Rock-N A Ranch is roughly 20 minutes away and offers horseback riding. The Cabins and Campsites are within walking distance from each other but far enough away to create that illusion of privacy.

The best camping near Chickasaw National Recreation Area guide

Overview

About

Step into a natural oasis at Chickasaw, a massive recreation area in south-central Oklahoma. Tree-lined streams and lakes create endless opportunities for swimming, boating, fishing, and water sports. Thanks to the National Park Service鈥檚 oversight, this area is a clean, family-friendly escape.

This Oklahoma oasis is at its best in the summer. Cool off in the Little Niagara Falls swimming hole, or fish in Veterans Lake. During cooler weather, check out the Travertine Nature Center, or hike the Platt Historic District.

Bringing a boat? Head straight for the open waters of the Arbuckle recreation area. The 2,350-acre Lake of the Arbuckles and additional lands are popular with water skiers.

There are six different campgrounds in the region. If you鈥檙e after showers and hookups, head for year-round Buckhorn Campground and The Point Campground. Central Group Campground, Cold Springs Campground, and Rock Creek Campground offer rustic camping.

Notable campgrounds

  • Buckhorn Campground: Nestled on the eastern side of Lake of the Arbuckles, Buckhorn offers year-round camping with amenities like flush toilets and showers.
