Spending the weekend enjoying the great outdoors means different things to different people. This is especially true for tent campers. If you have ever hiked a trail and set up camp for the night, chances are your expectations are different from those folks that load up the car with all the amenities from home and look for a place with good wifi reception. We hope the following information will help you decide on whether or not tent camping at Lake Eufaula Campground is right for you
Hints for Tenters
Looking for a variety of activities? You have come to the right place. As a private campground we offer a pool, miniature golf, kayak rental and four fishing ponds. The new city bike trail that is located on the north side of the campground should be close to opening by the 4th of July. The scavenger hunt is available at anytime but on holiday weekends we also have group activities and crafts for the kids.
What can I expect at my site? Our tent sites come with water and electricity, a fire pit and a picnic table. Portable grills are available for weekend use if you have not brought your own.
What if I have a boat or jet ski? Most of our sites either have a place for parking watercraft or there is a spot nearby. Unfortunately the boat ramp to the creek is best suited for canoes and kayaks only. The city park is 5 minutes away and does have a free ramp for launching larger boats.
How much space is on each site? Our 18 dollar a night fee covers one tent and up to 4 people over age 3. You can add an extra tent or extra person for five dollars more per night. Most sites will accomidate two tents and two vehicles.
What can you tell me about your location and availability? Most weekends, tenters prefer a site on the creek. We have 4 sites in that location which offers the large community fire ring and and a nice view of the creek. That being said the sites do back up to a property that does house RV's and campers. We encourage our tenting guests to explore the pond area before deciding the campground is not enough in the woods for their taste. We do not have gators in the retreat center but do have some great views, pond fishing,plenty of birds and very few people. On holiday weekends we host tenters in every available space. Some guests spend time on the lake while others enjoy the swimming pool, pond fishing and a nightly campfire. Book early for a premium tent site on a holiday weekend but be sure to check with us if you have waited until the last minute. We may have something available.
What about my pets? We do have a restriction against Pit Bulls and American Bull dogs. We also do not allow dogs to be tied at a campsite when owners are not present. Please be considerate of other guests and do not bring dogs likely to disrupt everyone's sleep.
Can guests come to my campsite? The campground has a 5 dollar day use fee for fishing, swimming, mini golf and other campground amenities. If you plan to have guests join you for a meal only please let us know when you check in. Tenters can use the pavilion during their stay if it open but to host a party there is an additional fee.
