Plan a trip to Okemah to discover the birthplace of legendary folk musician Woody Guthrie. Learn more about the man who sang “This Land is Your Land” and explore the city’s Woody Guthrie statue and murals, the Okfuskee County History Center or Okemah Lake. See if Lady Luck is on your side at the Creek Nation Casino or play a round at the 9-hole Okemah Golf Course. At Rustic Acres, visitors can navigate their way through a corn maze, pick the perfect pumpkin or go on a hayride each fall.

When hunger strikes, a visit to the Hen House Cafe is a must. This popular eatery serves homestyle comfort foods and fresh baked pie. Satisfy your caffeine cravings at the Okemah Coffee Company or head to Sooner Drug & Gifts where you can pull up a seat at the soda fountain and order a delicious handmade shake.

Okemah takes its name after a Kickapoo chief and is the county seat of Okfuskee County.
