Red Rock Canyon S.P OK

Map picture

We chose our next stop to be in between Oklahoma City and Red Rock Canyon S.P for obvious reasons ,in Oklahoma we will be meeting with a “friend”   from the  face book for the first time,it is interesting and we are very looking forward to finally meet.

A casino with a “C.G” on the parking lot is our “home” for the next few nights,each site has full hook ups,yes FULL H/U ,a table and an open view to a huge meadow,there were 4 other RV’s occupying half of the sites and it was FREE.

Gambling is not our “thing” but we walked in for a visit especially to cool off and escape the 100 F outside.

On the next morning we visited Red Rock Canyon S.P just 35Miles West from the Casino.

It sure was a pleasant surprise to see the colors of the huge rocks in this huge flat plateau .

It is a small S.P but has a RV and Tent camp ground,picnic tables ,swimming pool and some hiking trails.

On our visit there were only 2 RV’s in the whole S.P ,but I am sure they will have more coming in during the Labour Day weekend.

The Historic Hwy 66 still has its nostalgic flavour but it is loosing it to tourist restaurants,Indian Trading Posts and other businesses that have nothing to do with the good old Hwy 66 and that is a shame.

Just before El Reno stands Historic Fort Reno,a military post established 1874 to provide security in Cheyenne and Arapaho lands,at time home to buffalo soldiers ,9th & 10th Cavalries,it also served as German prisoner of war camp during WW2,in 1947 the fort turned to USDA for agriculture research.

We stayed at a Casino with water/electric and a dump station for free near Oklahoma City. What a great deal. Especially in 100 degree weather. Sure hope it starts cooling down soon. So neat that you get to meet up with a FB friend.
