Serving Ottawa County and Northeast Oklahoma
Miami, the seat of Ottawa County, is nestled between 2 waterways: the Neosho River and Spring River. It is in the northeast corner of Oklahoma and is served by State Highway 125 and US Highways 59 and 69, just north of the mighty Grand Lake and 25 miles from Joplin, MO. Tulsa is 75 miles away.
Miami is named after the Miami tribe, and is pronounced "My-am-muh." It was originally a trading post called Jimtown in the sparsely settled region set aside for a number of small Indian tribes.
Miami, Oklahoma, and Ottawa County are a paradise for the outdoorsman. Green Country also offers great hunting, fishing, camping and more. Mountain streams and many lakes are found throughout Green Country. Miami is also home to the top rated Peoria Ridge Golf Course.
