If you a re traveling to far southeast Oklahoma and want to “get off the beaten path” try traveling the mostly paved road between Stringtown and Antlers via the McGee Creek Reservoir. This road is not well known and certainly not well marked on a GPS or state map. But it is 90% paved, although the pavement is in rough shape in some places and coated with gravel in others.
Why take this road? Are there any outstanding locations to investigate, ghost towns to explore, or epic scenes to behold? Nope. Just an interesting road through the back country of Oklahoma. Follow my GPS route and wind your way through Stringtown to the east. McGee Creek is about 30 miles away along a fairly decent road. Take your time, don’t get in a hurry, stop and take photos of the “rock farm”, and just enjoy yourself.
Here is a map of the route. You can download a KML file or drop me an email for a GPX file.
