The only place on the lake is Beavers Bend Resort State Park. Read the reviews on www.rvparkreviews.com under Broken Bow. The state park is about 3.5 miles north of Broken Bow off US259. We drove thru one of the campground loops and our observation was that the road was narrow and in poor condition. Some of the sites were not level.
Not many RV parks to choose from near Broken Bow.
We stayed in Broken Bow behind the hotel next to the casino. Basic park, full hookups $25 per night. There are several Corps of Engineers parks on Hugo Lake and Pine Creek Lake west of Broken Bow. Look on www.recreation.gov for those.
To get to Broken Bow from Plano, I would take US75 north to US82 east to US271 north to US70 east to US259 north. The park is north of the town of Broken Bow.
There is a Walmart in Broken Bow but don't recall it being a super center. There is a Walmart Super Center in Idabel a few miles southwest. There are a few restaurants and convenience stores near the state park and in Broken Bow.
It's a beautiful area. Enjoy your trip!

BB camp sites are first come/first served with the exception of the Buckeye loop which is reservable. Tons to do at BB. It is one of my favorite parks. I have been there many, many times and I do not remember ever having an unlevel site. There are very nice concrete pad sites next to the river in the Acorn Loop. Primo, hard to get. If you can score the last site in the Acorn loop, you will be all by yourself with no neighbors! There are also many nice sites in the adjacent Cypress loop (not concrete). You should not have too much trouble with your 5ver. I see tons of them in there all the time. Not sure of the best route for you. I am in NE Texas and just shoot up SH 37 to Idabel then up to Broken Bow. BTW, There is a SMALL WalMart in Broken Bow. Pretty small town so don't expect too much. Have fun!! Beavers Bend is awesome!!!

I believe there is virtually no TV signal and no Wifi. I'm pretty sure I remember we got no TV signal. Maybe there is wifi near the office but don't know for certain. Heck, I had to drive up to the dam on the lake to get a phone signal.
I would take I-30 to US-259. Going through Paris, up to Hugo and across US-70 might be more scenic, but will be slower.
Broken Bow has a Walmart but it may not be a SuperCenter. If not, there is a PigglyWiggly.
TV? I don't think so, unless you get up really high for a line of sight. The campgrounds are down in a hole, slightly above river level, with hills all around. Closest are a couple of stations in Paris, one in Texarkana; don't know if there are any low-power repeaters closer. Broken Bow is in the Sherman market, with respect to higher power broadcast stations.
I don't know that any of the Oklahoma state parks provide WiFi connections in the campground. There is a McDonald's in Broken Bow.
You are going to the edge of a wilderness, won't be a lot of urban amenities.
