E.K. left this review using the Directory software: - Passing thru and stopped for the night. There is no camp host, but security personnel drove thru campground several times. Personnel at facility gate and security personnel all very friendly and helpful. Fill out envelope at entrance, enclose your check and your done. We were only campers on site, but enjoyed lake view and all the Christmas decorations. Will come back.

Spent the most part of a week here in January. This is a very nice campground. A lot of empty spaces. Never saw anyone who looked like they were running or maintaining the campground. Filled out the form, wrote the check, put it in the drop box. But the campground is obviously well maintained. No facilities to speak of post. However, Walmart and a large number of dining establishments are just down the road in McAlester. Would recommend the Isle of Capri in Krebs, OK if you are into Italian food. This is one of the better military campgrounds.

We arrived here on a Sunday late afternoon. Nobody was here. A little difficult getting in the gate because of the weekend. Paid for the week on Monday morning (great price). Laundry room was buggy. Extremely quiet with just a few RV'ers coming and going during that time. Most spots were shady. This was a very nice place.

K.H. left this review using the Directory software: This is the best campground we have ever stayed at for the price, and one of the better ones at any price. Both bathrooms were immaculate and so was the laundry room. This place is one of the best kept secrets in military camping.

This was the first time we came up US75 normally we drive I35 to Springfield. I am sure glad we did the campground is great, we were met by 2 bucks and 8 Does just feeding on the grass as we park in spot 10 the geese came up looking for hand outs. After we got set up we seen an Eagle flying over the water looking for food, just soared around for a while. Now the hard part was getting checked in, we didn't see the drop box at the entrance so I called and got directions to MWR but they didn't say they were at equipment issue building (711). But all in all it was something to laugh about and have something to talk about at the evening meal. We used the Elk's in town and they had a great meal for the price in fact we had so much we had to take part of the meal with us, next time we split the meal. Small PX but who cares. My biggest complaint is about the previous campers, they left their trash inside the new BBQ's. As we walked around that is the biggest problem campers NOT cleaning up after themselves. If the Smart chapters wanted a place to hold a muster this would be a great place, 2 large BBQ pits, lot of tables for out side dinners or what ever. We I come back, you bet I will in fact I'll stay longer since I found out there a few things to see in the area. Only 4 campers now. Remember 25% off for golden age pass so that's $9.00 a night!

L.R. left this review using the Directory software: Arrived on a Sunday afternoon, thinking the deer hunters would be cleared out. But campground was still full, so went on down the road. First time I'd been there since the new truck & RV gate had been built, made entry and exit much easier.

We stopped here as a halfway point between St Louis and Oklahoma City, and we are really glad w did. During the day you might here the ammo testing, but it gets very quiet after that. We loved having all the wildlife around us. Mind you, we didn't come during deer hunting season. Very clean facilities, nice level back-in slabs (we seemed to pick the ONLY spot without sewer!), beautiful location on the lake. You want to try Brangus Feed Lot on George Nigh Hwy (Hwy 69) in McAlester...best steakhouse around but a bit pricey. Go at lunch when steaks run around $10 instead of $30 at night! The PX was small and had limited hours but had good emergency supply and the people working there were really friendly and helpful with local info.

It very clean, well maintained campground. Many of the RV's were moved in by MWR as rentals over the weekend. Close enough to McAlster for Walmart and good Restaurants. We did not drive throughtout the base, so cannot comment on more than seeing a very small PX that was not open on a Saturday. They do have a club that has a couple special meals and dancing each week. Will definetely try to map my way through this area for another stay.

Several full hookup sites are in an open area on cement slabs - accdeptable for any size rig, but all are back in sites. The rest of the sites are in amongst big oak trees with low, hanging branches. Good for a stop-over. Caution - campground fills up to overflow situation during deer hunting season.
