Over all we had a good stay here. You will need a water pressure reducer. We went through 3 water pressure reducers before we found what we needed. The Park Host has (poorly behaved) grandkids. Ticks are kind of bad, so be sure to check yourself. I give it a 10 rating if the grand kids are not visiting. But if they are here, I give it a 7 or below. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is located just below the dam along the Arkansas River. All sites are level and most are long enough to accommodate big rigs. Sites are back-in but angled for easy back-in. Sites are not too close together. Although the signs said 14 day maximum stay, most of the campers appeared to be long-term. There were 100 lb. and 250 lb. propane tanks at two of the sites and clutter and junk at other sites that were typical of long-term campers. There is construction going on at the dam and just across the dam on highway 151 and I suspect that some or most of the campers are construction workers. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Site 20 best view next to dam of Keystone Lake. Bathrooms need TLC - no entry doors, bugs galore. Some overhanging branches, need care in parking and slide use. Price listed is before Senior Pass 50% discount. Quiet place. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This could be a very nice park. They are in the process of adding more spaces. Easy access to US 412. WI-FI works great, TV via antenna is good. The rate reflects $300 monthly rent. Some good people, but lots of "trailer trash" as well. While we were here a neighbor's ATV and trailer were stolen. We won't be back. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The campground is way out in the middle of nowhere, at exit 209th Avenue off Highway 51, so it's west of Sand Springs. Nothing available except utilities and dumpster. Most trailers there for storage as the rate is so low ($250/30 amp, $275/50 amp). Good thing is that it's next to a friendly bar called the Expressway, really nice people hang out there - they'll make you a friend by the time you leave! Conoco gas station with store on the corner. Is on frontage road which dead ends. Sewer hook-ups on west-side sites go up-hill, but hasn't been a problem. A small concrete pad at each site, gravel or grass elsewhere. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We arrived after 5 and wandered around until we found a site that had some late afternoon shade. There were plenty of sites to choose from. Water and electricity cost $20. Sewer cost $3 more. We camped in the Green Country area, but the Lake Country area had more oak trees and was less crowded. The bathrooms and showers were clean, but badly in need of a makeover. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Keystone Lake State Park is located on the shore of the Arkansas River. All sites are back in and our park section (Green Section ) was FHU/30/50 amp. They do offer W/E sites, There is a boat launch ramp close by and the sites have a nice size grass yard with picnic table. Some sites had a fire pit – ours didn’t. Their restaurant closes for the season after Labor Day. The check in point has a small camp store but restaurants/stores are with 10 easy miles of the campground. Our Verizon Mi-Fi worked well – there is no park wireless. We got the senior discount for our stay. The park was full on this weekend. We could not make internet/phone reservations but fortunately we arrived early and landed a good site beside the park pavilion. The park could use some speed bumps to slow the joy riding drivers down. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful location! Large grassy sites overlooking the lake. Very quiet. We were there mid week and there was no one there. It is about 15 minutes out of Tulsa. Would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice park. We go to this area quite often to visit family and this is the best around. Nice big spots and parking area. Very quiet and the train that goes by over a mile away never bothered us. We stayed in the Green Country section and the lake is not too visible from some sites but a short walk will get you there. The lake is close and Pier 51 ramp with a restaurant and all kinds of boat rentals. Staff is very friendly and they have 24 hr security with park rangers. This is a park I will stay in for future visits. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stopped here for three nights and used it as our base while visiting Tulsa, which is about 20 minutes away. Arrived on Friday. The camp was full by the end of the day, so got here by 2pm or so. During the week it was 1/3 full, so arriving on a weekday should be less stressful. If you want quiet, good space between units, and don't mind backing in, try to get a FCFS space in Green Country. No lake swimming access as the camp is fronted by a marina. Lake was way up, and there is a boat launch 50 yards away. All sites appear level with good approaches, concrete pads. Green County has nice tree cover on the outside of the loop, inside no cover for those who don't like to park under trees in storm-prone areas like Tulsa. There is another RV camp (turnoff right before Green Country) with pull-throughs. That camp, which costs the same and has WES as well, has much, much less space between units. Its plus, is direct lake access for swimming. It seems to attract young adults and teenagers with partying on their minds. Downside: others have complained about the noise of the train, which looks to be 1/4 mile away across open water. We noticed it as well when we scoped it out. Cannot comment on facilities since we didn't use any. The rating is based on the poor KP - trash everywhere. It appears that trash left behind from inconsiderate campers stays in place - no one on staff to pick it up. Very disappointing from that aspect. If they would KP the place, it would be at least a 9 from me because of the reasonable costs, full WES, level concrete pads, quiet, away from town but close enough to take advantage of Tulsa area offerings. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate included $2 per night senior discount (62+). Nice park, office staff were friendly. There is a little store with some items, milk, bread, souvenirs, etc. Two camping areas, one with full hookups, and one with only electric/water. Some pull throughs in the electric/water section, but they are close together. Both camping loops view the lake. First come, first served, no reservations. In the full hook up section, there is nice spacing between sites. Electric pole is mid-ship, pads are concrete and level with enough room to park your tow in front. Electric is steady, water pressure is good. Lots of trees for shade. Concrete picnic tables at each site on a concrete pad. Firepit and grill at each site. There is a playground and a pavilion in the middle of the FHU camping section. A tent only area is provided. They offer a restaurant/bar at the marina, nice menu, outside dining. Prices are good and the night we went, we enjoyed the food and good service. Park Rangers are present. However, as with many parks now, there appear to be some “longer term” guests. However, all sites were clean and neat. Sites and firepits are not cleaned between visitors, but ours was not bad except for cigarette butts everywhere. Great bird watching here. No wifi, but Verizon air card and phone worked fine here. If the park had provided wi-fi, we would have given it a 10. There is a train a few miles away. We heard it, but did not find it bothersome. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful park, we found out the next morning, but hard to figure out if you arrive late and are a newbie. Side-by-side pads in the Full hook up area, with a view out the front of your trailer over the lawn and lake. We could only stay the one night, but we'd stay again and get there earlier if possible. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
There are two main campgrounds within this park - Green Country (which has the marina and maybe a restaurant?) and Lake Country (which has 3 camping sections). We stayed in the latter, in the sort of middle section. There's an area more in the trees on a hill (which looked better for tents and smaller rigs), an area closer to the water (which looked nice but was full), and the area we stayed in (which was kind of in between the two, exposed and not as close to the water but with a nice view still). Nice park if you have kids or pets - two nice playgrounds and lots of grassy area. The Lake Country was more open space, felt less crowded/closed-in and busy. The sites are a little tight with the short posts and concrete tables, but there's a wide road on one side to help give you maneuvering room. We got our 40' RV in with some care. Train nearby, but with AC on, can't hardly hear it when inside! Really enjoyed our stay here. Rate reflects the $2 discount for seniors (of any state). We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a COE State Park, easy to get into and out of in our 38' 5th wheel. Very level large pad, good electric, sewer and fair water pressure. We stayed in the Green Country section of the park for two weeks, which has full hookups. The bathroom/showers were clean the one time we looked. This area is next to the Peer 51 Boat Arena. There have been a few nights of parties at the camp sites and boat dock. Although the Park Ranger does patrol often during the day and evening hours, if they are patrolling at night, they do not stop the parties. Bike/walking trails with fitness centers along the trail are nice. There is a lake view from most of the Green Country camping spots. AT&T wireless was on the Edge Network ONLY. Our external antenna helped a great deal. A Wal-Mart and town (Sand Springs) shopping is about 10 miles away. The Keystone Lake Dam is about a mile away and is interesting to see. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a nice large park with a good hiking trail nearby, the Two Rivers Trail. Good lake access with nearby dam fishing. It is only a few miles to a mid-sized town with a Super Wal-Mart. I would camp here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very large State Park located on large Keystone lake. Nice sized sites with both pull-through and back in. Ours was across the drive from the lake with a great view. Swimming, boating, fishing, water skiing, etc. Great family park. Restrooms/showers located some distance from sites if you needed them. Recommend that you opt for the more northern loop as the southern one is by a railroad line. Got $2 off for being a senior (60+). We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This place is very quiet, beautiful and scenic. It is located right off Hwy 5; not difficult to get in and out of. There is a playground for the kids. They have a country store on site, and serious grocery shopping and fuel is within 5 miles. It is very well maintained. Boat rental is available within walking distance, and a fishing dam is within a mile. The only drawback for us was no laundry facility. We stayed the maximum 14 days. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A very nice state park. Sites are wooded, near the lake, some sites were very close to the shore. Some were up on the hilltop and you couldn't see the lake for the trees, but that's OK. It is close to Tulsa, with lots to do. There is a marina right near the campgrounds with a restaurant on the water. It is a very nice place to stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice park. Clean facilities. Not a lot of amenities as far as a pool, ect; but it is a quiet park and the rangers were very helpful. The restrooms could use some updating, they were clean but old. Very scenic area, will stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
It is a pretty lake. Great trails. We found some sites tucked away in the trees, so there was plenty of shade. Some nice playgrounds for the kids. Overall a good experience. Would go back. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
This park has at least 10 campgrounds, with varying prices and utilities, and each is a small strip of campsites, one unit deep. This way we had no "neighbors" front and rear, and an awesome view of the lake, even though our site wasn't "lake front". Pull-through and back-in sites are the same price. Full utilities are $21; other sites $16 and $8 (no hook-ups). It is a family friendly park, well run, with hiking trails, playground, boating and fishing. Roads are paved and sites are concrete with picnic table and grill at each site. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Watch the road entering. If someone were coming the other direction it could get very interesting! The park is clean. Lots of long terms but the park is kept neat. This isn't a destination park, but a good place to stop overnight. You can see the river, what there is of the river right now. There was a gazebo that was set up with comfortable chairs and a grill that anyone could use. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very busy park with a mix of long and short term visitors. The people are very friendly and helpful, but they pack you in like sardines in a can. There is a steep hill leading into the park and,once you get in the park, there is not a lot of room between sites. I was so close to the next RV I could not put my awning out. There seems to have been little thought to the placement of water and sewer hookups, and we did not have enough hose to reach for our sewer connection. However the managers provided me with hose for free, but it was leaky. The WiFi was intermittent and I had to request they reset it several times. Not the best park I have ever stayed in, but far from the worse. One thing I have to say was that the management personnel were very nice and helpful. Not a park to relax in but a reasonable price and close to food and gas. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here in March and it was pretty cold. We have stayed here before only because of the convenience to relatives home. It is real dusty here as all of the streets are dust and gravel. The owner met us on arrival and is very helpful. There are a lot of workers staying here but everyone was very friendly and we had no problems other than the dust. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice manager on site. Plenty of room at the park. Grandson liked the play ground. Looked like some people living there but still a nice park. If you want a quiet place this is not for you. The train below the hill comes by quite often and blows the horn right below the hill. But worse than that was the dust! My wife and I found we were so stopped up when we left and didn't know we had allergies so bad. I was miserable until we left and were gone for a few days. I would go back and stay at this park, but it would really be nice to have a paved drive. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed in this park for about a week and would recommend it. The owner greeted us when we came in and even helped us set up. Both he and his assistant were very friendly and helpful. The sites are a little close together but the whole park is well maintained. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The owner is very helpful at this mostly year-round occupied park. It has terrific concrete pads long enough that you don't have to unhook unless you just need to. There is a nice gazebo with a propane grill that the owner filled for us when told it was empty. The park is just off major highways less than 10m west of Tulsa. We camped here in a Motorhome.
If you are looking for a quiet place to relax, I could not recommend this park. If you are looking for a park that is convenient to Tulsa and is well-maintained by friendly owners, then you’re good. First, the issue of noise. We were on the north edge closest to the road, railroad tracks and river. The noise from the road and the train was at times deafening. Every night, the train would pass by several times and sound their horn 5-6 times right at the park. I’m a sound sleeper, but it made me jump every time. I will not swear that it was that loud for all campers, just that OUR site was subject to lots of noise. WiFi wasn’t stellar, but good enough. Cable TV was okay. Hook ups were well-positioned and our pad was level (although we saw a couple of the others that looked off). IMPORTANT: This RV park was packed to capacity when we were here: make reservations! It is located very close to a welding training center and evidently most of the occupants were students there. They get up early to go to school and it can be a bit noisy around 6 a.m. (Wasn’t a problem for me because I was here for work as well). We had no problems with obnoxious people or loud music, etc. Everyone seemed to be very nice. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park is new and still under construction in some areas. Has paved roads w/concrete slabs. Owner is a policeman and this is to be his retirement. Nice people, even came over to help me hook up when we came in. Hard to find, high on a bluff overlooking the Arkansas river. If you're going, look for the old concrete silo on south side of highway 51, drive is just east of it going up the hill. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The sites here are a little small and some are difficult to get into depending on the size of the rig. The interior roads are narrow and tight with trees close to the edge of the road. These campsites are fine for smaller rigs, but the larger ones should choose sites on the periphery of the campground. We were wedged in pretty tightly between some trees and weren't able to put our awning out on our last visit. It would be nice if the sites were paved or at least had a fresh layer of gravel on them. The camp hosts are very friendly and helpful. The bathrooms/showers are clean and well maintained. The swimming area is rather rocky. The walking trail is nice with some pretty scenery. We have camped here on a couple of occasions and we will camp here again because this area is close to us. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I have been to quite a few Corps parks and this is one of the worst. It doesn't have to be this way. Like most Corps parks, this one is located on water, Keystone Lake, with nice views of the lake. Some sites are lakeside. Many of the sites can accommodate big rigs but the interior roads are narrow with trees near the edge of the road. Trees need to be trimmed to avoid brushing against the top and sides of the RV. Many of the sites have steep grades. There is severe erosion throughout the park from rainwater. Large pieces of driftwood clutter the boat landing. Little or no attempt has been made to keep the sites, which are gravel, free of grass and weeds. Many sites need a fresh layer of gravel. Fire pits and grills were not cleaned on a regular basis. The price reflects the Senior Pass 50% discount. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
