  • I felt $10/ 5 per person for day use was a bit steep. The beach access is steep as others have mentioned . The trail was lovely with spring flowers. Views and lake access were disappointing. This is d...  more »
  • Park staff are very nice. Stayed in a shelter. Only a few have room for 1 or 2 tents. (1, 34, 35, 33, 32, 18, 27) stayed in shelter 34. Shelter was nice for food prep and storing. Great hiking trail. ...  more »
  • We stayed here for several weeks when we moved to the area, although they made me move every two weeks due to some law. Has a nice sandy swimming area. Some places are difficult or steep to get to the...  more »

  • So far, this has been our favorite State Park; it's close the the metro-plex along with lots of camping and recreation options. The trails are a lot of fun to hike and explore and if you want to fish the offer loaner poles if you don't have your own (or forgot them at home).
  • We reserved the premium water campsite @$17 a dat and they have a proper designated campsite for each reservation. The view is awesome from the campsite (sites 167 to 172). Without loosing privacy and camp experience, you feel safe with park police monitoring the place now and then. The restrooms were kept clean. A very good place for trailing, biking, kayaking, swimming, fishing, boating etc. You will never regret it. Unfortunately the day we went, swimming was closed due to water levels and the official suggested Burns runs east/west in Oklahoma (about 4 miles from Eisenhower State Park) which is a very nice place as well. The drive over the Dension Dam across the lake is very scenic and fun. Overall a good experience and we are planning to go again during Fall.
  • We stayed at Eisenhower because my grandpa lives in Denison, it was close and a good price. We knew nothing else about it. We were surprised how much we loved being there! Campfires each night and meeting new friends was amazing! The swim area is steep to get down but so beautiful and worth it. The bathrooms are well maintained for their age and clean. We also loved the junior ranger program and got our first SP badges. We stayed 2 weeks in the camper area with full hook ups. We are so glad we visited this park and would definitely go back!
  • Huge state park. Well maintained and friendly staff. Camped 3 nights over the holiday weekend. They have many sites to choose from for overnights and day parks. Some designated swimming areas are closed due to flooding at times but there are other ways to get your lake fix. By way of boat, floatation device...rent a kayak or SUP. You can also get a day pass to visit a different site near by. Just have fun and watch out for the gators!!
  • Spiders abound in this park, but, they are harmless ones. Some tarantulas also. Restrooms were not so clean for my wife's taste. Overall a nice park. Lots of chiggers and we should have replenished on our OFF! spray. It was right after the rains, and no freeze this year, so, lots of bug bites. Memorable experience overall.
