Situated on the shores of Enid Lake, George Payne Cossar State Park is a sportsman's paradise. Most of the land around the lake and in nearby Holly Springs National Forest is open for public hunting, and is abundant in variety of game. Hunters are not the only sportsmen who will find their quarry in the area. The world record crappie, weighing in at over five pounds, was pulled from the waters of Enid Lake. These excellent hunting and fishing opportunities, combined with a variety of recreational opportunities and scenic natural beauty, make George Payne Cossar State Park the perfect family vacation spot.

July 28 A few days to relax by Parkers
Family was on our way back to Arkansas from Gulf Shores. We had about a 13 hour drive and decided we needed to find a spot mid way for a couple of days to park our trailer and just chill. We chose Cossar Park. It was situated among a deep forest of beautiful old trees, near a beautiful lake. Deer were wandering around everywhere. We just went for walks with the dogs and even took in a game of putt putt golf with our daughter. The park was not new and extravagant, but all I can say is, I wish it was 7 hours closer to us and we would be back.
July 19 FAMILY WEEK by DAVID STAPLES
WE HAD 5A AND 5B CABINS. EVERYONE SO NICE SPECIALLY THE WORKERS AND PARK RANGERS.I WOULD HAVE TO GIVE IT 5 STARS. WE STAYED 5 DAYS AND DIDN,T WANT TO LEAVE.
September 22 A pleasant surprise
Just spent a quiet weekend here. Cabin was clean, roomy and had basic kitchen equipment. We fed inquisitive deer apples and watched a skunk steal our cricket box off the patio. Only downside was the lake level was low and the shoreline was very muddy, but the surroundings were lovely.
