McGee Creek Reservoir is located about 17 miles southeast of the city of Atoka in one of the state's most scenic areas. It impounds the waters of McGee Creek in eastern Atoka County. Virtually all the land surrounding the lake is covered with dense forest. Atoka County was originally named Shappaway, but in 1885 was changed to Atoka. It was named for Captain Atoka Ochlatubbe whose name is the Choctaw word, "hitako" or Hetoka, meaning "ball ground." The area provides numerous water-oriented recreation opportunities for the visitor. The lower part of the reservoir was cleared for the protection of water skiers, boaters and fishermen. The upper portion and forested areas provide scenic enjoyment and good hunting. The Natural Scenic Recreational Area, covering 8,900 acres, lies to the northeast, providing
hunting, fishing and nature studies. A 10,000 acre wildlife management area lies north and northwest of the reservoir. Shoreline length-64 miles.

McGee Creek State Park has eight Lake Huts located near the Potapo Campground.  Although rustic in appearance, these huts provide shelter from the elements that Mother Nature can unleash whether it is rain or the summer heat. The huts are approximately 12 feet in width and 24 feet in length, and each has a screened in back porch overlooking the lake.  The accommodations include one set of bunk beds with mattresses, table, chairs, fireplace and air conditioning.  There are no linens.  Water and a bar-b-que grill are available outside each hut.  A restroom with showers is within walking distance. These huts are available for reservation through the park office or by calling 580-889-5822 during normal business hours.  All major credit cards accepted.
