“Too bad about the weather”

Reviewed Nov 06, 2018

Overall Rating

The road on the way in is rough, so add a little time to your travels if you don't want to lose a tooth. There are only two 50-amp spots so reservations are a must if you want one of them rather than 30-amp. The layout in the RV area is weird (our space was easy) but we wondered how other campers would have parked had there been more of them. The back of our site #24 was underneath a bright street lamp. The tent sites we saw were very nice, some of them really cool among the trees and boulders.

The park is very pretty, and we would have liked it even more if we'd had good weather, but we got skunked on that. Add to that the fact that we had no usable cell reception whatsoever and only a teeny bit of wifi near the ranger cabin, and it made our four days seem longer than they were, unfortunately.

There are some trails in the park which, while not long, are nice, and you can get plenty of walking on the park roads if you like. It is also close to the 8.4 mile Black Mesa Summit trail, leading to the highest point in Oklahoma, which we did on the one day it didn't rain on us. It is not close to any other towns or services, so come prepared for your stay. The showers had plenty of hot water.

Dates of our stay: 10/7-10, 2018

“Lovely, Interesting Geology”

Reviewed Sep 20, 2017

Overall Rating

We arrive to Black Mesa State Park near Kenton, OK in early September.

It is hot, at 91 degrees in the shade. (pant, pant, pant)

When the sun goes behind clouds the mosquitoes and no-see-ums come out to play. Slap, slap, slap.

We chose tent site 7, right on the water. Lovely rock formations. Plenty of space between sites, and a ring, table, and grill.

We can hear generators for RVs on the hill above.

Nicely wide sites, we do not have to unhook the toad. Nice!

Evening temps of 60 degrees with 77% humidity.

We fall asleep to lowing cattle, calling coyotes, and serenading insects (lots of insects)!

And two neighbors have spotlights on ALL NIGHT LONG! Really?!? Ugh.

Shower valves must be manually engaged during entire use. Take a wire or cord to jury rig, or figure out another way to clean between your cheeks! 😜
