Cherry Hill Park – Review

It was simply getting too cold in Iowa for us to stay any longer so we started the trek to Texas and on the way, we decided to stop in Tulsa, Oklahoma to check things out over Thanksgiving.

The staff was very friendly when we checked in and the park was clean (with your usual exceptions of some people not taking care of their homes). With our Good Sam membership, it cost $30 per day for a back-in full hookup site. We were given site 212 which was a corner site with heavy tree growth to the south (no DirecTV).

This is not somewhere that we would come back to if in the Tulsa area due to the Network issues, no South site line (for Satellite) and the general feel of the park and long term tenants.

Review Details

Is the campground scenic and fun to just walk around?

The park is located in an industrial park, so while scenic from most sites, a 5 min walk in any direction puts you either next to water treatment plants, heavy machinery shops or walking next to a concrete drainage channel.


Are the sites shady for your RV?

The sites are shady for the most part, the only issue with this is if you have a roof mount satellite, you will likely not get coverage.


Are there enough full hookups?

Connections were good as far as having water, sewer and electric. The facility could use an upgrade to the actual connections to bring them current.


is 50 AMP service available?

No issues with the 50amp power.


How is the Campground Wifi?

As many of our readers know, we live on the internet. We use the internet to watch movies, work, play etc… Having mobile internet is what makes this lifestyle work for us.

When we pulled into this campground, we started having issues with our Verizon Hotspot. When I say issues, I mean we had to reboot our hotspot every 10 minutes because it would no longer provide access out to the internet. After a ton of reading and research, it appears that this location is so heavy with signals, that are hotspot has trouble finding open channels to transmit on, we tried tethering, static channels and every other setting to no success. Due to our issues (in general) with public Wifi, we did not connect to the parks wifi to test that out.


Is there Verizon 4G LTE service?

We had 5 full bars of LTE service (first time at a campground with 5 full bars!)


Is there any on-site entertainment?

Nothing going on that we were made aware of.


How far away are local food establishments?

This is in the city proper, so not far to nearly anything you might want to do in Tulsa.


Do they pick up garbage onsite?

Garbage is picked up onsite on Tuesday's and Friday's. You simply leave it at the curb and a garbage truck comes through each street like they do in residential neighborhoods.


Are there ‘walking' trails onsite?

There are great walking paths onsite and also across the street from the park entrance. We did not see much traffic on either of the paths.


is there food on-site?

No food onsite at all.


Can you get DirecTV service?

We were unable to get any satellite service due to heavy trees to the south on on site.


Any ‘Hiking' trails on-site or nearby?

Since Cherry Hill is in the middle of the city, there are not any ‘hiking' trails on site. They do have walking paths, just not hiking.


Are there fire-pits at each site or communal?

There is a no open fire rule in this park, so no camp fires at all.


how easy is the campground to find?

Cherry Hill is 5 minutes off of I-44, super easy to find compared to parks that are out in the country. Easy signage and when we made the reservation over the phone, the person made sure to give us directions before we hung up.

What to say about myself... I love technology, learning new things and making awesome products for our clients. Traveling and living this 'nomad' life wasn't even in my thinking until I met CJ. Here we are, traveling around, working and living with nearly all of the comforts of home... Who would have ever imagined...
