I would have to say if I have ever missed an RV Park it would be the one nestled between Locust Grove and Salina here in Oklahoma. Lakesides Terrace Loop. Yea yea, I may be a little sentimental about it. Being as that Is where Dillon and I first met, and also where we had our last first kiss. ♥
⇐ [That is not our first kiss but it is in the same spot]
Any-who, sorry for the sappy moment! But It was a great RV park by the lake. We stayed on the other side of the road tho which was very secluded, shady, and quite. It backed up to a wooded area. The lots weren’t super huge but the owner tried to space us all out a bit and since it was mostly the crew we are all pretty used to living close anyways. The owner was really laid back, and he was great with the upkeep!
As far as the towns around, I’ll start with Locust Grove, Oklahoma. [Population 1,404] It’s the first town we came through, and it’s a little bigger! Locust Grove has a Neighborhood Market, (which is newish it went in while we were there, thank goodness!) Dollar General, Harps, Sonic, Dollar Tree, Mazzios, and a few other places I can’t think of at this moment. [I’ve been to a lot of places give me a break] It has a Very nice Best Western. (We stayed in it a few times, you’ll understand shortly) There is a Mexican restaurant, La Mansion, we ate there once wasn’t a huge fan. (I’ll tell you a better one, give me a few minutes) The Country Cottage was good, it’s a buffet style restaurant. Good home cooked meals. On Saturday and Sunday, they also do a breakfast buffet. The laundromat in Locust is a place I could never miss. Turner’s Laundry, that place needs a name like Root Canal or Menstrual Cramps. Yea Y’all, it’s that awful. It was clean, it had new washers, and they all worked. It wasn’t the laundromat its self, was the people who run it. They watch everything you do, so don’t breath wrong, don’t even try to take their baskets outside even if you have a broken arm [I know from experience]
Ok, I’m going to reign my self in here because I could go on and on about how awful those old women are. But consider yourself fair warned.
I’m moving on to Salina, Oklahoma. [Population 1,384] Oh man where to start, it’s a little town with big heart. It has a Harps, Dollar General, and I think that there is a laundromat there now. It has the best Mexican Restaurant I’ve ever eaten at, and the owner, Hector is great. Los Coco’s, OMG if you ever go there get the combo Fajita Chimichangas, and try their Charo Beans, oh and I also like the Pollo Cameron. [Ok I’m officially hungry now! Sorry, talking about food makes me excited!] Here is one of our many family get-togethers At Los Coco’s →
They have two small (Mom & Pop) DQ type burger/ice cream places. Dairy Deal, and Pig-N-Out, we have gotten ice cream from Pig-N-Out a few times because they are open later that Dairy Deal. And then there is
… (drum roll please)…
Salina Highbanks Speedway, and the Finishline Restaurant! [Now do you get it, we still go to Salina a lot] The owners are friends of the family now, good people! The restaurant is good, overlooks the racetrack, sweet waitress in there too! (Best steak I’ve ever at a restaurant) The racetrack is very well managed lots of fun. My only complaint is the beer is a little expensive there, but as I understand that keeps people from getting to wasted. [I spend lot of time here and can’t see it changing anytime soon]
Both of these towns are fairly close to Pryor, Ok. [Population 9,520] It’s the closest bigger town. It’s got a little bit of everything. That’s where the normal Walmart is. It’s about a 20 min drive.
I know this was a long post, it is about two towns tho. They are small, but we did spend the longest time there and still head back quite often. It’s kinda like another home for us. It’s not too far from where I grew up in Wagoner, Ok.
