Description:  Located in the foothills of the Ozarks in eastern Oklahoma on crystal clear Tenkiller Lake, a COE project from the mid 1950’s on the Illinois River.  We stayed on site 18 which is gravel W/E (50A).  There are about 110 wooded sites here with either gravel, paved or concrete sites.  Most sites are W/E 30A (only five 50A which are all first come first serve).  Some are FHU 30A.  There are a total of 44 first come first serve sites.  There is a swim area and two boat ramps.  Also there is a separate Snake Creek Cove Marina.  Practically zero Verizon reception which meant no internet or phone.

Trash and Recycle:  Several blue dumpsters throughout the cg but no recycle.

Activities:  Quiet here during the week.  Great natural setting for walks.  We drove over to the marina for good Verizon reception.
