Finally got our FIRST….that’s right….FIRST camping trip of the year. We took our two oldest granddaughters, Amanda (11) & Madison (12) to Robbers Cave State Park located near Wilburton, OK.
We spent 3 nights over the Labor Day Weekend and had a blast. We did a few of our walk a rounds, went swimming, played miniature golf, roasted marshmallows for smores and just enjoyed the camping experience.
This park was pretty nice. Some spots were tight and small, but there were plenty that could hold a big rig. Interesting history in the area. The one thing I didn’t like, the swimming pool doesn’t open until 1:00 pm. Not a deal breaker, we’ll return.
No problems at all with the tt even though it has been a year since we last took it out. We have only used it driveway camping, letting the grandkids sleep in it every now then. I had sanitized the water system a couple of months ago. We have ran the AC a few times and I did spend most of the day Friday double checking everything, including giving it a good wash job. Keeping it under cover sure does help. It did get close to 100º a couple of days, but the AC did a good job keeping the tt cool. Just couldn’t be happier with my PT LaCrosse. Oh yeah……we did see an Avenger, a Crusader and a Tracer, so the PT trailers are out there.
The truck did fantastic. First diesel I’ve owned and first time pulling the tt. 90% of the trip was on winding, hilly 2 lane roads with more curves and steeper, longer climbs the closer we got to Robbers Cave. There is a really steep climb going into the campground with a horseshoe curve. The truck handled it all with ease. I‘m hooked on diesels for sure now.
Here’s a few pics. Enjoy!
