Looking for info on campground in the area of Locust Grove, OK. That's a few miles east of Tulsa on US412 (Cherokee Turnpike).

My wife and I are going with our Church to the area around Locust Grove, OK to work on a church at Snake Creek. The organizers tell me that we will be staying at Lakeshore Camping some 8 miles north of Locust Grove, but have no info on the campground. I haven't been able to find any information about this place, and no other listings for campgrounds around Locust Grove.

Anyone ever been there?

Thanks - Freddy

We live on the other side of Lake Hudson from LG. There is some camping north of there at Salina but nothing as far as I know in LG. Some South of Chouteau ...Blue Bill Point is one.

Freddy,
We did a search but didn't find anything by that name. To find a campground you might try Google. You have to type the www.Google.com in the address bar. Click on "local" and then type in campgrounds, Locust Grove, OK. There are lots of them around there so you should probably be able to find one in the area you're looking. The "local" search is new and you can search just about any town in the US to find campgrounds, etc. Good luck.

Just remembered that the one west of Salina off HWY 20 is a Corp of Engineers Park named Snowdale. Most Corp parks here have electric at every site and water about every 6 sites. Full hook ups are a real rearity.

I believe if you look up Salina or Pryor you will find some campgrounds in the area. There are a couple of fish camp type campgrounds south of Salina going toward LG.

There is a private campground called Chouteau Bend on Hwy 412 between Chouteau and LG on The Grand River.

That is about all there is here.

If you need I can try to get you some phone numbers tomorrow.

Ken

Thanks for the offer, but we've been assigned to that particular campground. Strange that it's not listed in any of the various books, or on the web.

I have a feeling that if it's not up to par we'll be camping elsewhere. Just hate to make the drive to the park, and find out that I should have stayed in Wagoner, or somewhere else.

BTW, I'm also a ham...W5JKC, but have been inactive for years. XYL is WB5TQL.

Just got back from OK, and found Lake Shore campground to be just above "OK." It is essentially a fishing/recreation camp where many locals park their trailers for weekend use. They also have large open areas for tent campers.

There are a few full hook-up sites available, and despite all the boats, jet skis, kids, pets, etc., it's reasonably quiet.

No cable, but several stations around Tulsa can be pulled in with external antenna.
