Originally built as a health improvement resort in 1994, the Chickasaw Nation recently purchased, renovated and are now opening the facility for its new function on the Arbuckle Lake - a secluded setting on an ancient mountain ideal for group gatherings.

“This ribbon cutting represents another exciting new development in Murray County,” said Gov. Anoatubby. “We believe this facility will offer an inviting atmosphere which will help visitors feel at home here in Chickasaw Country.”

With sweeping panoramic views of surrounding hills, sparkling blue waters and lush greenery, the Chickasaw Retreat is ideal for hosting parties, business retreats, family reunions, weddings, and receptions.

“This center is part of our effort to develop new tourism venues and help promote economic development in this area,” Gov. Anoatubby said. “We believe the Chickasaw Retreat and Conference Center provides an ideal destination for work, play, rest and relaxation.”
