Lodging at the park, located just five miles south of Clayton, includes 30 reserveable RV sites. For those who enjoy the open air of outdoor tent camping, the park offers 60 first come first serve tent sites spread out between three camping areas, primitive cabins and two-bedroom cabins to fit your family’s needs. Tent camping is a perfect opportunity to watch the wildlife who frequent the park including deer, squirrels, raccoons and geese.  Clayton Lake State Park also offers five picnic pavilions, two boat ramps and four comfort stations with hot showers

If you’re looking for a restful getaway, look no further. The “no wake” 80-acre lake is open to fishermen and boaters, but no watersports are allowed to compliment the quiet nature of the park and local wildlife. In addition to a lighted boat and ADA accessible fishing dock, the park also has a swimming beach and playground.

Take a stroll along the water’s edge, wade through the rushing waterfalls, or bring a kayak to cross the lake’s still water. With a wide variety of trees lining the water’s edge, the beautiful foliage offers outdoor enthusiasts the chance to reconnect with nature along the park’s hiking trails.

Nearby, guests can visit the Ouachita National Forest, Sardis Lake or the Choctaw National Capital in Tuskahoma which is home to a museum and the annual Choctaw Nation Labor Day Festival that draws people from all over the country.
