2021 Oklahoma Campout, October 8-10
« on: June 07, 2021, 11:05:33 PM »
This is a new thread for the Okie Campout.  Oct 8-10, 2021.

Please keep it on topic.

Talimena State Park, near Talihina Oklahoma.

The state of Oklahoma has some new regulations regarding use of state camp grounds , Doug is working hard to sort thru the changes . Anyway , the Talimena state park is now managed at the Wister State Park office , 918 655 7275 , so if you are coming you need to contact them . The state is requiring a parking pass that comes with the reservation , apparently the state is enforcing this seriously .

 Some of you have been asking about when it will be .

 If you have never been to the Ouachita Mountains in SE Oklahoma , ridden the Talimena Drive or the other beautiful roads in the area , there simply isn't anywhere better to spend a few days exploring on a motorbike . The park is located in the Ouchita National Forest , one of the most lush and green places in America , clear mountain streams , light traffic , a wonderful area . The park has nice amenities , first rate , there are two good restaurants in Talihina , and as always , you will not go hungry .

From Doug:

Author: delrod

There are changes to the camping arrangements also.
The pavilion rental is paid. Five tent site's and parking permits are included. That rental and availability is in my name please don't call the park and ask for your name to be assigned to one of those sites. I can see that getting the really screwed up.
I have been told that those tents will be allowed near the pavilion  with limitations.
Tent camping in the grass near the pavilion is currently not being permitted for "safety reasons" .
I was told that the five tents associated with the pavilion will have to be placed adjacent to the RV sites next to the pavilion . Rv 9 &10 are rented to  members of our group.

At this stage everything is workable and like always if you think you are coming GET YOUR RESERVATIONS MADE. RV sites will fill fast and can be cancelled if your plans change

As Dusty already said Harold and Mary are no longer there. Harold passed from complications of --19.

With Harold's absence there is not going to be free firewood like we have enjoyed in the past. We'll probably have to work on that.

I'm sure not the only thing I missed  but worth mentioning is that the parking permit monies are supposed to be funneled to the park they were collected at. From my view that's about the only thing they got right
The new park manager Crystal seems to be good to work with certainly not deserving of any grief over any of these new policies.
I'll get her contact info up later

She floated away the year of the monsoon. She finally called from a Arkansas river sand bar. At least I caught her before she made Little Rock. No tellin' WHAT could have happened to her in NLR!  :thumb:

I guess I should mention I have tent only sites by the pavilion. They said we could plan on five tents that come with the shelter rental

No I have been assured by camp host that accomodations will be made for tent campers. There are still tent spaces available near the shelter house

Really?  When I called and made reservations for a tent site and motorcycle I was told that was a requirement now…so maybe I paid for something that is no longer needed?

To clarify, all campers will be expected to pay. Five tent site allotments come with the fee already paid for the pavilion rental. One of the spots has been spoken for at this point. If someone else would like to claim another send me a PM. I have been assured by management that late arriving tent campers will not be turned away,they will still be expected to pay

Just rode the Talimena Parkway, Ark 88/OK 88. Road in great condition (but rainy and foggy)

Queen W lodge and restaurant is open.  Good lunch.





State Park looks good.





Bell’s Kitchen is open.  But short staffed.   Closes at 2:00.





Hateful Hussy was booming.
