This is also the reason Rand McNally named Grand Lake and Grove as the top retirement area in the US a couple years ago.

If owning right on the water is not important to you, then any area in the eastern part of the state would be a good choice. Around Lake Tenkiller is beautiful, same with Broken Bow. With Tenkiller, you can fish for trout below it's dam on the lower Illinois river year round, and the trout fishing is outstanding!

Actually you can own land "directly on the water" on Lake Raymond Gary in Choctaw County. I am a real estate broker and have listings on the lake.

We are from Texas (Houston area) and my husband and I bought land in Hugo OK for the reasons you mentioned - good hunting nearby, good fishing much lower cost of living (for some reason when you cross the border into Texas costs seem to double or triple?). We finally chose it for it's proximity to Texas since our extended family is all over Texas. Even golf and casinos nearby though we don't practice either of those often! It also is a nice sized town so you have most of the conveniences with a Walmart, restaurants, motels, etc. When we have visited the people have been some of the friendliest in the U.S. We are in our 40's now but likely plan to retire there within the next 20 to 25 years. The way life is moving so fast it will be here before we know it!

I was referring to the larger bodies of water in Oklahoma. There are several very small lakes such as Lake Raymond Gary where you can own water front in Oklahoma. But you are comparing a 390 acre lake to one over 47,000 acres too.

Stigler is great and you can own land on the water because I am thinking of buying a 3 acre parcel that is on the water.
