Clean Showers & Restrooms
A few food choices
Small Parking Lot
Not Many Amenities
All in all, a nice place tho stop in for the night, grab a bite and shower. It's always humid here, so a lot of drivers idle, making for a noisy environment at night.

Maybe I’ve just been lucky, but aside from some major thunder storms, I haven’t been through Muskogee, Oklahoma when it’s been ugly.
If you’re heading along the Muskogee Turnpike (Oklahoma 351/OK 165), you won’t see the little truck stop on town. Traveling on US Highway 69 through Muskogee though, it’s hard to miss.
Arriving at the Muskogee Pilot, you’ll find 125 parking spaces, all of which are straight stalls. The paved lot fills up quickly around dark, since this is one of few truck stops along the busy US-69 Oklahoma route, which is a standard shortcut from I-44 down toward the Dallas, Texas area.
Though a little cramped, the parking lot was clean, in relatively decent shape and is very well lit. I felt safe.
Muskogee’s Pilot has 6 big rig fuel lanes with DEF and an easy exit straight onto the highway. There’s a fuel wait in the mornings and late afternoon but in & out is easy enough. New squeegees and clean water made for easy bug removal from my insect-plastered windshield.
Wow. They were clean! Not huge but adequate for this size of truck stop. Looks like they’ve had a recent remodel, too.
The showers have apparently been nicely remodeled some time over the past year. I’ll include some photos so you can see what I’m saying. My shower was spotless, smelled clean and came stocked with soap & warm, fresh towels, washcloth & bath mat. When I’m impressed by the shower condition, I usually leave a $2 gratuity – as I did here.
Subway hasn’t been my favorite over the last year. I’ve had a few bad experiences with the franchise regarding freshness, but this Subway was really nice. They were fast, gave ample portions using very fresh ingredients! Quite pleased.
There’s also a hot deli and Cinnabon in this Pilot. Those cinnamon rolls are so gooey fresh!
Staff was attentive and worked efficiently. They were very friendly and had a smile for everyone from what I saw. No complaints here.
In a Nutshell…
This is really a nice little place to stop. I’ve been through here quite a few times and it can get really crowded – especially if you’re late getting parked. Remember, space is rather limited.
If you’re headed north on the turnpike toward Tulsa & the truck stop is full, there’s a service plaza just 1-2 miles north on the toll road. Otherwise, you can head over to the Walmart just a couple blocks east on Highway 62.
As for amenities, there’s a small game room & laundry. Also a CAT scale next to the fuel islands.
