Legend says that a Bigfoot can grow up to 15 feet… but they usually just have two…

Today we are discussing the Gasquatch in Idabel, Oklahoma.


For a Bigfoot sighting right from the road, head to Gasquatch in Idabel. Featuring one of the world’s tallest statues of this legendary creature, Gasquatch is not your average highway stop. While you can fuel up and grab some of the best burgers and chicken-fried steak around, you can also view a collection of vintage cars and pickup souvenirs at this stop.  Order up a burger or your favorite diner foods from The Cave Cafe, then take a stroll through the on-site Phila Elite Car Collection Museum. Featuring approximately 15 vintage vehicles and a collection of old neon signs, you won't want to miss the muscle cars on exhibit. Pick up everything from souvenir t-shirts and stickers to stuffed animals and glassware in the Gasquatch gift shop. This Idabel pit stop is one you don't want to miss.



Discover flower power in Idabel, Oklahoma, the "Dogwood Capital of Oklahoma", where springtime tours showcase the area's champion blooming dogwood trees.
