“Choctaw Landing is an all-in-one exclusive resort destination and the perfect place to unwind,” said Amy Davis, Choctaw Landing General Manager. “We are located just an hour north of the Oklahoma/Texas border and excited to open this new entertainment destination for Oklahomans and our friends and neighbors in Texas, Arkansas and Louisiana.”

An interactive circular steel sculpture at the entrance of Choctaw Landing will showcase Choctaw Social Dancers. The sculpture, designed by Choctaw artist Gene Smith, will feature an opening for guests to “join the dance,” interact with the dancers, and delve into the rich history woven into each character around the circle. The resort will also feature original artwork designed by multiple Choctaw artists.
The opening of the $238 million Choctaw Landing resort will create more than 400 jobs in Southeast Oklahoma and will have an estimated $95 million economic impact on the region.
Additionally, the Choctaw Nation is investing $7 million for road construction at the Choctaw Landing intersection to allow for traffic lights and turn lanes, and is working with the Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT) to make stormwater improvements, utility relocations, and widen Hwy 259, creating a three-lane road at the Choctaw Landing resort entrance and north to 259A.
