A bit Underwhelming
2021年5月 • 好友
Pretty but roads were terrible to the lake especially/ Needs a lot if love- looked like good camping facilities though including RV and tents.

Getting Away from it all
2021年3月 • 家庭
This state park is truly off the beaten path. Tent camping in March is a little cold during the night. But it was definitely worth it. Our family enjoyed seeing the rock formations, exploring the overlook and lake area, and getting unplugged for a few days. Make sure you come with all your supplies no Wal mart near by and nearest town with a store is about 23 miles away.

Stickers, FLIES, and No Wi-Fi, OH MY!
2020年10月
We had reservations here (unfortunately) twice on our recent trip to and from Colorado.

FIRST STAY - Unique park that offers campers a view of petrified wood and and idea of what a "Jurassic Park" was like. The limited number of RV sites had recently been re-graveled and there are nice shaded tent sites along a creek bed that has dried up because of the drought. The town of Ft. Supply is a good 20+ mile distance, so come prepared.

Reviews mentioned the fly problem here and it persisted for us as well. This could be controlled by emptying the uncovered, overflowing trash bins more often and spraying around them. In addition, the sticker burrs in our dog's paws was a nightmare for walking her. We did not get to witness the "star show" due to the bright moon. We also had no cell service, but cell towers were visible from the park.

SECOND STAY - It was worse than the first. The flies were absolutely annoying and seemed to have multiplied. We did not even venture outside this stay due to the invasion of the flies you could see swarming from the window. I swatted almost 50 flies in our RV after waking.

Please go stay elsewhere so you are able to enjoy the outdoors. We will never plan another stay here.

Land of the flies!
2020年7月
Get ready for invasion of the flies!!!!! This campground smells and the flies are awful because who knows when the dumpsters have been emptied that sit right in the middle of the camp sites. The charcoal grills are covered because of a burn ban which is understandable. Unless you like to hike in over 100 degree weather there is nothing else to do here. If you can hold out for the night skies it’s amazing! Park WiFi is okay at times but there is no service here! Okay for one night but suffering through more than that isn’t advisable.

Nice place to stay, and gorgeous night sky
2020年6月
We chose this park coming back into Oklahoma from Colorado due to the night sky. It is amazing to view with the darkness all around. Park well maintained with picked up sites. Volunteer there very helpful and friendly. we reserved online at travelok.com. two months in advance. There is very little else in this area.

This region of Oklahoma is geologically different than most of the rest. It’s close to the volcano field of New Mexico. Their is a reservoir. There is a nice mix of short and long hikes. The wildlife is abundant. I love the rock formations, the petrified wood, and the plants.

Amazing Galaxy viewing!

The dark sky is amazing!!!!! . It would be nice if the campers followed protocol and turned outside lights off when they are inside. Very peaceful.! All fires are prohibited grills included! Make sure you bring everything you need and a full tank of gas! The camp ground is very basic

There 25 reseverable site with Elctric and H2O about 1/4 of there could accomodate 35 plus rig.No low riders. Fist come first stay, 25 tent sites some you could boondock in. Bath house average to fair. Dump station easy access with water. Just starting an exhibit of areas wild life and history, left them some dinosaurs books for the kiddos. We were there middle of November over a weekend just us and 3 other campers. During peak season reservation esp for weekend and electric. Large play area for the kids. Some sites have covered picnic tables. About 25٪ of sites had some shade from tree. Picnic and boating for day use only near. Reservoir below boat ramp! Close to many interesting points of interests. Large group site with cabins. There's also in Equestrian section. Closest town 35 mile away.

The perfect base camp for outward adventures.
2019年10月
The park itself is small and doesn't offer terribly much to do in and of itself; but with a little driving (+/- 30m) there are DAYS worth of adventures one can access.

For starters, the park is isolated. The nearest gas station is 27 miles away in Boise City. Located on Lake Etling; the park is about 14 miles south of Black Mesa itself. Not a long drive, and a beautiful one at that. Staying in the third week of October I expected the park to be mostly empty. It was not. Mid-week the park was about 40% full, and pushed 90% Fri-Sun. The water level was low, so we spent almost no time at the lake itself, but we ran out of time (5 days) before we could experience everything we wanted.

The Park: The park seems a little neglected honestly. The restrooms are in need of repair/updating, some signage is worn or missing, access roads are dangerous without truck-like ground clearance. For as busy as they are, I expected a little better upkeep.

That said, the main road through the park is paved and in good condition. The shower water is hot (if sporadic in pressure), and the camp host was knowledgeable and helpful. They also sell firewood and ice on site, so you don't have to take a 54 mile trip for a $2 bag of ice in Boise City. WIFI is also available as cell service is spotty at best; you'll struggle to facetime, but you can message the outside world or check e-mail with ease.
Camp sites are well spaced with some clustered for large/multiple party camping. Water spigots are inconveniently placed for tent campers, but handy for those in trailers or RV's. There are a few pull through spots, but most are back-in. Tent campers trade some convenience for unique locations, like campsites within rock formations.

The park has multiple access roads to picnic/day use areas and the lake, as well as two hiking trails; one of which is a mile long (Vista View) and provides several overlook vantages of the park. The other is perhaps just over half a mile long, and is spotted with bird feeders and caves, as well as a "petrified forest" at the trail head. (In reality it's about a dozen petrified logs chunks, two of which have been erected in concrete, and one of which is hollow; my kids loved it even if it wasn't a full on petrified forest)
The rock formations are the real stars in the area; huge formations of more rock types than I'm familiar with (I'm no geologist), with towers and congregations that are impressive and imposing. Just north of the park are the Wedding Party formation and the Old Maid formation. Natural and man-made caves are all over the place; some small enough only for little kids; some big enough for whole RV's.

Keep an eye out for inhospitable natives though; cactus is everywhere as are thorns, stickers, and burrs. Rattle snakes are supposed to live in the area, and there are plenty of potential lodgings for them, though we didn't see any. We DID see mule deer, prong horn, prairie dogs, and copious birds.

Independent of the park itself is the aforementioned Blake Mesa, the adjacent Allosaurus tracks, the tri-state marker, dinosaur quarry (really just one bone replica), and Picture Canyon in Comanche National Grasslands, CO.

As it is; Black Mesa State Park is perfectly situated for several days' adventures within about a 45 min drive, with the bonus of hot showers and a lake should one feel like staying "home" for a day.

Clean and well-kept
2019年8月 • 夫妻情侣
Nice tent camping area and one of the best hikes I’ve been on in Oklahoma. We only stayed one night, but the facilities were clean and well-kept and the sky was gorgeous (in-between thunderstorms, lol). The tent camping areas have many options for putting your tent down, are decent-sized, and while they could be more spread out (or at least farther from the RVs), that’s personal taste so I can’t hold it against them.

My only real nitpicks are the lighting and the camp options. The lighting in the camp area is the BRIGHTEST I have ever seen in a campsite and since we came with the intention of trying to stargaze, that did a great job of destroying our night vision. Additionally, we spent a long time trying to find the dispersed campsites that a ranger told us about, but had to give up so we would have time to actually get our tents set up before weather hit. Again though, the campsite proper is great if that’s what you’re looking for and the hike was a treat.
