Overview

Sarge Creek Campground is situated along the banks of Kaw Lake in north central Oklahoma.

Most of the campsites here are shaded and visitors looking to camp with their horses or ride Kaw Lakes Five Fingers Equestrian Trail, will find Sarge Creek Campground to be very accommodating.

Natural Features:

The lake covers 17,000 surface acres and has 168 miles of shoreline. Completed in 1976, the dam and lake help provide a recreational oasis for outdoor enthusiasts of all types.

Recreation:

The lake and river are known for producing some of Oklahoma's largest catfish, as well as crappie, white bass and walleye, making it a popular destination for anglers.

Hikers and horseback riders are attracted to the beautiful trails along the eastern shore. The Eagle View Hiking Trail is approximately 12 miles long and runs between Osage Cove and Burbank Landing.

The Five Fingers Equestrian Trail extends from the Sarge Creek Cove Public Use Area to Burbank Landing.

Hunters' skills are tested with excellent populations of whitetail deer, turkey, quail, rabbit and squirrel. During the fall waterfowl seasons Kaw Lake often attracts large numbers of migrating ducks and geese.

During the winter visitors are likely to spot migrating bald eagles, as Kaw Lake has one of the biggest populations in the state.

Facilities:

Sarge Creek Campground offers 53 campsites with modern amenities like electric hookups, drinking water and flush toilets, including one large group campsite that can accommodate up to 60 guests. A boat ramp provides easy access to the lake.

Campsites 1-7 are available for equestrian camping, and horse pens are provided.

Nearby Attractions:

The area holds a number of historical sites, including several Native American settlements, archeological sites and the Pioneer Woman Museum.
