History of Jones' Landing

Memories Cabin at Jones' Landing Louis and Anna Ree Jones practiced hospitality in a big way, a tradition we are carrying on to this day.  During their tenure, beginning in 1966 and lasting until Louis' demise in the 1990's, a virtual parade of notable personalities have partied and relaxed right here at Jones' Landing.  Hoyt Axton, songwriter (“Never Been to Spain,” “Joy to the World,” “The No No Song,” “The Pusher”), singer (Boney Fingers), and actor (Gremlins, The Black Stallion) made Jones' Landing his playground until illness prevented his return.  Barry Switzer, Dallas Cowboys and Oklahoma University football coach, unwound here.  David Boren, former Oklahoma governor and Oklahoma University president, was a frequent guest.  Ferguson Jenkins (Chicago Cubs, 1967-1980), Ray Price (country music legend), John Hartford (wrote “Gentle on My Mind”), and Texas Shorty (world champion fiddler) all sojourned here, to name a few.


Cane field along Mt. Fork River A local group, The Southern Scudders, have immortalized their time here with their song “The Legend of Louis Jones.”  Nestled in the foothills of the Kiamichi Mountains, Jones' Landing is a private get-away with a dramatic past. Originally an ancient Caddo settlement, lodge mounds are still visible, and the occasional arrow head surfaces in the sandy loam. A complete prehistoric Acrocanthosaurus Atokensis was found one-half mile from here. Towering cane, lush oaks, and majestic cypress grace the grounds. The Mountain Fork River is the focal point, grand and inviting, right at your doorstep. Beavers Bend, Broken Bow Lake, museums, trout fishing, and canoeing are minutes away.  You can avail yourself of the numerous activities the area offers, or simply sit on your porch and let the gentle river sooth away the stress of the life you have temporarily left behind.

Come see us. The river is calling, the birds are singing, and adventure is waiting for you.

We can't wait to see you!
