Madill Travel Guide: 11 reviews and 14 photos

Madill is the county seat of Marshall County which is located in south central Oklahoma close to the border of Texas. This area was at one time part of an area known as Pickens County which was Indian territory, and was part of the Chicksaw Nation from 1837 after they arrived from the east. 50 years ago Madill was sand streets, cotton wagons and metal awnings. Oil played a big part in the county’s history. There with leases and boundary disputes with Texas which ended up being finalised by the Supreme Court. Principal industries now are steel & wire, peanut farming, agriculture and livestock and of course tourism. Marshall County is the smallest county in the State.

The area is popular for recreation with Lake Texoma stretching one of its many arms into the county. There are plenty of camping facilities, resorts and cottages and enough outdoor activities to keep everyone entertained. Striped bass fishing and golfing is very popular.

Fort Washita lies approximately 15 miles east of Madill (Marshall County) and 15 miles west of Durant (Bryan County). It is a historical site spread out over 150 acres which contains the well-preserved, partially restored remains of an American Indian fort built in 1842.

    An interesting page on an out-of-the-way destination! I am partial to a good feed of nuts myself, and that Chinese restaurant also sounded inviting!

    I have a dear friend buried in the cemetery here. All I remember is the water tower and the railroad. Glad to see Fort Washita and Texoma on the page.
