Lake Keystone is the perfect place for great fishing (striper, walleye, bass and catfish), boating, water skiing and swimming. There's no better place to enjoy the lake than from beautiful Keystone State Park. Combined with the excitement of nearby Tulsa, it's an excellent way to spend the day on the water and the night on the town.

This park offers lakeview cabins with fireplaces, community center, picnic sites, group picnic shelters, RV and tent campsites, comfort stations with showers, lighted boat ramps, playgrounds, hiking trail, fitness trail and full service marina. Two cabins feature Jacuzzi tubs. The park office also serves as a cabin office, information center and grocery store. Seasonal restaurant is located in the park at Pier 51 Marina.
History of the Area
Located in northeastern Oklahoma, the park was established in 1966. It spans over 1,000 acres around Keystone Lake. The area is known for its recreational activities like fishing and boating.

The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) built many of the facilities during the Great Depression era. These include cabins that are still used today by visitors to this popular outdoor destination.

In addition to water-based recreation, it offers hiking trails and picnic areas with beautiful views of surrounding landscapes.

Over time it has become a favorite spot among bird watchers due to diverse species found there throughout different seasons.

Despite facing budget cuts from state government several times since inception, support from local communities helped maintain operations at full capacity ensuring continued access for public enjoyment.
