RE: Oklahoma Northeast

Ok we spent 4 days at Belle Star COE 25C. View of the water. Wish I could post a picture. We now are north of Belle Star about 1 1/2 Hours at Rocky Point COE on Ft Gibson lake. 002A. Pull through view of lake, grill table w/e 30/50. Nice $10 day. Hoping the rest of the trip is as nice. Correction Twin Bridges State Park.

RE: Oklahoma Northeast

We stayed at Mustang Run RV park near Oklahoma City. It has to be one of the nicest RV parks we ever stayed in. All the roads and sites are concrete. There is a pool and a dog run. The bathrooms are super nice and the rates for a full hookup campground were good. We stayed there 2 or 3 years ago and the price was $44 a night. The only downside is it's hard to find the entrance. It's located behind a hotel. But in my opinion,it's as nice as Ft Wilderness in Disney World but a lot cheaper. We haven’t stayed there yet. Good to know. We normally stay at Roadrunner off of I-35. More for doing things In OKC then camping.

RE: Oklahoma Northeast

garmp - First we are traveling 3-4 hrs. across the state to Belle Star COE space C25. back of RV faces Eufaula Lake off Hwy 69 south of I-40. Then going to Rocky Point COE on Ft. Gibson north of I-40 on Hwy 69. 00A, RPOI. First time there. Then heading to Natural Falls State Pk CG.north of I-40 close to the border of AR. Then heading to Twin Bridges Area at Grand Lake Park. My mistake it is a State Park on Grand Lake not a COE. Husband made that resv. That was a strange resv. we had to get a parking permit(?) new to us. Then we are headed to Thibaut Point COE on Harry S. Truman Lake, MO. Meeting friends for the weekend. Then back to Hawthorne Bluff COE NE of Tulsa. Yes we have reservations for all the stays. Oklahoma State Parks you have to have a reservation. Not sure on the COE, but I think you do also. If you have any questions let me know. We have stayed at a lot of the parks in Oklahoma. All the COE that we have stayed in so far have been really nice.

RE: Oklahoma Northeast

agesilaus - I just thought maybe someone had a favorite in the area. Husband uses RVparky, I use reviews and peoples suggestions. Thanks Looking at Flat Rock Creek or Blue Bill COE, Cookson Bend COE, Cowlington Point COE, They all sound nice. Wasn't sure if all the flooding they had effected any of them? Any Favorites camping with 35 ft Fifth. Would like to see the water if possible. Small dog, just the two of us, no boat. We are working our way to Natural Falls CG. Thanks.

RE: Oklahoma Northeast

Belle Star COE is SW of Natural Falls, we stayed there in June. Along with Heber Springs and Canadian COE parks in OK. OK has lots of COE parks, which almost makes up for its terrible roads. We stayed at Belle Star and Hugo Lake Kiamichi COE in July really nice. I’ll check out Heber Springs and Canadian COE. Thanks we love COEs. Sorry this posted twice. Couldn’t delete

RE: Nice COE campgrounds

Agree completely about COE. We have stayed in a couple of these mentioned. Just thought I'd document the Paris/Eiffel Tower with a photo: (Veteran's Memorial on the right.) Great picture. We had the sun and didn't get a great picture. Plus the Veteran's Memorial was impressive.

Nice COE campgrounds

I thought I would post some very nice COE campgrounds we have camped at in the last two weeks. First on was in Ozark, AR Aux Arc COE, off of I-40 nice people back in sights some with view of the lake, lots of trees, picnic table long sights. Second one was on Eufaula Lake, OK called Belle Star. Nice tables and picnic area and spot well manicured lawns etc. Third - COE Hugo Lake Kiamichi Park. Signs inside park could be better for directing you to cg. But the sites were very nice. Ours overlooked the lake. Our site had table with cover/cement. Nice. Not too much in town. But Mt. Olivet Cemetery where circus famous circus people are buried. Beautiful and unique head stones. Nice. We also drove to Paris, TX 30 miles south while we were at the COE, to see the Eiffel Tower. We were surprised to see next to the Eiffel tower a Memorial for Military and it was being worked on so we got to talk with the workers. We were very impressed. We have been pleased to find many COE that have been nicely done. Plus as my husband said nice to have the old man pass discount. $11. night.

RE: Catching Cleaning Cooking Trout, A Refresher Course!

Gut the fish and leave the head on. Pack the inside cavity with salsa and wrap in foil. No butter. Toss onto grill or in coals for a few minutes each side. Remove the fish gently open the foil and grab by the head as you open the foil. The skin will stick to the foil. Grab the head and gently shake and the head and entire skeleton will come out, leaving just meat and salsa. Simple, quick, easy and great tasting. Hmmm, Must try! Thanks,,, I'll have to try cooking them this way. We stuff the cavity with baby shrimp some times. Or just season cavity. Haven't tried the foil. We just use a pan with holes. So easy leaving the head and tail on. We just start loosing the meat with fork and it comes right off the bones. Now we just need to go trout fishing!

RE: Ol' Blue

Ol'Blue recipes are still in the archive files. Here is one of many favorites of Debbie's (Ol'Blue). These pork chops turn out moist and full of flavor. A great company meal without all the work. Enjoy! Debbie Stuffed Cordon Bleu Pork Chops 8 PORK LOIN CHOPS; Thick Cut. 8 slice(s) CANADIAN STYLE BACON 4 slice(s) SWISS CHEESE; Thin Deli, Cut In Half. 1 teaspoon(s) GARLIC POWDER SALT; To Taste. BLACK PEPPER; To Taste. BREAD CRUMBS; I Use Panko. OIL 2 EGGS 3 tablespoon(s) MILK _____ With a sharp knife cut a pocket into each pork chop, working your knife around to make a good size pocket. I find it is easier if the chops are slightly frozen. Place half a slice of cheese folded up on a slice of canadian bacon, folded over so the canadian bacon looks like a taco. Stuff open end of canadian bacon into pocket so the folded side of bacon is facing towards you. Repeat with remaining pork chops. Make egg wash by whisking together the eggs and milk; set aside. In a shallow dish mix together bread crumbs, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Dip pork chops in egg wash and then bread crumbs; pressing crumbs onto pork chops while pressing together the pockets to seal. Place on a shallow baking sheet lined with foil and coated well with a some oil. Bake at 375 for 45 to 50 minutes or until pork chops are cook through turning pork chops over 3/4 of the way through baking. Serves 8. I make these just using two pork chops for hubby and I. Great to serve company.

RE: Ol' Blue

I was so sad she passed away. I have a few of her recipes that I have made several times. Wish I had gotten her cookbook.

RE: Reuben Casserole

We make it with store bought Thousand Island dressing, sauerkaraut, swiss cheese. Also rye bread broken up. Like Super Dave posted. Been making this for years. So easy and good.

RE: Fish Chowder

This is long but worth the time. I recommend the raw sea food mix and frozen shrimp. The final product freezes well for camping. Fish Chowder 1 ½ pounds of catfish or tilapia or cod (no salmon) or 2lb frozen raw seafood mix 1 ½ pounds of shrimp raw, peeled and divined or 1lb frozen cocktail shrimp tail removed 2 cups of red potatoes ,peeled, medium chop 1 cup celery chopped medium fine 1 cup carrots medium fine chopped ½ cup parsley chopped fine 1 large onion medium/ fine chopped 2 cubic inches of salt pork sliced into thin small squares. 4 Tbs butter ½ cup flour 1 cup milk Salt and pepper 2 Tbs olive oil Cut fish and shrimp into about one inch cubes. I have used small raw small shrimp whole. Heat olive oil in a pan and sauté salt pork for a bit and add onions. Add a bit of salt & pepper. Sauté till onions are translucent. Reserve everything from the pan in a bowl. Fill a 6 Quart pot with; potatoes, celery, carrots and parsley. Plus more salt and pepper to taste. Add water to the pot to cover everything. Then add the reserved salt pork and onions. Bring to a boil. Then turn down heat to a simmer and cover the pot. Melt the butter in a medium heat pan and add flour. Mix completely and then turn down the heat and add the milk, stirring to make a rue. When the potatoes are 3/4 cooked, add the rue and stir it in well. Adjust salt and pepper and cover the pot. When the potatoes are almost fork tender, add the fish. Cover the pot and simmer for five minutes. Adjust salt and pepper and add shrimp and simmer covered for five minutes. This makes maybe three quarts of chowder. It freezes well. Great with fresh corn bread as a meal. The more shrimp the better. Tilapia worked well. Catfish chunks are better & cheaper. I substituted two Aldi one lb. bags of their frozen “Fremont seafood mix” that is now in stock and added a pound of frozen cocktail shrimp cut into thirds. All the sea food went in frozen so I had to bring it all back to a boil for two minutes then simmer. This is a Civil War field cook book recipe with shrimp I added. I removed 3 eggs from rue. This was so good and easy to make. I used frozen raw seafood mix and shrimp. Otherwise followed recipe. It was great and AJR was right that it froze perfectly and tasted just as good when we had it again. Thanks. Deb
