The reason for this review is to let everyone know this park may have access for "big rigs," but it is certainly not big rig friendly! We have a 45' motorhome and love staying at parks like this, so based on previous reviews that said this was big rig friendly, we took a chance. First sign of trouble was low bridge shortly after turning off the interstate. Fortunately it was 13'9" clearance, so our awning sensors and cb antenna made it through ok. Next challenge was the extremely narrow two lane road on the way to the park. We don't mind 7 miles off the interstate. We do mind having to "white knuckle" it when a truck comes from the opposite way. Fortunately, we made it to the park with side mirrors intact. Again, extremely narrow up and down roads to get to park and once inside park. Saturday night so only site available that was long enough was on the lake - nice! Problem was, you had to come from the other way to get into it, and to get the other way you had to navigate an even narrower road -up down and around - with BIG trees immediately next to the road. After the whole fiasco of just getting to the park, we decided not to chance our mirrors again and left. We were highly disappointed because it really was a lovely park, it's just not in the least big rig friendly. We camped at Brushy Lake Park in a Motorhome.

This is one of the nicest parks we've stayed in, alto' the city of Sallisaw has taken over the running of it. The park hosts have been there for years, and treat it like their own home. It's as little way off the interstate, but well worth it for the price. The city really needs to promote this small park! We camped at Brushy Lake Park in a Truck Camper.

Nice campground close to Rt40. Lakeside sites are a little older but kept looking good. Only 30amp but that was fine with us. There was some talk about closing this park...so check with them first. We camped at Brushy Lake Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a really nice state park located right on the lake with excellent views of the Cookson Hills. There were only two showers available and the bathrooms were of reasonable cleanliness for a state park. We were about the only people camping here on 70 degree days in early November. There are two brushy trails heading off along either side of the lake to explore. We stayed here for 3 nights and really enjoyed it and would stay here again. We camped at Brushy Lake Park in a Travel Trailer.

This State Park is located 10 miles off of the I-40 and it's well worth the drive. Many of the sites are located right on the lakes edge with a fire ring, barbecue, and picnic table. The RV pads are concrete, level and the view is spectacular especially now with the fall colors. There are 4 pull thru sites, a few tent and 23 back-ins. Plenty of room for awning and slides plus many of the sites can easily fit a big rig and toad. 30amp power was good, along with decent water pressure. Cellphone, Aircard and Sat. reception are good. Boating and fishing are some of the activities available here. There is only one other RV here so we have it to ourselves. This park is a real winner and it's worth the drive. I would have given this park a 10 if it had sewer hookups, although there is a dump station in the park. There is a $2.00 discount for over 62. We will be back if in the area again.
