KOA Tulsa NE / Will Rogers Downs KOA Journey - Claremore, OK

KOA - Will Rogers Downs

We spent Sunday night in the Tulsa NE / Will Rogers Downs KOA Journey.  The campground is located just outside of Claremore, OK.  A couple of miles off of I-44.    First thing of note is that this is located at  the Cherokee Casino / Will Rogers Downs Track, so if lost, follow the signs there.  It was rather unique to drive up and see the campground next to a reasonably large horse track.  Did not even see the casino until we got to the park, it seemed rather small.  The campground was pretty large with over 100 sites and overflow sites in the racetrack parking lot.

Our site was a back-on site right across the road from the office.  Good in that we were close to the bath house.  Bad in that there was a flood light on at the office and we had to block the light out on the cabin door window.  Our site also backed up to the track.  Had the ponies been running we would have had nice seats from our site to watch at the turn.  Well timing is everything and we missed out.

Being at the casino/track, there was food available for dine-in or takeout.  We did not check it out,  but it was available and it was only a flat,  couple of hundred yard walk to get there.

The site was nice and level.  It had been raining before we got there so there was some mud but the site was well drained so no standing water.  All the amenities were there, but no cable tv.  We did get a good number of stations using the antenna.

The bath house was connected to the office.  The showers were large and clean.  No issues there.

We would have no problems staying there again.  The only downside was there were no trees but I guess they would interfere with the view of the track.  Got to decide if you want shade or horses.

  1. Good to know this info. I may pass through there someday as I have family nearby and relations from Tulsa. I have been to Claremore to see The Will Rogers Museum.
