The Echota Village RV Park in Tahlequah, Okla., is prepping to open.

The United Keetoowah Band of Cherokee Indians in Oklahoma will soon open its new RV park on State Highway 10, next to the Illinois River, according to the Tahlequah Daily Press.

After some delay the park is expected to open “in the next week or so,” according to Assistant Chief Jamie Thompson.

“We have our dump station to complete,” Thompson said. “We also want to dress up the sites and number them all. We want it to open in time for the [Medicine Stone] concert on the river.”

Thompson said the Echota Village RV Park will be open year-round and will feature water and electric hookups for 16 vehicles. Electrical attachments of 30 and 50 amps will be available for $40 a night Thursday-Sunday and $35 a night Monday-Wednesday. A minimum three-night stay will be required and reservations will be accepted.

Short-range plans call for the inclusion of an on-site store marketing snacks, drinks and camping equipment and primitive campsites available for $12 a night.

The immediate delay has been getting the dump station online. Widespread repairs were needed for the water system and there are no plans to include sewer hookups. After opening with the dump station the short-range plans call for construction of a shower facility.
