Roman Nose State Park features 11 cabins and a beautiful lodge.  The 22-room lodge, originally constructed in 1956, has been completely renovated to reflect the natural landscape of the area.  The reconstruction emphasizes the lodge's original mid-century design, while beautifully updating the look to today's modern standards.  The newly decorated rooms feature large showers, comfy beds, contemporary furnishings with a nod to mid-century design and large flat-screen televisions.  A restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner is located within the lodge.  Use the green 'Book Now' button above to make cabin or lodge reservations.

Roman Nose State Park offers many breathtaking views of the canyon, gypsum rock cliffs and is home to three natural springs.  Group camps and picnic areas are located throughout the park. Camping is available at one of the 12 full hookup RV sites, 35 sites with water and electric or 33 tent sites. All campsites are available on a first come, first serve basis. The area also offers excellent opportunities for fall foliage and wildlife viewing. Teepee rentals are available from April through October.  Group rates are also available.

Robert, typically the pool opens Memorial Day weekend, but your best bet will be to call the park staff at 580-623-7281 for the most up-to-date information. Thank you for using TravelOK.com!

4th of July - Does the park have a firework show?

Dena, the teepee rentals sleep four adults comfortably and are $25 per night. They are stationary and come with both a fire ring and outdoor grill.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call the park office at 580-623-7281. Thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From Dena Wooden on 05/10/15

How many people can sleep in a teepee and can those be used on a campsite with an outdoor grill? Also, is there a list of other rental prices for activities such as horseback riding, canoeing, etc?


From TravelOK.com Staff on 05/07/15

Stephie, teepee rentals are $25 per night, and availability and reservations can be made by calling either 800-892-8690 or 580-623-7281. Best wishes and thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From stephieglass2@gmail.com on 05/06/15

looking at pricing but found nothing on the tepe rental for camping


From TravelOK.com Staff on 04/29/15

Armando, nope, there are no entrance fees at Roman Nose State Park! The only costs will be camping, cabins, lodge rooms, golf course, horseback rides, the restaurant, etc. Have a great trip and thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From Armando on 04/29/15

Is there a fee aside from the camping fee that we need to be aware of, such as entrance fees or anything similar?


From TravelOK.com Staff on 04/27/15

Monica, there is no swimming allowed in Lake Watonga. However, the park has two pools: a lodge pool and a park pool, both of which are open during the summer. The lodge pool is open only for lodge and cabin guests, while the park pool is open to the public. If you have any questions, please give the park a call at 580-623-7281. Best wishes and thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From monica on 04/27/15

Is swimming allowed in the lake?


From John on 04/17/15

Thanks for clarifying the issue with open/conceal carry handgun license, I was confused by a previous post Jacob, possessing or carrying a weapon on your person is prohibited in all Oklahoma state parks. Again, thank you for clarifying my original post. My family can not wait until we get back to Roman Nose SP and enjoy the hiking trails, fishing and camping.


From TravelOK.com Staff on 04/16/15

John, Oklahoma State Parks, in conformance with state law, permits lawful concealed and open carry within the state park system. The only limitation under the law is that a firearm is not allowed for carry within any building where state business is conducted, which would include state park offices, visitor centers, golf course pro shops, lodges or nature centers. We hope this clears up any confusion! Have a great day and thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From TravelOK.com Staff on 04/16/15

John, the tent sites do not have any hookups. However, you are more than welcome to set your tent up on an RV site, but please keep in mind that you'll be paying for the site and not the sleeping unit. For more information, check with the park staff at 580-623-7281. Happy camping and thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From John on 04/16/15

I was reading a comment posted below regarding weapons being prohibited in all OK state parks. My question is, does that include handgun license holders? I believe OK Title 21 1277 B lists a park, among other areas, as not a prohibited place. I have always loved camping at Roman Nose with my family, however I conceal carry for their protection. I have concealed carry in the past at Roman Nose, without incident from the Park Rangers.


From John on 04/16/15

do the tent sites have power outlets?


From TravelOK.com Staff on 04/13/15

Jacob, possessing or carrying a weapon on your person is prohibited in all Oklahoma state parks. For the complete list of weapon rules, please Google oar.state.ok.us 725:30-4-4, or call the park office at 580-623-7281. Thank you for using TravelOK.com!

From TravelOK.com Staff on 04/07/15

Adrienne, at this time only cabins, lodge rooms and RV sites can be booked online at Roman Nose State Park. To book a teepee, you'll need to call the park office at 580-623-7281. Tent sites are available on a first come, first serve basis. However, you are more than welcome to reserve an RV site for your tent. Please keep in mind that you'll be paying for the site and not the sleeping unit, so it will range from $20-$28 depending on the site you choose. Have a great day and thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From Adrienne on 03/31/15

I am wanting to book a campsite or a teepee but all I can find is a way to book lodging and rvs. Thanks.


From Tara Tucker on 03/21/15

We went hiking and started late in the afternoon. After leaving Inspiration Point and ending up on the Switchback Trail, we could not determine where we were based on the map and lack of markers along the trails. The sun was setting quickly. Thankfully, we were able to get cell service on top of one of the canyons. We called the park ranger for help and after describing landmarks he knew exactly where we were, we waved our flashlights, and he picked us promptly and drove us back to our van at the Cedar Cove trail head. He was very kind and we were grateful for his service. Thanks, again, Gaylen Oppel, from the Tucker family!


From TravelOK.com Staff on 03/19/15

From Stephanie Spencer on 03/16/15

We recently went to Roman Nose State Park. We had a great time except for an incident that involved a park ranger. We were arriving Friday, and were completely lost and couldn't find our group. We have a 34ft rv so turning around was a bit tricky. We flagged the park ranger down and he reluctantly told us how to find our park. My husband thought he was going the right way but happened to go to an authorized person only place and we were turning around when the same park ranger pulled up beside us jumped out of his truck and started chewing us out. He was rude, belligerent, and down right mean. It wasn't until I got my phone out and started acting like I was filming him did he change his tone and started talking like a normal person. I totally understand that he has to be a certain way because he is doing his job but the comments he made were absolutly rude and uncalled for. We weren't trying to cause any problems nor upset anyone. Not a place I will recommend to anyone. I do have the park ranger's name and what was said to us if anyone would like to contact me! He really needs to rethink the way he approaches people if you want repect then maybe you should give it! Shame on you!


From Lyn Grubb on 03/16/15

Jeff, sounds like you're in for a great weekend! Though we try to list everything we know about on this site, some things you and your daughter might enjoy include miniature golf, horseback rides, paddleboat rides and hiking. If you do go hiking, try to spot 'Big Spring,' which is one of the hidden gems within the park. You can see it in picture 72 of the slideshow above. The park also offers teepee rentals, which your daughter might enjoy seeing. For more insights, please ask the park staff when you check in or call 580-623-7281.

Looking to do some camping and fishing early July and roman nose came highly recommended in places to camp. What fish beside trout reside in the lakes?


From TravelOK.com Staff on 06/25/14

Valerie, we're sorry that you feel misled. The activities that you mention are available through a lease concessionaire, not the park itself, so we do not have control of the hours. We do list the hours over on the Roman Nose General Store & Stables page and mention that some activities are only available seasonally under the hours tab on this page. We assure you there is still plenty to do at the park and hope you have a great trip! Best wishes and thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From Valerie H. on 06/25/14

I feel your website is very misleading. Many of the fun activities listed are only available on certain days of the week. My family would never have booked our days there had we known that mini-golf, horseback riding, the paddle boats, and the bikes were not available every day. We are beyond disappointed and discouraged.


From TravelOK.com Staff on 06/25/14

Richelle, yes to both! You can see the park map, which shows the location of both pools by clicking on 'Roman Nose State Park Map' on the right side of this page under 'More Information.' To see pricing for the horseback rides, visit the page that says 'Roman Nose General Store & Stables' under 'See Related Listings' on the upper right side of the page.

If you are staying in a tent site, do you still have access to the swimming pool?

Tiana, this is the official website for Roman Nose State Park. They do have a separate booking page for the cabins and lodge rooms, which you can see by clicking on the green button at the top of this page. The park also has a Facebook page, which you can see by clicking the icon on the right side of this page. Have a great day and thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From Tiana on 06/06/14

What is the website address?


From TravelOK.com Staff on 06/05/14

Paul, thanks for your comment. We have removed the mention of military discounts, so we won't have any confusion in the future. At this time, the only discounts available are for campers 62 and older and the fully disabled. We do occasionally run specials for military members, so please check back on this page in the future! We hope you enjoyed your stay at Roman Nose State Park, and thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From Paul on 06/05/14

The website states you have a military discount. I just paid for 5 nights in an RV spot and the ladies at the lodge said that it does not apply to camping. I reccomend you change your website to reflect that.


From TravelOK.com Staff on 06/03/14

Jason, the in-room fireplaces in the cabins are wood burning. For $5, a ranger will bring you a bundle of six to seven pieces of cut firewood, or you are more than welcome to bring your own. If you have any questions, please call the park office at 580-623-7281. Have a great day and thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From Jason on 06/02/14

Do the in-room fireplaces use wood or are they propane/natural gas? If they are wood burning, do you have firewood available?


From owner on 06/02/14

Hello Kevin, we have two backcounty camping sites. They are available by reservation only. They are $17 a night and do require a hiking approach. We would be happy to discuss more details about the sites and make a reservation for you. You can reach us at 1-800-892-8690, ask for a transfer to the park rangers office. We appreciate your interest and thank you so much for using TravelOK.com


From KEVIN on 05/30/14

YOU STILL HAVE THE BACK COUNTRY CAMPING?


From TravelOK.com Staff on 05/20/14

Kristine, it's difficult to say how fast the tent sites will fill up, because the weather plays such a factor in how many people turn out for Memorial Day weekend. Right now, with the chance of rain in the forecast, it may keep some people from tent camping. However, on a typical Memorial Day weekend, the tent sites usually fill up on Thursday and RV sites fill up on Wednesday. Your best bet would be to call the Roman Nose State Park office at 580-623-7281 and speak to the staff. They will be able to give you more information on what area will be best for you. Also, the teepees are able to be reserved, but they have already been booked for this weekend. Have a great day and thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From Kristine on 05/20/14

I was wondering how fast the tent sites fill up memorial day weekend? I was looking to get a spot for Saturday and Sunday, but live fairly close and would be willing to go there Friday and pay for 3 days to ensure we get a spot for the weekend. Is there any tent sites that would be better for a family with younger children? or closer to the lake for fishing? I know this might be a stupid question, but is there any tent sites that have electric use or close by? We are planning on bringing an air mattress and it only has an electric pump, but if not we would just plan accordingly. Also I was reading they have tee pee rentals, can you reserve them or are they first come first serve also? If you can reserve are any available this weekend? Thank you for any information you can offer, I'm hoping all goes well and we will be camping this weekend at Roman Nose State Park.


From TravelOK.com Staff on 05/05/14

Mike, thanks for your comment, but we think there must have been a misunderstanding. Henry Roman Nose, whom this state park is named after, was one of 44 chiefs of the Southern Cheyenne Tribe. He was a council chief from 1897 until his death in 1917. As a young man, Roman Nose was a warrior. During the 1870s he joined others of his tribe in fighting to preserve his way of life. In March 1875, Roman Nose was one of 72 Plains Indians who surrendered to the US military. He was imprisoned and served a three year sentence at St. Augustine, Florida. Upon returning to Oklahoma, Roman Nose and his family made their home on their allotment, within the present-day state park. There was another Roman Nose, a warrior of the Northern Cheyenne Tribe, who died in the battle of Beecher Island, in present day Colorado. Best wishes and thank you for using TravelOK.com!

How I can get rent ?


From Mike Turvey on 05/04/14

You indicate that Roman Nose State Park is named after a Cheyenne chief. Roman Nose refused his tribe's attempts to make him a chief. He was a warrior in the tradition of Crazy Horse, a Sioux warrior. He was respected as such, and I suggest you could at least show him the respect of correctly describing who he was in your advertising.

Hi, Is there a phone number or email address to contact the store in the park where they rent the kayaks? Thanks.


From Mike on 04/04/14

We went to Roman Nose this last weekend. Over all a very nice experience. A few things. One, the park ranger was very nice and incredibly helpful. Second, this weekend things were fairly sparse. I would guess less than half the camp ground was filled. Personally, we decided we won't go there on busy weekends because the sites are really stacked on top of each other. So, in the off season it is great but during the busy time, I would avoid if you like space.


From TravelOK.com Staff on 03/31/14

Hello! I am thinking about visiting Roman Nose, and I was wondering if dogs were allowed on the outside patio of the restaurant at the lodge?


From Alisha on 03/07/14

Fun place to ride horses, but not as horse friendly as other parks. They only have few 'equestrian campsites' with hookups, and 2-3 pens. We would visit this park more often to ride if they allowed reservations to be made. Not cool if you haul your horses up there and campsites full of regular rvs. Would be nice if there was picket poles too, but heaven forbid the horses stay near the trailers longer then 5-10 min! Stables manager is extremely helpful, but it seems her hands are tied when trying to help horse people make our stay easier. Just not a very horse friendly park, but maybe future will get better??


From Sheila on 02/16/14

We enjoyed our weekend at Roman Nose. The staff was very friendly. The only suggestion we have is that more signs be put on the trails. We ended up hiking four hours because we could not find our way back to the lodge. We met several other couples who were lost as well. We finally met up with a couple who had a Verizon phone that located us and gave directions back the lodge. PLEASE mark the trails with signs telling hikers how to get back to the lodge. Thank you.

From TravelOK.com Staff on 10/16/13

Mary, the Mesa Loop Trail and Lakeshore Loop Trails are both multi-purpose trails where horses are allowed. There are overnight horse pens near the Bitter Creek RV Campground with additional and RV sites nearby, though a negative Coggins report must be presented before unloading horses. You are welcome to bring your own horses or take a guided one or two hour trail ride on a rented horse from Roman Nose Stables. The stables are open seasonally, so please call to confirm hours before you go. Their number is 580-623-7750. Best wishes and thank you for using TravelOK.com!

I wanted to let you know that my family had a wonderful time at Roman Nose this past weekend. Even the rain of Friday night was a welcome respite from work.

From Steve Love on 08/26/13

Stayed in the cabins and they were not up to par. Bathrooms were dirty, doors didn't close, AC was so cold you froze. The park ranger was WAY LESS than friendly and even threatened to come write me a ticket if he found out my side lights were not legal after a 30 minute period of trying to get them turned off. It will be a long long time before I will return to this place for a vacation.


From sll on 08/26/13

We stayed in the cabins and they were a little bit disgusting in the bathrooms. They showers were dirty and then the door to the bathroom would not close all the way.

I've heard great things about this park. Beautiful and wonderful weather this past weekend but you might consider updating signs. We spent a good part of the weekend looking for things. Thankfully 3 very polite teenagers helped us and our camping neighbors had been there before and helped us. An employee and a ranger were NOT too friendly. Drive around to each part of the park as if you haven't been there before............most things are not clearly marked and some are not marked at all.

Hi Bob.... We do have several sites that are in the shade but as you can imagine they are at a premium right now. Its best to get here mid-week to give yourself a chance at getting a shady spot. You can always call the lodge office to ask about our RV occupancy percentage. If we are over 30-45% most of the shady spots are probably taken. 1-800-892-8690

From owner on 06/27/13

Hi Angelo! The park never closes. Roman Nose does have a healthy population of rattlesnakes. To give yourself the best chances of seeing one just drive around the park and look for one crossing the road. Living and working here I still only see about one a week driving through the park. If you choose to get out on the trail you will cover less ground and you do need to watch each step carefully. Tarantulas on the other hand are out all over the place right now and you are almost certain to see several on an evening drive. Please remember that both are protected in the park and that the rattlesnake is very dangerous. Keep your distance and we hope you have good luck with your search.


From Angelo on 06/27/13

Hello! Just wondering what your hours are during the week. I am trying to look for rattlesnakes and have heard that there are a lot of snakes at Roman Nose. Is this correct? Do you think I would have a good chance at seeing some rattlesnakes if I were to come out one evening? Where would be a good place to look? Thanks!

I was wondering what the state park’s rules are concerning open/conceal carry of a handgun? I know that the law prohibits carrying in government buildings, or where government employees’ work, but I wasn’t sure about in the general campgrounds. I know that some state parks also have Corps of Engineer property, which being federal property, is not covered under state law. Thank you very much.

When I was a little kid 1962 we would go to a creek in the park and pick watercress. My mom would bring bread & butter and we Would eat the best watercress sandwichs in the world. Over 50 years later I can still taste them sitting in the shade beside that beautiful stream.

John..... We are glad you and your family had such a great time. It was a great weekend to be out. If you are feeling real adventerous you should come back and check out one of our backcountry camp sites. I would suggest "creekside perch". Its a relatively short hike in and a really cool experience. Thanks for visiting Roman Nose.....

From TravelOK.com Staff on 04/08/13

Karen, of course families are welcome at all of Oklahoma's state parks! We're very sorry that the booking system left so much to be desired. We've found that it is best to select your dates and leave the occupancy at 1 adult. That will pull up all the cabins and rooms available where you can see how many beds are offered. The teepees are not able to be reserved through our booking system. For the most up-to-date information on availability, please call the park directly at 800-892-8690 or email romannoselodge@oklahomaresorts.com.


From Karen on 04/06/13

Your online booking leaves much to be desired. There is no place to see what you are booking cabin or room or teepee and though the calendar says the date is open when you choose the day it says it is not. It also won't let you book 2 adults and 2 children. Families aren't welcome? Am I missing something?


From Terrie Hilburn on 04/01/13

please send info


From TravelOK.com Staff on 03/11/13

Scott, that sounds like a great idea! All Oklahoma state parks are on a set rate scale of $23 a night for full hookup sites. An additional fee of $5 per night may apply for premium waterfront sites. The Roman Nose State Park Golf Course is open and you can book a tee time online. Fishing is great at Lake Watonga, and you can see a detailed map of the lake-including fishing spots-by clicking on the Lake Watonga link at the top right side of the page. Best wishes and thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From Scott on 03/09/13

We just purchased a camping trailer and wanted to make our first trip to Roman Nose. What is the rate of the full hook up RVsites near the water? Is the golf Course still open? How about a place to fish?


From owner on 02/27/13

Allen. Roman Nose Has taken a good hit from this winter storm and power was restored last night. The park and lodge are still without water and the lodge will remain closed until water systems can be restored. The lodge was in partial operation for a short time today as managers tried to return calls. Tomorrow the regular front desk operations will be back in place at the lodge office and you will be able to get more information directly from the park at that time. Please give us a call at Roman Nose Lodge tomorrow for the most up to date information. 1-800-892-2538


From Allen Mulkey on 02/27/13

I have a reservation to stay at Roman Nose State Park Lodge this Saturday. I have been trying to get info on whether or not the park is accessible after the snowstorm. Also how much snow might still be on the ground since I was planning on hiking. I have called them several times and emailed with no response. Just needing some info so I can decide what to do. Thank You!


From TravelOK.com Staff on 02/25/13

Do you have a club room that could be used for a RV club of 13-15 rigs. If so, what would be the cost. We are all retirees. No children. Non smoking, etc.


From TravelOK.com Staff on 08/27/12

Daina, per the Blaine County Commissioner Burn Ban Resolution, charcoal, propane and natural gas grills are permitted as long as you are cooking on a non-flammable surface and are at least five feet away from flammable vegetation. As far as swimming, cabin and lodge guests are welcome to use the lodge pool at no charge, though the pool will close after Labor Day weekend. Unfortunately, there is no swimming area on Lake Watonga. If you have any other questions, we would encourage you to speak with the park staff by calling one of the numbers above. Happy camping and thank you for visiting TravelOK.com!


From Daina on 08/25/12

Also, the Watonga Lake listing mentioned a playground at this state park. If there is one, it would be helpful to list that on the state park's description and include a photo.


From Daina on 08/25/12

Is charcoal grilling on the campsite grills permitted during the burn ban? If I opted to stay in a cabin to have access to the swimming pool that will be open Labor Day weekend, is there a charge for that pool? Is there a swim area on the lake?


From TravelOK.com Staff on 08/20/12

Bill, pets are allowed in two of the park's 11 cabins, so please let the staff know that you will be bringing along your furry friend when you call to make reservations. There is also an additional fee of $10 per night. Have a great time at Roman Nose State Park and thank you for using TravelOK.com!

Ellen, according to the Roman Nose State Park FAQs document in the top right corner of this page, boats for fishing are allowed on the lake as long as they are a 'no wake' boat. Any boat on the lake also has to be a registered vehicle with proper safety equipment. If you have any other questions, we would encourage you to speak with the park staff by phone or email and they'd be happy to assist you in planning your visit to Roman Nose State Park. Happy fishing and thank you for visiting TravelOK.com.

From ellen on 07/02/12

We have an inflatable K-Boat, a cross between a Kayak and a Canoe, with a trolling motor. Would we be allowed to use it in the lakes for fishing? Also, are there places to fish from the bank? Thanks.

Thank you for using TravelOK.com and have a fun visit to Roman Nose State Park.


From Chance Branson on 06/25/12

Is it possible to reserve a camp site in advance? if so where could I do this.


From Vickie Fergason on 06/25/12

We hadn't been to the park for a couple of years and when we were looking for a place to take my two young granddaughters swimming, thought it would be a good place to spend the day. So we drove 50 miles to find out that the pool wasn't open. We enjoyed the rest of the park but had really looked forward to cooling off at the pool and the girls were so disappointed because that was their big thing and it was really hot. Got some really good pictures but will definitely call before we make a trip for a specific activity.


From TravelOK.com Staff on 06/22/12

Stephanie, the swimming pool is closed for repairs right now, we apologize for the inconvenience. Expected to open within the next week to ten days, adults 13 years and older can swim for 5.00, children 13 years and younger can swim for 4.00 and children under the age of two are free. Give the park a call before you head out and we hope you enjoy your visit to Roman Nose State Park very soon.


From Stephanie on 06/22/12

How much does it cost to go swimming at the pool in the park? Thank you!


From TravelOK.com Staff on 06/18/12

Natalie, yes dogs are welcome in Roman Nose State Park as long as they are kept on a leash, never left unattended and cleaned up after during their visit. For more information about which trails would be the most dog-friendly, give the park a call or send an email and speak to the park naturalist, he'd be a great help in that area. Enjoy your visit to Roman Nose State Park and thank you for using TravelOK.com.


From natalie on 06/15/12

Is it ok to bring your dog on a hike? If so are there certain trails you would recommend over others?


From TravelOK.com Staff on 06/13/12

Heather, that is a great question! Yes, you may bring your own propane grill to the park but please check with the park office for any current burn ban regulations before using the grill in the park or maybe even before you visit. We appreciate your business at Roman Nose State Park and thank you for using TravelOK.com.


From Heather on 06/13/12

Can u being your own propane grill to the park?


From owner on 05/21/12

You've found them Tanna! We have three tipi campsites which are available from April through October. The fee for each of these sites is $25 per night. You can make a reservation by calling the Lodge office at 800.892.8690. When not reserved, these sites are available on a first-come, first-served basis.


From tanna on 05/19/12

a month to 6weeks ago on discover Oklahoma there was something simular to a teepee that you could rent didn,t catch where just walked in at the end of show. Any ideas where this was?


From owner on 05/11/12

Missy, tent camping is $12 per night. Pack Saddle Campground is located along Bitter Creek near the center of the park. It's a great spot for a shady, quiet getaway. Beaver Dam and Muffler Gap Campgrounds are perfect jumping-off points for many of the park's activities. They are located along the shore of Lake Boecher, near the General Store and the Two Lakes Trailhead. There is also a comfort station with showers located in this area. Or for a truly unique camping experience you can also opt for a stay in a tipi (which is $25 per night, available from April through October).


From missy on 05/10/12

can someone tell me how much it is to rent a tent site and which area is best?thank you


From owner on 04/27/12

Judy, our most popular RV sites are in the Two Lakes Campground. It has 8 modern sites with water, sewer, and 50 amp electric service (one of these is an ADA site) and one tent site. This campground is centrally located with easy access to several great fishing spots, a trailhead for hiking or mountain biking, and the Roman Nose General Store which hosts many of the park's seasonal activities and features a cafe. Our largest campground is Canyon Vista which has 4 modern sites, 3 tent sites, and 19 semi-modern sites with water and either 30 or 50 amp electric. The adjacent Cedar Cove Campground is well shaded and has 7 semi-modern sites with 30 amp electric and 3 tent sites. The Bitter Creek Campground, located near the cabins, has 5 semi-modern sites with water and 50 amp elecrtic; one of which is an ADA site.


From Judy B. on 04/23/12

Can anyone tell me about the RV camping areas? And which is best? I have never been to this Roman Nose State Park... Thank you, Judy B.


From Jennifer W. on 02/15/12

We had a fabulous time. The staff is very friendly, the food is very good and reasonably priced. We loved the rooms. Everything is updated with lots of details. The beds are amazing with the mattresses and pillows being beyond comfortable. It's a great place to get away from the world and with so few rooms it doesn't have the traffic of a big hotel. It truly feels as though you are in your own private lodge away from the frantic world. This is a five star for comfort.


From Angela Rawlings on 01/18/12

My family stays @ Roman Nose a couple times a year!! We love the beauty of the park,there is never a shortage of things to do or see!!! We're planing a cabin stay in just a couple of weeks!!! See you soon!


From Vanessa on 12/30/11

My husband, 4 year old son and I spent one night in one of the duplex cabins. We enjoyed having a nice meal at the lodge before retreating to the more rustic setting of the cabin. It was great for our little family, very peaceful place. The inside of our cabin was very cutely decorated and was clean. I initially wanted to stay in a lodge room since they were renovated but chose the rustic setting of the cabin instead. We will definitely make this a getaway habit from OKC.


From TravelOK.com Staff on 08/31/11

Mark, the cabins were re-furnished just a couple of years ago and looked really nice! Visit the booking web site link above and you can see a couple of cabin photos and check available dates and prices. Have a great time at Roman Nose State Park and thank you for using TravelOK.com.


From Mark on 08/31/11

We're planning a fall trip to Roman Nose and can't decide where to stay. The lodge renovation looks great! Wondering if the cabins have been renovated as well? If so, could you send me some photos?


From TravelOK.com Staff on 08/25/11

Jamie, the information that you received from the park is correct. Campsites for all state parks are first come, first served. Thank you for using TravelOK.com and have a great time at Roman Nose State Park.

Is there a way to rent a campsite for a travel trailer in advance. I called the number on the website and was told it was first come, first serve.


From Emalee Johnson on 08/02/11

We enjoyed a family dinner at the lodge last night. The food and service were top notch! There were seven of us, including my 91 year old mother-in-law and father-in-law. The server and kitchen made the slight menu accommodation that gave them meals that were perfect for them. The manager of the hotel also gave us a tour of one of the guest rooms. That delighted our parents. It was a wonderful evening and the kind treatment of a couple of Oklahoma's most wonderful senior citizens was very much appreciated! Thank you, thank you!

From TravelOK.com Staff on 06/08/11

We are planning to visit this month the Roman Nose Park, for one day. I would truly appreciate if somebody could estimate for me what are the prices for renting a paddle boat and a mountain bike this season. Thanks in advance.


From Sharon on 06/01/11

We had RV's there Memorial Day wknd, going past horse stables, at very end right by the lake. Ppl were there for family reunion, they stayed up till 2 am yelling, drinking, laughing very loudly a couple nights. Made all of us crabby for our stay. Also, dogs barking early in the morning. We left Sun instead of Mon. Otherwise, great place and lots to do there.


From owner on 05/14/11

Sharon, we would love the chance to visit with you when you come out to the park. We always enjoy hearing tales from that important time in the park's--and the nation's--history.


From Jack Parker on 05/10/11

I grew up in western Oklahoma, and I can tell you Roman Nose is a fine, interesting and beautiful place. If your biggest gripe is about the outdoor restrooms not smelling like roses, or some idiot among us who would dump on this land, you should stay at the lodge where all amenities are available. For anyone considering a visit to this park, I would highly recommend it and feel confident you will enjoy this unique get-away!


From Sharon J Taylor on 05/07/11

I have not been yet, but my dad was a part of the CCC Company that help build the structures. I can't wait to see it.


From Megan on 04/25/11

My husband and I camp here every year in mid may. We stay in the teepees and have never had a bad experience. It is our favorite place to camp because it is close to the city, the people are friendly and it's quiet and relaxing and the terrain is beautiful. I don't understand all the bad comments. It's a state park not an amusement park, you should visit to get closer to nature not to be entertained. And I'm not sure the bathrooms at any campground would be pristine. I do not go expecting that. I love Roman Nose


From Susan Hendricks on 12/22/10

Roman Nose State Park has beautifully updated rooms and cabins with wheel chair accessibility. I was very pleased!


From TravelOK.com Staff on 10/21/10

Scott, tent camping is generally first come first served in all state parks. You might want to call the park for more details or special arrangements, if available. Thank you for using TravelOK.com and have a great time at Roman Nose State Park.

From stephanie stephens on 09/28/10

i just spent the weekend out there for the semiannual horseback trail ride. the fundraiser for the hospital. the scenery was beautiful. it's been a while since i've seen so much open space, i live in OKC. even tho we camped on the Wolfe ranch we did use the showers in the park's camp area. the bathrooms are ok but i wish there had been hot water. lol overall i thought it was great!


From phoebe henry on 09/24/10

wow nasty!!!!!!!! dont go here! i used to love camping here but it got nasty! i was walking with my dog by the big springs and went over by the pool looking down at the creek it smelt like something was dead! i told my husband to come see what that smell was because it was bothering me . we looked down by the creek and someone dump sewage from there rv it was all in the leafs of the trees and the ground by the creek and to top it off me and my dog was standing in it and i thought it was mud, but after looking at it because i couldnt believe it i saw toilet paper pieces everywhere in it! this place needs to be shut down! i hope the kids in the canoes that were splashing each other dont get sick from that!


From KD on 09/08/10

Stayed in the group camp for a family reunion. Bathrooms were disgusting. I can't believe they were not cleaned before we came. Kitchen in the dining hall was not as clean as we would have liked, but it was great in preparing meals. Staff was friendly, but booking process slightly unprofessional. Lots of activities available - except pool was not open on Saturday as promised.


From Kenneth B. on 08/02/10

The golf course, while in average shape most of the year is a must play for any Oklahoman. It is by far... repeating for effect here... BY FAR... the most unique golf course I've ever played. The cabins are above average by State Park standards although generally most of the State Parks are in need of update. Looking forward to the Lodge reopening in October!!!


From Kelli on 06/28/10

anothr one close to home


From melinda on 06/05/10

Not sure how the previous reviewer had such a bad experience? We all had a great time doing all the family activities the park has to offer other than the swimming pool-like riding bikes, hiking, paddle boating, canoeing, mini golfing, fishing. And it is only a little over an hour's drive from OKC so I would recommend it as a day trip or an overnight camping trip.


From Jeania on 05/31/10

This is absolutly the worst place to take your family for a nice weekend. Pool did not open until Sunday, bathrooms were disgusting even by public restroom standards, rudeness of fellow campers was unbelievable, I will take my family else where for our next camping adventure.


From Tabitha T. on 05/30/10

Roman Nose is a great place for all family members. The best part I think is the public pool. It is the best vacation place i've ever been .


From Trisha P on 03/26/10

My favorite spot is the big spring area, which is down by the public swimming pool. It's a fantastic picnic area with lots of shade, great for activities with kids. They have a little bit of open area good for playing ball, and they have a small playset with swings and a slide. There is a stream system and natural pond there that is so beautiful and so fun for the kids to play in. The big spring itself is basically a cave where water is gushing out from underground in the form of a small waterfall. It's very cool, put it on your list to check out during a visit. Watch out for poison ivy and get ready - that water is COLD! This spot is very easy to miss if you're not familiar with the area. Ask a local if you can't find it.


From Christopher Twyman on 01/06/10

You would never guess there's so much to do at Roman Nose. Even though you could drive straight through the park in 5 minutes, if you take the time to explore you can easily spend an afternoon or a weekend and still be finding new things on your next visit. I love all the classic CCC architecture and the diversity of terrain and wildlife on the trails.
