January 30 Elephant Rock Area by GSawyer
Great facilities, excellent sites, near shoreline, and Great hook-ups. Will stay here in the near future.
October 8 Buzzards Roost Campground by Chuck
We stayed at Buzzards Roost campground in June of 2014. we have camped from Maine to Washington, from Canada to Galveston TX. This the best campground we have ever stayed in. The personnel were very, very helpful, from helping with hookups to fishing tips. Camp site had a very large concrete slab to park the frailer. close to Ardmore OK. will stay there as often as I can. Photos show beautiful camp sites with large pad. Wonderful experience.
May 27 Beautiful Lake by jldon585
We really enjoyed our visit this past weekend to Lake Murray. The only downside was all the trash at the campsite when we arrived and then the loud, trashy people that set up camp next to us. We camped on the primitive camping side of the lake down Lem Roberts Road past RC Flying field. What a beautiful little beach we camped at but like I said the trash...OMG people should really try to clean up after themselves and consider the persons who are coming after them. There is an utter disrespect for the environment and the hard work that others put in to creating such a beautiful place to get away. I suggest that the park rangers put up more signs and patrol that side of the lake a little better.
April 4 Incredible! by happyrhino
We found a glowing sword, slayed a dragon and saved the Universe ten times over. I have to say, other than traveling with the Doctor, THIS was the best time of my life!
September 6 One of the most beautiful lakes in Okl
I grew up in the area and visited the park when most of it was still fairly primitive, it is much better now. I try to camp there at least every two years. Elephant Rock campground is my favorite area.
June 11 Awesome vacation destination by Paulina
Beautiful clear water! Nicely maintained campgrounds. 2nd time camping here. Will definitely plan on coming back here many more times. Very nice place to escape to from Michigan!
May 25 ATV Park by Slyhuntr
Our first trip to the trails. AWESOME! We will be back. Wish I had discovered this years ago.
December 28 Beautiful and friendly place to stay by Shana
This is my first family vacation. My children enjoyed the hiking and playing in the snow. There are many trails to travel and the scenery was beautiful. The staff was amazing and caring. The lady who took our reservation stayed on the phone with me to make sure we arrived at the place safely. We were lost and she directed us and cared about of safety. Thank you! After our arrival we felt comfterable and cozy. The cabin was perfect. The room came with cable which was great for end of the day and more family bonding before we drifted to sleep peacefully and relaxed. I have no complaints. I will be back. If it snows again and timing is right I will be back for it. I am from the Houston area. This summer I can not wait to go fishing and all the other activities that are available. I will always remember our time here. I always want this cabin each time I come.

September 22 Great Park by Robin
We stayed in the cabins by the lodge. Everyone was very nice and helpful, and the lake is beautiful. The lake is so clear that you can see fish swimming by. My kids had a great time with the water sports and putt putt golf. My only 2 complaints are: there is not a boat ramp at the lodge and the park does not allow tent camping.
June 21 park ranger alert by radmurrbrat
I have been going to this lake since I was a boy and the last two years we have been harrased by several park rangers when we arent even doing anything wrong, they have even gone as far as accusing my dad of being drunk when he had not one drop of alcohol. lake is great just be aware of the rangers around the lake and there eagerness to make an arrest or write a ticket
May 6 Poor Service by Jeffrey
Mom made reservations well in advance, told them she was in a wheelchair and were told they had handicap cabins, found out just days before our trip they had put her in a regular cabin. They showed no concern. That is POOR SERVICE.
May 5 Great place by Marty F Cole
Me and my family have been going to lake murry for over forty years.My grand father would take us there in the summer to camp and fish we love it.
April 21 Wonderful Place to Kick Back and Chill by Tammy
We camp here every sprin, summer, and fall. It is a beautiful lake with great views. Always have felt safe there. The rates are reasonable and the enviorment is enjoyable. We tent camp and always set up at Martians Landing. Our dogs also love it there.
April 16 A place of balance by Janice Marie Green
Whenever I need to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life...I spend my time at Lake Murray at the tower, on the pier, beside the lake receiving the balance needed to continue.
April 3 very dissapointed
the park rangers were very unproffessional they talk to everyone like they were a criminal.
December 31 Beautiful Atv Park by bj3350
Lake Murray has a great RV park that has beautiful trails leading down to the lake and winding thru the trees. The single biggest downfall is that some politian closed the night time riding which in the summer months is the best time to ride.
September 6 Very Disappointed
We had to cancel our reservations within 24 hours of making them which was still 2 weeks out from the date we were supposed to go. Unfortunately, the weekend we were supposed to go, they still charged us for our whole weekend as if we had never cancelled and now no one answers the phone or emails. Very disappointed!!
July 22 checking out the camp site by okie
Was checking out the camp sites(to see which one we will bring our camper to), and came to one called elephant (something), they would not let us enter without paying $4.00 per person.(Non-refundable for a five minute drive through)I was very disappointed because all the other camp sites didnt charge to view them. Love the park, it is beautiful.
Park needs to stay open all night as they used to. Its too hot to ride during day. Unfortuately we dont go as much as we used to because they started closing gates at dark
July 7 Our favorite park by mdd12
We go to Lake Murray every summer. Its clean and the best in Oklahoma.
June 25 not enough cabins
need to open all cabins back up--unloading ramp at lodge been closed now 3 years
June 14 beautiful park! by SGR
perfect for tent camping. nice, clean grounds, trees everywhere. we felt very safe and had many options for recreation. the lake is perfect for swimming. there was not a playground in our campground and we did not anticipate pay showers, so we had to go get some quarters! other than that it was pretty perfect. will definitly be back!
March 27 Excellent Park by Paul Brian
This is a very nice state park in Oklahoma. It has a great bike trail and the view from the tower over the marina is wonderful. I took some great photos of Lake Murray.
May 4 miles of beautiful trails! by justinjune28
Lake Murray has many multi-use trails that are clean and on a busy day you may still be the only person on them. If you like to walk, trail run, or mountain bike, Lake Murray is a great destination. When I get out of school this weekend and go back home, I plan on spending a lot of time at this lake!
