List of census-designated places in Oklahoma

Images of the Tiawah CDP
and of the actual community
The Tiawah CDP (in yellow) lies east of Oklahoma State Highway 88.
The actual Tiawah community lies on either side of Highway 88 in the midst of the Tiawah Hills.

The list of Census Designated Places in Oklahoma contains those areas defined by the US Census Bureau as CDPs. A CDP is a "statistical entity ... comprising a densely settled concentration of population that is not within an incorporated place".[1] CDPs have no governmental powers. For some reason the majority of CDPs in Oklahoma are in the northeastern quarter of the state.

Many of the CDPs were named for communities located within the defined entities, or for nearby communities. Where known, the associated communities are also listed for reference. The sources for the associated communities are primarily from Shirk's Oklahoma Place Names (ISBN 0-8061-2028-2), the United States Geological Survey, or the list of unincorporated communities in Oklahoma.
