While Oklahoma may not have a Buc-ee's we do have Gasquatch! Have you ever heard of this massive gas station, car museum, gift shop, eatery, and world-famous tourist stop in Idabel, OK? This place is EPIC!
It has to be the Sooner State's biggest and best roadside attraction. It's one of the largest and most unique stops in the state. Not to mention that it's the only Big Foot themed mega gas station in all of Oklahoma.
This Big Foot is easy to spot off HWY US-259 in Idabel, OK.
I've never been to Gasquatch before so I'm planning a trip for sometime this summer. This is one of those places you have to visit at least once in your life. It's about 4 and a half hours away from Lawton, Fort Sill.
