on 04/29/14

Do you have to be over 18 to camp without a parent or someone over 18?


From Rick Unsell on 07/27/12

$12-$17 seems awful expensive just to put a tent on the lake considering RV spots are only a few dollars more and they have electricity. Also when will ther be a gaurd at the Little Axe campground? i have camped a couple times there this year and there is alot of people coming down and day camping, not paying any fees, and taking some of the good spots.

Terrie, if you're asking if it costs money to bring a dog camping with you at Lake Thunderbird, the answer would be no. Please keep all pets on a leash in the state park, clean up after them and never leave them unattended at your campsite. Have a great time at Lake Thunderbird and thank you for using TravelOK.com.


From Terrie on 05/30/12

How much is it to being a dog to stay at the lake.
