The Hugo Lake Group Camp is a large, grassy campground in a forested expanse of southeast Oklahoma. The camp is perched along the banks of Hugo Lake, providing guests with plenty of recreational opportunities.

Natural Features:

Hugo Lake dam is located on the Kiamichi River, 18 river miles upstream from its confluence with the Red River. The dam, completed in 1974, provides flood control, water supply and fish and wildlife management for nearby communities. It also provides a recreational oasis for outdoor enthusiasts of all types.


There are always fish to be caught at Hugo Lake. From early sand bass and slab crappie to late season fall bass, anglers will always find opportunities. Hugo Lake also provides excellent catfishing during the summer.

The lake area offers plenty of hunting opportunities, with over 25,000 acres of land available. Bow hunting is permitted in and around most of the park areas. Kiamichi Park features an archery practice range and a 3,000-acre Quality Deer Management Area.

Wildlife around the lake includes waterfowl, bobwhite quail, dove, whitetail deer, mink, fox and beaver.

The large parks and miles of paved roads are ideal for biking, jogging, hiking or horseback riding. Raccoon Road in Kiamichi Park provides nine horse stalls for equestrian campers.


Hugo Lake Group Camp includes four large campsites, which can accommodate up to 25 guests each. A large picnic shelter, playground and swimming beach make the campground perfect for large parties, youth trips or family functions.

A number of historical attractions are located near Hugo Lake, including Native American remnants, Civil War headquarters, churches and schools. Visit the lake website for more information.
