The best camping near Cross Timbers State Park guide



If you’re craving a change in elevation, head to Cross Timbers State Park. You can explore the gently rolling hills of the Verdigris River Valley and surround yourself with a panoramic view of oak savannah. Activities include wildlife viewing (or participating), backpacking (we hear the Ancient Trees Trail is where it’s at), fishing in the river or on the reservoir, dancing to the songbirds, swimming, and boating. At night the campfires are visited by whiskey, beer, or marshmallows, and you’ll sleep peacefully in your tent or RV beneath an ocean of stars!
