  • This lake is more like a large pond. The water is very dirty and the beaches were trashy. The swimming areas were ok and good for a short afternoon swim. As far as skiing and tubing, if you don't mind...  read more »
  • An ok lake..definitely not the best in Oklahoma. Not worth the $7 entrance fee just to swim or day camp. Water is dirty brown. Good lake if you have a boat. Camping areas are always so crowded in the ...  read more »
  • Our family took a boat out on Arcadia Lake for the first time. As complete novices, we had a good first experience boating at Lake Arcadia. It was big enough to fish or boat, but not too big to get lo...  read more »
  • We stayed at Scissor Tail and loved it. Beautiful sites and very quiet, we were the only ones there. We took advice from other posters and had an additional 50' hose and y adapter. No sewer but there is a dump station on the way out. Deer came to the area every night. We would definitely stay here again!
  • This is the 4th time I've stayed at this lake and the more you complain the more things get out of hand here. The speeding of cars and pickups is out of this world. Just this morning our 5th wheel was rocking so bad thought were having a earthquake. But all it was was a car driving so fast in the park hit our water hose and tore it from the trl. And water hookup. And again we had to call the cops out from edmond for the cost of staying here at this lake they can't afford to have the,cops on site. So damage done to my 5th wheel I have to take care of it. But I'll never be back here again.
  • Stayed at Scissor Tail park, its quiet and only for RV/overnight camping so keeps traffic down. We liked it. It is not full hook up, no sewer. Second the water taps are very far away and are shared, meaning you may need a Y adapter. We ended up going to Walmart and buying an additional sixty feet of hose just to have water. Fortunately Super Walmart is very nearby. Make sure you have plenty of sewer hose for the clean out as well, otherwise you may come up short.
  • Central State campground has 10 full hook up sites. And about 100 electric 50 amp sites with shared water. Shared water means there our water faucets randomly strewn throughout the campsites. Some campsites are over 200 yards from the nearest spicket. So if you're using one of these sites choose wisely. In general, the campground is well run and well patrolled by the Edmond department. One negative is litter in the campsite left by campers. The other negative is the reservation process, a site can be reserved and yet not occupied, seems like this is a common practice for people to reserve a site on Wednesday or Thursday and yet not occupy it until Friday so that they have it for the weekend.
  • Nice campground with huge level sites especially if you are in one of the pull thrus! We parked our 36' motor home, 16' trailer and a jeep all on one spot. We enjoyed the beautiful lake and walking on the trails.
