Clayton Lake State Park, located in southeastern Oklahoma's Kiamichi Mountains, features 500 acres of lodging, fishing, boating, hiking and more. Wind your way through the hardwood forest's beautiful scenery and find what adventure and activities await you in this state park.

Lodging at the park, located just five miles south of Clayton, includes 30 reservable RV sites, 60 first come, first serve tent sites spread out between three camping areas, primitive cabins and two-bedroom cabins to fit your family's needs. Bring your dog along to stay in a spacious two-bedroom cabin that requires no additional pet fee. Clayton Lake State Park also offers five picnic pavilions, two boat ramps and four comfort stations with hot showers.

If you're looking for a restful getaway, look no further. The 80-acre lake is open to fishermen and boaters, but no watersports are allowed. In addition to a lighted boat and ADA accessible fishing dock, the park also has a swimming beach and playground. 

Take a stroll along the water's edge, wade through the rushing waterfalls, or bring a kayak to cross the lake's still water. With a wide variety of trees lining the water's edge, the beautiful foliage offers outdoor enthusiasts the chance to reconnect with nature along the park's hiking trails.

Nearby, guests can visit the Ouachita National Forest, Sardis Lake or the Choctaw National Capital Museum.
