Hugo Oklahoma is known as Circus Town USA. It is the home of several circus's. One of which is Kelly Miller Circus. It is also known for its annual Blue Grass Festival. Bill Grant is the founder of this attraction. Hugo is also know for Kiamichi Park / Hugo Lake. Little Dixie sponsored the Americorps in building cabins, and a marina on Hugo Lake. They are currently in the process of building more, larger cabins, and a motel. Hugo lake has several attractions. Such as, hiking, hunting, camping, swimming, boating, fishing, and a archery range. It is a great place to escape the busy city life, but remember bug repellent.

For anyone with a personal plane of their own, Hugo's Municipal Airport would allow them to drop in and fuel up. It has the best fuel prices in OK. It has Jet A and 100 LL. I would encourage anyone who would enjoy a small town getaway to check this little town out.
