Located in west central Oklahoma, the park and campsites are located down in the canyon among the canyon walls. In addition to RV and tent camping, the park offers picnic areas, nature trails, a small fishing pond, and playground equipment. The canyon walls are a favorite for rappelling and open exploration. In season, the park operates a swimming pool with bathhouse (and adjacent food concession) and the group camp, which offers overnight sleeping in bunkhouses, and a kitchen/dining hall for meals or meetings. Group picnic shelters are also available. The park and surrounding area has good opportunities for fall foliage viewing.

There were a few eye sores, an oil tank, a waste water lagoon and some weird abandoned buildings, but other than that most of the scenery is pretty. It just kinda spits you out on the road maybe half a mile from the trailhead though. Still it was a pretty fun hike.

Great views of the canyon.

I would have been a lovely hike but was so over ran with sticker bushes my dog couldn't even stand it. You stopped every 10 minutes to pull out bush full of stickers. If you're just hiking without pet and with jeans and boots you'll be fine and it's a gear work out

Found the start of the path but lost it several times because of overgrown grass and poor trail markers. Ended up in a circle and headed back. May try again at a later date.

Once finding the trail, it was a good light trail with some scenic areas. Mostly it just follows the back side of the property line

Very clean campground. We were just hiking for the day but the facilities and grounds were well maintained.

I enjoyed it a lot, short with a few climbs and easy to follow. Well maintained

Trail was nice until my daughter was two feet away from stepping on a 4' plus gigantic copperhead snake. Thank God I saw it laying across the path!!! Never have I seen a snake so large outside of the zoo!!

The views and the landscape was a five and it was beautiful, but we were hearing a lot of rattlesnakes and one particular around the first mile that was right next to the trail. We had to turn back in case anything happened.

nice terrain for a change
