Looking for a lakeside vacay that you can share with your favorite furry friend? Rocky Point Campground at Fort Gibson is the pawfect place!
There are 63 sites in all to choose from. 59 of these are single tent sites with electrical hookups, as well as an outdoor table and campfire ring for between $18 to $20 per evening depending on location. There are also three primitive sites available on a first-come, first-served basis at just $14 per night. Modern restrooms and shower facilities are found close to most of these sites. There's also a dump station free for guests who've come with a recreational vehicle. Forgot some supplies at home, or just want to grab some pizza? Paw on over to the park store, located right by the entrance gate.
Got a water-loving woofer at the end of that leash? Rocky Point provides a deluxe concrete boat ramp that's free for guests who have paid their Rocky Point overnight fees. This ramp puts guests into the waters of Fort Gibson Lake, an almost 20,000-acre body of water that sees both powered and non-powered vessels throughout the seasons. If you're looking to bring a boat along for an overnight stay to Rocky Point, make sure you've got up-to-date registration on your boat before arrival. Canines are allowed to ride along with boat-faring guests, provided they're kept safe and on a leash through the expedition. (Don't forget to bring a doggy life jacket along!)
A swimming beach can also be found inside of Rocky Point, providing visitors with a chance to splash around or maybe just catch some rays on the sand. The area is regularly staffed with lifeguards so that you can feel safe swimming in these waters. Sorry dog lovers, but the swimming beach is strictly off-limits to canines.
The areas around Rocky Point are also popular for hunting during the winter months. Trappers and hunters search for species like white-tailed deer, squirrels, and a few species of local waterfowl. This sport requires state permits, so make sure to obtain yours before planning a hunting trip here. A free permit is also required for campers to use the boat facilities and public beach.
