Overview

Overview

Buckhorn area campgrounds are within close proximity to the Lake of the Arbuckles. Comfortable campsites and a lighthearted atmosphere makes this site an excellent place to camp.

The Lake of the Arbuckles was built in 1966 by the Bureau of Land Reclamation, and has been voted the best bass fishing in Oklahoma.

Boat ramps and docks are available throughout the 36 miles of shoreline. Look for wildlife like the red fox, bobcat, and opossum, and watch the trees for glimpses of flying squirrels.

Natural Features:

Set in the naturally diverse Chickasaw National Recreation Area, Buckhorn Campground is surrounded by unique flora, fauna and geological formations.

The hilly land is covered with partial prairie and partial forest, with natural springs cutting through spectacular rock formations.

Recreation:

Bring your boat or jet skis and cruise the lake, or pack your fishing rods to catch some of the state's finest bass, perch and crappies.

The area is most popular for water sports, but hiking and biking is a great way to explore the land and take in views of the lake.

Facilities:

Buckhorn is one of only two campsites in Chickasaw with electric hookups and water. It's an ideal location for families and friends ready for a mix of camping and boating. The D Loop of the campsite is open year-round.

Nearby Attractions:

Hike or bike on the unpaved Rock Creek Multi-Use Trail or head up Rock Creek for a visit to the Chickasaw Cultural Center. There, you can learn all about the Native Americans of the region through exhibits, videos and interactive displays.
