I was very surprised at how nice Osage Cove Campground is. It is right on Kaw Lake and has excellent sites that are very long, have BBQs, prep tables as well as picnic tables, firepits, and electric. I was able to find a site in the clear for my satellite dish. A dump station and water are nearby. Swimming is available at a beach. This is a great park and I have heard many of these are just as nice. I would definitely stay there again and in other such parks.
Headed on west. To pick up Oklahoma for my state map, I chose a slightly longer route dipping down through the top of Oklahoma. I got to drive a small part of the old Route 66 to earn my patch for that. I stopped at my first Corps of Engineers campground near Ponca City on Kaw Lake. There are many of these parks, often near dams and lakes, and I have a book which shows them all with descriptions. Pick up a copy of “Camping with the Corps of Engineers” from any Camping World or online at RVBookstore. Their parks can be very nice and very inexpensive. Theses parks do honor National Access and Golden Age passes for half off the already cheap price.
