RV Rental in Oklahoma City, OK

There are also several nice RV parks in the area, ranging from fancy to basic, depending on your taste.
For those Cruise America RVers who are new to the OKC area, or who don’t already have an itinerary planned out, here is a suggestion that will leave nobody disappointed. It's called Bricktown. Back in the late 1800's there were four railroad companies that operated in the old east side downtown OKC, making up the majority of the business district. It was about 1898 when the first brick structures started to appear in the area. They started out as small two to three story buildings, but they began to be built taller as time went on. The name was adopted simply because of the brick buildings that had been constructed. It was the great depression that was the demise of the thriving community, eventually leaving it a cluster of old, abandoned buildings. In the 1990’s Oklahoma City Mayor, Ron Norick oversaw the renovation of the decrepit downtown area, and it became a vibrant, bustling entertainment Mecca.
Now RV travelers can venture from one of the many RV parks in the area to visit Bricktown. There they will find a beautiful winding canal, upon which boat taxis and river tours are thriving. Along the canal you will find theatres, restaurants, museums, trolleys and sculpture-decorated walking paths. There are also major concerts and special events that take place in the many event centers there, one of which is the Ford Center, the base camp of the OKC Thunder. While in the downtown area, you may wish to visit the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum. Also nearby you will find the Remington Park Race Track and Casino, the Oklahoma Science Museum, the Oklahoma Zoo and various theaters.
For an enjoyable time, take a river cruise on the Oklahoma River, or watch one of the many rowing and swimming events. Oklahoma City is host to several festivals, such as the Oklahoma State Fair, the Oklahoma City International Auto Show, the Red Earth Festival, as well as the OKC Summer Classic Dog Shows.
For a great daytrip from OKC, consider taking an RV journey along the old Route 66 all the way to Weatherford. Along the this famed highway you will pass through historical El Reno, cross the bridge of Geary, see the age-old renowned Lucille's Service Station in Hydro, and finally arrive in the town of Weatherford, where you will hopefully visit Lucille's Roadhouse for some of the American favorite dishes like the hand-breaded chicken fried steak.
The RV parks in the area are top-notch, and you will find what you want with all the amenities you wish to enjoy. They are a serene alternative to the busy nightlife of the downtown area, and you have no schedule you need to follow. With one of our Cruise America Oklahoma City RV rentals, you can come and go as you please, and you needn’t adhere to anyone’s schedule but your own.
