Black Mesa State Park is located in the Panhandle region of Oklahoma in Cimarron County south of the Cimarron River off SR 325 about 25 miles northwest of Boise City.

The 349-acre park is highlighted by 260-acre Lake Etling and offers 55 campsites (4 pull-throughs and 34 with hookups), a group camp with a capacity of 120, restrooms and showers, sanitary dump station, a hiking trail, boating, fishing and a playground. The campgrounds are open daily year round.

The mesa, 14 miles north of the park, is 4,973 high and is Oklahoma's highest point and extends 45 miles into Colorado and New Mexico.

The grounds around and within the park attracts anglers, archaelogy buffs, birders, campers, and rock hounds. Nearby Robbers Roost was a hideout for wild west outlaws and has been called a "dinosaur graveyard" where more than 18 tons of dinosaur bones, including a 6-foot-long femur, have been taken from the area.
