welcome to the madness from NC
is it true there is only one tree in Oklahoma ?
My daughter and her husband just moved to Tulsa
Mudbone, broken arrow huh? Wow! I work in broken arrow! At the AT&T corporate store in front of the Target. ALSO, I LIVE in Tulsa but Turkey mountain is like 5 minutes from the house. Lol
Geezer, in northeast oklahoma there are actually quite a few wooded areas and not so many plains as out west. Primarily oak and cedar(the most explosive tree in OK!) Down the Illinois River its nothing but forest and river. So lots of places to hang woo hoo!
Hey gunner! It is NOT true ...there are countless trees in Oklahoma however there are PARTS of oklahoma that are nothing but flat plains. I am glad to live in the northeast corner where there is shape to the terrain and lots of wooded forests.
Thank you all for the welcomes! I am so pleased to be here.

Big Welcome from NorTx.....I'm sure you have camped in OK a bunch. Do you have any cool spots you would like to share?
~My therapist has told me that the first step to recovery is admitting my problem, Hello I'm a Hammockolic~
Confession time...I have only camped a few times in OK. I'm not originally from here and never really had the ambition or want to camp alone. Most of my camping experience comes from Kodiak, Alaska and the Appalachians in New Jersey.
However now that I have someone in my life that enjoys the outdoors *almost* as much as I do....I can combine my love for camping with my ultimate passion for kayaking. My discovery of hammock camping has this quickly brewing into an obsession I can feel it.
Now, that being said, I can DEFINITELY tell you a great spot to camp although I've never actually camped there I have kayaked there many times. It is a place called Shell Lake. It is located just west of Sand Springs Oklahoma and is surrounded by miles of state land. It serves as a water supply lake for Tulsa and as such is very untouched by the general public. The lake is not large enough for recreational boating and is too large for avid fishermen in the area(although lots of catfish jugging does occur here). This often results in me having the whole lake to myself when kayaking its many beautiful shorelines (even in the summer!)
I kayak this lake in all seasons and I have also hiked the forests surrounding it as well...and...thinking back and learning about hammock camping as I have been I can only drool at the prospect of setting up in some cool spots!
