Checotah / Lake Eufaula West KOA, Checotah, OK

Checotah / Lake Eufaula West KOA, Checotah, OK

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐
Site Quality: Gravel roads and pads. Our site was plenty long for our rig and truck. Sites are fairly close together with a picnic table for each.
Type:  Commercial Park
Access: Just off Interstate 40 West of Checotah, OK. Take exit 255 (Pierce Rd.) then go West on the North service road.
Staff: Staff interaction was good but minimal.
Amenities:  Fishing pond, Swimming pool (in season), cabins, playground, laundry. Access to Lake Eufaula via a short trail at the back of the park.
Cellular/WiFi:  Verizon and AT&T were both good with AT&T being the fastest. They claimed to have WiFi but we did not see it or use it.
What we liked: Easy access, nice clean park. Pretty park with a fair amount of trees but we still got satellite at site 61. Decent price for a KOA part – ~$35 per night.
What we didn’t like: Although the sites are gravel, there wasn’t much gravel left. During wet weather they could be messy. Some road noise from Interstate 40. Quite a few long term residents and at least one trailer stored in a site that didn’t look like it had been used for a while. The nearest restaurants and stores are about 15 miles away in either Checotah or Henryetta. Both have Walmarts. KOAs area always more expensive than what you get but this was one of the least expensive KOAs we have stayed at.
Verdict: This park is nice with large mature trees and decent sites as long as it’s not wet and muddy. Deluxe sites with concrete patios would be nice in wet weather. Good for a short stay enroute as there wouldn’t be a lot to do here for longer stays.

Mustang Run RV Park, Yukon, OK

Mustang Run RV Park, Yukon, OK

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐
Site Quality:  Concrete roads and pads. Most sites are pull through although perimeter sites were back in. These sites seemed to be occupied by more long term visitors although they were kept clean and in good order.
Type:  Commercial
Access:  Easy access from Interstate 40 in southwest Oklahoma City. Easy access to the Kilpatrick Turnpike to go north to visit relatives.
Staff: We had minimal interaction but everyone was cordial and helpful.
Amenities:  50A power with full hookups. Picnic table at each site. There were 3 storm shelters within the park which could be helpful since this area of the country frequently gets bad weather. In fact, we were under tornado watches and warnings the first night we were here. There are restroom/shower facilities as well as a laundry in the clubhouse although we didn’t use any of them. The office area was clean and well maintained so the other facilities likely were as well. There is a playground, dog run and a swimming pool.
Cellular/WiFi:  Verizon and AT&T were decent (2-3 bars) without amplification. Data speeds were somewhat slow at times and usually below 10 Mbps.
What we liked:  Newer park surrounded by retail options for shopping and eating. The park was well maintained. Trash pickup daily at your site.
What we didn’t like: Some highway noise from Interstate 40 but not enough at night to keep us awake.
Verdict: Although a bit far from our relatives, this is one of only a few decent parks in the OKC area. This is not a destination stop but is a good, safe place for short stays when travelling through the area or visiting relatives. We would stay here again.

Tulsa NE / Will Rogers Downs KOA – Claremore

Tulsa NE / Will Rogers Downs KOA – Claremore

Rating:  
Location:  Claremore, Oklahoma
Site Quality:  Gravel roads throughout the park with gravel pull thru and back in spots. In addition some spots were just grass.
Type:  Commercial
Access:  About 3 miles off Interstate 44 (Turner Turnpike) off highway 20 East of Claremore with good access for big rigs.
Staff: Friendly and helpful.
Amenities:  Laundry facilities along with showers and restrooms.
Cellular/WiFi:  AT&T and Verizon 4 bars and decent speeds (7.78 Mbps Verizon / 7.69 Mbps AT&T). WiFi was available but we did not use it.
What we liked:  Quiet, peaceful atmosphere. Felt safe. Site (#37) was more than large enough for a 41′ RV and the truck. The Cherokee Casino is adjacent to the RV park. This could be good or bad but they did have a cheap restaurant with decent food.
What we didn’t like: Will Rogers Downs is adjacent to the park although the season did not start for another week when we stayed there (August 30, 2018). Again, this could be both good and bad depending on your preference. Some sites backed up to the track so you could watch the races from your RV.
