Campground Reservations

Chickasaw National Recreation Area has partnered with Recreation.gov in accepting campground reservations at some campgrounds in the park. Selected sites are reservable from May 15th to September 15th each year. Visitors may contact Recreation.gov year-round to make reservations up to six months in advance (one year in advance for group sites). The remainder of the year open campground sites are available on a first-come, first-serve basis, as the campgrounds rarely fill during those periods. Please note: The recreation.gov website will show all sites as being filled from September 15th to May 15th, during the period of time when reservations are not accepted.

The following sites are on the reservation system:

  • Group sites at Rock Creek, Central and Cold Springs Campgrounds - Rates are $30.00 per night, per site. The Rock Creek group campsite is reservable year-round.
  • Buckhorn Campground: Loop C - Rates are utility sites $22.00 (Loop C only) per night, per site; premium utility sites $24.00 (May through September - Loop C sites #4, 5, 6, and 7) per night, per site, and non-utility sites $16.00 per night, per site (Loop C).
  • The Point, upper loop (Sites 42-56) - Utility sites $22.00 per night, per site and non-utility sites $16.00 per night, per site.
