Southeast Oklahoma, known as Kiamichi Country, boasts some of the Sooner State’s most magnificent scenery. This is Oklahoma’s mountain country, where the Ouachitas, the San Bois, the Pines, the Jack Forks, and the Kiamichis dominate the landscape. In autumn, these peaks take on vibrant shades of scarlet, pumpkin, and gold; in spring, they are clad in colorful wildflowers. Forests of towering pines and hardwoods climbing into clear blue skies create unrivaled rural skylines. Picturesque streams and 23 lakes—some of the purest water in the U.S.—are home to bass, bluegill, trout, and more. Oklahoma’s largest lake, Lake Eufaula, covers more than 102,000 acres of water and features 600 miles of scenic shoreline and an abundance of beautiful sandy beaches. Robbers Cave, where tunnels, chambers, and labyrinths are carved into sandstone, was the hideout of the James Gang, the Dalton Gang, the Rufus Buck Gang, Belle Starr, and other outlaws.
This region is comprised of Choctaw, Haskell, Latimer, LeFlore, McCurtain, Pittsburg, and Pushmataha counties.
