Named after the Kiamichi River this hilly pine woods region of Oklahoma is also known as Little Dixie. Abundant wilderness areas with glorious mountains, cypress-lined bayous, pristine lakes, rivers, and streams connect you to nature. With 12 state parks and close to a million acres of wildlife, the area is a destination for fishing, hunting, and some of the most spectacular fall foliage in the Midwest. Get a good view of the Ouachita National Forest from Poteau, Oklahoma's Cavanal Hill, dubbed "the world's highest hill" and just one foot shy of a designation as a mountain. Climb down and take a drive on the breathtaking Talimena Scenic Drive.
