Anyone have any suggestions. I've been told to try Mingo RV Park. Anyone stayed there? Thanks for all comments.

We had stayed there about 7 or 8 years ago and it had gone down hill as of last year.

We last stayed at the Tulsa KOA about 2 years ago and it was OK...lots of truck noise from the highway and truck stop.

We stayed at ten-killer lake or fort Gibson Corp of Engineers parks last year forgot which one was closest. Both was uncrowded and clean. A little drive but not bad. s/Toby

A lot of the Corp and state park campgrounds close or at least partially close during the winter months, so you need to check on this issue depending on the time of year.

We have a couple of folks on here that live inor near Tulsa and should be around for a visit, but they havve a campout at Pawnee this weekend.

Mingo rv park is ok for a nights stay or such but is really not much, kind of like parking in a parking lot. I would recommend trying to get into the RV campground at the fairgrounds, much better facilities and convenient, also quieter. I don't have a listing for them but they are off 15th st between Harvard and Yale. Most COE parks around here close the end of October so be sure and check if you try using one of those. I'm thinking Keystone state park might be open year round but not sure, you can check and see. They are located about 20 miles West of Tulsa.

If I can help any more let me know. Probably be best if you PM'd me, that way I'll get a notice.

Good luck!

My sweetie and I plan on spending Thanksgiving in Tulsa with friends and we are looking for a nice campground in the south or southeast quadrant of the Tulsa area. Any tips would be appreciated.
Looked at GreenLeaf State Park, but it is 60 miles south east of Tulsa, we would prefer to be a little closer than that. Thanks for any info!
EDIT: Vette Racer - I just read your post above this one and the Fair Grounds look pretty good. I am going to call them in the morning- Thanks, Glenn.

I had forgotten about the campground at the Fairgrounds. It is really about the best to be found in Tulsa. There a few smaller ones scatter around, but not much to recommend them. Tulsa is not so large and traffic is not much of a problem.

We have family in Tulsa and stayed at Mingo for three or four nights toward the end of March 2006. Nice folks running the place and it was for us the most convenient location to Tulsa. Highway noise is perhaps a drawback as perhaps is lack of much recreation. The price was fair and the place was clean. We liked it.

Thanks for all the comments. We are leaving in the morning for Tulsa. Will post our experience for those who may want to stay @ Mingo in the future.

Just a short follow up. We just returned from Tulsa. We stayed at the Fair Grounds (EXPO SQUARE RV PARK), and I posted a review in I R V 2 CG REVIEWS. Short summary: It is like a Wal-Mart parking lot with hook ups. It is more for PARKING and not for CAMPING. It worked fine for us as we were visiting friends and only used our RV to sleep in and get cleaned up. The rest of the time we were either with our friends or sight seeing.

Murtha - how was the security at the RV park? We are contemplating staying at Keystone State Park - about 25 miles west of Tulsa. However, the fairgrounds may fit our bill....
