It is not Big Rig friendly unless you want to unhitch your toad and scrape your coach. I spent the day on a ladder waxing out the tree limb scrunches from a park where the lady said..."oh no problem you can get in and out of here , there is plenty of room. Learned never to trust those words. The road and curve were way too narrow which caused us to have to hug the side with the low hanging limbs. All I could do was hold my breath as the limbs scraped the whole side...but luckily it was more dirt than actual scratch. We got around and pulled right out the exit on the other side. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Campground is relatively new. The rest room's and shower's were very clean. The check in crew were very friendly and helpful. Work still needs to be done on interior roads and at the campsite right out from the office. Drop off to get to the exit road was such your back end might scrape. I backed out. Traffic noise is very noticeable. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Camped here in December after some ugly winter weather. They totally did nothing to sand or plow, making roads and sites super slippery. Kind of frustrating. And yet, a way cool place with super friendly staff. Good sites, most with a view of their little lake, good cable, good power, long level sites, and good dog walking. Some minor traffic noise from I-35. Definitely would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is overall quite pleasant. Our one complaint was the noise and prevents me from giving it a 10. The park seems to be on the flight path of small aircraft, there is a train track nearby and I-35 is close and carries an incredible amount of truck traffic at all hours. As long as you are buttoned up, the noise is not too bad for sleeping unless you are a light sleeper. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The nicest park we have ever stayed in. Restrooms and showers were sparkling clean. Grounds were very well kept. The park hosts were very friendly and helpful. We will stay here again for sure. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is one of the better campgrounds that I have camped in and I have been 10 yrs RVing. Some of the friendliest mangers I have met. The sites are fairly level and the top row of pull through are white rock. Has a pretty lake to view from a small distance. The bathrooms and showers were spotless. I would camp here again if coming through. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The park was clean and seemed well kept. it was far off the road down a narrow two lane road. The staff was friendly and helpful. Use their directions not navigation. Our navigation took us way off track. There was a good bit of highway noise off I-35. We would overnight here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Lots of grass between sites and long pull throughs so you do not need to unhook toad. It is a few miles from the highway, but a very pleasant location and very pleasant owners or managers. Nice areas to walk pets and nice pool area. People were fishing in the lake. We were here overnight, but it is a nice park for a longer stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stopped for one night passing through. Staff was nice and helpful. Site was big, Wi-Fi worked. Lake is a little distance from your site as the ones right on it are monthly rentals. Would stay here again if passing through. Clean. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The park is clean. There are no trees or landscaping so it is not very pleasing to the eye. But there is a great little fishing pond for kids. There are level concrete pads. I-35 noise was barely noticeable. Lake Murray is across i-35. It is a great place to stay for night or two but really there is nothing to do at the campground. But if you want a sewer hookup stay here if visiting the lake. If hookups are not a priority stay at lake Murray state park. We'd stay again if in area because kids love to fish. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Nice park for a day or two. Restrooms were clean and the park overall was well maintained. The Wi-Fi we found to be so weak that we could not get connected or stay connected most of the time. Cable TV, although limited, worked fine. Trash dumpsters were located some distance from the camp site. The major disadvantage to this park is it’s location. Although you can see I-35 (and hear the road noise) it’s not easy to get back into the park. We stayed here for 5 days visiting the area and the Good Sams rate was $25. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great place to stay for a night or two. My wife's family lives in town & we take the trailer here for our "shakedown" runs. Very nice people. Nice, clean restroom/showers. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice amenities. Restrooms were clean and seemed very new. Plenty of room between spaces. Almost all spaces were gravel. There was one paved one that we luckily got since it was raining really hard that day. You can hear freeway noise since it's right off the freeway, but the sites on the same side of the lake as the office were much less noisy. Staff was helpful and friendly. One thing to note --a rule that we noticed on their information sheet that they gave us at check in. It said to refrain from using alcohol. From the wording, we weren't sure if that really meant that drinking is prohibited or if they meant "don't get drunk/loud, etc." We just stayed overnight so we didn't test the rule, but I would clarify if we planned a longer stay there. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Wi-Fi was weak. Spent one night. There was some trash caught up in the pool fence. The walkway to the lake could have been cleared away a little better. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground would rate 10 stars if they had more shade trees. The campground seems fairly new and most of the trees were small and not effective for shading the campsites. Everything else was wonderful. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the sites had full hookups, the rate (with Good Sam Discount) was very reasonable, the showers, bathrooms, and laundry facilities were immaculate. Note that the laundry room had washers and dryers (all seemed new) but no laundry sink. The swimming pool and playground were well maintained and, in the August heat, the pool was the social gathering spot for the campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great place to stay!!! Stayed here 3 months. Everything is very convenient and management is top notch. I would definitely stay here again without a doubt. Hidden Lake RV is the best RV park in the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
In a rural location outside of town, this clean park surrounds a lake. The owner and staff are friendly and helpful. Long-term residents are on one side of the lake and short-term on the other. Pull-through sites on the short-term side are the longest I have seen anywhere and are easy in, easy out. There is space for two rigs in one site. Trees are still too small to be of any benefit. Two very attractive bathrooms on the short-term side are clean, each with a toilet, shower, and lavatory, so only one person at a time in each room. Has the best inventory of RV parts I have seen in a campground. Satellite TV has 30 channels, but we did not connect. WiFi signal was the fastest I have experienced at an RV park and connectivity was perfect. Very nice pool and playground. A flock of geese live at the lake, so watch where you step when walking close to the lake. There is some road noise from I-35, but it did not bother us. The owner invites comments and suggestions and pays attention to this website so he can respond to customer likes and dislikes. We definitely recommend this park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is one of the better RV parks I've been to...maybe the best. The staff here is second to none. I arrived a little later than I had planned - but the camp host met me in less than 3 minutes and had me checked in. The sites are BIG and everyone of them all pull-thrus which are a plus for me. All of the sewer/water/electrical connections were in the right place and at the right height. They have Wi-Fi and Satellite TV service that worked great. When you come you have to check out the pool/spa area. They have a large covered patio that overlooks the pool and the lake...it's a nice place to just relax/unwind. The bathrooms are super clean and huge - they look like a bathroom that you'd find in a 5-Star resort hotel. Plus if you have kids - they have a really nice playground right next to the pool area. There are two really good fishing' spots on the property. One they call the "beaver lake" - I never saw a beaver - but I did catch a pretty nice bass. And then they have the other lake which is behind the pool area. This lake has a large dock that you can go out on. One more note on the staff - the first night I got there - I thought I had some problem with the site power service. The camp host was down there in a jiffy and within minutes had figured out that one of my breakers had tripped on my RV - within minutes he had me up and running - he didn't charge me a dime. I will definably be back again, hopefully to stay a little longer this time. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Easy access from I-35. Really nice park (yea, the roads are a little rough, not much) we camped in site #47 (cement pad) the pads are really nice but too short. In order to get the motorhome close to hookups, the front of the coach was 10 feet in front of the pad. Coach leveled out just fine though. Nice store, lots of accessories, Really friendly and helpful Camp Host. Would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The only detraction to this park in my opinion, is the street going to it being a little narrow and they need to put a sign where the residential area starts, letting you know the park is just a little further down the street. There is some noise from I-35 but it didn't bother us. The personnel were very nice and most accommodating. The store is well stocked with RV supplies as well. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Cost reflects discount. We read that this is a new RV park but it is easy to locate just off I-35. Yes, there is Interstate noise and on weekend there is a race track near so the motors are loud, louder than the highway noise. Our hillside site was very long with a concrete pad and a patio with grill and table overlooking the lakes. Sites were very wide as well as long. The combined shower and restroom were by combination entrance and very clean. Everything one could want in nearby Ardmore including many shopping, restaurants, Wal-Mart, Flying-J, and much more. Nearby is the free by donation Gene Autry, OK Museum, a museum of all the movie singing cowboys but especially Autry. A good stop in southern Oklahoma. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was our first ever RV camping experience! We overnighted here and arrived after dark. We made reservations, so we didn't have any problems arriving late. It was a lovely small, rural campground with a nice playground for the kids. There was noise from the highway, but it was softened with the sound of the fountain in the little lake. The pads were concrete, and the roads were gravel: there were picnic tables at most sites. We would absolutely stay here again. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Very nice park. A fair amount of road noise from the interstate but a really good overnight stop. Clean restroom/showers. Pull thru, level site. The host checked us in after hours and was very nice. Pleasant stop over. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I have to say this is one of the best RV Parks I've been to. The staff is nothing short of exceptional. Joseph and Charity are truly amazing people. The park is downright beautiful. There are two ponds (lakes) on site. Both are perfect for fishing and are filled with bass, crappie, & perch. Bring your fishing poles. The sites are huge pull-thrus with a large concrete pad and full hookups. Very easy to get in and out of. There is a nice laundry room that is air conditioned and it also has a TV. The bathrooms are huge. Matter of fact, these are the nicest bathrooms I've ever seen at any park. They remind you of a bathroom in a FIVE STAR hotel. There is a nice sized pool and hot tub behind the main store overlooking one of the lakes. As well as a large children's play area. Really nice setup - my wife & I were able to sit in the hot tub and still keep an eye on the kids while they played. If you find yourself needing a place to stay - check this one out. You won't find a better place in the area (5 state area) for the money, service, or amenities. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Nice park that abuts I-35, so there's a lot of traffic noise. There are 2 private bathroom/showers, which were big and clean, but 2 doesn't seem like enough--especially when you trudge a long way from your RV to find them both occupied. The pool and hot tub look great, but we turned the spa heater on at 5 and 2 hours later it still wasn't hot. So if you want to use it, maybe you should call first and ask them to turn it on a few hours before you arrive. Flat sites with grass in between, no trees. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice, newer park, with super clean private restrooms and hot shower. We had a quiet spot near the main building, lake and kids park. Will definitely return if coming this way! Would highly recommend if traveling with children as many things to do, kids play area, even fishing and summer outdoor pool. Thank you! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park was a pleasant surprise. It has level concrete sites surrounding a small lake. It is very clean but very sparse with nothing but sites and no trees or landscaping. The roads are gravel. The main building had a small shop with some groceries and RV parts, all very nicely displayed. The staff is very friendly. It is about 2 miles off the interstate down a little country paved road and straight through a small neighborhood, but it was not a problem, and the location made it very quiet. The TV and wifi worked great. There was a nice amount of room between sites. We stayed in a motorhome and would highly recommend it for a short stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Fairly new park. Very level sites with concrete pad to park on. All hookups easy and in proper place. Very nice pool and small private lake (pond really) with a lot of fish in it. It was hot when were here, but it's probably nicer in the fall. Some problems with the Wi-Fi, but it finally came up and it was a good signal. It's near I-35, but really didn't notice any noise. If you're not going to the state park nearby this is a very good spot. There is a parts store on the property, which is handy. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is strictly a bare bones park. Rates were rather high considering there is no bath house or laundry facilities, which I consider a staple for a RV park. The folks are very friendly and helpful. Sites and interior roads are all gravel. Sites are level. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a beautiful park on the edge of Lake Murray. The pull through sites are level and it does have a number of sites with nice trees between them. The campground hosts are friendly and helpful. We would stay there again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We chose this park randomly, we were leaving Dallas early afternoon and wanted to find somewhere not too far away. We checked our Allstays iPad app and this park was noted. As always we check out other 'campers' reviews and thought this one sounded pretty good. We arrived and were absolutely delighted! This park is an absolute gem! The sites are wide and long and pretty level, the hook ups perfect and each site has a grill and a fire pit! We called ahead and were told to just go and pick our own spot and that the camp hosts would be along later in the day to collect our camping fee. There were so many wonderful sites we drove around a couple of times before deciding. There are some sites directly on the lakeside, some nestled in the trees and some more appropriate for a big rig like ours. We were initially only going to stay for 3 days but extended for another 2. Peaceful, well maintained, beautiful sun sets, plenty of wildlife and walking trails and the cheapest laundry we have encountered on our 3 months of travelling. Camp hosts are friendly and provided us with plenty of information about the surrounding area. They are also currently expanding the park and building more sites. Fantastic! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
All the sites had level concrete pads and nice separations between sites. Restroom was clean . They have a laundry on site. We will be coming back to stay. Wish they would allow reservations though. Would have given this site a 10 if reservations were allowed We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is one of our favorite stops. It is a state park campground with excellent facilities for a large rig. We parked a 36' coach with towed vehicle and did not have to unhook the towed vehicle. The pads are level concrete and the utilities are placed well for hooking up. There is plenty of room on the gravel portion of the pull through sites to park another vehicle. There are nearby trails through the woods where the dog enjoys walks. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We really liked this park, and would stay here again. Restrooms were clean, park is clean, and the cement pads were a definite plus. We rode around to the other parks at Murray on our motorcycle, and would say this is the nicest park Murray has. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Beautiful and probably the cleanest State park we've stayed in. Access for big rigs is excellent and the concrete pads are very level with long sites for parking towables. Many shaded sites with shrubs providing additional lateral privacy and plenty of room for slideouts. Elephant Rock is first come first served basis only. The other Park RV areas not as clean but are reservable. Great boating, fishing, golf available. Low handicappers may choose to travel a few miles to Chickasaw Pointe. We stayed 3 days in a motorhome. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I really enjoyed this park. We got in on a Friday afternoon and got one of the last waterfront parks available. We were able to jump right out of the RV and swim in the lake. The water was unbelievably clean! The part that sucked was the pool (which we couldn't use) was too far away anyways, they should open that up to RV'ers. Otherwise it was a nice place with a great view plenty of spots to choose from. We'll go back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice state park with clean restrooms and showers. You do need to pay to use the showers, but the rates are reasonable and I'd wager a guess that the fee is the reason the showers and restrooms are as nice as they are. Many of the sites have excellent shade trees, and the Lake is very accessible. We will probably camp here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a good destination site for lake recreation. Our site was gravel and concrete. It was spacious, level, and had good access to hookups. Entry and exit were easy. Parking near hookups requires detaching the towed vehicle. There were lots of trails and grass for walking the dog. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A wonderful family friendly state park. Stayed with kids and grandkids and found plenty to do and keep everyone happy. Sites at the Elephant Rock campground are level with lots of grass space in between. Secluded sites among the trees are available as well as sites at the waterfront. Staff was friendly and willing to help. The park is a real bargain and a wonderful place to stay. Put this one is on the must stay list. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Moved here after scary experience at KOA down the road. Elephant Rock is excellent, paved level sites, good hook ups, clean, overlooking lake, large spots that were easy to get in and out of. Very peaceful in the evenings, at least in January which is the off-season for the Park. I highly recommend this site to anyone RV'ing big or small. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a great place to stay. The only complaint I have is that my cell phone did not have good coverage (Sprint PCS). They have a nice park for the kids and nice hiking/biking trails. They don't take reservations so if you are staying the weekend, try to get there by Thursday. Also, you pay at the site, they will come around in a golf cart, so just drive in and find you spot. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were on our way to Kansas and stopped at Lake Murray for the night. It was very easy to get to from I-35. Camp Hosts were great and very helpful. We drove farther than we planned on our way back to Texas just to stay there. Outstanding State Park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great state park campground. Swimming, boating and hiking available. Large sites with great privacy in addition to waterfront sites. Very busy and no reservations but well worth the trip. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Have nice concrete pull thru with full hookup. For a weekend stop, need to get there early Thursday to get a full hookup site.Swimming pool at Lake Murray lodge. Very quite. The lake is about 4 to 5 miles from I-35. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very pretty park area! Several of the sites allow viewing lake out back windows with the rear of the 5th wheel almost hanging over the water. Good roads into park, large level gravel sites with picnic tables and shade trees. We stayed one night, mid week and only had 8 other RVs there. Convenient to I35 and we will plan to stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We really enjoy Elephant Rock. Lots of trails for cycling/walking/jogging. Nice shady spots, most with decent privacy. Close to Lake Murray Lodge for typical lodge activities, swimming, mini-golf, paddle boats, pool, horseback riding, marina. Lots of restaurants in Ardmore as well. Only problem is that it fills up fast. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Lake Murray Resort is a huge state-run complex with several campgrounds spread out around a 25 mile loop road around the lake. The campgrounds vary in age and facilities. We stayed in a newly developed CG next to the All Terrain Vehicle course (a third full-hookup facility in addition to those mentioned in earlier posts). Had a large, level concrete pad with trees and full hookups for $19 a night. However, I wouldn't recommend this particular CG unless you are an ATV fan. Finding a good site at Lake Murray can be confusing for first time visitors as each campground is separately maintained and you can wander for hours looking at the various options. The main ranger station can provide general information. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Stayed in Elephant Rock Campground. It was very nice! All roads were paved and park was very clean. Backed into a site that was ten feet from lake. Site was large and concrete. Site had table and built in bbq. 50 amp power was new and modern. Site was satellite friendly. Look forward to staying at park when it is not raining. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Two of the camping areas in the park have full hookups. (Elephant Rock and Rock Tower.) Marrietta Landing (where we stayed), is at the south end of the lake. Showers/restrooms were very clean. Sites are gravel but surprisingly level. The park does have a lodge, restaurant, marina, tennis courts, horse stable, golf course, and airport. Definitely one of the best state parks in Oklahoma. The lake is very clean and clear. We camped here in a camper.

Oklahoma has 7 Resort parks in the State Park system. This was a beautiful well maintained area. Lake Murray has several campgrounds but only two with sewer hookups. The water front sites do not have sewer and cost more per night. Reservations are accepted only on some preferred sites. Golf course, tennis courts and a lodge are near by if that is your thing. This is the kind of place that will spoil you and lower your rating on other places. We camped here in a camper.
Lake Murray ATV Park is part of the State Park system and does not take reservations - first come first serve. This campground you can ride your ATV from the campground to the 1000+ acres of riding and trails. Located on the lake, you can ride down to the lake and go for a swim when it gets hot. The sites have fire rings, picnic tables, cooking grilles, and paved pads. There is no riding at night which makes it quiet after dark. They just built a new playground for kids that is awesome. The bathrooms are clean and the showers require quarters. We have been coming here for years and have met a lot of nice folks. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is one campground of several campgrounds located at Lake Murray State Park, the oldest and largest state park in Oklahoma. This campground as well as others in this park are heavily used and take no reservations. If you don't arrive early on Friday for the weekend during the summer you probably will not get an RV site. Holiday weekends apparently are completely full several days before the holiday. Approximately one-half of the sites have full hookups, with concrete pads and are pull thrus. Some are located along the lake shore. The remainder of the sites are back-in which would be difficult for big rigs to get into. This park was very crowded and I only saw one bathouse/restroom for this campground. It also has a boat launch. The dump station is not easily accessible for big rigs; fortunately there are other dump stations in the park that are somewhat more accessible and available to use. Camp hosts and park personnel were friendly and helpful. This park also has a golf course. We would probably stay here again if passing through. I would have rated this park higher if the campground had been spread over a greater area, the back-in sites were easier to back into and the park accepted reservations. The rate was for a 30 amp service hookup. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Lake Murray is remarkable. There were plenty of spots with shade. It was like we had a private beach with shade. The showers and bathrooms were super clean. Great playground for the kids. Horse back riding. Great for families. We camped in a pop-up. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
The setting is gorgeous, and the park is well-maintained by the state, with regular trash pickup and clean restrooms. The rangers were very friendly and helpful. Since the park is well-staffed, it seemed better than average, security-wise. The boat ramp is conveniently located and there is easy access to the water for the kids and dogs. The downside is that you cannot select or reserve a campsite in advance. By 5PM Friday on a non-holiday weekend, all RV sites were full. Since we couldn't select a quieter spot and were lucky to get something at all, it was a lot noisier and congested than we like, and had no water hookup. People with large RVs should arrive at an off-time or make backup plans because it does not look like there are a lot of spaces that accommodate large RVs. There are not a lot of places to walk the dogs without walking them past other peoples' campsites and upsetting their dogs. If you want to be in the thick of things and are not picky about sites, this is a great campground because it is beautiful and well taken care of. If you like more quiet and seclusion or have special requirements for your site, I don't recommend it. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
