We stayed here for three nights to let some awful weather pass us by. We really enjoyed our stay. We were right on the river and within site and sound of the dam. We had lots of lovely birds and took some nice long walks in the very nice park. We camped at Great Salt Plains State Park in a Travel Trailer.

The only reason I dropped this down to an 8 was the mowing was not done enough to get rid of the sand burrs. They were horrible, stuck to everything and cause my son and dog all kinds of pain. Maybe spray for them at the campsites. Other than that, it was a great place to camp. Great concrete picnic table with lantern hooks. Easy to back in. Clean. Playground, Dump Station, Public shower house. Nice little Chapel in the woods (although on Sunday morning they played music and appeared to have a service, but no signs told us what time or who put it on). Camp host was great - Welcomed us, asked to you need anything, then left us alone. Do not wear flip-flops or open shoes to avoid sand burrs. Might need feet protection for the dog. Make sure your awning works. We camped at Great Salt Plains State Park in a Travel Trailer.

There are two campgrounds- we stayed at the nicer of the two along the river down from the spillway. THE OTHER CAMPGROUND IS BAD FOR TALL RIGS! (We lost a vent cap and broke a piece off our A/C shroud when driving through.) The mosquitos were bad even during the day, but site was nice. Also had a great playground. We spent one night and never saw a ranger, so owe the state of Oklahoma $20. We camped at Great Salt Plains State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Overall Rating:

The only reason for the 9 not 10 rating is no sewer, but most state. parks don't have sewer. Great view from back window of RV, backed up to river where pelicans, cormorants, egrets, ducks and other water fowl are busy catching fish. In November, Sandhill cranes are here in the tens of thousands on the lake by the Eagle Roost Trail (at the Nat'l Refuge north of the state park). Sites are widely spaced, cement slabs with fire ring and free-standing grill, water and electricity only, but there is a dump by the entrance to park. In the fall the trees are beautiful colors. We stayed in site #5 and had pretty good cell service, but most sites don't have decent service. Site #20 is closest to the dam where all the pelican action is. We will definitely return again. We camped at Great Salt Plains State Park in a Travel Trailer.

First 2 weeks of November major bird migratory path is Great Salt Plains Lake and Park. We saw thousands of Sandhill Cranes, also 3 mating pairs of bald eagles in park, saw 5 immature eagles and heard owls regularly, couldn't see them. The lake is very low and has silted in and needs to be dredged, but the wildlife still love the lake and there is a lot there to see and enjoy. The campground is excellent but lost on two points: no cell (which is really not their fault, but you need to know AT&T has no bars), the dump station fills up fast and drains slowly, so be careful here. Otherwise the park was fine, nice concrete slab that are level, good electrical and water hook ups, park is clean is crowded on the weekends and park rangers are evident and available. You park your RV and the park ranger will come by and get the fee for your RV. I would stay here again (we plan to come back when the birds migrate through again.) We parked in the River Road We camped at Great Salt Plains State Park in a Travel Trailer.

I wasn't too clear on where to go and how to select and pay for a site. Had to ask a camper who said "Just pick anything and the ranger will come by and take your money" and he did about 15 minutes later. Quiet place but be careful of the goathead/bullthorn stickers on the ground. These things are off the chart in sharpness and difficulty in removing. Watch your step. We camped at Great Salt Plains State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for one night and found the park very clean and easily accessible. We would stay here again. Great location for watching the migration of the whooping cranes or the Sandhill Cranes. We camped at Great Salt Plains State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

I enjoyed this campground which is situated along the spillway and stream run off of a large dam, creating the Great Salt Plains Lake, that you could hike about. The sites are paved and nicely spaced with some trees. Clean bath and hot showers. Pleasant ranger to talk with. Most fun thing was to watch the cormorants and other water birds fishing in the runoff waters will sitting in a chair at the edge of the campsite. I was amazed at the huge size of a fish one cormorant flipped about and swallowed slowly head first. Off the beaten path, but we were heading west from Bartleville to northern New Mexico, and the scenery in May along the Panhandle of Oklahoma was very interesting. We camped at Great Salt Plains State Park in a Motorhome.

We agree with previous poster that this park is a long ways from anywhere, but it was very quiet and peaceful. RV sites were spacious, level and well-maintained. Only 2 pull-thru's. Great view of the water coming over the spillway of the dam. Great fishing at the spillway as well as the lake. Walk your dog on the road because grass is full of stickers! Bring plenty of groceries; it's 20 miles to nearest grocery store. Office staff and rangers are very friendly and helpful. We camped at Great Salt Plains State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Located approx 8 miles north of Jet, OK in the middle of nowhere. Oklahoma has different fees for the site depending if the site is "preferred" meaning it is on the river. NO cell phone or over-the-air TV reception, weak WTX. We don't fish and that means not much to do. Lots of bird viewing, some hiking. Some days there are Air Force trainers flying overhead from their field across the street from the park. Come stocked with provisions as limited groceries are in town but fuel is available. Roads to Jet are not the best but passable. Used to be a place for selenite crystal digging but digging is no longer allowed due to discovery of glass bottles from WWII filled with some type of nerve agent (I believe - call for info). Quiet and peaceful. Folks in the office very friendly and helpful. We camped at Great Salt Plains State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
