Just FYI, John has a one track mind, and Durant is on that track.

You had mentioned researching towns around Lake Eufaula? What towns had you looked at. That would help.

Just to let you know though, if you want actual "lakeside property" then Grand Lake is your best bet. On most Oklahoma Lakes the actually shoreline property is limited. The restrictions on Grand Lake are less restrictive.

Again John, thanks for your input..i sure have some thinking to do!

For Oklahomagirl, thank you for your input as well. I'm thinking Grand Lake is completely out, sure do want and NEED some peace and quiet!

For Eddie....thank you for your suggestions and ideas as well. I have never been to Oklahoma, so the areas i was looking into was towns right around Lake Eufala. I willl have to take a trip there.

I dont think that John has a 1 track mind either, i just think he really loves Durant!! Which is fine, i want to hear the good, the bad and the in between so that i can make a proper decision!

THANK YOU ALL!!

If you have any other questions, let me know! I've lived here my whole life, and been to all parts of the state! By the way, my brother and dad both live in Durant, and they like it!

I grew up in NE Oklahoma and have lived on Grand Lake. I used to take the kids down to Broken Bow for a trip every Spring. There is a weird time warp you go through when travelling to SE Oklahoma. You would want to visit before committing to a move there. Re Lake Eufala, McAlester is going to be the place you go shopping and is a nice place to live as well.
Good Luck!!!

For an added plus, the weather is somewhat less harsh about venturing to extremes in the Durant area. It very seldom drops below zero during the winter. However, an ice storm causes more trouble than a typical snow storm in that area. Bad ice storms don't happen every winter. Also it isn't in the part of the state where 100s start up first during the season and last to leave. Probably a little less windy as well.

I can't disagree with any of the other comments. But, you may also want to consider the Lake Tenkiller area (i.e., Paradise Hill) and Tahlequah in northeast Oklahoma. Very beautiful areas, (like the others).

This area sits on the foothills of the Ozark Mountains. Tenkiller is a deep blue water lake. Paradise Hill is a small incorporated community that overlooks the lake. Nice homes there and quite a few retirees. There are other community in the area also, I just happened to have lived in Paradise Hill for a while.

Tahlequah is the capital of the Cherokee Nation and the main campus of Northeastern State University. I've worked and spent a lot of time in just about every part of the state over the years. If I were to move back to Oklahoma again this is where I would like to live (just my opinion). I'm in Venice, FL now...wow!

Tenkiller, other than Lake Murray, is my favorite Oklahoma Lake. Beautiful with pine trees and right there on the edge of the Ozarks. I get tired of seeing the boats with the Rebel flag on there, though.

(Nothin' against the Stars & Bars personally, I just know its offensive to some/many people so I wouldn't be one to fly it out and about.)
