The campground that wasn't

So we follow the Devil-box to Snowdale state park.

It was immediately obvious that it had been abandoned to the lake, for ages.



I don't know if this was recent flooding, or a longer term plan to raise the water level of the lake, or what...



But there were about 30 abandoned RV's with extensive water damage, the road out there was trashed,



and it was just kind of strange and surreal -- think "Andromeda Strain". Even now, when I google "Snowdale state park" I don't get any hits that explain what happened. Even the OK state park website makes it seem really nice:

"Visitors to the park will find a lighted boat ramp, swimming beach, playground, volleyball court, comfort station with showers, RV sites, tent campsites, picnic tables and a group picnic shelter."

Uh... I don't think so!
