Do you have picnic pavilions that can be rented for a day? How many people can they accommodate?


From TravelOK.com Staff on 06/23/15

Noland, three campgrounds offer a total of 47 semi-modern RV sites, one full hookup site and 103 primitive tent sites. A total of 10 sites are reservable in the Red Oak Campground by using the green booking link at the top of this page, while the remaining sites are available on a first come, first serve basis. The park is generally very shady, and unfortunately we don't know of any nearby Independence Day celebrations unless you want to drive south to Lake Eufaula. If you have any other questions, please call the park office at 918-756-5971. Thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From Noland on 06/22/15

Could you provide a little more info. About the RV sites? Is it full hook up, does the park offer any type of shade, and are there any near-by Fourth of July celebrations? Thanks!


From TravelOK.com Staff on 06/22/15

Breanna, fireworks are prohibited in all of Oklahoma's state parks unless you get a permit from the park manager. For more information, please call the park office at 918-756-5971. Thank you for using TravelOK.com!

Can you shoot fireworks at Okmulgee lake?


From Danyelle on 06/19/15

This is my favorite place to tent camp. I love both lakes, the hiking trails, fishing and swimming. Not big lakes but absolutely perfect for families who enjoy the outdoors. And the Rangers and staff are super friendly and helpful.


From Jody on 04/01/15

Thank You have a wonderful summer.


From TravelOK.com Staff on 04/01/15

From Jody on 03/30/15

Why is there a sign by Dripping Springs camp ground that says Clovis campgroungs where is that?


From TravelOK.com Staff on 01/23/15

Doug, great question! If you just want to search for geocaches at the park, you do not need any special permission. However, if you're interested in placing a geocache in the park, you'll need to speak with the park staff to make sure that it's in a location that won't cause erosion, etc, when others go to search for it. If you have any questions, please call Okmulgee State Park at 918-756-5971. Happy hunting and thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From Doug Eaton on 01/22/15

We will be camping here in Feb. Do I need to get permission to a geochache at this park. We camp at all the state parks and some need permission and some doe not. Thank You doug

Is there hiking trials? And campground sites? Thanks


From Jacob H on 09/24/12

Wonderful park, great scenery, decent amenities. We tent camped in the Red Oak Campground and our only complaint was the ridiculous amount of raccoons. At nightfall they would rummage through anything left out. If the park staff could reduce their populations or better secure the dumpsters I think that would help.


From glenn b on 05/18/12

great well kept park,,clean..did i say clean the only bad thing is the fish were not biting when there,,beautiful.


From TravelOK.com Staff on 02/21/12

Chad, so sorry for the misinformation about the 50 amp RV site. We have updated the listing for future reference and we apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. Best wishes and safe travels.


From Roger Wyrick on 02/21/12

Chad, not sure you will see this comment before your visit but just to let you know that in Okmulgee State Park we do not have 50 amp service on any of the sites, all are 30 amp at this time. Maybe someday we can make the upgrade. Thanks, Roger Wyrick Park Manager


From TravelOK.com Staff on 02/20/12

Chad, take a look at the detailed park map above and then call the park to get the 50 amp site details. The park staff would be happy to help you plan a great spring break getaway. Have a great time at Okmulgee State Park and thanks for using TravelOK.com.


From chad on 02/19/12

From TravelOK.com Staff on 02/15/12

Chad, yes Okmulgee State Park has 50 amp sites. Enjoy the park and thank you for using TravelOK.com.


From chad on 02/15/12

recently upgraded to a 50 amp trailer do you have 50 amp service in okmulgee state park i know dripping springs does but would prefer to stay at okmulgee state park as i have thoroughly enjoyed the time i have spent there in the past


From Roger Wyrick on 11/08/11

Thanks to all that have posted positive comments about our parks in Okmulgee on this page, if you find something wrong or have any trouble while visiting our park please let us know by contacting the Visitor Center, Camp Host or Ranger. Thank you, Park Manager


From Kristi on 11/06/11

We stayed for the weekend & had a great time. Facilities were very clean & convenient. Great place to get away close to home. We'll definitely be back!!


From Jim and Betty Veal on 10/25/11

Just finished a two week vacation at this great park. This park continues to have the best camping to be found. The sites are spacious paved sites with electric and water hook ups and pleanty of shade to keep you cool. This well kept campground can be credited to several people but especially to Bud and Beverly the camphost and to Joe and Bob. They have proved to be the most pleasant and accommodating folks we have ever encountered in all our years of camping. The bathrooms have hot showers and are cleaned every day and the grounds are maintained to prefection. We have yet to find a campground as nice as Dripping Springs State Park. A quiet, peaceful place to spend a vacation. A special thanks from Jim and Betty for a great vacation, Keep up the good work.


From clint on 08/18/11

A nice lake and a nice campground ruined by a sarcastic park ranger. Perhaps someone should explain to him that poor behavior should be saved for criminals not boating families. He ruined an otherwise great time.


From Michelle Walker on 06/30/11

My husband and I took my two children and stayed there in 6/2011 in a pop up camper. Facilities were nice and staff friendly.


From Jack on 06/14/11

Although I grew up in Creek County, which is adjacent to Okmulgee County, I have been living in Norman for more than 20 years. During most of those 20 years, my family has been camping at Okmulgee Lake a number of times. We've always been treated well, felt safe and enjoyed ourselves. The campground is typically orderly and I would say it is not a party-type atmosphere. Having 3 young girls when we first started camping there, that was very much appreciated. We are not locals, but we've never been treated badly. The park ranger has always been courteous and eager to help, as have the camphosts. I am in the process of scheduling another family reunion at one of the park pavillions because all of the approximately 50 family members had such a great time there last year. I don't normally write on sites like this, but after reading some of the earlier negative comments, I felt compelled to speak up for a park that we have throughly enjoyed for many years.


From TravelOK.com Staff on 04/26/11

Judy, primitive tent camping is 12.00 per night and with water and electric is 20.00 per night. Please call the park directly for more details and thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From judy ross on 04/25/11

How much is one or 2 nights, tent camping thanks


From Jim Veal on 04/12/11

My wife and I have stayed in this park several different time in the past few years. I have always found this to be one of the best and cleanest and most well kept parks in the state of Oklahoma. Never have I once been here when the Camphost, work crews, park rangers were not helpfull and very courteous. I have never stayed in a State Park where the restrooms and showers were kept as clean as they are at this park. This has got to be one of the best parks in Oklahoma. Thanks to everyone for making this a great place to stay.


From Roger Wyrick on 04/08/11

This message is for Rose and Jen in particular and all other visitors to this park that have a problem during their stay with us. I would appreciate an opportunity to try and help resolve issues of this type before they get to this point. Since I did not hear anything about them until now I can't try to resolve them. If you have a complaint about one of the camphosts, Rangers or anything else we need to know that before you leave the park. I can be contacted at anytime day or night, my phone number is on the bulletin boards in both parks or you can come by the visitor center during office hours or call 9187565971 for help. I would also like to know what campgrounds you were in during your stay and if you have names of the people you were in contact with at that time. Thank You Roger Wyrick


From Rose on 03/30/11

The camphost was very very rude and I know it was due to the park ranger that is suppose to keep everyone safe, but all he wanted to do was hand out tickets & warnings. This is suppose to be a fun place to be according to Oklahoma Travler Magizine I have sent a message to them along with my 21 other friends that camped with me that Okmulgee Lake would have been more fun if out of town people were more accepted. Makes me wonder if the townspeople are accepted too. One of them lives in Okmulgee and complained about the rudeness of it all. I would be ashamed to recommend this park to ANYONE.


From Jen on 03/28/11

I will not be back EVER!!!! The camp host is Rude.If you are not in with the click...watch out for the Park Ranger he will so up.The camp hosts like to use him alot never had a problem like that EVER anywhere I have went but I got back home and started talking to friends and they said the same thing they don't like going out there either.


From Holly on 03/09/11

It's been a couple of years since our family has stayed at Okmulgee, but we loved it there. The scenery is beautiful, and we enjoyed the hiking trails. I heard the playground has been updated, which is wonderful since the one in place when we were there needed some work. Can't wait to stay again.


From Carolyn & Ralph on 12/05/10

No complaints from the Yagers, we really miss all of you, and all our best wishes for 2011.


From Roger Wyrick on 11/23/10

I am sorry that you were disappointed with your stay at Okmulgee State Park during the Halloween event but we had several other areas for your camping pleasure, one as far as 3 miles away from the noise. We did not require that you decorate your site but would certainly appreciate it, or allow someone else to stay in the area that wanted to. We had the vehicles removed from the area so that people could move more freely around the area without having to negotiate more obstacles than necessary. Please feel free to contact me at the park office 9187565971. Roger Wyrick Park Manger


From Melanie on 11/05/10

We were very disappointed in this park. We were there over Halloween. No one told us that the trick or treating was for the ENTIRE town! It was so noisy, and there were people everywhere! We were also told that if we didn't decorate our campsite, we couldn't camp there, and we were made to move our vehicle away from our campsite. I wonder, had anyone hit our new truck, would the park have paid for the damage? We WILL NOT be going back to this park.


From melissa on 05/25/10

Nice Park. Lots of great spots to camp and enjoy the lake.


From mike on 03/25/10

decent pretty park just wish the people that lived around the area were not so trashy. i always have to pick up bag fulls of beer bottles,cans and general trash when i go hiking. irritating litter bugs, they have no idea of a treasure they have.


From Ashley on 03/10/10

Not what i was looking for, the scenery wasn't quite right for me
