Lake Thunderbird State Park Oklahoma

This one's for you, Speedyboy---as per your of Lake Thunderbird. Here you can see our campsite.

View out our back window--that is our site's table and grill.

It is a nice park, sorry I could not get more photos. As you can see, it was very wet. In fact, by the time DH and I had the fiver set up---we were soggy indeed.

There are two loops in the park. One has electric at the site and water close by--the other loop has some with full hook ups. Both loops are wooded and have a least a partial cement or asphalt pad with some gravel. We stayed in the electric only site and paid $18.00. There is a marina for the boaters and lots of fishing areas. The campsites have lots of trees and are not exactly big rig friendly, but it can be done. The park is in need of some TLC, but everything works and is clean. We actually showered in the bath house and had great water pressure and plenty of hot water.
We would come back and stay here again---looks like there are some nice hiking trails around the lake. I bet this place is really busy in the summer. I would definitely recommend reservations especially if you have a large rv.

Now for the rest of the story, we traveled I-40 and just outside of Oklahoma City we hit 75 to 100 miles of the worst road we have traveled in a long time. It was like continuously crossing rail road tracks.......bumpity, bump, bump! I kid you not, our teeth were clanking together. I think the furballs thought the world was coming to an end! They were sure happy to be out of the truck when we stopped for the night. Let's face it, we were all happy to finally stop bouncing down the highway. LOL!

Next stop........Carthage, MO
By the by--I'm a little behind in my posting--no internet at the park. We stayed there Tuesday night the 5th of May. We are currently in Carthage, MO---more on that in my next post.
