Think you have to travel out of Oklahoma to enjoy an RV adventure? Stop saving all of that gas money and hit the road to some of the gorgeous — and adventurous — RV destinations right here in our home state.

Chickasaw National Recreation Area

Head to the Chickasaw National Recreation Area in Sulphur, Okla., for the ultimate outdoor vacation. With year-round recreation from hiking and bird watching to waterskiing, seasonal hunting and climbing. And when you’re seeking some adventure outside of the park, head to Bivens Dog Trade, a massive and historical flea market that dates back to the 1940s.

Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge

Wander through nearly 60,000 acres of wilderness and ancient mountains at the Wichitaw Mountains Wildlife Refuge outside in southwestern Oklahoma. Make your adventure extreme by mountain biking, rock climbing and rappelling or take it a little easier and enjoy a hike, a picnic or a long day of fishing. Take the kids over to the Quanah Parker Nature and Visitor Center to learn more about the incredible wildlife that call the Wichitaw Mountains home.

Robbers Cave State Park

Adventure back to the days of the Wild West at Robbers Cave State Park in the legendary San Bois Mountains. Your whole family will enjoy exploring the caves, climbing the sandstone and taking a horseback ride across the park’s gorgeous bluffs. Whether you enjoy boating, trout fishing, hiking, hunting or climbing, there’s an outdoor adventure to suit every visitor at Robbers Cave State Park.

Little Sahara State Park

Looking for a place to pull up your toy hauler and unload the ATVs? Little Sahara State Park is one of the most popular ATV destinations in the state with over 1,600 acres of sand dunes. And if you didn’t bring your own ATV, dune buggy or dirt bike, they’re available for rent in Waynoka just outside of the park.

An RV Thanksgiving

It’s once again that time of year where we take a moment to reflect on what’s happened over the past year. We find ourselves giving thanks for all the fortunate times we’ve had and for being able to come together again. Some Oklahoma City RVers are lucky enough to not only travel for Thanksgiving, but a select few are taking the holiday to the road. If you’re celebrating from aboard your motorhome this year, here are a few tips to make it even better.

Get Festive

Everyone decorates for Hanukkah and Christmas. Set yourself apart this year by allowing Thanksgiving the attention it deserves. Get in the mood to celebrate by transforming the interior of your motorhome into a homage for our ancestors who forged a life here with the Native Americans. There are many options if you look for them, not including all the turkey related crafts you can make on our own. If you have children, you can use their hands to trace as turkey feathers and let them have fun decorating it.

Location, Location, Location

A clear advantage RVers have to everyone else is that they go anywhere! That kind of freedom really opens up doors for special events. Instead of driving through traffic and dealing with uncooperative weather, you can head out to the remote areas with beautiful sunsets. If you’re visiting family, you will be saving them the trouble of finding you a place to sleep since you are coming with your own beds and living area. So, having a motorhome really becomes an asset for all occasions.

Dinner

If you’re not hosting the big dinner on your RV, perhaps you’re under the impression that you don’t have enough room. This is a false assumption from those without experience. Modern RVs have unique storage and space options that can give you twice the area to work with. The ovens are big enough for a turkey, there are plenty of burners for vegetables, and once items are warm they can be kept in the microwave until you’re ready.
