  • We love going to Douthat State Park. We went in July 2017 with out niece and nephew and had a wonderful time. We like to stay in the White Oak section as it has so much shade for summer to beat the he...  more »

  • We spent the week of July 23-30, 2017 at Douthat S.P. in cabin 17. We had a great time. The weather was good. We had rain one day out of the seven. I was able to go hiking on the well kept trails, we ...  more »
  • Good fishing but the battery on the boat I rented was dead within 15 minutes. I had to row back from the other end of the lake. The attendant said, "Sorry a lot of the batteries are dead even though they say 100% charged. I will tell my boss again". The cabins are clean and stocked well with dishes, stove, microwave and pots & pans. Take trashbags because they only provide 2 bags. I asked for more from the attendant at the store and she said we don't have anymore you will have to ride into town and buy some from Kroger. Our AC died and we had to leave a day early but the park manager said she will refund one night's stay. The cabin are decent but are overdue for a remodeling. However, the staff is very friendly and courteous. There are a lot of great hiking and biking. The lake is fantastic and well stocked with fish. If you like to fish with minnows, bring some because there are none to be found within 50 miles. All in all we had a great time and will definitely go back again!
  • One of my favorite places in the world! I have been visiting Douthat for the past 10 years and loved every visit! there are all kinds of trails for biking and hiking as well as a lake that is great for fishing! If you don't like camping, then the cabins are a wonderful option!
  • It's a nice place but it was very cold when I went so I didn't get to do much.
  • We stayed in cabin 10 efficiency. In my opinion best location of all their cabins. Sucks that one has to pay $8 per day to fish.
  • Nice trails. The cabins were a little small. We were supposed to be in a 6 person cabin, but there was only room for 4 to sleep comfortably. I would definitely go back if there wasn't a better state park only an hour from the house. The kids explorer packs were a neat idea, but they were missing some items.
