The lakes are down low, cool and inviting. A dam regulates the lake level for the convenience of visitors in the summer. There is a Nature Center housed in a natural stone building dating back into the late 1930s (Phone 918 465 5154) and Heritage Hall where you'll find live animals, exhibits and information on Indians, outlaws and explorers.
The Belle Starr Lodge has 20 rooms. One of them sleeps two, and the other 19 sleeps four.
There are now 26 cabins with fireplaces and kitchens. 18 one-bedroom cabins will each sleep four kids comfortably. The 8 two-bedroom cabins will sleep up to 6. Pets and smoking are allowed, but only in specified cabins.
There are also 117 improved camp sites, and 51 primitive camp sites. There is also an RV camp, one for the tenter, and one camp just for the equestrian. There is room outside for camp chairs.
Shady pavilions are complemented by shady trees. The park even has a swimming pool, YEH! The pool is open from Memorial Day through Labor Day weekends. The pool is more popular than the lake except for the most derring-devil-doers.
The boys will naturally splash right on through lunch time even though a bribe of steak and potatoes with brown gravy is offered. The level of the lake is regulated by a dam so that the water can be lowered during the winter months for a thorough cleaning.
For the more adventurous soul, canoes, yakanoes, can be rented, along with umbrella-ed paddle boats for the lake. Bicycles are available too.

The office handling registrations is in the
little store in the area on your right (coming up
from Wilburton). The keyword here is little. Basically, the only food you will find there falls in the category of SNACKS. Do not expect to come here and leisurely fill up your larder.
However, there is a Silver Dollar restaurant down
by the lake. It offers catering services
and a full-menu. Best of all, it serves 3 meals per day, 7 days a week. Their specialty is
"a chicken-fried steak so big it hangs off the plate." They also serve steak, shrimp and sandwiches.
Included in the 12-mile network of hiking trails is a nature walk, and a backpacking trail which introduces you to the very rugged terrain.
