Osage Hills State Park

Sand Creek looking north

You can almost hear echoes of the Native past through the trees. Nestled in lush rolling hills, this area was once an Osage Indian settlement. When you've settled down in the comfort of your quiet, private cabin, you'll feel as if you've truly gotten away from it all. Osage Hills State Park is the gateway to Oklahoma's Tallgrass Prairie.

Osage Hills State Park offers 1,100 acres with picnic tables and shelters, 20 RV campsites and 8 cabins, swimming pool, hiking trails, ball field and tennis court. Abundant fishing for bass, crappie, catfish and perch can be found in Lookout Lake, or in Sand Creek at the south end of the park. Area has good opportunities for fall foliage viewing. Average cabin rate $$$ (65-100).

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
December 31 Favorite Place by Jannette
We have been staying one week every summer for so long it feels like we are comming to our place everytime we visit the park. The cabins are well maintained and the rangers make us feel welcome. The office staff knows us by name which makes us feel welcome every year. We make our reservation on our way out of the park for next years vacation.
October 19 Osage is a precious jewel by CimmaronCowgirl
Delightful little cabins, beautiful bridge (gotta look from just off the road), heavy-beam pavillion....the WPA really outdid themselves on this lovely Park. And THE nicest folks...SO helpful. This is our second visit. Cannot wait to return.

There is a lot of good climbing out on the bluffs
May 10 Great camping experience for our girls. by Cissy
The grounds were clean, the rangers very friendly and helpful, the restrooms and showers clean, and we felt safe. Our 1 and 3 year old daughters loved the playgrounds and the hiking trails. We enjoyed this first time camping experience as a family and look forward to doing it again at Osage Hills.
March 23 Loved our visit
Went with my husband for a weekend camping trip. The grounds were clean and the woods beautiful. We saw several deer in the morning, both bucks and does!! We will definitely return! P.S. the park ranger was really nice!
March 11 Lots to do in such a small park! by Robert
From Lookout Lake, the hiking trails, mountsin bike trails, and Sand Creek there is somthing for everyone! Bring your RV or tent, fish the lake or creek, take a walk with family and friends on a trail, and enjoy this beautiful park. It is well worth the trip.
August 17 One of our favorite State Parks by Chuck and Shela Davis
We just got back from two days at Osage Hills SP (Sun and Mon), we try and do a couple visits a year; its an easy drive from Tulsa The Staff and Park Ranger/s are as friendly as at any of the State Parks
August 8 Great Cub Scout Campout by MIke M
We camped in the group camp ground. It worked really well for us. We had probably 80 people more or less. Nearby bathrooms, hiking, fishing and excellent scenery. Not too far from Tulsa as well. Only issue was trash was overflowing the dumpster.
July 23 I love this place by Bryan Crump
Years ago I visited Pawhuska when they released the Buffalo and participated in a field ecology program through OCU. Pawhuska and Osage Hills is a beautiful area and there is so much wildlife it is amazing. I saw my first buck here when I was a child during an early dew covered morning and it is a memory I will hold forever.
May 3 Favorite vacation by kenziekylanmom
We took our kids on vacation to stay in a cabin and they loved it and said this is their favorite vacation and they have been all over Hawaii, Florida, Colorado, NM, etc but this was their favorite vacation!!! WE love it and the rangers were so nice and very helpful. I even blogged about it http://wedemeyerfamily.blogspot.com/2010/05/little-cabin.html

This park is the cleanest and best-run my family has camped at. We loved it. I would recommend it to all types of groups. We look forward to going back and staying longer.
May 6 A great family place by Garrett S.

We alwas stay at the group camp area and we always comment on the extremely clean facilities. The whole park is absolutly beautiful and very family oriented. I would like to think the staff that keeps th park facilities so clean.
November 7 WONDERFUL! by Stevens Family
Osage is one of our favorite camp grounds, especially in the Fall. The wild life is spectacular, the trails are fun, the outlook point is beautiful and the Office staff and Rangers are so very nice and professional. The bathrooms are super clean and even heated in cooler months! We have two great nephews, ages 9 and 5 and they love going there as much as we do.
October 13 A great local getaway by JB
We were thrilled to find the great hiking trails within a short drive from Skiatook. The Park Rangers were especially pleasant & helpful.
July 15 Beautiful Setting by Kathy Niemeyer
