If I was going to use one adjective to describe this park, it would be “manicured. ” This is a very well kept up RV park in South Oklahoma City, just minutes from downtown or Moore, which ever direction you need to go. I found it very convenient for the week that I was here visiting my son.
There are no dog parks but instead “dog areas” throughout. When I checked in, the manager said the dogs could go in any grassy area. She wasn’t kidding. There are Dog Spot Waste receptacles and bags in 3 or 4 areas throughout the park, making it easy to keep the park clean. Also, this is one of the few spots in my travels where I was able to walk my dogs without encountering poo every where that hadn’t been scooped. Really nice and clean throughout.
There are 3 storm shelters; however, the check-in brochure stated that no pets were allowed in these shelters. Lucky for me, they parked me right next to one of the laundry/shower buildings which is a certified storm shelter and the only one where pets are allowed. There are two laundry facilities with surprisingly low rates, $1.00 per load. I didn’t check the bathrooms and showers but I’m sure they were well-maintained and they required a code to enter.
No stores nearby but plenty of walking opportunities for the dogs. There are empty fields and sleepy neighborhood roads that enabled us to enjoy a number of long walks during the week we were here. My google map showed a neighborhood park nearby but I never set out to find it so can’t comment on that.
Even though the freeway (I-35) was nearby, I never heard freeway noise. There is some construction next door with a new multi-story building (hotel maybe?) but never interfered with my enjoyment of the week. My son did not even know this RV park was here and was surprised at how nice it was in what he thought was a mainly industrial area. I paid $220 for 7 days.
If you visit OKC, downtown is well worth seeing. However, I would avoid the zoo. It was nothing to write home about but there is a nice interactive science center right next door. There is free parking all around the OK Memorial Museum, metered parking at the Myriad Botanical Gardens, and lot parking in Bricktown ($5 for the day). We were there on a weekday during the summer and not very crowded at all. On weekends, Bricktown and the canal area do get very crowded, they told us.
The OKC Memorial Museum was much, much better than what I was expecting and really fascinating. They did a great job creating all the interactive displays and presenting the story. Don’t miss the outside either with the reflecting pond. It is beautiful.
