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.
