We're around Tulsa and are wanting to get out soon but this is our first season with a camper and are leaning towards waiting.
There are campgrounds around here that are open but not too many.
I guess my thinking is that if most cg's wait to de-winterize it is probably due to experience.
Am I being too cautious as a newbie?

I'm from Eufaula. Campgrounds all over the lake nearby. Some close during winter, but a lot of 'em stay open. I usually take my first trip the first or second week in March. I've never had any problems, but kept an eye on the weather just in case.
This year if things work out, I'm looking at going out on the 23rd (a Wednesday) and staying through the weekend. I'll de-winterize and sanitize the weekend before. I'll probably be by myself the first couple of days then my wife will join me for the weekend and possibly a couple of grand daughters.
I want to try and catch the crappie when they're spawning. I'll be at Lake Eufaula State Park. We have a pontoon boat there and they allow the boat owners to fish around the slips. There are 2 camping areas. 1 by the marina that's E&W and the other is about 2 or 3 miles away that's FHU's. I'm not sure which campground I'll use on this trip.
Might as well come on down and join me.
