History of the Area
Located in Caddo County, Oklahoma, the park was established in 1958. It spans over 1,875 acres and includes Fort Cobb Lake.

The area has a rich Native American history with tribes such as Kiowa and Comanche inhabiting it before European settlement.

In the mid-19th century, an actual fort named Fort Cobb existed nearby but no structures remain today.

Recreational facilities were developed by National Park Service Mission during its operation from 1933 to 1942 under President Franklin D Roosevelt's New Deal Program.

Today it offers various recreational activities like fishing, boating along with camping sites for visitors.

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
May 31 Poor upkeep by Brett Barrett
park review stars; one to five We as a family have camped in area 2 for many years now and it has always been a great place to stay. It has become a tradition to start the summer camping season off with Memorial day weekend. This year the maintenance, such as grounds was terrible. There had been almost no mowing or filling of holes from animals digging over previous months. May have to look for another place to camp.
October 17 great park to visit
park review stars; one to five Have visited Ft. Cobb several times. Last visit was Sep 27/28. Always have good time. I sure wish they would do something to get rid of those darn sand burrs!! They are tough on dogs and little kids.
September 17 Park was clean and plenty of fish by Margie
