Thunder Travel Plaza - Choctaw, OK (Pilot #556)
Choctaw is the oldest town in Oklahoma (chartered in 1893). Choctaw is truly ``A Great Place To Live`` providing rural comforts for its growing community. Before becoming Thunder Travel Plaza, the Choctaw location had been a truck stop home for the past 40 years (formerly Ed's Truck Stop, then Goose's Truck Stop, and more recently Anderson Travel Plaza). Anderson Travel Plaza was blown away by the May 2010 and completely rebuilt from ground up to be a beautiful facility as it currently stands. We opened doors in June 2012 and were immediately embraced by the community as a forward looking, customer friendly location that strives on good old southern hospitality with modern amenities in a neat, clean and user friendly environment. Choctaw is about 20 minutes east of Oklahoma City, 15 minutes east of Tinker Air Force Base, and 15 minutes north of Lake Thunderbird. We take pride in welcoming all our guests and hope they have a great experience, bidding them safe travels!
