You’re invited to the First Annual “Wi-Camp-A-Lotta” Vintage Trailer Birds and Blooms Glamporee at Lake Wister State Park, Wister, OK on April 13-16, 2023.
Get your camp counselor gear ready, and head to Kiamichi Country for a weekend of vintage “summer camp-style” fun at beautiful Lake Wister State Park near Wister, OK.
Dust-off those binoculars, find your favorite hiking boots, toss in your fishing pole and head-out for the fresh, spring air at Lake Wister! Throughout the weekend, our camp counselors will have multiple opportunities to earn merit badges in bird-watching and wildflower identification.
Friday night we will host a very special “Bird-Day” Party with cake and “tweets” at the Mess Hall for our resident “bird-nerd” and camp-host, Tammy. April 14th is her special day!
Saturday night will feature a potluck dinner at the Mess Hall for all camp counselors. Be sure to bring your camp vests, camp pendants, canteens, flashlights, whistles, clipboards, and wear your best vintage camp counselor attire for an evening of “camporee-style” food, fun and fellowship. While enjoying the camporee, you can opt for total relaxation, or join the group throughout the weekend for a variety of camp activities including, paint by numbers, kayaking, archery, skeet shooting, biking, fishing, crafting classes, design-a-camp flag, and of course, campfire songs and s’mores!
Nestled in a ring of pine and oak covered mountains: the Sans Bois, Jackforks, Kiamichis and Ouachitas, Lake Wister State Park welcomes wildlife watchers, nature photographers, vintage camping enthusiasts and anyone wishing to escape into the great outdoors. The Poteau River, Oklahoma's only river that flows north, feeds into Lake Wister along with the Fourche Maline and a half dozen or more mountain streams providing fresh cool water perfect for fishing. Our Vintage Trailer Camporee campground at Victor Landing has brand new individual, private bathrooms and bathhouses just steps from our campsites.
Lake Wister State Park is approximately 2 hrs 15 min from Tulsa, 3 hrs from OKC, 1 hr. 40 min from Fayetteville, AR, and 4 hrs from Dallas, TX.

Meet the hosts (aka “Wi-Camp-A-Lotta” Directors): Scott and Tammy Parks are the proud owners of four vintage camping trailers, and are new to the hobby. They first purchased a 1963 Cardinal canned ham trailer (for restoration) in June of 2022, a camping-ready 1957 Catolac Deville in July of 2022, and a 1952 Comet (for restoration) and a camping-ready 1957 Shasta 1500 in the Fall of 2022. They have attended four vintage camping rallies between Sept. to Nov. of 2022 with the Green Country Vintage Glampers, and have loved every outing! Scott and Tammy have one son, Carson age 5, and enjoy spending time in the great outdoors. In his free time, Scott enjoys tinkering/restoring old cars/trucks, and Tammy is an avid bird-watcher and nature-lover. They have 60 acres near Howe, OK. Scott has been the Superintendent at Howe Public Schools for 24 years. Tammy also works at HPS as the Dir. of Instructional Technology/Federal Programs and teaches Multimedia Journalism and Computer Science
