Lake Texoma, Cartwright, OK
Taking the weekend off from Blogging from A to Z.
We arrived at this COE park on Friday afternoon. What a great park right across from the TX border into Oklahoma by the bridge crossing over the dam.
We could see the campground in the distance.
Each site in the newer section is on a large cement pad, has a table under a shelter, a grill and a fish cleaning station. This is our "home" until Wednesday.
A decent site but this one looks perfect. Of course it was reserved.
We've taken a walk around the campground. Where we are there is full hook ups, 50 amp, water and sewer. Across the way the pad are gravel and there is no sewer. Then around the corner are the tent only sites. I sure would not want to be one of them now (or ever). We woke in the middle of the night to lightning and fierce thunder. We checked the 5 day forecast and it is expected to be more of the same.
We have found the Corps of Engineer Parks to be great values. The parks are clean and well tended. Some have sewer, some don't. Those that don't have clean shower and toilet facilities. However, these parks are so well known that sometimes getting into them can be a challenge. Yesterday I reserved for two more, one in Kansas and another in Nebraska. We really appreciate the 50% discount given to us as holders of the Federal Golden Passport. A fee of from only $9.00 to $12.00 a night sure helps the budget.
When traveling from Georgetown Tx to here we saw fuel prices ranging from $3.99 on up to $4.29 in the Dallas area. How delighted we were to see the station at the entrance of the campground with this:
Kinda hard to believe that we are glad to see fuel prices at ONLY $3.75!!!
What are you paying for gas/fuel?
