<2>The pronunciation we've provided is our attempt to give a phonetic pronunciation for Okreek. While it might not be exactly right, hopefully it will be close. If we have it wrong or there's a better way to pronounce the name, please contact us through our Feedback Page.

When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Okreek or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the United States Postal Service (USPS).
<6>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Okreek) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Okreek. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Okreek
