Campsite Rate Increase
Campsite Rate Increase

The Oklahoma Tourism and Recreation Department - Division of State Parks, is announcing an increase to the cost of the basic rate of a campsite beginning August 15, 2016. Previously the base cost of an tent campsite was $12 per night per site. The basic rate will increase to $14 per site per night. Utility rates will remain unchanged.

"The fee increase is necessary due to the current cost of operating and maintaining the campgrounds in the state parks," explained Director Kris Marek. "Our goal is to continue to offer Oklahoma State Parks to our visitors as a great resource for recreation in a natural setting."
