Visitor’s Guide: Eisenhower State Park


For Christmas Keltin and I purchased ourselves a new tent but we didn’t want to wait until spring to test it out so we decided to plan a winter camping trip to Eisenhower State Park on Lake Texoma. We decided on this state park in part due to the reviews in Best Tent Camping and partly on the trail maps.


Eisenhower has both tent camping sites and full hook up sites for RVs. We stayed in the Elm Point Camping Area that sits a top high bluffs overlooking the lake. These are tents site with water but no electricity. The sites have picnic tables and a fire pit. Within walking distance is a day use area and restroom/shower facilities. We had fun playing on the swings in the day use area.

Our campsite!

Unfortunately, we did not get to do nearly as much hiking as we would have liked to do because it had rained all the previous week and much of the trails were just mud pits. Instead we enjoyed our time at camp reading and journaling.

The drive and the hike were enough to wear Bear out!

The entrance fee to the park is $5 per adult for a day pass. Kids under 12 are free. Pets are welcome but must stay on a leash.

We enjoyed this park and want to go back to really test out the trails. What is your favorite state park?
