Autumn may feel more like a state of mind than outside temps that are brisk and cool, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy some fall camping trips over weekends or even day trips with your pals. Take a look at a few scenic drives and destinations just a little north of our new and used RV dealerships in Jolly and Wichita Falls, TX. Hit the road for a fall camping trip in Oklahoma!
Wichita Mountains Scenic Byway
This gorgeous scenic byway in Oklahoma gives you breathtaking views of the peaks and valleys of the Wichita Mountains. You’ll spot wildlife ranging from bison to elk to wild turkeys.

Talimena Scenic Drive
Another stunning scenic byway in Oklahoma is the Talimena Scenic Drive. Don’t rush this one…you’ll want to take time to stop, take photos, explore, or just take in the view. The website includes this teaser:
One breathtaking panorama follows another as this National Forest Scenic Byway winds along forested mountain tops…Here you can enjoy the four distinct seasons of the Ouachita National Forest at their best. Wildlife is abundant in the area and you may be lucky enough to spot a black bear or a roadrunner crossing the road as you drive across the mountains.
Historic Route 66
We’d be remiss if we didn’t mention the Route 66 Scenic Byway. This famous, historic route connects the Midwest to the Pacific, and it’s truly like a step back in time. It covers several states, so if you’re up for a lengthier – and unforgettable – road trip, carve out time to go the distance. Learn more about the byway here.
