CLAYTON LAKE STATE PARK
This 500 acre park provides a restful hideaway and offers a quiet getaway. The park features full service RV sites and tent camping areas, along with primitive cabins, one family-style two bedroom cabin, picnic tables, group picnic shelters, comfort stations with showers, and boat ramps. Clayton Lake State Park is an excellent location for fishing, boating, and ATVs. The park also offers an ADA accessible fishing dock, playground, hiking trails, and swimming beach.
Located in southeastern Oklahoma, the park was established in 1955. It spans over 500 acres and includes a man-made lake. The area is known for its diverse flora and fauna as well as recreational activities such as fishing, boating, hiking trails and camping facilities.
The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) built many of the original structures during the Great Depression era. These include cabins that are still used today by visitors to enjoy their stay at this natural retreat.
In addition to outdoor recreation opportunities, it also houses significant archaeological sites with dinosaur tracks from millions of years ago discovered on-site.
Over time improvements have been made including adding more campsites along with modern amenities like restrooms/showers while maintaining environmental sustainability efforts throughout all operations within this state-owned property.
