Okmulgee & Dripping Springs State Park, Oklahoma. NO Longer a State Park, They are now owned and operated by the City of Okmulgee. and renamed Okmulgee & Dripping Springs Lake & Recreation Area.

"The City has been working hard to make the transition smooth for everyone and with little effect on our customers. We will continue to be your camping "getaway", your reunion location or your weekend fun spot. Thank you for supporting the parks!"

 Located near Okmulgee, I like to call these parks "two great parks in one nice area". The parks are actually separate but only by a 3 mile turn around the bend and both parks have nice little lakes from which they were named; Dripping Springs Lake, and Okmulgee Lake.

All campsites are first-come, first-serve.
Primitive sites are $12/night and RV sites range from $16-$20/night

 Dripping Springs lake is Oklahoma's first Trophy Bass Lake, and has 1,050 surface acres, Okmulgee Lake has 650 acres, either lake offers excellent fishing. The Lakes themselves differ is depth with Dripping Springs more of a shallow lake and on more of a flat shoreline. Okmulgee Lake is more of a wooded, rough lake with an old dam that is listed on the Register of National Historic Places for its WPA construction.

 We enjoyed the Hickory Point RV area at Okmulgee State Park. The park is in a nice location if you need somewhere to stay close enough to major highways 75, 40, 44, but off the beaten path enough to feel like the middle of nowhere. The park is very well maintained, very clean, and very well patrolled so watch your speed and enjoy your stay.

 Okmulgee hosts an annual 3 day Pecan Festival in June, and was a 1989 Guinness World Recorder for a 40 foot diameter pecan pie.
