About the Town of Big Cabin

Big Cabin, Oklahoma

The Town of Big Cabin is located in the southern region of Craig county in Northeastern Oklahoma. Our town is located near the three main lakes in Northeastern Oklahoma, Grand Lake, Lake Hudson, and Oologah Lake.

The town's name was created when the MKT railway in the late 1800's named a switch station and referenced the big wooden cabin used by the Cherokee Indians. The community was dubbed the “Hay Capital of the World” because of the amount of hay produced and shipped between 1883 and 1910 (Oklahoma Historical Society, 2012).
