THE POINT CAMPGROUND (OK) CHICKASAW NRA
OVERVIEW The Point Campground is located at the fun-filled Lake of the Arbuckles, which is considered a recreational oasis in south-central Oklahoma. As part of the Chickasaw National Recreation Area, the Point impresses visitors with its diversity of natural resources. The area's unique plants, spring waters and geological formations are unlike any in the surrounding territory. Explore the prairie-landscape for a chance to see bison, white-tailed deer, opossum, gophers or black-tailed jackrabbits. RECREATION Hikers, birdwatchers and wildflower enthusiasts enjoy exploring this diverse ecosystem. The streams and lakes cater to boaters, swimmers, and anglers, and the Multi-Use Trail is enjoyable for hikers, bikers and horseback riders. Hunting is also permitted in varying seasons. FACILITIES The Point offers more amenities than most of its neighboring campsites, including electric and water hookups. It's great for RV, trailer or tent camping. NATURAL FEATURES Chickasaw lies in a zone where the eastern deciduous forest and western prairies converge. The park's flora and fauna represent both environments, as well as a unique transition environment. Lake of the Arbuckles is the largest lake in the park covering 2,350 acres. NEARBY ATTRACTIONS Try Little Niagara, a favorite freshwater swimming hole. The Travertine Nature Center is a wonderful resource to view nature exhibits, meet live animals on display and listen to rangers' presentations. If visitors are in need of supplies, groceries or boat rentals, head to the neighboring city of Sulphur.
