Raymond Gary State Park, Oklahoma

 Located near Fort Towson, Raymond Gary State park is named after Oklahoma's first Governor to be born in Oklahoma since statehood, Raymond D. Gary. The park is small but located in a very scenic part of the state in the southeast corner, close to the Texas border.

 Raymond Gary State Park has a small 390 acre lake for fishing, swimming, and slow boating. Cabins with a lakeside view look very nice to stay in and enjoy a fireplace glow. A Handicap  accessible fishing dock is also located on Lake Raymond Gary.

 Canoes, Paddleboats and Jon boats can all be rented and the lake has a speed limit so a relaxing time on the lake is possible.

 The RV area does have 10 full hookup sites and 9 with semi-modern hookups. The park is very quiet and it seems as though few people know it even exists. Tent sites are located throughout the park, and peace and quiet should not be a problem.

 Lake Raymond Gary.com website has good information. Southeastern Oklahoma is Kiamichi Country and their website has brochures and more information.
