“Good hosts, good accessibility, just a place to stay, though”
I believe its important to recognize the importance of good camp hosts. Hosts Donetta and her husband (didn’t catch his name), were very friendly, very helpful. We were skeptical at first of the location, and asked if we paid for a week rate, could we just double down to get the month rate at the end of the week. I was told I could and we paid $175 before the week was up essentially adding 3 more weeks for another $175, since the monthly rate $350. (Though we actually left at 3 weeks.) Very flexible and mightily appreciated.
On to the details. The park is mostly full- to semi-permanent residents from what I could tell. Obviously, having been there only three weeks, I could not say for certain exactly how permanent the residents were, but most RV’s were older, lots of accumulated stuff gathered around the spots. In addition, at least one RV (very run down, tattered awning) had grey-painted, custom-cut plywood underpinning. There are a few of the pull through spots reserved near the front, it seems, for more transients. There were some folks that came in for one night, and there were some that came in for a week. Most of the RV’s, both constant and brief, seemed to be maintained fairly well, with some exceptions.
Every resident we met was very pleasant. I would say it’s your typical “Oklahoma crowd”. There were children playing in the adjacent fields, but not rambunctious by any means. Several people stopped to talk about our dog with us. One RV family grilled hamburgers what seemed to be every night. There was a Vietnam vet Harley rider and one night when walking our dog, I saw him sitting near the hamburger-folks, quietly playing a guitar and singing. There really wasn’t any noise to speak of. It IS very close to US-69, which eventually turns into US-75 through Dallas. But it’s on a curve on 69 and we never really heard any engine braking or truck noise that was bothersome, at least once the doors were closed and the A/C running!
The campground has Wifi, but... we could never use it. There's some really weird delay in everything involving it. I could never get our WifiRanger to really work with it, and the phones / tablets would connect, but just take forever to bring up anything. Not slow, per se, but delayed. We finally gave up after a couple of days of trying to use it for work. We have T-Mobile, and the signal was just not that good. Bars were plentiful, 3-4, but it felt like there was a lot of interference keeping the quality and speed down. I can't speak to other cell networks.
Our pull-through site wasn't super level. Our stairs always felt weird and the back end of the fifth wheel was pretty high. Using jack pads (the yellow Lego style) compensated easily enough.
The hosts were out twice during our three weeks mowing all the grass in the area. Each had a riding mower and they were getting it knocked out. Our power junction box had been freshly painted. (In fact, I had to unstick the little door latch to get it open.) These hosts were definitely taking care of things.
There is a large metal building on the property. I couldn’t tell if it was being rebuilt, built for the first time or being taken down or even what the building was for. There were several large piles of boards and metal sheets around the building.
There is a laundry facility, and while I peeked in the windows one time, I never went in. (We have on-board washer/dryer.) There is a code to get in, and I couldn’t recall what it was.
There are two dumpsters, one at the far end away from the entrance and the other behind the laundry / office area. The would get pretty full. I suspect the truck coming to empty them got called, that it was not scheduled.
The entry and pathways where you drive are all gravel. Just before we left a new pile of gravel had been brought in. However, in the grass around several of the parking areas (including ours, for sure) and in various areas of the surrounding fields, there grows a … I don’t know what it’s called. I want to say “fungus”, but I’m no scientist. I can say that it looks like spinach leaves, and when it’s been warm and dry, it shrivels up and is no big deal, other than a weird black looking plant. When it’s wet, though, beware! It’s very, very slippery. (Ask me how I know…)
We travel with our motorcycles, so we parked the F-350 in the overflow area, which was big enough for about four vehicles. We used one, the park hosts used one, but only once or twice was there another vehicle. This is labeled “Visitor Parking”, as well.
One of the things that I really liked best about Country View was the large field areas in front, to the side and behind the campground proper. The wife and I like to get out and do a little walking and certainly walk the dog. The property to the side has a fence, and they have a few cows. There was a calf who was very curious about our dog, and both the calf and our dog were trepidatious of each other while meeting at the fence. There’s a pond near the “storage parking”, and the hosts always made sure to mow a nice path so you could walk to it. Also there are several varieties of wildflowers around.
We would likely stay a Country View again, though only for 2 weeks at most, I suspect. Wagoner is an interesting small Americana town, but lacks some of the bigger chains like Home Depot or even Harbor Freight. Tulsa is about 45 to 60 minutes away, and we ventured that way several times during our stay.
Will and Lucinda would stay here again
