We thinking about moving to Loco. My husband was born in OK, left when he was 2 Years old and made it to Texas. Now we ended up in New Mexico 25 miles north of Sierra Blanca. Doesn't like it really much.
How are the people in Loco? Friendly to newcomers? How far to the next Grocery store or Dr. Office?
We lived in East Texas in a little town near Tyler, TX before we moved to NM and we liked the little town feel. I wrote the post from the woman from Alaska. Must be a nice lady.
Hope to hear something

I live in Duncan, Oklahoma. My husband and I drove through Loco just a week ago on our way to eastern Oklahoma.

Honestly, it's a very rural area. Admittedly we only drove on the main road through town, but all we saw were a couple of run down vacant business buildings and a few homes. There might have been something open, maybe a post office, but I can't really remember what it was because I blinked, and we were already leaving the town area.

The closest grocery store would be in Comanche, Oklahoma, which is a very small town about 18 miles west on Highway 53. That grocery store is not a supersized Walmart. I think it's an IGA. You would have to go to Duncan (about 28 miles from Loco) for a Walmart Superstore. There is a small doctor's office in Comanche. The closest hospital is Duncan Regional Hospital, but there is a much smaller hospital in Waurika, Oklahoma, too. (Waurika is about 33 miles from Loco going south on Highway 81.)

I can't really speak to the friendliness of the people in Loco. However, I would think that they would be friendly and welcome newcomers. Most Oklahomans do.

A small town feel shouldn't have to feel dead. So why live in Loco, unless you're enchanted by the name?

Loco is extremely rural and quiet (which I love). Get ready for some great small town football and basketball. If I remember correctly (lived in Southern Oklahoma for many years) Loco kids went to Velma-Alma.

Also, as mentioned, you'll be close to Waurika and some of the best catfish in the world at Bill's Catfish.
