Cross Timbers State Park

All shower facilities have been CLOSED for the winter.

Cross Timbers State Park is under a burn ban.

We have been receiving several phone calls with questions in regard to the burn ban. The burn ban IS STILL IN EFFECT and will remain so indefinitely. The park follows the recommendations from the Woodson County Commissioners/Fire Chiefs when determining when and how long to implement the burn ban. What happens in the park has a direct impact on the surrounding county. Wildfires are not worth the risk considering the park is currently surrounded by dry prairie grasses, forest, and cropland in the middle of the fall harvest.
This ban includes campfires.  Carefully contained and monitored charcoal for cooking is ok, but propane is preferred method for cooking.  In the event significant rainfall occurs, we will announce the lifting of the burn ban on our Cross Timbers Facebook page when Woodson County does so.

Recently the Timber Ridge Campground - 24 campsites were upgraded to 50 Amp service and frost-free hydrants.  Staff also completed concrete to some campsites and gravel to others, five sites have concrete living spaces with two of which will be ADA.  This was a Land Water Conservation Fund project and was completed in 2020.

A FEMA funded project is the replacement of the vault toilet on the west side of the spillway, now open!

Coming Soon:  FEMA funded dock replacement in Holiday Hill Area - South Boat Ramp

Be sure and check out our four rustic cabins. All of our cabins offer unique views and a quiet atmosphere. Sandstone Bluff and Whispering Oaks share a courtesy dock for boaters and fisherman, be sure to request one of the two if you have these needs. Reservations should be made early, weekends usually fill up six months ahead. Make your reservation through or call the office, 620.637.2213. Please note there is no smoking allowed inside and NO TENTS allowed in the cabin areas. The only pet-friendly cabin is Eagle's Nest, pet fee is required. Timber Walker in Toronto Point is fully ADA, sleeps six, and has a larger living space than our other Cross Timbers cabins.

The Big Timbers playground, located in the Toronto Point area of the park, is designed for children ages 5-12. There are slides, climbing, and swings for your youngster's enjoyment. A smaller additional playground is located in the Osage Plains Campground, where kids can enjoy a climber, and swings!
