The state of Oklahoma is home to six KOA Campgrounds, five of which are in the central region of the state and one in the southern end. They are all open year round with the exception of the El Reno West KOA which only operates from march 15 through November 30. Likewise all but the Marietta/Ardmore KAO are right on Interstate 40 so they are extremely easy to find and get to. Each operates under state regulation and offers standard WiFi service to all campers. What follows is a little closer look at what you can expect to find at Oklahoma’s KOA campgrounds.
The Ardmore/Marietta KOA as noted above is located in the south on the Texas border and offers RV sites with fifty amp service with 90 foot length, tent sites, and one room cabins. This is a popular site for travelrs headed to Texas but also lovers of golf and fishing as there are plenty of each in the area. If you like dropping a line to go for catfish, crappie, and bass this is the best KOA in the state hands down. Withing the area you’ll find the gene Autry Oklahoma Museum. rodeos, auctions, and some excellent antiquing opportunities.Swimming an biking are available (Bike rentals at the KOA so you can leave yours at home), and great nature walks and hiking abound. This is an excellent family KOA!
The Elk City/Clinton KOA and El Reno West KOA are close to each other on the southwest side of the central region just west of Oklahoma City. Each has RV sites with 50 amp service, tent sites, and one room cabins. The El Reno West also offers two room cabins to accomodate a larger group or give a smaller group a little nore space. Each also offers a seasonal swimming pool. These each offer some of the nature experience but also have plenty of “city life” very nearby so these KOA’s appeal to a broad range of campers. These do swift busuness so booking in advance, especially for cabins, is highly adviseable.
The three remaining Oklahona KOA campgrounds are the Oklahoma City East, Checotah/Lake Eufaula, and the Sallissaw/Fort Smith West Koa. Each is open year round offering WiFi service, a seasonal swimming pool, tent sites, and RV sites which come with 50 amp service and either 80 or 85 foot length. Wach has one room cabins as well but the Checotah KOA also has camping cottages and the Oklahome City East offers camping lodges. All in all these are pretty standard fare but each operates to a high standard and all are family friendly.
Whatever KOA you choose in Oaklahoma you are sure to have a good camping experience at an afforadble price. Each is well maintained and staffed providing the extras you usually won’t find at other campgrounds. The Ardmore/Marietta KOA campground stands out above the rest though as it offers so many diverse activities in a less crowded setting than it’s sister KOA’s in the state. If you plan on staying a week that is the top pick in this area.
