Marshall County Economic Development Authority
Marshall County has a population around 16,000. While Marshall County only has two towns, Madill and Kingston, close-knit communities are sprinkled all throughout the county. Madill is a 4A school, and Kingston is a 3A school. Both school districts provide a wide variety of activities for the students, including sports programs, band, FFA, and many other student organizations that fit the needs and interests of Marshall County youth.
Marshall County is host to plenty of events and activities throughout the year. The National Sand Bass Festival is a much-anticipated annual event held the first week in June. The festival features nightly free music, carnival rides, a variety of vendors, and plenty of fun for the entire family. The Reuel Little Classic is an annual half marathon/10K/5K/Fun Run that attracts over 250 runners and brings out the whole community to cheer on their friends and family. The Marshall County Fair is held each September, and showcases the craftsmanship and hard work of Marshall County residents through fair and livestock exhibits. Fun family events are held each night, and the fair ends with the livestock show on Saturday morning.
Marshall County sits in the arms of Lake Texoma, with access to multiple marinas and beaches. Lake Texoma is the second largest lake in Oklahoma. We have some of the best striper fishing around, and if fishing isn't your thing, you can stretch out on some of our sandy beaches to relax and enjoy the lake. Lake Texoma is also great for skiing, wakeboarding, tubing, kayaking, stand up paddleboarding, and sailing, just to name a few.
Along with the lake, Marshall County boasts: two golf courses, Buncombe Creek Golf and Chickasaw Pointe Golf Club; Madill Art Club and Ruby Adkins Gallery; Museum of Southern Oklahoma; and plenty of cute boutiques and stores for shopping.
Although Marshall County has plenty to offer, we know sometimes it is nice to get out of town. Luckily, Marshall County is in close proximity to Ardmore, where you often can find events at the Hardy Murphy Coliseum and Heritage Hall; or Durant, which is home to the Choctaw Casino and Resort. If you are looking for a little bit bigger city to enjoy, Marshall County is situated only 120 miles from both Dallas and Oklahoma City, for an easy and quick day trip or weekend getaway.
