South Central Oklahoma, known as Arbuckle Country, is a haven for water enthusiasts due to the sparkling waters of many lakes and freshwater streams. The Arbuckle Mountains are capped by distinctive rows of protruding rocks and are adjacent to the clear mineral springs, waterfalls, including the highest waterfall in the state, and lush forests of the Chickasaw National Recreation Area. The Blue River is a favorite of trout fisherman; Lake Texoma, with dozens of inviting coves and a sprinkling of islands with white sandy beaches, is home to world-class striper fishing.
This region is comprised of Atoka, Bryan, Carter, Coal, Garvin, Johnston, Love, Marshall, Murray and Pontotoc counties. Two tribal nations are headquartered in South Central Oklahoma.
