The U.S. states of Arkansas and Oklahoma are in the south central part of the country, northeast and north of Texas, respectively. The Coast Guard maintains aids to navigation on the Arkansas River waterway in Arkansas and the eastern part of Oklahoma, but those aids do not qualify as lighthouses. This page includes one private lighthouse on the river in Arkansas and one private lighthouse found on an Oklahoma lake.
Note: To be listed here, a lighthouse must actually serve as an aid to navigation. This means it must be located on a navigable lake or river and must be lit as a navigational aid at least during the local boating season.
ARLHS numbers are from the ARLHS World List of Lights.
