I don't know of any list but if I find something I'll post it. FYI: The dry counties in Oklahoma aren't really "dry." You can still buy beer at the local quick stop (albeit 3.2 only) and the real stuff at the liquor store. They even have bars in dry counties - you just have to BYOB and pay by the drink. I think it was once called "liquor by the drink."

When I lived in Arkansas (and I understand it's still that way) when you are in a dry county, it's really dry; there is nowhere in the county to purchase alcohol of any kind. Oklahoma's dry counties are strange - they're not dry they are just "damp."

Try this website. It doesn't provide a list but does provide phone numbers and contact info.

And then there are a few Oklahoma counties, such as Payne, that are wet Mon. thru Sat. and then totally dry on Sundays. You can't buy any drink of alcohol with your meal in a restaurant unless it's 3.2% beer.

I see this discussion is three years old but someone else may find it who is interested in Kingfisher, so I'll add a couple of dittos.

I grew up in Pampa, TX and Guymon, OK and went to school in Norman. I've not lived in Kingfisher but we drove through every time we drove to OKC from Guymon, and it seemed like a lovely little town. Flat yes, but flat is in my blood and I still crave it. Since college I've lived in Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco, and Oakland (from where I am writing this) and am looking forward to returning to some small town such as Kingfisher that's a short hop to OKC when I want to kick up my heels, and where a home costs 1/10 what it does in Cali, and where people still think working for a living is a desirable value.

Despite growing up in tornado alley, I have never seen a tornado. I wanted to, but every time the sirens went off we were dragged to the nearest cellar or basement, and often it was after dark. I'll probably have to take one of those two-week van tour deals and pay a wheelbarrow of money if I ever want to see one. With doppler radar they've become even less of a threat. The winds in western Oklahoma are real enough but vary greatly by season.
