Oklahoma City boasts dozens of unique Western attractions that'll make your vacation extra special. During your Oklahoma City motorhome rental, you'll find many of the top campgrounds are within a few miles of the city's best attractions. However, road conditions in Oklahoma City are poor and parking can be expensive, so consider using public transport or shuttle services to get around.
Once you're in downtown OKC, check out the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum. With a collection of nearly 30,000 artifacts and artworks relating to the Old West, this museum is the largest of its kind in the United States. Campers looking for a Wild West experience for the whole family should spend the day at Frontier City, a Six Flags amusement park with cowboy-themed rides and shows.
Alternatively, if you'd prefer to step off the beaten path and explore Oklahoma's natural landscape, consider visiting Thunderbird Lake State Park. Located 30 miles outside OKC, this state park consists of lush woodlands and grasslands surrounding the 6,000-acre Lake Thunderbird. The lake itself is perfect for various watersports, including fishing, kayaking, boating, and waterskiing. If you're planning a lakeside stroll, be sure to watch out for local bird species, including great blue heron, bald eagle, and red-bellied woodpecker. There's also an RV campground with full hookups at Lake Thunderbird in case you fancy spending the night by the lake.
