Southwest Oklahoma, known as Great Plains Country, is a vast region of rugged natural beauty where neatly manicured farms and pastures are framed by the Wichita Mountains and granite boulders are crosshatched with canyons carved by mountain streams. The rugged profiles of the Wichita peaks rise in dramatic contrast to vast expanses of prairie populated by bison, longhorn, and elk that roam freely in the nation’s first national wildlife refuge. Farther north, the yellow maples of Red Rock Canyon, a landscape dominated by towering rock walls, look much like those in Vermont. Agriculture plays a dominant role in Southwest Oklahoma, allowing fields of wheat and cotton to flourish next to cattle and horse ranches.
This region is comprised of Beckham, Caddo, Comanche, Cotton, Custer, Greer, Harmon, Jackson, Jefferson, Kiowa, Roger Mills, Stephens, Tillman and Washita counties. Seven tribal nations are headquartered in Southwest Oklahoma.
