Kenton Is One Of The Most Isolated And Remote Towns In Oklahoma
I don’t know about you, but the idea of heading out of town to a remote and isolated spot in Oklahoma sounds pretty inviting right about now. Of course, we can wait. The small town of Kenton is located in extreme western Oklahoma in the area known as the “Panhandle.” It’s the gateway to Black Mesa State Park, and with only 17 residents in town, there’s not a whole lot going on in this remote town. However, don’t let that stop you from visiting. This area has some of the best nighttime skies and is perfect for an escape from the city.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
