Scullyville is a small unincorporated rural community in Le Flore County, Oklahoma, United States. Scullyville, then known as Oak Lodge, was the former capitol of the Choctaw Nation, the capitol of the Mushulatubbee District of the Choctaw Nation, and a stop on the California Road. Walker's Station, a stage stand on the Butterfield Overland Mail route, was located in Scullyville. The name is derived from the Choctaw word for money, "iskulli" or "iskuli", as originally this was the place where annuity payments were collected. It is not spelled with a "k" in Oklahoma.

The community is part of the Fort Smith, Arkansas-Oklahoma Metropolitan Statistical Area.
