I remember several in southern Virginia when I was flying there in the mid 70s.  A lot of those runways have gone away, probably due to the cost of maintaining them.  Okmulgee now only has one runway when even 20 yrs ago they still had two of the original three.

As of about 10 years ago, the field in La Junta, Colorado looked like it hadn't been touched since the end of the war. Still had all three runways and the old shack now being used as an FBO's office. I believe all three runways are still intact.

Looks like they are only still using 12-30 and 8-26.
And..  12-30 is not in good shape.
