Atoka County Reviews

The things that I like about Atoka is that the people there are pretty friendly and easy going. Ameristate Bank is a friendly bank and will try their hardest to meet your needs. Tushka School in Atoka County is a great school to send your children to. Not only do they have a great academic program, but they have great sports programs as well. One thing that I would like to see improve or change is something for children to do. There isn't much for kids to do here.

Atoka County is made up of about 4,000 people. A lot of people refer to it as "small" or "crammed", but in my opinion, it's just right. We're a very close-nit community. We help each other out when times get rough.
However, there aren't many restaurants nearby, and the stores are limited. Also, the hospital here is basically a first-aid station. If you have something really wrong, then you'll probably want to make your way on down to Durant or McAlester.
Other than those few things, it's a great place to live and very family friendly.
I have lived in Atoka my entire life, from my experience from living here I would say that Atoka is average, it is not too great but it is not awful. I have slightly enjoyed it here but overall there isn't much here in Atoka. if you are looking a fun filled town Atoka isn't the pace to go, we don't have that much to offer around here but it is a great community.
