Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
May 27 Swimming Beach by J. Whary, Park Manager
Oasis State Park does not have a swimming beach as no swimming or wading is allowed. Pond is for fishing only. Also, there is no primative camping, however, there are 10 developed tent sites and 13 developed sites with electricity.
November 21 Very well laid out and very clean
The way you all did the fishing pond was extremly wonderful. Keep up the good work
