Clear, beautiful blue green water! Calm kayak trip. Great for the whole family. Exercise that doesn't feel like work, but church. There's a spiritual connection with nature to be had on this river. We highly recommend the trip. We will certainly return.

This swimming hole is SO much fun. The Blue River Campground is secluded so there's not as many people as Chickasaw National Park. The current is fast moving and the water is clean. There's even a rope swing too!! AND...you can drive across the river...More

Make sure you have a hunting and fishing license, or a permit to enter the park. It's beautiful and very nice to see the water and hear it running at night while camping out. Very nice campground within a wooded area and the nice people...More

I was taken aback by the untouched beauty of this place! It was SO nice to come to an area that was not overran with people and the ones that were there respected it. Clean, clear waters roll down through there and beg you to...More

My wife and I stopped at the Blue River recreational area last weekend. It's quite lovely. It's quiet and relaxing there. We took off our shoes and walked across the road over which the waterfalls fall; it's only a few inches deep. We didn't stay...More

We spent a 3 day weekend camping at Blue River near Tishomingo, OK. The water falls were amazing and the water ran clean and clear. Fishing was so-so as it needed to be stocked, but we did see a few small Rainbow Trout and a...More
