When you rent a camper near Sallisaw / Fort Smith West KOA, one of the closest outdoor destinations is Kerr Lake. Sink a line for blue and flathead catfish, crappie, and striped bass, or launch a boat above the dam up to seven miles upstream. If you came for wildlife, watch out for white-tailed deer, raccoons, and several species of waterfowl that call the lake and its surrounding area home.
The ear-splitting honking of up to 20,000 snow geese, the largest concentration in Oklahoma, can be heard at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in November and December. Tucked in the rolling hills of the Ozark Mountains, the refuge marks where the Arkansas and the Canadian Rivers meet, creating a haven for wintering waterfowl and 250 other species of birds. Explore Sequoyah on a seven-mile auto tour or on foot following two one-mile paved walking trails. Late January is best for raptor watching.
Not far away in Spiro, let your imagination carry you back in time to when an area by the elbow of the Arkansas River was the stronghold of prehistoric Mississippian societies that left a dozen earthen mounds before their population declined and dispersed. Retrace the history of this place – considered by some as the "King Tut's tomb" of the ancient US – along nearly two miles of interpreted trails, or join an archaeologist-led tour to better understand the significance of this site.
Sallisaw was once the home of the great Sequoyah, a Cherokee Indian who created the written alphabet of the Cherokee Nation, thus increasing literacy among his people. Pay homage to this remarkable scholar at Sequoyah's Cabin, a one-room log cabin built in 1829 that displays relics and documents associated with his life. Set in a lush 10-acre park, the museum is designated as a National Historic Landmark.
Fourteen nations once occupied Oklahoma, and the influences of the peoples who settled the land can be seen at the 14 Flags Museum near the railroad tracks in the downtown area. Three cabins and a train depot make up the museum: the hand-cut log cabin built by Samuel Lattimore in 1835; the Faulkner Cabin built in the 1840s; the cabin containing artifacts from the Trail of Tears (a series of Native American relocations to Oklahoma); and the Old Sallisaw Train Depot that left a huge impact on the life of the town and state.
Motorhome camping in Sallisaw is made easy because there are a truck stop and more than a dozen gas stations, and about the same number of grocery and convenience stores, that can supply your needs before leaving for a trip out of town.

In the fort grounds, follow the Arkansas River and read the exhibit panels to learn more about the Trail of Tears. Retrace the steps of the condemned on their way to the gallows. If you have enough time, linger at Belle Point for dramatic sunsets.
