(Formerly Boggy Depot State Park) Historic Boggy Depot Park, located in Atoka, provides a refreshing, restful place for campers to enjoy the beauty of southeastern Oklahoma. This park gets its name from Clear Boggy Creek and from its use as a Confederate commissary depot during the Civil War. In 1972, Boggy Depot was added to the National Register of Historic Places. While it was once a state park, Boggy Depot Park is now being managed by the Chickasaw Nation. **
