Journey to southeastern Oklahoma for a picturesque getaway at Sardis Lake, where Potato Hills Central Campground offers fresh-air campsites shaded by blackjack oak, post oak and pines.

Natural Features:

The waters of Sardis Lake are sourced from Jackfork Creek, a tributary of the Kiamichi River. Surrounding terrain extends out into the rolling foothills of the Ouachita Mountains.


The lake is a popular fishing destination, with some of Oklahoma's largest species of prize bass. Catfish, walleye and crappie also reside in the lake.

Other water sports include jet skiing, swimming and canoeing; hiking is also a popular pastime.


All sites come with electric hookups. Young kids will enjoy the playground and everyone can make use of the accessible fishing dock.

A hiking trail is reachable from the campground, and hot showers are a welcoming amenity at the end of an eventful day.

Nearby Attractions:

More than 8,000 acres of public land around Sardis lake is available for wildlife watching and hunting. Additional camping is also available at Potato Hills South Campground.
