Lake Murray State Park is Oklahoma's first and largest state park consisting of 12,500 acres around beautiful Lake Murray. The park's diverse terrain, exceptional trails and historic sites make Lake Murray State Park a favorite destination among outdoor, water sport and ATV riding enthusiasts. Encompassing acres of forested, rolling hills in southern Oklahoma, Lake Murray State Park is a prime destination for outdoor activities.
Nine RV campgrounds with 329 RV sites and 500 tent sites are located throughout Lake Murray State Park with full hookups, restrooms and showers. Some RV sites within the park are pull-through and six of the nine campgrounds are open 24 hours a day, with three gated (Elephant Rock, Cedar Cove and Tipps Point). If not camping, these campgrounds require a small day-use fee. Other campgrounds include Duke's Forest, ATV campground, Martin's Landing, Rock Tower, Marietta Landing and Buzzard's Roost. All offer a variety of RV sites, as well as tent sites. Three seasonal group camps are also located within the park.
For a more secluded experience, book one of the park's 56 cabins. These state park cabins feature everything from cozy cottages for two up to large family-size cabins; some feature convenient kitchenettes. For a small fee, pets are allowed in select cabins. A number of the cabins are also historic structures built in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps.
