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.


  1. Nice relaxing setting to spend a couple of days...stay safe!

  2. I know exactly what you mean about the humidity. It usually hits somewhere in Oklahoma when you're driving east. Must be quite an experience after being out west for the past several years.
