it's cabin time™ in Kellyville
Kellyville, Oklahoma is located in northeastern Creek County and has a population of around 1,150 people. Small-town America at its finest. The town is named after James E. Kelly, who established a local trading post in 1893. St. Louis and Oklahoma City Railroad built a line through Kellyville in 1898.
Oklahoma’s worst train disaster took place just west of the town back in 1917 when two Frisco trains collided. 23 people were killed and 8 were injured. It remains one of the country’s bloodiest train wrecks due to a large amount of cattle deaths. Oil and gas were discovered nearby in 1915. This created a population boom and brought in construction for a refinery in Kellyville.
Heyburn Lake and Heyburn State Park are about a 6 ½ mile drive to the west of Kellyville. RV and tent camping are available, and the lake features picnic areas, a playground, a boat launch, swimming, and fishing. The Creek County Fairgrounds in Kellyville is the location for various local, county, state, and national events, including fairs, livestock shows & rodeos, trade shows, family reunions, conferences, banquets, and educational programs. The Kellyville Public Park has playground equipment, a pavilion, and picnic tables.
