“a natural wonderland”

Take a horseback ride along the scenic bluffs, fish to your heart's content, wake up to the view from Belle Starr View Lodge, explore the beauty that is Robbers Cave State Park. Robbers Cave State Park is located in the scenic, hilly woodlands of the San Bois Mountains of southeast Oklahoma. A favorite of rappellers, cave explorers, equestrians, hikers and outdoor lovers, Robbers Cave enjoys notoriety as a former hideout for outlaws. The park and adjoining wildlife management area offers acres of discovery and enjoyment including caves, trout fishing in season, boating, hunting, trails for hikers and horses, sandstone cliffs for climbing and rappelling, and fall foliage viewing. RV and tent campsites, and equestrian campsites are also available. Lodging facilities include the Belle Starr View Lodge, cabins and two group camps. Picnic tables, comfort stations with showers, boat ramps, a swimming beach, swimming pool with bathhouse, playgrounds, miniature golf, hiking trails, paddleboat rentals, and a nature center with naturalist programs/exhibits round out the park's facilities.

Hiking trails VERY poorly marked. Map was confusing at best. Even signage was confusing and completely inadequate. Very easy to get lost because trails have overgrowth. Hike carefully and cautiously. The water is gorgeous though, enjoy that & skip the big hikes or at least go with the guides and get familiar with the park first.

Wooded and as mountainous as Oklahoma gets, Robber's Cave is a great place to escape for a couple of days. Plenty of activities if you're taking the family, but also lots of trails and back country camping if you're wanting an escape.

We visited in December and had the park to ourselves. It was wonderful and had power, water and sewer. We enjoyed the Robbers Cave walk.

Dog friendly which is why I gave it 4 stars, cabin was nice with a fireplace inside and fire pit outside. The staff were very friendly Donna in the office and the park ranger whose name I forgot. The ranger picked us up near dusk after getting lost on the trails. If you go hiking be sure to grab both a hiking map and equestrian map because like another reviewer said the trails are poorly marked if at all and there is no sign that lets you know you've left the park and crossed into the equestrian trails. It was also sad to see so many fracking sites just outside the hiking trails. The park was well kept and some very beautiful sunsets to be seen over the lake. Plan on visiting again. They also give a military discount which is nice and they have a winter special. Dogs are charged by the day per dog which can get pricey real fast. But overall it was a nice 4 day trip.
