With its mixture of naturally occurring attractions and man-made fun, Oklahoma is a great destination for RVers. To save you some trouble in scouting for destinations I’ve put together my top five RV parks, sites and grounds for the Sooner State.
Winstar RV Park: Thackerville
If you’re feeling like indoor fun instead of running around the outdoors than Winstar RV Park is the place for you. The sites are landscaped and kept clean.
There are 153 sites with full utility hookups and wireless internet access, there are 50 foot back in sites as well as 80 foot pull throughs. The shower, restroom and laundry facilities received a 10/10 from the Good Sam RV Club. There is a 1400 square foot indoor pavilion, 3000 square foot outdoor pavilion, outdoor grills, playground and outdoor recreation available.
Catch the complimentary 24 hour shuttle to the Winstar World Casino for the excitement of a great casino. There are plenty of table games including poker, bingo and keno as well as slots. There are several areas where you can catch live entertainment or eat at one of the several fine or casual dining restaurants. Winstar also houses a golf academy where you can hone your skills before taking on their private golf course.
Water’s Edge RV & Cabin Resort: Vinita
Water’s Edge RV Park is made for water lovers and has some spiffy amenities to boot.
You choose water front or land sites, all big and able to accommodate large motorhomes and trailers. Every site is outfitted with 20/30/50 amp service, water, sewer, fire rings, grills, picnic tables, cable TV and wireless internet. There are laundry and bathhouses on site, as well as clubhouse and fishing piers directly off the dock.
The edge of the water this park is on is the Grand Lake O’ the Cherokees, this sprawling lake has everything you want and need in a great body of water, room for cruising, sailing, fishing, tubing and more. Nearby you also have Honey Creek State Park, nearby antique shopping or you can take a cruise across the lake on the Cherokee Queen Riverboat. Make sure to stop by Har-ber Village, a mid 19th century living museum.
Durant/Chocktaw Casino KOA: Durant
You get to choose if you want outdoor adventure, history or the fun of a casino when staying at the Durant/Choctaw Casino KOA. There are plenty of features and amenities for you to enjoy your stay. You have full utility hookups, cable TV and Wi-Fi at every site. Laundry, restroom and shower facilities are kept clean and ready for use 24/7. This KOA rounds out their features with a dog park, wellness center, grill and picnic areas, on site dining options, an RV supply store and more.
There’s something for everyone in the Durant area. For the outdoor enthusiast or angler there is Lake Texoma, this massive reservoir is ready to handle hikers, anglers, cyclists, water skiing, leisure boaters and anything else you want to do on the lake. For history buffs there are the artifacts, lectures and exhibits of Fort Washita Historical Site and Three Valley Museum.
The high rollers can head over to the grand Choctaw Casino for games, entertainment and fine dining.
Robbers Cave State Park: Wilburton
Lose yourself in the hilly and forested landscape of Robbers Cave State Park in Oklahoma’s Sans Bois Mountains. This State Park is loaded in amenities and features, you have full utility hookups in big pull through spaces. There are plenty of showers and restrooms to wash off the day’s fun and filth. There are dump stations, public grills and pavilions, playgrounds, an amphitheater, camp store and rangers on site.
Robbers Cave State Park is an outdoor enthusiast’s dream. You can climb the mountains and repel, choose from beginner to advanced hiking trails, fish for trout, take a horseback ride or just meander and explore the Robbers Cave itself, where Jesse James was said to have hidden out in.
The 8200 acre park joins up with Lake Carlton, Lake Wayne Wallace and Coon Creek for some fun on the water as well.
Hidden Lake RV Park: Ardmore
This RV Park is located in southern Oklahoma right next to Oklahoma’s largest and oldest State Park. You won’t lack in amenities and features at Hidden Lake RV Park. All sites come with 20/30/50 amp hookups, water and sewer hookups. Restrooms, showers and laundry facilities are bright and clean. Oklahoma may be in the middle of a longer journey so stop at this park for some RV repairs and maintenance as well as a camp store with RV supplies. Other amenities include picnic tables, cable TV and free Wi-Fi at every site.
You are just a hop, skip and jump from Lake Murray State Park where you can get out on Lake Murray itself or open up the throttle on Lake Murray’s miles of ATV trails. Other popular activities at Lake Murray include paddle boarding, biking and horseback riding. You are also very close to Ardmore Community Water Park, the Chickasaw Recreation Area and the Arbuckle Wilderness.
Oklahoma may not seem like the first stop on an RV adventure, but you’ll be surprised by what you can find this Midwest state.
