The only reason I posted that Pryor Creek is the actual name of Pryor is that is what a couple of places on the net say and I thought it interesting. Omitting creek only serves to stop confusion between Pond Creek and Pryor, but Pryor Creek was kept as the official name. Perhaps the website for the town of Pryor is mistaken, it is immaterial to me one way or another. COP-City of Pryor

I see, that's a news one on me, having grown up in the area everyone just knew it as Pryor. Immaterial to me what they want to call it either. I fished in Pryor Creek though.

There really isn't a bad part of Pryor. If super small is of interest, Adair or Salina would be a viable choice. Adair puts you outside both Pryor and Vinita so you would have some shopping available, and it puts you close to both Hudson and Grand Lake as well as the turnpike to Tulsa. It's schools have a great reputation. Salina is just across the bridge over Hudson so the fishing would be close. Salina doesn't have a bad area either. Being on the water on Hudson would be nice, Spavinaw isn't that far away, Blue Hole is close. and there is a Harps supermarket there (I think it is Harps).

But I would look at Pryor itself. It is a nice community with a good infrastructure. I would tend to stay away from anything close to Highway 69......they get about 15,000 semi's through there daily (It is on a major Kansas City/Dallas route).

I forgot about Choteau.......nice quiet town. Lots of Amish/Mennonites. Dutch Pantry is there which makes a good sandwich and carries a lot of Amish products. Not too far from Hudson, not too far from Gibson, not too far from the Illinois watershed, easy quick access to Pryor and Tulsa. Again, no "unsafe" areas and pretty good schools. I don't think it has a supermarket in town, but it's only about 6 or 7 miles north to Pryors super Wal-mart.

OK, driving up 69 from Choteau, on the south end of Pryor, there is a newer fancy looking sign that says Pryor Creek now. So I am eating my words a little. I still think it is a change back to a little used older name, just for the sake of being novel.

Pryor Creek is the historical name of the area that dates back to the time when the Osage Indians were induced to move into the area with the support and encouragement of the Chouteau fur trade dynasty. The creek was named after Nathaniel Pryor who served on the Lewis & Clark expedition and who established a trading post near the juncture of Pryor Creek and Neosho River in 1820.
