Nice level sights. They had many sights right on Tenkiller lake. They had a playground and nice swim area for kids. We really enjoyed our stay. - okiecamper

Pricy for just a pull through 50a FHU site in a basic overnight campground. There were several long term RVs there in various conditions. One leg of AC power was 110v but never fell enough to have our EMS shut down power. The water supply leaked and maintenance came by to repair it. There's not many CGs to choose from in the area. Staff was nice. Our rooftop dish worked well as did the Verizon cell hotspot. It rained all night but we had no trouble getting out with our 2 wheel drive truck. - big greg

They are just a place to park your RV. They don't have any facilities. That being said, the site we stayed in was perfectly level. It had full hookups and 50 amp service. We had plenty of room for both slide-outs, and plenty of room for our 25 foot trailer and pickup. all sites are pull-through. They have planted trees but most are still small. We did have shade at our site. The sites are grass and gravel. That was nice for our dog. We have stayed there twice and will stay there again when we go that way. - jphillips

No longer accept Passport America, but gave us last year's rate. Pros: Very basic park, but convenient to Tahlequah, especially Cherokee Heritage Center. All pull through sites. Clean, helpful staff at gas station, grass nicely mowed and some shade, but still need some trimming.
Cons: No WiFi, no cable, no picnic tables - absolutely basic. - BandD

This state park is on a high peninsula sticking out into the lake. The park has a few shade trees but it is more exposed than not. We arrived in on a day that hit 92F and we baked. The wind was high and our trailer rocked and rolled with the blasts. There were wild fires south and west of us and the smoke was very thick so we didn't go out much. Overall it is a rather standard state park with spaces somewhat closer than I would like. There are some sites with sewer, and since we wanted to do laundry we took one, but they are immediately adjacent to the dump site which meant stink and a lot of traffic. One thing we did really enjoy was there was a spring eruption of migrating birds so we got to see a huge variety of birds in large flocks including northern flickers, woodpeckers, jays, chickadees, juncos, starlings, blackbirds, nuthatches and several other species. We stopped here to be close to the Cherokee Heritage Centre which is 15 miles away. We thoroughly enjoyed the Heritage Centre and the coincidence of the spring migration but otherwise there was nothing special or noteworthy about the park. Regarding service basically there is none. This is a "self serve" park. You arrive and there is no one there, no information at the gate and no directions on what to do. You find a site you like without a "reserved sign" on it and then you park. There are no additional services like firewood. Eventually the very nice and well informed ranger will find you so you can pay him. The ranger knew every local site and had lots of tips. - Judy Birchland

When we arrived, we could not find anyone to help us. All areas were closed except one, which had poor camping pads, water connections 20 feet away, uneven, and very close together. We decided to leave the same day. In my judgment, this CG is a disaster. - Jim Butler

This is a typical state operated park, clean and well maintained with plenty of room at each site. The campground is surrounded on three sides with water and the views are great. Fire rings, grills, and picnic tables at most sites. Friendly and helpful staff. - Dave Cole

Enjoyed the stay. Nice trails throughout the park. Nice level pad. Didn't use the bathroom or the shower at this location. - The_RV_CIO

Scenic place, campsites have plenty of room and are level. Lots of water surrounding many sites. We were only here for 2 nights. The golf course here was fun. Only negatives were the fire pit was full of ash, hadn't been cleaned out in awhile, and like quite a few of our experiences in Oklahoma SPs, the showers are sub par (not very clean). - Bob806

First off when making reservations the info stated full shaded site. They were not fully shaded and actually minimal shade. The restrooms and showers were full of bugs and spiders; they weren't dirty, just full of insects. The swimming beach was nothing but cockaburs to get to the water. The sites were concrete, but are not level, and they do have full hook ups. I certainly would't come back to the Choctaw area. - OklahomaCamper

This park is not to be confused with Western Hills Guest Ranch/Sequoyah Bay State Park that is also near Wagoner and on Lake Fort Gibson. We initially intended to stay here for two nights but the lake was 16 feet above normal and the lakeside sites were under water. There has been a lot of rain in this area recently; hopefully they will recover OK when the water recedes. The park has plenty of big beautiful trees and a lot of things to do and see. A very peaceful place to stay. Has very good TV reception via antenna. The restroom/showers were clean. I will definitely return in the future. - DavyD

We visited Strayhorn Landing after the season when it is "manned". We had a beautiful site up high overlooking the lake. Even though it was fall, the weather was great too. The site was plenty long for our 43' motorhome and room to park the Jeep in front.
The water connections were shared between two sites; we had a Y-splitter so used it so we could both have access to water. - pattic777

Campground on a peninsula overlooking Lake Tenkiller. Easy access to water. Sites are basic with water and electric. Some sites share water spigots. Fully tree lined asphalt access road and sites. Sites level with hookups correctly laid out for back-in parking. Strayhorn Marina close by as well as swimming beach, boat ramp for campers use, and no real strict parking so can have your boat or jet ski up near the RV. Restrooms with no a/c, but clean. Campground gate closes nightly 10:00 PM for security. Online reservation is the easiest way to secure a site. Reserved and first come sites available. No dog park. - drw-cpa

We stayed here in the off season, but it was still relatively crowded. They have a nice split of reservable and non-reservable sites, but in the summer I don't know if I would take the chance of driving in without a reservation. The non-reservable sites probably have better lake views (especially sunrise/sunset views, but some of them share water so be aware of that. The park was well mowed and as clean as can be expected for a lake campground (in our experience, many lake campers and boaters in this area are not great at cleaning up after themselves). We stayed at site 6 which was perfectly level and had a little shade but not much privacy. Tenkiller Lake is less muddy and red than a lot of Oklahoma lakes and there is quite a bit to do in the area. As always in Oklahoma, watch out for ticks! We will stay again, for sure. - wulfleton

We were there during the fall leaves changing colors and it was beautiful! The roads were paved as well as the pad. Pad was large and spacious with room for 40 ft DP and toad. Camphost were nice and friendly and helpful. Pad was level and had a great view of the lake. The park was clean and well kept. We will be back in the spring to stay again. - Ralph0808

Stayed for 3 nights to rest up during big road trip. Fun to watch the family lake festivities before July 4th holiday. Will stay again for rest between Springfield MO and Dallas TX. - Carl Lance 1995

The campground is clean and well maintained. The site had water and 30/50 amp service with a level concrete pad and asphalt drive. The view of the lake is nice and we enjoy the campground. Cell service for both AT&T and Verizon is good. - Ralph0808

The park was quiet and clean. We stayed in the Deer Run RV area in slot #7. We only required 1 level block to make the motorhome level. The area is older but the water, sewer and power all worked flawlessly. Spaces are close together. We were under power lines in this site but didn't hear any noise nor did we have any interference. There really is no cell service in this area. - The_RV_CIO

Showed up late on Thursday night and got setup in Deer Run #20. Fairly level site with very little leveling required. It is easy to see why this park has won many awards. You will have little to no AT&T cell service (No complaints here). Very clean park; the only complaint I had was the young park care takers started mowing about the time Friday evening when everyone was starting to sit outside. Electric and water were both very reliable. The Putt Putt golf was a good value at $3, but could use some updates. The pool looked nice, but didn't have a chance to try it out. We will stay again. - Back to the basics

Cypress Row CR19 - great downhill view of the lake from our front window. Our site was a bit damp from the previous night's rain, but without puddles. We parked on the leaf-covered site, on what might have been a bit of gravel - far from the next sites. Our well-pruned tree-lined site was almost level side to side, but the front of the trailer needed to be lifted - not a concern for us. Other sites appeared more level.
A few people were fishing off the dock, while we took a nice walk around the campground's 3 loops. The camp was quiet, nestled in the high-canopy trees.
As we were setting up camp, the hostess stopped to welcome us. She wouldn't let us stop to pay her, as she promised to stop by later. Having only one night to spend here, we left early, leaving payment at the host's camper door.
My Verizon did not work here - OK by me.
We would return. - AluminumCloud

Picnic tables are on the wrong side. Trees need to be trimmed, they will hit your trailer in many sites. Some sites are so close together you cannot pull out your awning without hitting the trailer next to you. Grass needs to be mowed. I tried calling the park office several times during a weekday, no one answers. - Ilona

Nicely maintained state park with reasonably clean restrooms and showers. Several different camping areas within the park - some with more services and higher cost than others. Premium sites are even more, and the quoted rate does not include a utility surcharge which can almost double your cost, in some cases. The park is surrounded by water but, unfortunately, except for a handful of places, you would hardly know it. The State has apparently decided to allow the foliage to grow wild along the shorelines, and in most places, it totally obscures the view. No water views from the campgrounds. Plenty of walking trails and a good place to visit if you bring a boat. Swimming, Frisbee golf, etc available. Very family friendly; pets OK. Bring bug spray - we were there in May and the ticks were horrible! - Rusty Tailpipe

Had reserved for Chicken Creek but got wrong directions off internet, so ended up at Tenkiller. At Tenkiller wanted to stay in water/electric only for one night. Ended up at Fox Squirrel Camp when couldn't find working electric and nearby water in that camp and got stung by wasp when lifting electric hookup box cover!! Fox Squirrel site was excellent with a grill and table and nearby clean restroom! - Ann_Dave

This park is located on the beautiful Fort Gibson Lake. The lake and Fort Gibson Dam are wonderful sites to see. The campground is very large, and has a swimming area marked off in the lake and several play things for young kids. There are two different sides that are separated by the marina, where you can park or rent a boat or jet ski. One side has campsites for camper traitors and/or tents with several bath houses, play yards, picnic areas and even a tennis court. The other is more peaceful and is for fifth wheels or campers, and also has a bath house and small play ground. The staff was friendly and we had a wonderful time. The grounds are somewhat un-kept, its not trashy but could be mowed more often. It's a great place to spend time on the lake, or have a family summer reunions under the pavilions. Would recommend this to anyone staying around Muskogee. - 3paynes
