Belle Starr COE Campground, Lake Eufaula, OK
It was a long 250 mile drive today with a strong crosswind, but we made it to eastern Oklahoma, trying to keep ahead of the strong thunderstorms heading this way. We are having a hard time adjusting to the humidity, after spending so much time in the dry southwest. Brings back bad memories of Florida, but I guess we better get used to it.
Found this really nice Army Corps of Engineers campground, Belle Starr, near Eufaula, OK, and got a fantastic site on the lake for $18 a night with electric. We were thinking of going to nearby Lake Eufaula State Park, which sounded nice, too, but found out the lakefront sites are $25 there, so opted for this instead. Just hope the storms stay away.
Some of the wildlife outside our door.
Plan to spend at least a couple days here. We’ve done way too much driving this week.
