We choose this stop at Terra Starr RV Park, as it was between Branson and Oklahoma City, our next destination.  We were looking for an overnight stop, and although it was about 10 miles off I-40 out of Checotah, we chose it as it was a Coast to Coast park.

The park was nice, and the staff was very nice and accommodating.  We were able to get a very level and long pull-through site so we didn’t have to unhook, with full hookups, and some shade.  I forgot to take a photo of the site.

The park had the usual amenities – restrooms, showers, laundry facilities, clubhouse, pavilion, playground, miniature golf, basketball court, tennis court, volleyball net, swimming pool, softball/baseball backstop, fishing, boating, fish cleaning station, free WiFi as well as games, puzzles, and books to read in the clubhouse.

This park is about 10 miles from town, so plan ahead before going out.  There is a big lake nearby – Lake Eufaula.

Lake Eufaula is a large reservoir in the U.S. state of Oklahoma, covering 646 square miles (1,676 km2). It is the largest lake in Oklahoma and the 15th-largest in the United States. The lake was created by the construction of Eufaula Dam on the Canadian River, which was completed in 1960. The dam is owned and operated by the Tulsa District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The lake extends about 100 miles (160 km) upstream into Oklahoma, forming part of the border with Texas.

The lake has been a popular recreation area for residents of both states since its creation. There are six state parks located around the lake, as well as numerous other public and private recreational areas. The fishing is excellent, with bass, catfish, crappie, and bream being among the most popular catches. There are also numerous marinas and boat ramps around the lake.
