Buckhorn Campground (OK) Chickasaw Nra

Chickasaw National Recreation Area

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.

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 C Loop of the campsite is open year-round.
