We visited twice this summer and will be coming back. Camp sites are clean with great shower facilities. Grandchildren loved the playground when they were not swimming or fishing.

Very clean and family friendly. Take a picnic. Water is clear for Oklahoma. Take some floaters. Also there is a lot of wildlife. We saw a bobcat, opossum, and Hawks.

The cove has ample parking and campgrounds all down the peninsula. A great hidden get away for a day or weekend! The Springs event center is up the road it is one of the hottest places to get married at.

Visited the Tall Chief Cove and there are plenty of picnic tables and toilet facilities. There is also a boat ramp that you can launch your boat for a small fee, think it was $5. There are plenty of hiking paths to discover.
