Double Creek Cove

Double Creek

Starting to plan your summer vacation? a road trip? need a place to park your camper/rv? Just look south of Nowata on Oologah Lake and you will find Double Creek Cove, it is sure to fit the bill. That is, if you are looking for very reasonable fees and scenic camping. The campsites with electric include a picnic table, a fire ring and cooking grill. If you enjoy roughing it, then there are primitive campsites. Restrooms are available but no showers.

Camp Sites

I have been out to Double Creek Park in the early morning and have seen Wild Turkeys and Deer walking about. The day I took these pictures it was a early warm Spring Day and the birds were singing. It was very quite. I imagine that it would be a great place to get away from it all. Check back in the Summer for more pictures.

I understand that Oologah lake is one of the best fishing lakes in Oklahoma. You might want to spend some time kicking back with the fishing pole in the water. Double Creek Park has a boat ramp for all the boaters. There is a swim designated area, also.


If you want to tour area points of interest, there are plenty of interesting places to keep you busy for a few days . The Dog Iron Ranch and Birthplace of the comedian, Will Rogers, is just about 17 miles south on Hwy. 169. If you go north about 20 miles on Hwy.169 to Coffeyville, Kansas, you will find the Brown Mansion and The Dalton Museum. Go west, young man, on Hwy. 60 towards Bartlesville and you will find an abundance of sites to spend a few quality hours.

Venture on to Dewey, where the west is wild and tour a real Hollywood Cowboy’s museum. Dewey is about 5 miles north of Bartlesville on Hwy.75 and tour a real Hollywood Cowboy’s museum.

  2. The Dewey Hotel

Now, I haven’t told you of all the antique stores and great shopping in the area! That is a secret for a later entry, be sure and come back!

A caretaker is on site, but if he cannot be found upon entering the park, well, just go ahead and park your camper or set up your tent. He will come around and collect the dues for camping.

  1. Hi, I was wondering does this area have a beach like swimming area. I think I went there with friends back in 1988 or so. We camped out on the beach area and I remember it had no facilities then. I am thinking of taking my kids to camp and they would like a beach but I think the lake would be cheaper and faster to get to. Thanks.
