Black Mesa State Park

Black Mesa State Park is located in the far northwestern corner of Oklahoma in the panhandle. Adjacent to Lake Carl Etling, the state park gets its name from black lava that covered the area 30 million years ago. For those who wish to stay overnight, the park has RV, tent and equestrian campsites with restrooms with showers and a group camp with bunkhouses. Bring in what you need because there are no stores close by. Describing Black Mesa, an EarthSky visitor gushes, “NO light pollution!!”
