Overall Rating:

This is a "fishing lake" with campsites. no hookups, but plenty of lake view. Picnic tables, not at all sites. sites were good for smaller units, but a couple big spots were found on the loop across the opposite side of the little dam. There is no surface at the campsites that has not been affected by ruts from pervious rains (at this time). The dirt roads to each side have plenty of ruts. No gravel. Neighborhoods flank the lake and there is three entrances to the park so the towns folk use them to go through to homes and sometimes just quick cut through. We didn't stay in the designated campsites due to the above mentioned, so we stayed in the day use area hugging the edge of the grassy area. No problem with that if you don't block the road. Some residents have loud trucks or cars and go through. A very friendly couple walking their dogs stopped to talk to us and even extended an open invitation to hook up at their house should we make another visit. Water foul, jumping fish (you need a license to fish) dog walkers and nearby school phys ed joggers. Shade trees and green vegetation to walk on. It was pleasant and we stayed 3 nights then went to the City Park which is also free (donations welcomed). Medicine Lodge has a couple of gas stations, 1 grocery store (we didn't hate) with laundry mat and car wash all in one. A post office and Library (with wifi and great staff) and old town has a few shops and a pharmacy. We would use the park as a 1 maybe 2 night stay, but to fish grab a campsite. We camped at Barber State Fishing Lake in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Go see the Stockade and Carrie Nation (all in one) in town off 160 $5 gets you in both. Seniors $4. Gift shop and stockade together. They are mostly self guide. Nice staff!
