Lake Wister State Park, located in southeast Oklahoma, is a gateway to the beautiful Ouachita National Forest.  Offering over five camping areas around the scenic 7,300 surface acres of Lake Wister, this state park is a haven of outdoor recreational activity.  Visitors to Lake Wister State Park can enjoy a variety of activities including hiking, camping, biking, boating and water skiing.  As an added bonus, the park is also equipped with a water spray park, a popular destination for children and adults alike.

Camping facilities at Lake Wister State Park include 15 cabins, 20 tent sites, and a total of 118 modern and semi-modern RV sites.  Book a cozy cabin within the park and enjoy lake or park view cabins complete with stone-framed fireplaces.  The park's cabins, surrounded by groves of dogwood, wild cherry and northern spruce, offer easy access to hiking trails and Lake Wister's 115 miles of shoreline.  One-bedroom and two-bedroom cabins, accommodating four to six guests, feature one to two queen-size beds in each bedroom, linens, sleeper sofas and a 32 inch satellite flat screen TV.  Pets are welcome to stay in a select number of cabins at the park for a daily pet fee.  Lake Wister State Park also offers a fully-equipped group camp that can accommodate up to 100 visitors and includes a full kitchen and dining hall.
