Shouldn't have resort in the name at all. Paved roads, pot holes, sites arent big, but pull thru's are, was made for motor homes. No picnic table; in this resorts sites are really narrow. No pad in this resort. Oh yes this resort has a splash pad. Fishing rent a bike rent a fishing pole. - JustDon

The office people and grounds people are all very nice and accommodating. The grounds, garbage pickup, etc. are all very well maintained. As mentioned in other reviews, the road into the park as well as the sites are narrow, but are paved. Trees are at almost every site, but I could not open my awning because the tree was in the way. Someone did not take awnings into consideration when planting the trees. It is quiet, with horses and buffaloes in the adjoining pasture. Fishing is available from two docks. There are a few fire pits located next to the lake. There are also picnic tables at the pavilion and at some of the sites. If your site doesn't have a table, you could probably ask that one be moved to it from the pavilion, but not sure. They are in the process of adding a splash pad for kids. Bikes and kayaks are available for rent. If you come in after dark, the entry from highway 59 is very hard to see. There is a sign that can be seen, but the entry is hard to see. There are reflectors, but they don't help much. I would suggest arriving before dark. I would definitely stay here again, because it is a beautiful park with lots of area to walk, bike, etc. I just wish the sites were larger. If you get one of the four pull through sites, you'll be okay. Otherwise you may be a little cramped if the park fills up. However, there is ample additional parking. Showers and restrooms available as well. - DoubleT

Nice quiet small campground. Blacktop roads and sites are very narrow. We chose one of the pull through sites to make it easier. nice and dark at night. Buffalos are in a field next to the campground. 50a, water and sewer all worked as did the rooftop dish, no trees. Verizon cell and hotspot worked well. Staff was very friendly and helpful, nice gift shop. Price was passport America. - big greg

We stayed at Lake Wister for 2 weeks, in our 40 ft 5th wheel. We had one of the only full hookup pull thru sites (55) in the entire park. The roads were so narrow and turns so tight, I had to back my trailer 200 feet into my pull thru site. The roads in the park were well maintained, but as I said extremely narrow. We were in the Victor area, which is a 5 mile drive from the highway, on a road that could use some work. Our site had a concrete pad, but it was just big enough for the trailer, not for the tow vehicle. The bathrooms were older, but appeared clean, but in need some updates. One more problem was checking in. The office is on the other side of the lake, and once you pull in, you have to make a hazardous turn to get back out. In my opinion the price was high for what we got. - Humble

Hidden gem, right on the lake with many sites with great views. Two different loops, we stayed in the Victor area. Only negative were the shower houses, which need updating. - Bob806

Sometimes you pull into a campsite and your heart sings and your spirit lifts and you think "This is why I do this!" That's how I felt coming to Cedar Lake. Cedar Lake is a small lake with a color like a glacial lake, pale blue/green and gorgeous. It is fed by two creeks. There are three major sections for camping. The east side has many lovely unserviced campsites. There is a section of serviced campsites including some with sewer on the south side on one of the two creeks. There is a third group of sites above that on the west side of the lake that have water and electric. The upper area overlooks a lovely brown sand beach suitable for swimming. Half the sites, including all the sites adjacent to the beach, are reservable. Half are first, come first serve. Everything about this campsite was perfectly suited to my tastes. Big, spacious, private, paved drive, fire pit, barbecue, picnic table, and two places to hang things. We started with a lower level campsite with sewer in order to get our laundry done. We moved to a west side campsite high over the lake on the ridge where we could see both sunrise and sunset the next day. There is a three mile hike around the lake that is a delight. There are numerous other longer hikes. The west campground is adjacent to an equestrian camp so we got to see horses coming and going. Two caveats. The lower campsite with sewer is in a flash flood zone. Part of why we moved up the hill was because the forecast was for thunderstorms. Also signs say the lake can be contaminated with toxic blue green algae in hot weather. During our stay, it was just heavenly. Abundant wildlife, birds, turtles, beavers, and deer and blissful long paddles around the perimeter of the tiny sheltered lake, hikes on pathways with blooming wildflowers and the sound of creeks. During the weekend it got a bit noisy and busy so go weekdays if you have a choice. - Judy Birchland

This is a USFS campground near in SE OK (actually closer to Heavener than Talihena as stated). The roads into the campground were in great shape. We stayed in the Shady Lake Area which does not have direct views of or access to the lake, so it was MUCH less crowded than the other area. Our site had 30 amp and water, and was perfectly level with a picnic table, two lantern poles, a nice grill and fire pit. The campground has lots of trees and shade, and the trees give some privacy as well. Restrooms were clean and the showers were free. Dump station was easily accessible (although there was no trash can at the dump station. - wulfleton

From a big rig perspective only; I have a 42' tag. Low hanging branches on narrow paths in the park were a problem. This is more a 5th wheel, tow trailer type of park and I would not recommend it for most Class A units, especially 40' or longer. Also, unless you have a portable satellite, satellite is not usable in this park. Verizon, AT&T work OK but the park WiFi was better and pretty good.
The park itself is not a bad place. A little noise from Highway 59 but not so bad. Nice pines, quiet. I had to smile some because their park rules state you must keep your site clean, yet, there were many permanent/long term campers that kept their sites anything but clean and uncluttered.
I would return with a different rig but not with the big rig. - R_R PRanger

We would of liked it better if the restrooms didnt have mold in them. We stayed there because our son lived close by and we were traveling through and wanted to visit. The price was good with the PA discount . The sights were level they were concrete strips. We would stay again if we had too. - cindy coffey

This is an old, tree covered park, but well maintained except for fallen leaves, and picnic tables need paint. Some full-timers with typical outside storage items. Gravel roads with adequate travel width and high-branched trees. An eclectic mix of gravel, paved and concrete pads, all level. There are four short-term 30 amp pull-thrus with double-strip concrete pads; the three short-term 50 amp pull-thrus were gravel. It rained every day and night, but the roads and pads, with a few low spot exceptions, drained well leaving the surfaces useable. Utilities were serviceable; antenna TV reception was excellent. AT&T cell was adequate; park internet was adequate for web surfing when others were not using it. The indoor pool is available only in the summer. Some road noise, but quiet at night. Excellent value with PA. Would return. - LoneWolf

Good overnight stay. We have dogs and look for green space for them to get some off leash exercise. Our campsite was ample for us and overlooked the lake. Quiet and only 4 other campers. One section is older and it was obvious many had bottomed out their trailers entering so beware. We stayed at the first loop as you go in and entrance was fine. Site was level. Electric and water. Camp host was not manning station and came around to collect. Half price for Senior national park pass. - busyteach

Very nice, this is a COE campground, regular price is $15. but with golden age card get it for $7.50, sites are right on lake, but campground is hard to find and signs are not good, but worth it once you get there, will say again - jim1

Truck problems forced us to visit this RV Park. It is located in a portion of Fort Chaffee military base that was sold/gifted to the city of Fort Smith. The town is a ghost town except for a few workers here or there. The park has lots of very nice RVs; figure most are long term visitors working in the area. Only two spots were available. Price is reflects 50amp FHU, cable (only worked one of two days) and internet. Spacing was acceptable. Spot was the most unlevel spot we've encountered in 2 yrs of traveling full time and was used as someone's ash tray. Connections are at the back of the spot. - MichelleKry
