Chilocco is an unincorporated community in Kay County, Oklahoma, United States. The community is located in northern Kay County, 5.4 miles (8.7 km) south-southwest of Arkansas City, Kansas.

Its name was derived from that of the Chilocco Indian School, which in turn most likely took its name from the Creek tci lako, which literally meant "big deer" but typically referred to a horse. A post office opened in Chilocco on March 27, 1883.
