Preliminary plan AR & OK

Jump to last reply

I'm in the early stage of planning a trip to Oklahoma & Arkansas (probably concentrating on Petite Jean State Park). Some background - my husband and I have visited 48 states, so far, missing these two. We had a camper for many years; drove cross-country several times, including to Alaska. I did not start out with the intention to include all 50 states, but now that we are so close, I want to complete it. We no longer have the camper. Recently we are doing fly/drive trips.

For this trip we will have approximately a week. I am considering flying into OKC from the east coast, touring OKC, driving to Petite Jean State Park, and flying out of Little Rock. Will have to consider rental car drop-off fees between these states. This could be reversed. We like to concentrate on state/national parks and scenic by-ways, whenever possible.

Any suggestions regarding time of year? Thinking about this October, although Fall colors would not be a priority, as we live close to Vermont. Weather conditions would be more important to us (avoiding OK high tornado season or rainy season in AK).

I'm sure I have not yet thought out all the important questions to ask, but am hoping to get a start here. Thank you.
