Located in southeastern Oklahoma, the park was established in 1986. It spans over 2,600 acres of land and water bodies. The area is known for its rugged terrain with scenic trails ideal for hiking and horseback riding.
The name originates from McGee Creek which runs through it; a reservoir within also shares this moniker. This body of water provides opportunities for fishing and boating activities.
In addition to outdoor recreation facilities, there are accommodations like cabins available on-site as well as camping grounds.
Over time, conservation efforts have been implemented to preserve local flora/fauna making it an ecological haven today.
