Cushing sits nearly equidistant from the state’s largest population centers: Tulsa and Oklahoma City, being about an hour’s drive from each of them. Cushing is one of the major oil hubs of the United States, with a number of major pipelines intersecting in the area. As such, the town is populated with hundreds of massive oil storage tanks, where the “black gold” can be held until commodity prices rise or it is shipped off to coastal refineries.
There’s more to Cushing than just oil transfers. Fossil fuels may have spurred its development, but the city has grown to encompass retail and service sectors looking to cater to a tourist’s needs.
If you just need a place to lay out the picnic blanket or go for a run when you rent an RV in Cushing, the 40+ acre Memorial Park can be a great place to spend the afternoon. If the sun is shining and the kids need a break from life on the road, take them to the Cushing Aquatic Center where they can swim off some of that excess energy. The park has a few slides and a decent sized pool. There’s also Cushing Lake, a few miles west of the city, which has a boat ramp, picnic tables, and a swimming area.
Alibates Flint Quarries in northern Texas, Ozark National Forest in Arkansas, and Hot Springs National Park are some of the closest national parks or monuments, each of which between a three-and five-hour drive from town. However, when you book an RV in Cushing, you’ll have the freedom to travel and explore the far reaches of this southern region of the United States.
Hot Springs is all about relaxing in the soothing waters of the natural springs, while Alibates focuses on a massive flint mining region that provided the multi-purpose flint mineral to indigenous people for many years.
Ozark National Forest spans over a million acres and features varying terrain, from steep bluffs and rockfaces to river valleys and hardwood forests. You can camp here with the Cushing motorhome rental to better explore this massive forest.
With wide-open spaces in all directions, you shouldn’t have any trouble finding a place to camp with your RV rental near Cushing, OK. Sites with full hookups can be found at Grandstaff RV Park, which is just a couple miles from the downtown area. Another option is Cushing Crossroads RV Park a few miles to the south. If you’re looking for a more rural place to stay, check into Bell Creek RV Park. It also has full hookups for your Cushing camper rental and is a few miles to the southeast, where you’re sure to find some peace and quiet.
The Walmart Supercenter a few miles east of downtown is another spot you could stay with the Cushing travel trailer rental for a night, just be sure to call ahead to confirm your visit with store management.
There aren’t too many major attractions in town and the more or less remote location means that driving your Cushing rental RV a bit farther out of town could be a necessity for a few of the attractions on this list.
Do you see yourself as something of a thrill seeker? Then make a reservation at the Oklahoma Skydiving Center. Tandem jumps are a great way to experience the sport without going through all the training necessary for a solo jump. On the other hand, kids will love the Lost Creek Safari experience as they get the chance to see all kinds of animals up close, including kangaroo, camels, and even a water buffalo. It’s an educational experience they won’t soon forget.
If you’re searching for some historical context for the boom and bust cycle of the surrounding oil towns though, take a look at the Drumright Historical Society Museum. It’s just west of town and exhibits include all kinds of entertaining “only-in-your-city” types of things. For a truly unique experience though, pay a visit to the Osteology Museum in Oklahoma City. It includes all sorts of skeletons, teeth, and other calcified body parts which, while a little creepy at first glance, are actually quite fascinating.
There is a classic bowling alley in town, one of the few places where you can play a few frames in the Cushing area. Stop by on Friday and Saturday evenings for black light games.
