The Oklahoma City KOA was a terrific location for us to visit Oklahoma City and family north of the city. We appreciated it being close enough to visit the city, without being too busy.
This KOAs easy access to I-40 was one of the primary reasons we choose it. It was less than a mile from the interstate, but far enough away we couldn’t hear the traffic. We were also visiting family north of Oklahoma City, so it was a great base for us.
This was a smaller KOA with only about 50 full hook up sites. The interior roads were paved and the outer roads on each side were gravel and appeared to have more seasonal or long term stay campers. Most of the sites were also gravel with just a picnic table. However, there there were a few deluxe sites with outdoor furniture and fire pits.
We had a nice long gravel pull through spot that our 44′ fifth wheel and truck fit into nicely. However, although the campground website indicates they have cable, we learned the hard way it did not extend to our row.
In addition to RV sites, the campground also had park models, cabins, and tent sites.
This park seemed a little older than most KOAs we’ve stayed it, but it had a all the amenities you expect from the franchise including a playground, nature trail, dog park, and laundry room. We were disappointed that the pool was seasonal and already closed in early October. I did really enjoy the 1-mile nature trail through the woods that circled the campground.
Most importantly for a campground in Oklahoma, the campground had two storm shelters.
While there, we visited the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum. Located in downtown Oklahoma City, the museum is adjacent to the former site of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building, which was destroyed in the 1995 bombing. The museum and memorial honors the victims, survivors, rescuers, and all who were affected by the Oklahoma City bombing. It was very moving and we encourage anyone in the area to take the time to visit.
The outdoor memorial can be visited 24-hours per day. A particularly poignant part of it is the Field of Empty Chairs. The 168 empty chairs were hand-crafted from glass, bronze, and stone. They sit on the site where the Murrah Building once stood and represent those who lost their lives. Three unborn children died along with their mothers, and they are listed on their mothers’ chairs beneath their mothers’ names. The 19 smaller chairs represent the children killed in the bombing.
